Zone Rangers is the only one I had. I went through the book several times when I was quite young and seeing the pictures has brought it all back to me. Might even have to dig out the book again.

Hey, it looks like there was some Vector (as in, the crocodile) art along with all the other official Japanese assets that the artist was given for reference... Which wouldn't be so odd had this book not been released in 1993! =O

Would be awesome if he still had them and could share with us, just sayin'.

Hey So Naoto Ohshima's been posting amazing original sketches from his collection on Twitter.

Unknown artwork. Others (from Sonic Screen saver) were used on Company newsletters, so possibly this one was too.

"Did not work on it, but did draft" of Sonic Spinball cover.

"Hoshino made a great picture of this poor draft. " of this Japanese Sonic CD cover.

Naoto Oshima just added some new concept art to his Twitter.

Posted Image

It looks like really early art from around the Sonic 1 era and shows Sonic's running cycle as well as two cute illustrations of Sonic in an about to run position and him appearing and stopping quickly, looking ahead with his hand over his eyes. I'm really happy that he's sharing all of these concept illustrations. I absolutely love them! :)

That actually appeared in a Sonic card set that was released in Japan. Scans of the cards were on the Japanese Act Select website, but the site seems to have been deleted.

I guess this is Sonic ASCII art? (I thought it was Nights at first). From Sega of Japan's Sega Game Station, circa 1996.

I just got a ton of Fleetway Sonic The Comic books that I didn't have. There's some unique art in here from promotional material.

The surfing one was apparently used for the SEGA Quiksilver Surfmaster Championship.
