Depths of South Island by gsilverfish Depths of South Island by gsilverfish
It's done! Actually it would have been done a lot sooner (this is why you got a preview) but I managed to hurt my hand a bit after working extra hard on it the second day--I hold my stylus pretty tightly and after working for so long without a real break (once I get going on something like this it's hard to stop!) it started getting to me, I figured I'd better quit before I did some real damage.

Anyway, here's my latest Sonic picture! I like drawing the backgrounds so much I didn't even bother putting Sonic into this one. Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on the preview picture, and I hope you like the full version even better!

I'd like to do a second piece (making it a diptych!) showing the "city" levels, but it won't be for a while--focusing on my own non-fanart projects really takes priority! Thanks for looking everyone!

Looking at this, I realized I never really thought about how South Island's levels could be laid out. Well done!

It's too bad they put Spring Yard right after Marble Zone in the game. In my opinion, this makes a lot more sense.

I like to think that Labyrinth Zone is underneath Spring Yard, like maybe its sewer system dumps into it (ew). That way you still have the sense of going deeper underground and you don't have to do two "ruins" stages in a row.

Also many players would have been stumped less than half way through the game, if the comments on my Labyrinth Zone pics are anything to go by. :)

And I'd love to see a second piece showing the other three Zones.

I've often thought of these three levels as a "set", with the other three original zones as the other set. Granted, Labyrinth Zone was originally going to be the second Zone, between Green Hill and Marble, so maybe whoever designed the level concepts had a similar idea.

So is the next one going to be Death Egg in space over a Wing Fortress suspended in a Sky Chase hovering over a Hilltop that is part of the Emerald Hills that sinks into an Aquatic Ruin that leads to a Mystic Cave? I'd fund that.

Hah! Thanks! Here I was thinking with the new Sonic Generations footage, "well, no point in ever drawing the Green Hill Zone again!" I'm real impressed with the looks of that one. :)

I never really thought of the place being set out like this but now you've shown it like this with Green hill zone leading to Marble zone and then down again...it does actually make sense. It has such a Sonic feel to it too :D
