    Ken Balough has (had?) a big poster with that art in his cubicle.

    I've seen that Super Sonic art before. I just wish we had a larger, cleaner version.
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Same here, it was on many various Japanese merchandise back in the 90's. I do think I have a larger image of it but I need to find it because my folders are a bit messy. It was also a Japanese notebook picture, a pencil case and in various sticker books.

    There's some cool old art in this thread. This past week's been great, we all seem to be reliving some of Sonic's history.

    *Pic slightly edited for clean-up reasons.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Stop it you're teasing me... But if you want to, go crazy and vector all of those Amy pics and the Sonic pics. (If you don't want to ignore me)
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    I'll probably end up doing more. I haven't done much art wise in a while and this could help me de-rust a bit.

    Also, I didn't vector shit ;)

    I wanted to do this just recently but have had no means. So I gave up, if you could do that and post HQ then I'd be very thankful. Tanks alot.

    I found those Super Sonic pictures I mentioned earlier, the quality still isn't the best we want it in but its better than all the other images of it I've seen.

    The last image was fixed up and enlarged by someone here on Retro I believe, its still the best we have so far of the image.

    I'm on board for an officially sanctioned Sonic Retro "Classic Art Restoration Project" of sorts. Or even if it isn't an official SR thing I'd love to see one. Excellent work on that adorable Classic Amy (I assume) vector, Sonic Warrior TJ.

    I just used my tablet for it, Jack. The one I posted is only half its original size. If you got up real close, you could probably tell the lines are done by hand.

    Sally always stuck out like a sore thumb next to Sega characters but this one has got to be most noteworthy.
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    You don't want that little group picture, it's not even official! I made it as a signature picture a while back using images I ripped off of a Sega World Sydney brochure scan. Here's the larger pictures of the characters:

    And some other random stuff.

    [​IMG]

    From that Pense Bem Sonic book. It's on the wiki.

    [​IMG]

    Ripped from the Wacky Worlds game boxart, on which Sonic was painting Ecco the dolphin.

    [​IMG]

    From Sonic Channel.

    [​IMG]

    A Blaze concept for Sonic Riders.

    [​IMG]

    From Knuckles' Chaotix.

    [​IMG]

    All of the pictures with this style are from Sonic the Hedgehog's Gameworld.

    [​IMG]

    I'm not totally sure this is official artwork, but if it is, it's from Triple Trouble.

    [​IMG]

    These artworks seem to be European in origin.

    [​IMG]

    I might have a picture of Knuckles in this same pose, but it'll be tiny and very low quality. I'll see if I can find it again.

    Welp, this.
    What's that? You wanted Sonic Adventure art in at least twice as good of quality as before? You wanted flat vectors of all SA art?

    Lol Ammy. First time I see Amy's name is written wrong. I guess there would be too much space left so they added another M. Also what are these anyway?

    My guess would be light switch covers, but that's retarded because lightswitches don't go sideways.

    ...Or do they?
     
  17. I've seen some that do. Ammy is a pretty horrible misspelling though.

    Also, it was used for the Sonic Pocket Adventure title cards, being probably a leftover from when the graphics in that game were still classic-style.

    That particular Sonic pose was used to denote games that were part of "Project Sonic".

    Which I think is probably a fancy term for "this is a Sonic game".

    Then it was used in Sonic Pocket Adventure. So basically, generic Japanese Sonic artwork from the late 90s, and in my opinion, the best sort.
