Sonic 1 Act 01

Rough animation for the first of my Sonic the Hedgehog short films based off the original Mega drive/Genesis video games.
I was inspired by the Sonic Mania animated pre-order trailer and intro so I did spent the day animating that intro. That lead to me spending the next 5 days on the first episode on how the story begins.
The animation is rough as cleaning it up and then colouring it while painting nicely rendered backgrounds would take too much time, which, I do not have.

The animation is pretty good (plus, I just really like Sonic). It's smooth and fluid, and I like that. However, if I were to change one thing, I would have exported it as an mp4 or mov file. As it is right now, we're not able to pause and the time bar doesn't exist. Other than that, pretty good.

That Was Cool! I'll Be Waiting For More...

Thanks a lot! I hope to be able to start Sonic 3 act 1 at some point in the future after this busy period :)

Man that intro is somethin else! If i could see that in color I would freak

Flaxor responds:

Hey man, thanks a lot! I am definitely thinking about cleaning up and colouring the intro at some point, though that won´t be for quite some time, this is a very busy period for me now.
Cool vids, I checked some of yours out this week.

Mate this is awesome, I have no idea how you've made this so similar to the Sonic CD cinematic animation thingos but it's very acurate. I normally keep 5 star ratings to things that REALLY stand out. I have been inspired.

Flaxor responds:

Wow, what a fantastically positive review! Thanks a lot, I am honoured!

This was excellent! Pleasure to watch. If you get the opportunity to put more time on this and make another episode, it be greeted with open arms. Great charm & animation dude!

Flaxor responds:

Thanks a lot, really glad you enjoyed them! I do have a bit more to upload still so keep an eye out ;) and do hope I´ll have some more free time to invest into these in the future, I enjoy making them. :)
