I think the kanji that's supposed to be under ?? is 監督 (kantoku).
Hey Rlan loving the Sonic site, looking forward to what else you have!
Retro CDN could use your help too. :v:
One little thing: you have kana わ instead of は. (Particle wa is written with は) Text should read: かわいいヤツには、トゲがある。
EDIT: and that kanji you're missing is 監督 (音楽監督 = music director)
I have all the Topps cards as well which I've scanned but not sorted 100% yet. But in the meantime:
Not the rarest ever, but definitely not available online
All the artwork from Sonic Adventure Gamebook 2: Zone Rangers, now in HD!
Higher res and way more of it at the link.
Zone Rangers is the only one I had. I went through the book several times when I was quite young and seeing the pictures has brought it all back to me. Might even have to dig out the book again.
New art extraction - Troll Associates' Sonic The Hedgehog book:

Thanks for the scans.
Hey, it looks like there was some Vector (as in, the crocodile) art along with all the other official Japanese assets that the artist was given for reference... Which wouldn't be so odd had this book not been released in 1993! =O
Would be awesome if he still had them and could share with us, just sayin'.
Sonic & Knuckles (Megadrive) - more at link!
Hey So Naoto Ohshima's been posting amazing original sketches from his collection on Twitter.
Unknown artwork. Others (from Sonic Screen saver) were used on Company newsletters, so possibly this one was too.
"Did not work on it, but did draft" of Sonic Spinball cover.
"Hoshino made a great picture of this poor draft. " of this Japanese Sonic CD cover.

Naoto Oshima just added some new concept art to his Twitter.
It looks like really early art from around the Sonic 1 era and shows Sonic's running cycle as well as two cute illustrations of Sonic in an about to run position and him appearing and stopping quickly, looking ahead with his hand over his eyes. I'm really happy that he's sharing all of these concept illustrations. I absolutely love them!
That actually appeared in a Sonic card set that was released in Japan. Scans of the cards were on the Japanese Act Select website, but the site seems to have been deleted.
Ah! Act Select person's on twitter, I'lls ee if they still have it.
In the meantime... the draft for the Sonic reveal Dreams Come True poster!
I guess this is Sonic ASCII art? (I thought it was Nights at first). From Sega of Japan's Sega Game Station, circa 1996.
I just got a ton of Fleetway Sonic The Comic books that I didn't have. There's some unique art in here from promotional material.

The surfing one was apparently used for the SEGA Quiksilver Surfmaster Championship.
Anyone seen this artwork before?
Wowie! Not me!
I wish Robotnik was still daffy like he was always portrayed in the classic artwork...
Me neither, and man does that look awesome. So you're looking into getting that calendar? Will you be scanning it?
Yeah I managed to get it and I'll scan it to have a better quality of the drawing.
