A special announcement...

S2HD fans, today is a special day! After evolving the character art style through three major revisions, with countless hours spent tweaking vector points, shading, and animation boils, I am proud to announce Sonic's entire frameset for S2HD is complete! None of this would have been possible without Ricky Earl's gorgeous animation drafts and patience in creating the revisions for our blue hero.

I would like to give special thanks to Tom Fry and Jared Kasl, as their efforts in 2010 laid the foundation for the final shading techniques that make S2HD look so amazing today. Finally, a huge thank you to all of you for your support and comments -- I love reading them and promise to keep character art as sharp and polished as I can! 


-Vincent S2HD Team Leader

    2. DON'T make this official, SEGA getting their hands on this will set this games fate in the rubbish pile. It is much better off with people that know what they're doing.

    3. It's sad to say, but Austen is right. Sega would just mess it up somehow, i know it.

  9. Sonic seems to have two right hands in this animation. http://hpics.li/fca40ff

    1. He has both of his hands facing palm away from him. That means he does not have 2 right hands there, its just perspective looking that way.

  10. I was born in 1987 and I am a huge fan of the old sonic and Mario games. i have only just seen this work that you are doing. i downloaded the demo and had a go. thought it was brilliant. i will definitely be getting this when it is complete. the hd colors and smooth looking animation make the game come to life. do you plan on making the whole 3 games? you should because your good at it.
