    It is a very good picture but it is not good as a HD remake of a (Neo) Green Hill Zone.

    And, what you guys think about the bush?

    Master Emerald - can you experiment with "unlocking" the squares of the bush so that they're more like diamond leaves that escape the grid;

    At the moment - the bush is pretty square-ish/mild when it comes to the visual eye candy

    I don't know if that would be good since the original had squares. I I'll work on the bush a bit more

    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    You know, one possibility is that you could unlock the beta title screen by beating the game 100 percent. Just an idea.

    An idea for the extra edition after the main one is released.

    Sonic 2 HD: Mockup... person... thingie.
    Before I had started working on full scale mockups, I had been attempting for about a month to come up with a look for the Mystic Cave Zone. I'm pretty sure that I haven't posted any of my MCZ work out in the open where most of you were able to see it, so I would go ahead and post some:
    [​IMG]
    This is a quick throw together of some of the basic concept art I was working on.

    *Example of the original style*
    I have more stuff in the vault if you guys want me to post it.
    Also, I'm not sure if I should still be working on full scale mockups. I started on an Oil Ocean mockup, but it kind of seemed like the full scale mockups weren't really contributing much to the design process, so it fell by the wayside. I'm wondering if I should pick that back up, or work more on concepts for individual tiles?

    I like the clearer ones, but they look like they have been done by a computer apart from the top right which looks good. It does however look too plastic and not organic enough. You could try to add a bit more roughness as I take it these things are plants (?) or some sort of green rock, or even plants growing over rock, but anyway in my opinion they need to look more old like and worn out, since it is a cave, rather than a smooth or blurry. But good work, some of the later zones look really beautiful and I can't wait to get to them.

    Continue posting bigger Level Zone Mockups.

    We need contexted Mockups to know which is the best visual option to an HD complete environment.
    Also, consider that many of your mockups, especially Metropolis Zone, are really GREAT by all means and purposes! :(

    About this MCZ I don't think those are plants at all, to me they are just Rocks tips.
    Inside a cave, there's no much light, it's normal to see only some tip of rocky structures which are somewhat closer to light sources.
    (it may be interesting to empathize these almost-dark rocks sections to give a nicer ambient )

    All right guys, we need some help with the EHZ bush in time for the tech demo. One week to go. Here is a collection of everything posted for it so far. Any artistic inspiration would be greatly appreciated!

    Sonic 2 HD, various 3D work
    Art contributions and mockups have dwindled down to practically nothing in the past few weeks - perhaps, ironically, in anticipation of the tech demo.

    To my knowledge there still hasn't been a decided art direction for where the busy design should be taken. The original is extremely rough, so this is a piece where artistic license has a chance to really shine. If time runs out and something has to be used as a placeholder, ICEKnight's is probably the best of the bunch thus far. Maybe if he or someone else was able to take that and put a nearly transparent color behind its top-most layer that would get past the eye-sore checkerboard we've been trying to deal with in one form or another.

    The only thing I can think the developers were trying to achieve was semi-transparency using an opaque/transparent/opaque/transparent pattern. The best solution I can come to is the following:

    [​IMG]

    Though I really really hopes someone can create something better looking.

    Perhaps this is one of those very rare times when we should completely scrap the original idea and try to improvise something they would have done if they had the technology.

    Edit: Or we could try this:

    [​IMG]

    Please excuse the mess that is my obvious attempt at rushing art, I'm just trying to illustrate the idea of using actual leaf shapes within the bush, and the spaces between themas the transparent areas. Although this particular image has drifted way off course from the original, but I'm just hoping to get some ideas going amongst the community.
