    Well... at least we know that it was used in print.

    Hey, another AM3 Sonic.
    One thing that immediate jumps out to me is Sonic's render on the first page.
    I wonder if Uekawa used that one drawing as reference for his concept art?

    Seems like it's a pose that they reference a lot.

    And here's a pencil case that I also scanned.

    Link to scans. Seems that artwork for Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles come from that SegaSonic style guide someone here was looking for.

    Wow, it's that picture.
    Naoto Ohshima commented on its origins.

    Wow. Haven't seen that Sonic X poster since before the series was out.

    Bought a pencil box and scanned the artwork on it. Link to scans.

    I did some color correction on the artwork to bring it more in line with the colors used on Adventure's artwork (because why not?)

    Old Sonic toys are technically rare Sonic art, of a 3d kind. I think people should start trying to archive them by 3d scanning what it's possible to 3d scan. Like, for example, MrTalida's KeshiCorner project or Wesk's 3d scans of gaming hardware.


    This could be us.

    Yes, this is a suggestion with no contribution or offer. Actually, the suggestion is an offer. You get a great idea and I'm giving you it for free. 3d scanning tech and accessories not included.
