    That still looks more like a gold ring than the five hunks of plastic being debated.

    I personally don't like the overly shiny, but this shape looks good. I could go for vectorized versions once we pick the BEST shitty plastic shaded rings.

    To the people talking about playable demos: The programming side is working independently of the art from what I understand. I'm sure we'll see another tech demo when it looks like some of the other related art to EHZ is completed (there's still a bunch of stuff open in the database for those of you who want to jump on it).


    Nobody is saying these are going to end up in the game - even art is an iterative process. You pick the ones that you think look closest to the style of the art even if the closest ones still look like turds. Then you comment on how they can be improved (vectorizing the art is a good idea). Then you'll see 5 more rings, which will be slightly less shitty. It's way better than coming in here, insulting the hard work of the people here, and calling anyone who disagrees with you a "fag".

    As for the creativity thing, I've heard posters saying that step one is the original art and step two is any awesome flare to give it personality. It seems like half of the trolls who come to post complain that the art isn't ENOUGH like the original and the other half whine that the creativity is stripped by being TOO MUCH like the original. Some of these trolls post on both sides of this argument just for fun. You're never going to get universal agreement, so just get it close and have the lead artists make the call. That's how it's done in industry, and that's how it should be done here.

    And get off my lawn! :colbert:

    GOD DAMMIT...Rings, Original pixel fags, Creative pixel fags... more rings... Im going crazy, right now.

    Everybody know what this project was focused to. We try to do Sonic 2 in High Definition, that means... Do not replicate EVERY art pixels...but however we cannot change rings to coins for example...

    Add details, but at the same time, keep the original art style... soooooooooooooooooooooo... I think, that the Rings should be hand-draw in vector style.

    Guys, look at my example, Chaos emeralds...I draw 2 sets of emeralds... one set is MY own version of what they should have been... and the other set, is chaos emeralds like the original ones, with the same glows and all that shit.... why?... because some people like to reproduct all every pixel...but other people like new generation glows, shines and some things like that...

    Lets say, post-processing... I think that for SOME zones we can add some glow like bloom for some objects... lets say, the sky in HTZ... It would look awesome with bloom on the sky. Why?... Who knows, people like effects. We are not in 92 guys, we should add S2HD what people want, and when Im saying people, its not just "Sonic freaks that love all old games like they were sacred" ... Sonic 2 HD should be an awesome experience to every guy out there.

    It's great to come back from such a great vacation and find 17 pages to browse! :D
    Jokes apart, thanks to every single opinion expressed.

    I'll read and value all of them before doing a final decision on which one gets "Approved" then moved onto db (and if it'll require major additional fixes).
    Everyone wanting to try remastering it in Vector Art (which is always a plus), be prepared to take on the attempt immediately after a shape gets in "Officially Approved".

    Laters ^^

  5. Can we see what the two different shapes look like in a normal resolution like you would see it in game?

    Nothing that concerns this place in the least.
    Seventeen pages? I only see six.

    Six only in this topic. You forgot the rest of the Sonic 2 HD Subforum =P.

    First of all thanks to both TYR and Gambit.

    The work and efforts you've pulled trough do earn you respect and speaks for your skills, which S2HD Staff takes into consideration for the present and future contributions you'll produce for the game.

    Seeing all the comments, comparing the Artworks, the S1 frames, our and your preferences, it is obvious that there is alot of room for improvement on the art itself and If there would be a way to please most of the users, I'd suggest a further test on shape version in between S1 Special Stage rings and #3.

    However at the moment we've reached the wanted HD base quality, therefore Ring #3 is the first one that will make its step on S2HD Database.
    Tyr in now invited to privately provide me or CK, the Source file of #3, as it gets "Officially Accepted" to be uploaded on the Db, not as "Final" but as "Approved Art". You and Gambit are free to continue refine you versions to beat them again in quality, but do keep in mind my suggestion above and check the poll results as your own reference to improve.

    Thanks again! ^^
