models mania

I saw this while browsing twitter and it was too awesome NOT to share. Made by @Tomothy_S on twitter, link here:

Can this just be the official 3D Sonic model from here on out? Because it’s a perfect interpretation of the CD design in 3D. Also, if the modeller wants me to take this down, simply ask.


base on this I couldn’t resist but to draw them (Jhin still took me forever to draw :’D) 

Thanks for all the follows +200 already!!!  Love you guys, I’m gonna try harder to be more active around here.

I wish they used 3D models for Sonic Mania. They're kinda restricting the graphics potential with 2D sprites.

Not really, because creating fluid and vibrant sprites takes just as much time and effort as it does for 3D models.

I feel a lot of people don’t give enough credit to the spritework business in general, usually by viewing sprites as less impressive than 3D models due to how supposedly primitive they are by comparison. Even though, as shown by Mania itself, as well as the original Genesis trilogy and Sonic CD, spritework when done right can achieve the desired results just as well, to amazing results of it’s own kind.

Hell, just look at Mania’s now-famous title screen for example:

Regardless of how much time it actually took to complete, you can tell there was a lot of effort spent in order to make it look as smooth and expressive as it is. And this is just the title screen. The rest of what we’ve seen so far looks just as eye-catching and appealing. The character animations, the enemy animations, the zones and their intricate colour schemes and patterns…

Why should such obvious effort be disregarded purely because it’s not in full 3D?
