See you next game by natsu-no-hi See you next game by natsu-no-hi
Splash Hill Zone ★

I actually hesitated to finish this piece after the Sonic 4 leaks. =< I kind of wish I had chosen a zone from a Genesis game for the background instead, but I decided to keep it, it's too pretty to scrap. I'm very pleased with my fluffy white clouds!

Getting Sonic CD anime style just right is more difficult than it looks and it's still probably full of mistakes. Anyway this is by far my favorite version of Sonic, he's just so cute and cool and full of life! If only he looked like this in Sonic 4~

SAI + Painter + Photoshop CS2

EDIT - It completely slipped my mind that I wanted to apply a screentone texture on this, that's what the middle of the night will do to me. D; I fixed it~

Haha.

I agree, Sonic CD Sonic was so adorable! :aww: I think you captured him very well, the coloring is perfect and the background looks really great. I also like how you gave Sonic's eyes a brown tint.

I love your take on his Sonic's "CD" appearance. Cute and a badass at the same time xD
Everything here looks beautiful. The blue borders at the top and bottom are a real nice addition. Very well done :clap:

As for Sonic 4... I've seen a lot of the leaked footage. Not too thrilled with what I've seen : (
But regardless, Splash Hill Zone does look nice!

I used to watch the opening/closing animations to Sonic CD over and over because I was just so enamored by its style. It is surely my favorite of Sonic Team's style for Sonic.

You've done a great job recreating the way they designed him. The background looks fine. Definitely a different style than the foreground, but they are both vibrant and fun to look at. Well done. :love:

Thank you! ^^ I painted this background using digital watercolor in Corel Painter, it's a pretty good program for making things look traditional. I didn't do a sketch underneath for this piece though, I just painted it as it is.
