Haha, no hurry, just good to have backed up somewhere. I'm doing it for all other artwork for those books :)

Not necessarily ART to restore.. but something that I'd be keen on seeing one day is new scans of Game Player's Sonic X-Treme developer diaries.

This stuff has been online for a long while... which means the scans are basically dirt by todays standards.

Things like the 3D Nack and Metal Sonic stuff would be so nice scanned at 300/600dpi.

It'll turn up at some stage - a lot of Game Players issues were scanned in the last couple of years:

What's less certain are UK Sega mags from the early 90s, and there's lots of juice in those.

So here's a fun one that I'd like to get you guy's help on.

I own the Ladybird Coloring Book poster for Sonic. As far as I can tell this might have been the rarest of the Ladybird ones? I got them all as a kid.

however, as the name implies, it was to be colored in. I colored in some of it.

I've uploaded a very high res version of the poster here:

Anyone out there got the sweet ability to un-color this thing? :P


I have the uncolored original of this but its pretty big. Scanning ideas?

Holy shit. I remember I wrecked mine as a kid with felt-tip pen and tipp-ex! Anyone got a time machine I can slap that young'un and bring a preserved parchment. :v:/>

Good luck un-colouring that Chemical Plant, that's some top-notch colouring to undo.

Something that popped up recently on Tumblr.

Quote

A Tumblr URL is usually:

https://78.media.tum...xx/xxx_1280.jpg

However, tweaking some of the URL will grant you access to the original, full-sized file:

http://data.tumblr.com/xxx/xxx_raw.jpg

All you need to do is replace “78.media” (or whatever number is there plus .media) with “data” and “_1280″ (or whatever number is there) with “_raw”. Now you won't have to settle for downsized images ever again!


Which means that the Sonic The FIghters are that appeared on Sonic Wrecks (http://sonicwrecks.t...we-actually-got) can get the original file sizes. I've added them to Sonicretro.

ie; http://info.sonicret...tf_sonic_02.png

They're huge!

gasp

Thank you for making this forum post, especially considering how long it must have taken! We need more restoration like this, at least in my own opinion.

That's amazingly huge. In fact, seeing so much 'detail' (I know, you could cut your hand open on those clean polys!), I've noticed a rogue bit of 'something' to the left of Sonic's nose, like a white block of rogue polygon just hovering by his head. I wonder what that could be?

I don't think I've ever seen that stance of classic sonic before? Is that official? That hedgehog ecology thing.

Niiiice! I have to wonder though, what is the pink animal between Ricky (squirrel) and the raccoon? Half of it can be seen in higher resolution here on big_smile's site.
