Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Modern Remix

Consider this a mini SEGA Fan Art Showcase. Inspired by the official "cover" art for the soon to be digitally released Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, I decided to make an Episode 2 cover by using assets from modern games. I used the CG renders from Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing for Sonic, Tails and Eggman's face, while Eggman's hand is actually from his Sonic '06 render. The "2" was made with the SEGASONIC font found at the excellent site ACT SELECT and was given the 3D look in Illustrator CS4 using the 3D extrude and bevel tool. The rest was all done in Photoshop. I would like to spend a little more time on it, but it's not too shabby for under an hours work. Check out a larger version of the remix after the jump!

Man that's an awesome artwork! I wish Sega uses your art for Sonic 4 episode II. Great homage to the original Sonic 2 boxart.

Btw, that boxart brings back so many memories, what a great game Sonic 2 is.

Heh, just like how an image that was released for Episode I by Sega is essentially a remake of the Sonic 1 box art: http://info.sonicretro.org/File:Sonic4Episode1-box.PNG

Nice one!
