    Love the look of Sonic but the glove needs correcting. Where the index and middle finger join the palm of the hand it doesn't look right like the fingers are connected to the back of his hand.

    True...but that doesn't discount the fact a release date was once said. >_>

    I agree. I just wish a release date was never said since it got my hopes up for it to be coming out much sooner than reality. <_<

    It's just the dishonesty that bothers me. We were told that the countdown early this year was originally meant to lead up to the alpha release, but apparently plans were changed midway through. Was it reeeally that close to being ready? Never believed that for a second. But whatever... makes no difference now. Love the signpost apart from what has already been pointed out about the fingers. The highlight on the upper half of the rings looks a bit off to me. Like it's something separate to the ring itself. As it turns around it looks like it's floating on top or something.

    Wow, I haven't been here in a long while (after submiiting some really shitty Acquatic Ruin theme remake :S), and it seems like you guys really put it together so far. Very nice! Hope we'll see a fully running build soon :)

    Oh dear. Your professionalism has been stricken slightly because of the fact that the normal "front facing" Sonic signpost frame is missing from the animation demonstration. I feel sick at you.

    Anyway, you did make one mistake where you said you doubled the frame count of the ring. You lied. You quadrupled it.

    Now, in all seriousness, these animations are awesome, and it's a shame we only get to see the signpost animate really fast at the end of the level. Luckily for us we get to see the ring animation everywhere, you guys did a great job at making it look like metal!

    One thing I don't understand is how there can be all these animations with a huge number of frames and yet you dumped the superior monitor animations for a simpler one with the generic static flicker. This isn't a moan (as such), more asking for a technical reason <strike>if any</strike> why this was taken out. I don't see how the two cases are different and why the original monitor animation can't be used.

    Yeah the hand's definitely off. The fingers curve round in an unnatural way and the arm looks awkward, but great stuff otherwise.

    While I understand where you are coming from, we have yet to see a near final version featured in a visual changelog and we have only seen a low res version while Sonic is running in that trailer. It's Best to wait until CK shows it before we all go at it with our fine tooth combs.




    Fun fact:-


    One of the ring animations is positioned wrong and gives the rings a bouncing effect.

    Is it just me or does Eggman's nose look extraordinarily red?

    Thanks for the insight on the ring frame error and the fingers, we'll look into those.

    I guess it's alright. Just, as compared to what the pixel art looked like before, it's kind of jarring!

    Looking pretty awesome. The only gripes I have with Sonic is the really awkward shape of his arm (I think it should be kept mostly behind the 'window', af if it was in a 'V' shape)... and also the fact that he doesn't seem to be making the 'peace sign' anymore.

    The horizon line on the ring moves with the ring itself; instead of behaving like a reflection, it behaves as if it's painted onto the ring.

    Hmm, well spotted. It does look like a texture, rather than a reflection.

    I'm sorry, but with that face on the sign, all I can see is..
    [​IMG]

    Constructive-criticism-wise, the spinning looks really awkward, but most of all that the top of the post doesn't show any signs of movement at all. It looks very odd.

    Would it need to, though? Presumably the top is what's holding it in place, so the sign in the middle spins round underneath it.

    Maybe some sort of reflection/shadow would have helped? Other than that nothing needs to be done.

    Nothing? Are you sure ? ;)

    (hand)

    I suppose it looks slightly odd when you just focus on the top. Hard to say what it needs... but I think a subtle reflection (of light reflecting off the spinning bit?) would make more sense than a shadow. Not that I'm an expert :/.... at all.

    Since this is the only topic on this board that anyone's taking notice of, I thought I'd take my chance to post this;
