Sonic Concept Art

Recommended Posts

I like how a couple of those look like much better alternatives to cover art than what we got! Surely interested to see us get scanned copies of those and possibly some mockups of alternate game covers designed like them.

This.

 

Fanbase, don't disappoint us now!

 

(The fanbase rarely does on delivering some awesome fanwork though)

Nice to see this topic revived.

 

Some of these pictures I don't recall seeing anywhere else (apart from the ones next to the text, the only one I recognsie is the one with Tails lifting Sonic), the information too, could it be the personality descriptions shown here?

Woah, okay these are so awesome I'm gonna die. Where did you see this and how can we try to obtain them?

The Image of Sonic and Chip with the dreamcast came from here.

I found the photograph here, they only seem to be discussing classic Sonic as he appeared in Sonic Generations as opposed to the Japanese 'classic' Sonic games, though.

That Sonic and Tails with the telescope reminds me of Sonic the Screensaver. Even Sonic under the palmtree and with a surfboard seem reminiscent of that. Possibly the art preluding that?

It looks incredibly similar to this piece:

Could it be the lineart for it?

I'm sure that the telescope one was used on a Japanese arcade machine. There's a photo of said machine in Gems Collection's museum. The art that shows Tails carrying Sonic whilst flying was used on a Japanese cookie box/tin

Whilst the one that shows Sonic lying down on a tiny island with a palm tree was used on a towel

I have similar images, I have the Sonic 3 players Guide and it has full maps in there for every level :) Edited by Jolt_TH

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.

Ha, I make a post about the Hamadashi blog in Retro's Unleashed thread, two days later there's a post up on TSSZ news kinking all the exact pages I linked and just for good measure they completely misunderstood what the picture of Windmill Island covered in the eggman texture actually was.
