    Well, well.. It has been awhile, right? I guess I do want to update you guys on my art, so how about I post a couple things.

    So the Sonic Mania shirts are now a thing! The Triple Threat shirt features Sonic, Tails and ol' Knuc-Knuc and we got a nice Studiopolis shirt as well.

    UK folk gets a different version of the Triple Threat shirt but it's pretty much the same thing.

    This is being teased around by Aaron Webber and Gene Fujimori on twitter, looks like a pretty cool t-shirt! Also Tails is following Sonic on this so I guess it kinda confirms a co-op mode...? Hopefully I'm not reading into it too much!

    So I created some new sketches and I think they look pretty good:




    I thought this one looked really good, the first one I sketched might a bit a tad better but I like it. And even thoughtheres no Boom!SuperSonic I haz this.

    I haven't drawn good ole DBZ in a while but I really the franchise. So I thought my first dbz sketch in about month should make it to my topic.


    Edit: sorry I think I broke the rules. The three day one. Sorry again I forgot.

    I've been without paper for awhile but it's great having it again. I still have to practice my digital though.

    Some "new" stuff. I usually post lots of art on my Twitter so these aren't the newest.

    Before that,  it was called Sonic Heroes,  nowadays some call it Sonic World Adventure: Unleashed.

    One thing I'd like to see in this but don't think has any chance at all is Sonic Advance's Jump Dash. You just push forward twice in the air and it would give you a small bit of momentum. It wasn't too strong, but it was nice.
     
    By the way, I made this so I could have some album art for Studiopolis:
    I made it out of Sonic Mega Drive's cover, but removed Amy, since she doesn't seem to be in the game and I needed space for the logo :U

    There's some neat little throwbacks to other Sega games people have found.

    I'm a sucker for these things, I love sega in general so this game was made for me, the Segasonic popcorn shop, Daytona reference in the studio zone, can't wait to find more.

    Just watched that trailer for the first time and all I can say is

    I want this game so damn much.
    Christian Whitehead, Headcannon and the studios helping them are the fuckin' man. We might have just found our ideal retro Sonic talent, which would leave Sonic Team proper free to do its own thing and explore new paths for the blue blur. Hopefully, you know, worthwhile ones.

    I am definitely more of a Modern Sonic and modern gameplay fan in the series, but consider me deeply impressed with Sonic Mania! The animations, the graphics, the colors, the music...it's all absolutely beautiful and I am very excited with what I have seen so far.
    The detail in this game is incredible! So many visual treats...Even the title screen gives you something to look at with its beauty (gives me Sonic 3 vibes as well) with the island being shaped like Sonic's head:

    I've seen the trailers at least a dozen times each at this point and I see something new each any every time I look at it. I can't wait to make more delightful discoveries upon simply looking at the attractive and colorful levels with its vast details.
    You know what I am most excited about regarding Sonic Mania? 

    Team Sonic-Classic Style!-is playable. Bar the spin-offs and totally unnecessary sub-series games, I've waited TEN YEARS for Tails and Knuckles to be playable! 
    I actually don't mind seeing existing levels from the Classic games as they are iconic and the majority of them were a total blast to play through so I'm excited to be able to do that again-with some new twists incorporated in them at that. I'm looking forward to seeing the new levels that will appear for a totally new experience on the Classic side of Sonic.
    Looking at the gameplay, I am literally gasping in amazement with Sonic Mania just like I did 25 years ago as a 7 year old with how blown away I was with Sonic 1 when I saw it for the first time. Absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see more but for sure March 2017 needs to hurry up and get here!

    Oh man, check old this goofy old-timey vaudeville Eggman in Studiopolis!

     
    Haha, that's such a great touch! Eggman's having so much fun conquering the airwaves with his own brand of programming! Man, I love that even though this game has no dialogue, there are still such strong showings of the characters' personalities on display here.

    It just dawned on me: Sonic Mania is going to be the first canon, main-line Sonic game not to be developed by Sonic Team or any of its members, instead with an English-region dev team at the reigns. That's so fucking surreal to think about.

    Green Hill Zone Act 1 in the demo shows you that Taxman and co. can recreate the Sonic style.
    Studiopolis Zone Act 1 in the demo shows you that Taxman and co. can reinvent it.
     
    Extremely pleased with how this looks. Gonna need a new laptop to play the thing, but hey. Worth it.

    You know, I think what amazes me the most about this is that Taxman probably could have half-assed the hell out of this and it still would have been worth playing. But they've really been going all out on this. Brand new sprite work with loads of extra frames, a custom engine that replicates all the mechanics people loved the old games for, a whole bunch of brand new tropes for stages that still make nods to Sonic history (I mean fuck, that giant SegaSonic popcorn machine? A level gimmick and an obscure reference in one? Who saw that coming?), and to top it off they're still adding brand new mechanics over the top of it without compromising the feel of the game at all.
    This isn't the mark of some executive that just says "make a game like the old ones" in some pessimistic, soulless grab for nostalgia money. It's the mark of a team that knows exactly what the fuck they're doing, and puts the element of fun front and centre with all that they've got. These are the values I wish I could communicate to Sonic Team, that I wish I could just brand into their fucking skulls so they get the point. Nobody wants you guys to just take buzzwords and cynically make games out of them without understanding their deeper meanings. All anybody wants is for you guys to take your job seriously and passionately for once, for just fucking once, and make a game that stands the test of time for decades.

    I'm so happy the music wasn't the retro-pandering pseudo-Genesis style of Sonic 4!  Really awesome!  I'm so excited!

    Hopefully I can piece my thoughts on this.
    I have to say that as soon as I say "In association with Christian Whitehead" I was immediately enthused, and, well, I'm quite happy to say that I'm very much looking forward to this.  It's like... everything I've been wanting for the longest time.  Well, not everything.  But one thing.  This looks like an authentic Genesis game with upscaled graphics and maybe sound.  The game is developed by people I trust.  It just looks all around fantastic.
    Where was this in 2010 when we really needed it?!?!?
