    Eggman is holding onto Tails there. Maybe it was early Sonic 2 Special Stage concept art? Or the 8-bit Sonic 2 intro?

    Remember this thing?

    I really think this needs to be vectorized or something.

    Hi guys,
    Writing this here as I remembered the ice level and the floating island scans were posted on these boards, but I couldn't find them anymore!

    Sorry to say, but that is most likely from the planned pool special stage in Sonic 3D Blast.

    http://sonicdatabase.com/S3Dpool/S3Dpool.htm

    Still very interesting, I've never seen that art before.

    Where did the art for the high resolution Sonic 3D Pool title screen originate from, though?

    Was it Peter Morawiec who released it? I really can't remember right now.

    We had a topic a while ago about this, I think Mercury started it off. I'd find it but I don't feel like trudging through the topics. Can't remember what conclusion came up though.

    I'm not sure it was posted already, but here's a scan from Shadow the hedgehog OST. This is a very rare art that I've seen pretty much only in Sonic rivals [as a card].

    Scanned this article from Official UK Sega mag issue 15 of Sega of America's website from back in late 1994/early 1995, possibly their first ever website revision seeing as it has only been online for a few months at the time. Has some neat (but grainy) pixel art of Sonic and Knuckles I can't say I have seen before. The way back machine doesn't go this far back either.

    Looks like they lost the domain some time ago: http://segaoa.com/

    Yeah there was no trace of them owning it on the wayback machine which only went as far back as 1999. They probably ditched the domain as soon as they grabbed the sega.com.

    See that "flying" Sonic near the center of the catalog? I'd love to have an HQ version of that. Also, this:

  16. Pretty sure I've seen it somewhere before. I think there's a very similar frame in the intro for Sonic CD, if I'm not mistaken.

    I've found a page of the Sonic sticker album ( I don't know if it is the actual sticker album or one from the 90's, but it seems the latter) who has some classic art I've never seen before

    Maybe we should look after scanning more of this... does anyone have a complete one?

    All of these links are apparently reported as attack links.

    The first one is the japanese Sonic 2 cover art, but with a different backgound. The second one...I've never seen that before.
