I decided to add some more dynamic, traditionally animated parts to this one since they look much nicer than using symbols. It took longer than the first one, about 7 days excluding the intro.
I used the music from Hyper Potions with permission.
Check out their work if you haven´t already, but I´m guessing you´ve more than likely played Sonic Mania already.

Once again, a wonderful adaption. I especially loved the tornado move, wish that was possible in the games, even if only in a cutscene.

Flaxor responds:

Thanks a lot!! Yeah, i was wishing for that to be a move since foever, guess this is my little way of fitting it into the game. ^_^

A bit on the sketchy side, but amazingly well-animated. Perfect use of perspective and timing. I would have put more weight and force here and there. The best example is whenever Sonic lands after a jump, and specially after Sonic attacks an enemy, by adding more force to each attack it would give it more force. I also loved the composition of each individual scene in this short, nothing looks like it was setup at the last minute without any creativity in mind

Flaxor responds:

You´re right, even for rough animation it can get very rough some times. Thanks for all the kind words and advice and taking the time to write a review!

Holy crap, did I just hear a sound effect from 3D Blast at the beginning? Well, look who did their homework. Excellent job, my dude!

Flaxor responds:

This sort of homework is pretty damn fun ;)
Though I hate to say it, I got the sonic FX from Sonic CD, not 3D, but I think I know the jingle you are on about. The one just after the openning 3D intro when Sonic jumps into the camera and it goes to the start screen.
Thanks a lot for the kind words!

Really good dude! I'm a sonic fan and i liked the sonic mania animated cinematic. This animation really reminded me of that and I think you did a great job considering you said it only took you 7 days(excluding intro :P)! I wish i could animate as well as you, really good job dude, i just can't stop saying it.

Flaxor responds:

Thanks a lot man! I'd never get tired of hearing your kind words!
The trick wirh Sonic is just animate him like a bouncong ball, then it becomes easy, lots of bunches up and very spaced out and stretched drawings for the timing and spacing.

Again i'm impressed, thanks for posting these. Seeing some quality Sonic is always nice.

Flaxor responds:

Thanks again for the kind words. Wish I could just dedicate myself to these and polish them up
