    Yeah pretty much this.

    And it's because Tails was originally orange and not Yellow, his sprites were lazy as hell in Sonic 3, they didn't remodel him like Sonic, they just copypasted his Sonic 2 sprites and used a model for the rotate ones which looked really inconsistent, and Sonic 3's Tails is missing a color, the red color, that made him look more orange than brown. Sonic 3's Tails looked more brown, that's why I say to use Sonic 2's pallet, or give him some red shades so he doesn't suffer from the same problem the new Tails does.

    I'll get Photoshop when I get home but ATM I don't have access to it. Ir'll make more sense as a picture.

    Those sprites look beautiful to me. Like high-res Sonic 3 sprites. Lack of mouth be damned, it's better than him having Shadow-scowl or Sonic 2 HD Cocky Grin. Which I hate.

    Sonic's quills look wrong. His face is too big. Something more like this would be ideal:

    I think it looks great (though Tails does look unfinished). It's a shame it probably won't amount to much.

    That looks fantastic.

    Also glad the Tails sprite is receiving more notice than just by me, I wish it wasn't only Sonic that got the major focus in art direction, it always seems like fangames just slap everyone else together and only focus on Sonic. I hope this guy isn't like that.

    That's amazing. I really like the model that the person creating this game is currently using, but I must say that your version is a big improvement.

    Well, of course Sonic's going to get the most focus, it's a SONIC game - he's the main character, it's more important to get him right first and then the supporting cast later. I do agree Tails needs a little work, but I can totally see why the creator's refining the Sonic model first.

    I really do like the look of this game, I just hope that this guy has a competent programmer working on it; it could really turn out to be something fantastic if so.

    That Robotnik looks pretty damn cool. Death Egg in the background is a nice touch, as well.

    I still think everything is far too shiny/clean. Personally, I prefer actual increased detail to shiny gradients. IMO this is little better than a very advanced upscaling filter (2xSAI or similar). I suppose that if this sort of artwork is what you're into, it's been executed quite well.

    To be fair there is a lot of shininess in Sonic 3, from the sprites to the special stages - hell, even the title screen. I think he's going for a "If Sonic 3 had been made today" look.

    So, upscaling, basically?

    Looks good. Even the so-called US Sonic from a few pages back looks cool despite the source.

    I have to give him credit for toning down Sonic's noodle arm as well.

    I'm a bit disappointed that Robotnik doesn't have a new Eggmobile, but oh well. It hasn't curbed my enthusiasm for the project at all.

    Personally, I think Sonic looks OK, but not great. I'd lose the CGI look.

    Well, yeah. He doesn't have to deal with the clusterfuck that is 20+ people intricately critiquing how an existing game should be represented in HD while his coder works in absolute secrecy, segregated from everybody else.

    He has the benefit of saying "Fuck it, this is my style, this is my game, and if you don't like it, tough shit."
     
  20. Which is really unfortunate. I'd love to see Sonic 2 HD come out, but I'm not holding my breath.
