I'm excited for the Art book, but I very much dislike the neon green which appears to be throughout the book. It's hard on the eyes, has nothing to do with Sonic, and reminds me of that green-screen background which is replaced with an image in video post-production.

Do you mean like how it is on the "Sonic Jam" page, or am I missing something else?
Because if you're referring to that - then yeah, it's pretty blinding. And it actually looks gross with that shade of pink, in my opinion (I don't think it'd actually be so bad if it was paired with a colour that wasn't also really vivid) x_x It's hardly the nicest colour combination I've ever seen, it has to be said. Hopefully it's just a one-off and the rest of the pages are a little easier on the eyes.

Cook and Becker showed a WIP today on their instagram today.
Link to pic since it doesn't want to show up

I'd prefer a 2-Sonic variant, but whatever...
It's too bad the source image is such bad quality.

I preordered the Collector's Edition way back when preorders first started. I really can't wait to get this art book. This is like a dream come true to me because I love concept art. I always wanted Sega to make an art book like this. For years I always wanted this. I'm so happy that it's finally happening. I hope that we get a really good amount of concept art and also a lot of art that we haven't already seen before. That WIP photo on Instagram looks great! I can't wait to see those Shadow illustrations in better quality. Also, I think the Uekawa illustration looks really nice whether it has the two Sonic's in it or the three. It doesn't really matter to me.

^ They posted some teaser images on Twitter. The Metal Sonic concept art is amazing! I am not sure how I feel about the Sonic CD pull out. It is very pretty, but I'd much rather the book saved space for things we hadn't seen before. Although it looks like the book will have plenty of new stuff, so it should be amazing. Excited for the release.

Did they really need to fill three pages with an emulator screenshot.

Wow, this book isn't going to be very good, is it? The white space on the Metal Sonic concept pages is killing me.
At least the level art is being represented in some form. Only reason I'm not cancelling my preorder is that there's still some use in having this book sitting in my cubicle so I have some visual reference to justify my obsession to coworkers that have never played a Sega game. There needs to be a spread like this for all of the 2D games.
