I am sure most have seen this image before.


and perhaps what appears to be an in game screenshot using similar art.



I am working on recreating the Sonic sprite, making it more accurate to the original drawing and all. Using Sonic 1's colors and such.

What the FUCK is with that blue arms bullshit


It was a common error for Sega World Sydney. Mascot costumes, merchandise, and most of the park's Sonic artwork had blue-armed Sonic. You'd think Sega would know what color their own mascot's arms are.

I know there was an image of a thermos and lunch box posted earlier, but I took some pics of the one I got (sadly, Lunch Box died ages ago, as did the cup for the thermos. Didn't look too much at the art on that thermos, but mine is/was Blue instead of Red.

Is there a higher quality/vector version of this art?

This thread is pretty fantastic, loving all of the great finds here. Some of these I haven't seen in years.

I swear I had seen this before, so I opened up my PAL Master System Sonic 1 and there it is! It's mirrored and used as a poster in the PAL Master System Sonic 1 (minus the text at the bottom), I have it in front of me but I can't scan it. It's quite big, and thick when folded into the box! On the back is just advertising the Mega Drive and its games.


We have 2 of this as a poster, I really love that poster. And If I remember well, the Sonic 1 promo comic had the same picture as a cover.

I remember seeing that Sonic and Amy image in a thread here somewhere not too long ago.

I like this thread. All of this awesome old artwork is great! (except blue arms Sonic and that mutant Knuckles)

Also, excluding THIS...

And I can think of a situation where he was given flesh coloured legs too: An animated UK Frosties ad from 1994.

I remember artwork on an easter egg with AoStH Robotnik tiptoeing along a brick wall, guess that's pretty rare.

Oh hey, they're promoting the Williams team again.

Sega must have really whored out that sponsorship in 1993 and early 1994.

Sonic Promotional Art

This one is a box to a puzzle I have. Posted a bunch of photos here, though mine doesn't have the box unfortunately.

Japanese Back Pack

That's actually British, I had one when I was a kid wink.png

If you're looking for Sonic art, there's loads of it here: http://sonicresearch.org/art/index2.html That's where most of my collection is from. There's a lot of common artwork on there but also some more unusual stuff (a few pieces of art that have been posted in this topic already are on that site, for example).


I still have mine, its here beside me now. Used it as my schoolbag back in primary school for years so its a little worse for wear, but still usable.
