Hello, everyone. First of all, I would like to thank admins for accepting me. Secondly, there are some things that I want to share and topics to discuss. Let's start with this art from Naoto Ohshima. Now look at Sonic over there: It looks like sprites from Sonic 2 (and later in Sonic 3 prototype) were inspired by that picture. More examples can be found in Sonic Mania. <--- like when he looks up <--- or this, at the start of Chemical Plant That image went through certain changes. We can trace it's evolution: Speaking of evolution. Many levels from Sonic 3 & Knuckles evolved from ideas for Sonic 2. For instance, Mushroom forest, valley, hill: <--- it looks like a sketch for that level <--- and what about those pictures in the upper left corner? Well, it's re-coloured Sonic 2 concept art and a new piece, called "Temple in the sky". Probably it's an early version of Sky Sanctuary: Interestingly, that drawing features Tails, while most of them are with Sonic alone. Sooo, I guess it's quite enough for a first post. See you next game!
