Those holiday scene images were also used on some very rare Japanese collectible cards. If I recall correctly, there was someone here who had once posted I believe Spanish or Portuguese collectible cards with those same exact illustrations on them. I could have sworn they were posted in this very thread but I cannot seem to find them now when I backtracked. I know there was an even older art thread prior to this one so maybe they were posted in there? Anyways, here's some pictures of those same illustrations found on the rare Japanese collectible cards. That art was used for an old Japanese Sonic jigsaw puzzle. I bet that a lot of these illustrations were also used for the Harmony magazines as well. This is the kind of art that I wish we can find in really good quality. It literally makes me feel sad and also frustrated beyond belief that it's all basically lost art. This is the kind of art that should have been in the Sonic art book. That book was a disappointment. Even though it did provide us with some new concept art it just wasn't enough. Too many pages were wasted on giant blown up sprites of rings and such. There was no Screensaver / Harmony art, no concept art at all for Sonic 3 and Knuckles, no artwork from magazines and not enough concept art. Hell, I'd buy an entire book of just "The Art of Sonic 1" or "The Art of Sonic 2" ect. They wasted too many pages on already well known art, sprites, or other nonsense. Another thing that bothered me too was that the new art they did show would sometimes be split between the spine basically ruining it and making it harder to view. :/ Sorry, I got a little off topic there. That was me lol. XD Thank you so much for sharing that! It really means a lot to me. That's literally the best quality image of that illustration that we have available now. I just really wish that we could have a high res scan though. What I don't understand is why this illustration wasn't included in Sonic the Screensaver as well as a couple of other "lost" Japanese puzzle artworks and calendar artworks. I wish they were all included. Who knows how many other lost Screensaver style artwork is out there just waiting for us to find. Oh, wow. Really? Do you know if she'd be willing to scan or take some photos of them? If so that would be greatly appreciated. One of the rarest and most sought after "lost" art for me is this. This cropped version came from a French magazine I believe but it is unfortunately very badly sun faded. I wish more than anything that we can find this magazine in better quality and get a higher quality scan of it someday. This illustration was also used as a Japanese postcard and was also featured in Beep! Megadrive and Megadrive FAN as background art for articles discussing Sonic CD. I've also seen it as a small thumbnail image in a Spanish magazine and as background art for a Japanese pamphlet discussing Sonic CD. This is my holy grail of "lost" artwork though because it's such a beautiful and well detailed illustration and I just absolutely love it. It's such a shame and it saddens me that it's basically lost art. I was really hoping to see this illustration in the Sonic art book. Here's the image as seen in some Japanese magazines and pamphlets. And here it is in a Spanish magazine. Here's some pictures of Japanese Sonic calendars that have the Screensaver art style. The one highlighted in red is lost art that wasn't included in Sonic the Screensaver. Here's some pictures of Japanese Sonic puzzles. Believe it or not but this picture of Sonic standing at the Jukebox is slightly different than the one featured in Sonic the Screensaver. He's posed slightly differently and the Jukebox looks completely different. Here's an image from a Sonic plush paper tag. It's really cute and very 90s looking and it's also in the Screensaver art style. Here's another image of the Japanese Sonic Ski Lodge magazines.
