    Good point. I included the link to Ohshima’s initial tweet but was just including screencaps of his replies. I edited those posts to now include links to his replies

    He could have had a band...

    Members of 'Sonic The Hedgehog Band' appeared in different magazines... Ohshima supervised those pictures, but he doesn't know who illustrated them.
    This is a fan art (Adventure-like Sonic Band):

    And this is my drawing with Sonic and various SEGA characters:

    That "Hand" guy was also spotted in Sparkling Zone! f39aeef1-289e-4c20-8b8a-e425cb1614b0.jpg

    Can we separate the "interesting tweets from Naoto Ohshima" from the fan art?

    I almost missed it.

    I’m seeing a generic large rabbit with no design similarities to the original at all. Am I missing something?

    People actually read these? Member
    Am I going crazy or did the picture just disappear?

    Excuse me, I have just edited the post because it made no sense originally.

    This topic includes only 2 examples of fan art. I'm not going to post any fan art further on. Maybe it's really better to wait when N. Ohshima shares something new... Art, information, etc. For example, I asked him about original level names from Sonic CD. Well, he doesn't remember, but he'll look it up...

    great! I only have scribbles left!
    Was the original draft titled Twins Special (provisional)

    Auto translate: There are 22 pages in all. The title is " ☆ Twins Special ☆ Extermination of demons, wake up when you get scared!!" (provisional title). This is a copy that Mr. Oshima gave me when I joined the company in September 1990, asking me to use it as a reference for writing a draft. At that time, Sonic 1 was already under development. Shall we send it? (smile)

    Sonic and Amy down on the left side of this photo - don't remember seeing this picture anywhere else.
    This art also looks new:

    I'm talking about "Sonic on the Moon" and "Sonic in Santa Claus hat".

    More photos from Sonic's 20th Anniversary event in Tokyo Joypolis:

    Could you link the original sources for these photos? That's the kind of information we need on the wiki.

    Also, please use the edit button to add more to an existing post instead of double and triple posting in the thread.

    This thread's a real treat, thanks for sharing MasterDreamcaster. I love Ohshima's character designs for 'Twin Stars'; they remind me of Scott Pilgrim.

    I saved those pictures back in 2017. Could not find the original source (I searched recently through Google Lens).
    I wanted to separate first two photos from the rest: because the source for them is different - they are from Sonic's 25th Anniversary Event at Tokyo Joypolis: https://hobby.dengeki.com/news/269967/
    My apologies – I still learn about using this forum – up to 10 pictures can be uploaded at once, and some of them can't be uploaded at all (it says they're "too big"). I'm thinking of uploading them somewhere else (Tumblr, for example) and then embed via link, so there won't be any further incovenience for you.

    I'd advise to use Imgur. Far more practical, it doesn't resize images like Tumblr, and it lets you hotlink pics on forums.
