Relive the classic that started it all, completely reimagined in full HD!


Heh. Originally, I was going to submit this a couple days after the demo for Sonic 2 HD was released and the hilarity of the whole "virus" and coding fiasco, not to mention the system requirements. I was almost done, but then I realized that it would be more appropriate to wait until today! 8D Sonic's 21st birthday!


I started this on a whim when I read a review about S2HD saying "The bulk of the project must be the artwork", which is why it took over 4 years to make one zone? :iconchallengeacceptedplz: They need a better art director, not more artists. Even I understand the style they're going for.



And, no, sorry. Although it's something all the fans want, this is not playable. I can't code worth crap. I used to, once, but that was too long ago.



I took a screenshot of the game, blew it up 4 times it's original size, extended the overflow, and added stuff over it. :)

Happy Birthday, Sonic! ^_^

EDIT: 7-19-12 This project may actually become a reality and I'm contributing some of my art skill toward it: [link] Granted, I'm not doing the artwork for Green Hill Zone, but it is in the much more capable hands of a vector artist who goes by Corral on the forums.

Would you mind if I used this image to be printed on my cousin's birthday cake? I'm going to have to crop it to fit a round cake but I just wanted to ask before I went and did it. I'll send you the picture of the completed cake as well and will credit if I post it anywhere.

Beautiful. Just beautiful.
The only things that look a little odd are the life icon and Sonic´s eyes (on both the goal sign and his running sprite)...
Anyway, great job!

This is actually unrelated to the one we are doing. :) An artist who calls himself Corral Summer is doing the art for both Green Hill Zone and Sonic the hedgehog himself and he is doing a much better job. :) I'm doing the 8-bit stages.

But thank you! ^_^
