Sonic On Springs by Air-City Sonic On Springs by Air-City
Alright, what way to start off the holidays than with my favorite blue blur! It's something about this time that puts me in the mood for Sonic. Kinda takes me back to when I played Sonic 3K, 3D Blast, and Sonic R when i was little! :D

Anywho, here's Sonic in one of my favorite zones of all time, Spring Yard Zone! I had a great time working on this, but man that background was tricky trying to bring a 2D level layout into kind of a 3D plain! :shakefist:

All in all I'm pretty happy with it! If anyone wants, you can listen to some music I found that helped me work on this!

Very cool. Looks like the Sonic 3 Sprite, but with green eyes! Nice.

I wish that in Generations Classic Sonic had green eyes.  That would make it much more consistent.

wow man I very bad at colour, when I see this art it brings back memories.
Well very nice work, I'm just amazed.
I also listen to songs like these when I draw Sonic
There is a good medley of Sonic 2 by London Phillarmonic Orchestra and also the ending credits for Sonic 1 orchestra on an album called "video games live : level 2

you should look for them, I'm sure you'll like ;)

Well thanks for your art it's beautiful.

I've always loved Spring Yard Zone since I was little, and this picture reminded me of the fun and happy times I spent in that game. This picture is wonderfully done on all accounts. Great job! :dummy:

I love your take on Spring Yard Zone. It has this sort of "otherworldly city" vibe that runs throughout a lot of my favorite Sonic stages.

Ah, I got into Sonic with Sonic 2, back when the Sega Genesis came with a free game. As I got older, however, I did take time out to view the other games (and play a few of them).

This came out in a great way, I must say! The look, the feel, the expression and pose...definitely speaks to the nostalgic side.

Thanks for the great share; keep up the goodness.

Yeah it's a bit vague, but if memory serves right, it was a combination of Sonic 1 and 2 that pulled me in. And Sonic 3&K just sealed the deal.

And thanks Boss, I'll keep doing my best! :thanks:

Totally understand dude. I definitely love Star Light Zone! Especially for its music, cause it's just a BEAUTIFUL piece. It's such a great reward for any player who can survive Act 3 of Labyrinth Zone. ;P
