    Amomynous got a reaction from UltraGizmo64 in Sonic Concept Art   
    This topic on Sonic retro may be of some use, it takes some looking though. Some of the links are already broken sadly, though someone collected many of the pictures into a download.
     
    Found this there.

    A title screen? The drawing style looks like Sonic CD, but the title seems to say "Sonic The Hedgehog Jamming!"
    The fact it has a greeting and is sighed 'Sonic Team' suggests it was gifted to someone.

    Some Sonic concept arts are really fantastic works of art.

    These look quite a bit more westernised than most of Sonic's expressions (drawn in the Japanese style that is), especially the sad faces, they look loonytunes-like.
    I do like that his quills are used as a part of his emote, kind of a shame they don't do that anymore.

    It's not quite the American classic Sonic, it's an amalgamation of both the American and Japanese design, it's a bit closer to American though.

    Drawn in the same more animalistic style as the first ever known concept art, poor little guy still doesn't have a name, drawings are still a little rough, they haven't been putting the polish into this.


    Same style put into logos, the middle one seems to say "My name is faster." his quills look neater already, some of those scruffy quills were probably scruffy drawing, though in the earliest concept he has a kinked quill that looks quite deliberate.

    Note that in his earliest concepts (which are Japanese) he tends towards a slightly more agressive air that more closely matches his American 'buttface' counterpart than does his later Japanese artworks.

    Blaze the cat
    You know what? Something like this would have made an awesome 'burning Blaze', who said super forms had to be bright and shiny? Especially regarding Sol emeralds as opposed to chaos emeralds.

    One thing I always wondered about, is it me or does the top-right one have a moustache?
    Sonic on the bottom right looks strangely cute regardless the harsh expression, probably partly that I think he's actually even stouter than his settled design, and scruffier, the effect is he looks a tad more like a real hedgehog.


    The Miles Electric didn't exist yet

    I found this pretty cool box concept, I do prefer Sonic's pose here, the background's a bit generic though, it's also really low res, maybe it's a photocopy? That white mark next to Sonic's eye does look like maybe the image that was photocopied got scratched, or there was a small object in the photocopier with it.
    Note Shahra's ring doesn't have any detail on it.


    I came across an expression sheet for Sonic himself which was concept art for Sonic Adventure, haven't seen it since; seems to be rare, anyone have it or know somewhere it's hosted?

    Reseinn (DeviantART,Pixiv,Twitter,Twitpic) for sure. I swear she sold her soul to the devil for her powers.
     
    I warn you her art isn't always strictly platonic in nature, fanart included,nothing graphic as far as I can tell, but highly suggestive; probably still NSFW. If you want to avoid that as much as possible then stick to her DeviantART.

    Prototype Sonic.
     
    Very cute,quite bendy and wacky, preferring exaggerated expression over the consistency of Sonic's shapes, seems to help it not look 'cutesy' as Sonic's first 'complete' design though(along with the messy quills) , as he looks friendly when he dang well wants to, rather than generally having it readily identifiable in a more consistent and defined design(which was a good idea, by the way).
    Notable for 'butt-brow' which is lacking from the final Japanese design.
     
     
     
    Early Green Hill Zone design.

    Amomynous reacted to Rey Skywalker-Ren in Sonic the Franchise's Personality   
    I want Sonic to have his personality from the storybook games... a smart and cocky guy who had a get it done attitude and would make a joke or two that fit his character on top of being someone who cared more for others then himself. Thats the Sonic I know and love and I'd like to see him again.
    As for adventure, I chose Sonic CD style as it has a bit of darkness and light and had a little humor and cocky moments yet we know when we had to take things seriously.

    Amomynous reacted to Badnik Mechanic in Can we talk about the Sonic Social Media outlets for a moment...   
    Before you all go 'there's a topic on this' this is very different. 
    That one has basically become a 'The Sonic twitter/Facebook page did this' *insert funny thing* I'd like this one to talk more about peoples thoughts on it.
    For the last couple of months, Aaron Webber, better known as Ruby Eclipse was hired to run all of Sonic's social media outlets as well as be the main go to guy for community managers, I'm not 100% if he is the community manager for the NA side of Sega, but odds are his role isn't limited to just the social media stuff. 
    And since then, the Sonic Social media outlet went from being a very inactive thing which would often say 'here is a new trailer' or 'look at this image we made which tells you about a thing' to a highly active thing which encourages interaction and engagement, it's even crossed several times into breaking the fourth wall and interacting with other franchises, even franchises like Deus Ex have even interacted with it, and just today Nintendo of America responded positively to it.
    However, some people don't like it, some people see it as just turning Sonic into a joke, or a meme machine to appeal to a certain age group or fandom that they don't like. 
    Others seem to love it. 
    My thoughts on it are as follows...
    Boom and to an extend Sonic Lost World didn't do much for Sonic's reputation, Boom effectively undid 3 years worth of work in building a franchises reputation, and with the delay in Boom 2 Fire/Ice, there is nothing to promote the brand as a game in a positive light. 
    So what can you do? You have to embrace everything, even the bad. What has been a joke by the fans is now a joke by the brand, it's no longer a 'protective' thing which must not be officially commented on, instead of keeping fans at arms length and saying "You can have your fun, but... we can't join in" it's become "You guys look like you're having a lot of fun with our brand, can we come and play too?" 
    I for one think this is great, whilst the quality of the games is still a big question mark which will be judged when the time comes, in terms of doing the brand favours, I personally think everything that Aaron has done so far has been right. If I look at all the social media stuff, there is not one thing which has been done which harms the brand, in fact he's single handily made Sonic relevant with these short term interactions with fans and non fans. Hell look how much Sonic's tweets have been retweeted and favourites following Webber's appointment, it's sky-rocketed and not for bad reasons. 
    For those fans who don't like it, who think it's ruining the brand... frankly... I'm not angry at you for disliking something I like, I pity you, I feel sorry for you, you're so angry because the official twitter account is posting some genially funny stuff, which is interacting positively with other brands and even journalists, even Jim Sterling and IGN have said the Sonic twitter account burnt them good, it's giving so many people pleasure, laughter and joy, and you just feel hatred and disgust, how sorry for you, you don't get to feel that enjoyment which so many others are. 
    Before Webber took over and started doing what he did, you never had people like Kel "Who loves orange Soda" Mitchell openly referencing the account 

    Nor did you have the voice actors actively engaging with the fans and fansites in character. 
    Embrace the lot I say, the brand is full of silly things even when it's doing stuff right all of the time. 
    I say it should keep doing stuff like this.
    Anyone else? If not... honestly why?

    Amomynous got a reaction from C.J in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    Most people seem to agree this is bothersome, though it seems to be glossed over somewhat because of Sonic Generations lack of story; that really isn't an excuse, it isn't even an explanation, if characters are going to be that useless why are they there?
    Time to tell you what I'm actually talking about: One thing I despise about Sonic Generations is how the other characters are treated so much like they’re mere collectibles.

    It’s particularly painful when Sonic’s unconscious and they just stand there cheering, these are characters that can fight, seriously outnumber Eggman, all of them have a bone to pick with him for destroying time and space and a fair number of them would have a serious problem with the fact Sonic is hurt. It’s so bloody cheap, these characters abilities and in some cases, loyalty to their friend is completely glossed over just so Sonic can be injured so unable to fight and then still save the day.

    Amomynous got a reaction from Mogtaki in questions about Korea   
    This is something I've been considering for a while now, but your interest in Korea strikes me as a tad obsessive, and I think this is what is making people angry. Perhaps you are stereotyping Korea as this magical place that it is not?
    It's good to study language and other countries, but putting putting Korean words on your art and  making your characters Korean on not-korean forums and announcing your love to the world strikes me as...off. What are you in love with? Is it not a flawed country (or rather, two countries) just like ours? Isn't it just everyday life for the people living there? Why post things in Korean when your audience doesn't understand?

    Amomynous got a reaction from Jaguar360 in Favourite Sonic Quotes in games/shows.   
    Basically everything Sonic and Caliburn say to/about each other.
    Sonic:"Think you can sharpen this dull piece of rust?"
    Caliburn: "Fool! It is you who is dull!"
    -------
    King Arthur: "Seems the only thing you are good for is running away."
    Caliburn:"You underestimate him, he also has a big mouth."
    --------
    Sonic: "With Excalibur by my side, I'm unstoppable!"
    Excalibur/Caliburn(To Merlina): "I will teach you the error of your ways."
    Sonic: "Heh heh! My trusty sword's gonna teach you a lesson!"
    This kind of caught my attention because the tone seems to be along the lines of "Look at my awesome sword! :D" I find it amusing that amongst all the bickering he really likes the oversized letter opener anyway. I think it's mutual, Caliburn just has a stiff upper lip.
    --------
    Of course there is the game's climax.
    Sonic: "Merlina, every world has it's end, I know that's kinda sad but that's why we've got to live life to the fullest. At least that's what I figure."
