I doubt that. If the signatures on the back are correct, they were made in 1993, two years after Sonic 1 was released. Why show him some beta screens? Also, look at the final boss piston there and the enormous random spiked ball in Marble zone.... Coincidences CAN happen. Also, green Motobug.

Hang on, did we know the author of "ass-face Sonic" was this bloke. I certainly didn't, and it could be pretty significant

EDIT: Maybe I should shut my big mouth and read the topic properly

Here are three original Greg Martin Sonic cover paintings that I thought were pictured here but have since disappeared from the thread. Not sure what happened to the old links above.

These three paintings are originals that Greg sold me before he passed away. These are the originals. Not copies or prints.

Greg would shrinkwrap all his artwork for trade shows where he tried to sell his work. You might notice a Flintstones sticker in the corners.
He would write his asking price on those Flintstones stickers. Luckily (for me) these three never made it that far.
I do sometimes think about the pieces that he did sell at those shows before I met him. Someone out there could have one of his game covers just sitting in a closet with no idea what they really have.
Antiques Roadshow discovery in the making.

On the backs of these paintings he would often attach promotional flyers and postcards that contained images of his published work and his contact information.

Definitely jealous of you having the US Sonic CD box art painting original; that was one of my favorite box arts as a kid. :v:

Great collection though, it's good to see these being preserved somewhere.

Thank you for the kind words.
It is one of my favorites as well.
I just loved the soundtrack on this game. Wonder if anyone else out there would ever play the cd in a radio without playing the game.

Hmm. A Flintstone sticker on officially drawn Sonic artwork, and from the early 90's? What else have we seen so far that's Flintstone-related?

Let's take a look at #moreclues

Better pic of promotional Sonic Megaman piece.

More Sonic board game art work. The rings are on the acetate. The rest of the art is on the board.
The board game art is by Greg Winters not Greg Martin.

Sonic #1 promotional comic cover art by Greg Martin.
This comic predates the Archie Sonic series and considered a rare comic book by comic book collectors.

I remember seeing a lot of this artwork over the years from a variety of sources, although I never put much thought into how the artwork would have been made. Getting to see the originals though really helps me realize just how much work and skill would have been needed to create them.

Thank you for taking these photos and sharing a glimpse into your collection!

Stupid question alert, but like, are these images like the legitimate originals? Like these artists put a paint brush/air brush to this media?

Second question, how did you obtain these, and so many?

Third question, are you willing to sell any of these?

Please make digital copy's, these need to be preserved for history (and a lot of them are great as desktop wallpapers)

These are THE hand made originals created by the artists with which all images derive. Edit... The posts from the last month have all been original artwork. Looking back on this thread some of the images posted are not artwork. Most of the material here is hand drawn. The artists sent me everything they had and sometimes they would have something that was interesting but it was not original artwork. Because this thread was assembled by a mod from many different posts you may have to ask specifically.

Most of the Sonic pieces were purchased directly from Greg Martin before he died. The Sonic board game art came from Greg Winters.

Eventually I may get rid of a few paintings but plan to keep these for now.

These are better pictures of board game art but have been pictured here previously.

That first one of Sonic on a piano is the cover art of that Wacky Worlds game. Cool find!
