    These stood out for me, particularly that Sonic 2 behind shot.
    A lot of the screens seem to be from Beta Versions (Side Piston Spikes) The Sonic 2 Logo Card is from the Beta also.
    But doesn't look like there is anything we haven't seen before.

    Might Scan the whole lot at some point, if anyone has interest...<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    I'd love to have that Sonic 2 behind shot in a bigger version :), please?

    I have a framed poster with this image. I don't know where I got it since it as loose in stack of gaming magazines orginally before I framed it. I also took a picture of the other side of the poster while I had it out of the frame.

    I swear I had seen this before, so I opened up my PAL Master System Sonic 1 and there it is! It's mirrored and used as a poster in the PAL Master System Sonic 1 (minus the text at the bottom), I have it in front of me but I can't scan it. It's quite big, and thick when folded into the box! On the back is just advertising the Mega Drive and its games.

    The small images of Sonic, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, and Eggman where they miss spelled Amy's name they were Japanese Arcade prizes and they are Clocks. The large and small boxes with pictures of Sonic and Tails on them are Japanese Sonic Cookie boxes and Sweets boxes. The art on them I really liked and thought was cute and its something we've never seen anywhere before and the art style is like Sonic Screen Saver which is one of my favorites.

    Japanese back pack and American lunch box, ugly Knuckles is a Sonic 3 magazine scan and the futuristic city is a Sonic CD article showing Quartz Quadrant Special Stage. The images of Sonic that say SegaSonic The Hedgehog on them were Japanese Calling Cards and the image of Sonic sitting on the beach drinking a soda with Tails flying in the background is a Japanese Post Card. The SegaSonic image of Sonic running with Tails following and Knuckles flying and Eggman in the far left background that is also a Japanese Post Card. All from the early and late 90's era.

    In my first set of pictures I posted the group image showing everyone's height differences was from Sonic's Gameworld and the Mega World images were from a Japanese 90's Magazine. The image of Sonic in colored pencil art style in the emblem is a Japanese Happy New Years Card and the small Sega Megadrive image of Sonic was also a Japanese Magazine. The Japanese version of the Sonic and Tails Sonic 2 pose was from both Mega World Magazines and also was the cover for a short Japanese Sonic Comic, it was a small promotional chapter of the Sonic Comic that has Nicky his split personality in it and earlier version of Amy where she was brown and sported a upward pony tail like hair style.

    The Amy and Sonic 3 posters came with the Sticker Collection the small images on the posters can be removed and are stickers. Sonic on the cellphone is seen in black and white on the end of every Genesis Japanese Manual. Super Sonic is both an American and Japanese Pencil Case, Stationary Notebook and also Stickers. Small image of Amy is from Gameworld as well and Sonic's laughing with blinked pupils is from Gameworld as well I believe. Sonic emblem is from the Sonic 1 Game Gear and the image of Sonic and Tails on the Sega building are from Sonic SS Sound Novel Town. The image of Sonic running with the red background is from a Japanese Sonic 2 Magazine Advertisement.

    For 1992, that's a wonderfully sculpted Sonic figure on that book cover.

    I also specifically had this book! My uncle gave it to me years ago, but I can't find it for the life of me. Thanks for the memories. =)

    That's actually British, I had one when I was a kid ;)

    If you're looking for Sonic art, there's loads of it here: <a href="http://sonicresearch.org/art/index2.html" target="_blank">http://sonicresearch.org/art/index2.html</a> That's where most of my collection is from. There's a lot of common artwork on there but also some more unusual stuff (a few pieces of art that have been posted in this topic already are on that site, for example).

    Oh my mistake lol XD Sonic is drawn kind of like Oshima's style which is why I thought it was Japanese. Yeah I practically live on that site, I have all the art on there. I'm crazy about Sonic artwork especially the Classic Era.

    It's small and hard to see, I'm in the process of hunting a larger image of this down. It's a Mega World Issue with Sonic and Tails drawn and doing a stance we've never seen anywhere before, its a nice picture its a shame I can't find it larger in size.

    I found out the origin of this picture, it was a 1993 Japanese Post Card. How I wish more than anything to find it in a larger non pixelated size.

    While it's not the exact image, I remember somebody recreated a higher resolution version of this image, as I had it for my desktop background not long ago:

    I am sure most have seen this image before.
    [​IMG]

    and perhaps what appears to be an in game screenshot using similar art.
    [​IMG]


    I am working on recreating the Sonic sprite, making it more accurate to the original drawing and all. Using Sonic 1's colors and such.

    What the FUCK is with that blue arms bullshit
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    It was a common error for Sega World Sydney. Mascot costumes, merchandise, and most of the park's Sonic artwork had blue-armed Sonic. You'd think Sega would know what color their own mascot's arms are.

    I know there was an image of a thermos and lunch box posted earlier, but I took some pics of the one I got (sadly, Lunch Box died ages ago, as did the cup for the thermos. Didn't look too much at the art on that thermos, but mine is/was Blue instead of Red.

    We have 2 of this as a poster, I really love that poster. And If I remember well, the Sonic 1 promo comic had the same picture as a cover.
     
  20. I remember seeing that Sonic and Amy image in a thread here somewhere not too long ago.

    I like this thread. All of this awesome old artwork is great! (except blue arms Sonic and that mutant Knuckles)

    Also, excluding THIS...
