    To be honest I don't care for most of the art posted for this zone. Even the BG, as awesome as it is, looks like something you would see in Fairy Land Adventures and not so much in a Sonic game. Most of the art just clashes and doesn't look too great together.

    If I may add... I still think the background I started would look better

    I liked that background too. The tents, coasters, and balloons just look nice. Also, I actually prefer the original purple/blue palette for the foreground.

    Just for the note, "You ass" was just for the lulz.
    The fact is that my bg is perfect, except for those disgraceful clouds. Anyone who can sprite a cloud in a realistic way please do it. Because I really can't.

    Hey Kids, It's Audience Participation Time!

    Alright, I've been messing around with the tracks, and I need a few opinions. On an impulse, I've attempted to draw the tracks from a slight angle to add some depth. It arguably looks better in some respects, but could clash with the flatness of the rest of the level.

    (If anyone's curious about the supports, they've been nixed for now because I'm going to give the huge white column supports from the concept recently posted by Matwek a whirl)

    So then, Aye or Nay?

    The soil knows all.
    To be honest the white foregrounds remind me a bit too much of Carnival Night (and to a certain extent, Speed Slider in Chaotix), or rather, it reminds me of how those two levels have better graphics =P.

    You were better off with the purple/red colour scheme. That was more pleasing on the eye too.

    I also like raves background, but its not fitting in sonic game.


    I think, that we must copy that pic, what Matwek posted, But include star blocks.
    (Not because I did them, but they fit in zone.) We just have to add some detail in them.

  15. I still don't see why you guys have your thinking locked into place about everything just being checkers or diamonds.

    I posted this way back on page 11 and the Jayextee posted it again a few posts later:

    Look at that! That freaking looks like a chunk of a Sonic level ripped out of the ground and put on wheels. Look at how ornate it is! Look at those arbitrary flowery circles, and gilded borders. And think back to Casino Night—It had SONIC and TAILS in flashing lights. Can't you just see that on this cart instead of "
    Asia"?

    I feel bad offering "bullshit opinions" without contributing anything tangible, but it's really distressing to see so many working with such limited imagination. I will try to produce some actual tiles or something too (as horrible as they might be).

    I think it's just a matter of the amount of skill someone will have to put into that to make it look like the style you're referring to, but I may be wrong.
