  1. Ive been out of the fandom for a while. I was at college on a break when my friend called me over, I saw the new game on IGN and almost gaged, What the heck happed happend to Knuckles? I had no idea there was a massive "reneisence" of Sonic in the works, needless to say this was a suprise to me, and a bad one at that. Sonic looks passable, the extra spines look silly and the blue arms are just really off putting. Why is he wearing a scarf? Knux....looks retarded. I look at him and see Crush Bandicoot, if thats what they were going for they succeeded. I get that they want a big strong character but this was way overboard. He looks like a deviant art knock off. WAY too tall, Tiny head compared to his body and those feet are too small. Poor Knux has been the series punchbag since shadow and got progessivley stupider and insignificant as the series went on and now we have this.... Amy and tails look pretty good, I hate the tape fetish they got going on but I can get by that. Knux on the other hand... gets worse every time I look at him. I played around with the render in photoshop to see If could make it somewhat appealing to me while still keeping in line with the direction the devs are want to take the characters. I feel its a good comprimse. I hope these new designs are not permanent, I know its been stated they arent but that could change if its popular enough.

  6. I really enjoyed SA1's HUB worlds. They had alot of charm to them and they weren't too big. It was a lot of fun exploring them to find hidden chao eggs, upgrades and easter eggs. Metal sonic and that other robot inside the capsules in Eggmans base come to mind. I loved exploring the Egg carrier and finding out Eggman had a swimming pool, a locomotive chair, a monorail and even a maid to keep it all clean. The characters controlled exactly the same as they did in the stages, no speed caps at all. This meant getting around was fairly quick. Unfortunatley they felt the need to pad it out with those keys. HUB worlds can work for Sonic. Sonic is the kind guy, who is always looking for new things and places to explore. If done right, they can be really fun to mess around in. If the Sonic series was to use HUB worlds again, this should be the basis.
  7. The biolizard never really disturbed me, just confused me. I mean where the hell that that thing come from? A prototype of the ulitmate life form yes, but why is it a huge effing lizard? It was foreshadowed in the dark story but that was a blink and you'll miss it moment and even then wasnt really explained. The most disturbing thing with the biolizard for me was the giant tumors sonic and shadow hit with their face.

  9. Isnt It obivious? Maria is an alien. Lets be honest, In SA2 she looked really weird. I prefer the anime-esqe design. She looke good in the CG cutsences...what the hell happend with her in game model though.....? Also what the hell were sonic team thinking making shadow part alien, how could they think pulling a Star wars was a good idea?
  10. Finished my contribution, Just check your email. I really like the idea of some kinda complimation book for all the artwork. Although like you said this would have to be cleared by SEGA. Im not entirely sure what would have to be done for SEGA to ok it but I would assume it would involve giving them rights to the artwork to use as they please. Please dont quote me on that though as Im no legal expert.
  11. Gotta be generations for me. I know its so dam short but its also so dam good. When I get bored of boosting through enimies, I can switch to some old-school spin-dashing. Modern and classic, best of both.
  12. I wouldnt mind seeing an EP3, I would rather they just nix the whole sonic "4" thing and make a new game entirely. If we do see an EP3 heres what I want: Knuckles is a given, he used to be a prominent character that had purpose but lately hes been shoved aside and forgotten about. More original zones. Im all for the nostalgia factor they love so much but episode 1 and 2 felt really samey. Going through the rehased zones just felt like they were reusing motifs without any effort. That said, I would like to see blue spheres again. I think that would look great in full 3D. The elemental shields would be nice to see again maybe a couple of new power ups as well. Please use real instuments for the music and dont boss pinch music or that dam extra life jingle again. I hate hearing that at the end of every stage. Kinda sad since I loved it in the original game, it sounded so much better. Its pretty much a certainty that EP3 would be be based on S3&K, but Im hoping for something new. Time will tell...
  13. Hey, just been going through the old posts in the thread and I gotta say your stuff is awesome. Character designs are rich in detail and all have an energetic feel to them. That Death KIng comic is fanastic. I gotta ask, do you do this for a living? If not you easily could.
  14. since it is still Dec, I see no problem with posting this. Also I finally got my 5inch super sonic 2 pack and the QC is shocking to say the least. Not only was his face hanging off but there was marks, dirt and scuffs all over him. Convinced I could do a better job than a proffesional toy company I set to work and this was the result: Armed with a dremel, revotech joints, glue and modeling clay I have fixed the awful joints and he can actually stand now. Neck joint looks a bit weird but it turned out to be vital in keeping him upright. Tillting that giant head forward is istrumental to keeping him stood up. Planning on gutting a classic sonic for some option closed fist hands. Just need some matching yellow paint.
  15. Wow, there sure is alot of really talented artists on here. Im overwhelmed by really high standard. Lets see if i can match it. I mostly favour digital art work in the likes of Photoshop. Just so much eaiser to correct a mistake and references are just a tab away. My prefred style is comic books, lots of black shadows and stylized characters just get me going. Lets start with a self portrait. Merry Christmas from the mushroom kingdom. Very old pic. Wish I did something with the background. Will likely go back to this a some point. Cause I can. One thing I love about the sonic games is the new character art styles they come out with from time to time. This is one i tried to make on my own, I called it "QUEST" At one point I was working on a fangame and this is a concept for a level theme. A crystalized volcanno motif was what i was going for. Sadly I am not working on it anymore due to other projects. Hope you like, lots more to come.
  16. I know I have only litrealy just joined but I would really like to take part in this. Im big on art and take great pride in my work. I am by no means a profesional but I am not an amuter either. Looking at that list it was hard to choose what game I would like to represent. Dont think it should be that hard, just pick your fave right? I considered doing SA style but I have done that style before and want to try something different so I would opt for Colours.
