    I would love to see something like that. it seems more like Robotnik the he would even try to kill Sonic in a special stage.

    Thing is, we don't know if those were put in there by Robotnik, or if they're just part of the Special Stages' security system. =P

    Guys, guys, this is sketchup. "Subdivisions" isn't even in its vocab. I don't think...

    But none the less I'll work on a better one, mind you it will still use the real-time reflections atm.

    The Special Stages seem to take place in like an alternate universe.
    I'm not sure of the story, but I don't think Robotnik had the chaos emeralds. So for him to set up traps in this alternate universe to protect the chaos emeralds that he himself was after doesn't make much sense. But then again neither do floating platforms and antigravity rings. So its really a design decision.
    I think a Robotnik logo could look very awesome as long as it doesn't stand out on the mine and it semi-subtle. Possibly have it engraved.

    :objection: There's a clear contradiction in that statement. =P


    I think we should stick to adding the "awesomeness" in a way that doesn't make it just feel like something else, like making them spin in 3D, making them blink when Sonic is nearby, stuff like that.


    Or we could just add a holographic stripper in each bomb. Because that would be awesome.
     
  7. Wondered if you guys might be interested in this?

    The edges are smooth, all right, but something seems a little... off.

    It's the lighting on the black surface clashing with the light on the red section in the middle. It would only look like that if there was a light source right up next to the bomb.

    If you look at other pictures with multiple reflective objects. You can see that they all have the same light shine.

    But it does depend on whether you have one or multiple light sources. That's why at night you can see two shadows of yourself when walking under street lights.



    If anything I can see clashes of artwork if there isn't a discussion on where the light source is coming from.

    Guys, before you continue with the bombs, please realize that the triangles should be vertically symmetrical, instead of that weird shape you keep using.

    Actually CN, isn't that at the lowest LOD only?

    No, I think whoever made that one started a trend of using the wrong one as an example. That is the second closest one.

    And this is what they look like in-game, with the correct aspect ratio. With and without NTSC filter.

    I've always saw the bombs as some kind of scary eye flying towards me. Is there any concept art of the bombs?

    By Torm, no! This is terrible! I... I had no idea Member
    Mock-up. Definitely make the bomb in 3D though.

  17. Is this any better? Adjusted the design to fit the proper sprite. This render is from an actual 3D model created in Blender. I can play with the lighting, just let me know what needs to be done :)

    The squashed arrows look ridiculous, and I don't like the addition of the logo.
     
  19. How about now?

    Just had a thought. What are you guys going to do about the final Emerald collection where the sky cycles through the colours? I completely forgot it did that until I did it on my friends 360 for the achievement...
