I can finally reveal that I was involved in some concept artwork for the game Sonic & All-Stars Transformed, the sequel to Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. The idea was to have hundreds of SEGA-themed stickers available in order to customise your in-game licence.
Sadly for a number of reasons, these stickers (along with more coming shortly) were not used for the final game As much as I was (and am) disappointed that they weren't, it was a fantastic opportunity to have on top of my regular responsibilities during my time at Sumo Digital Studios. Getting to draw Sonic artwork in an official capacity? Hell yes! Hundreds said I would never get to, after all. So I'm halfway there!
...That isn't to say that these couldn't become actual stickers in future... Stay tuned.
EDIT [21.11.2012]: Placing an edit here for both deviations, as it seems that some people don't understand the term "concept" i.e. They were not the final product, and would have gone under approval so that amendments can be made. I also had to whack out twenty concepts in little under a week, so of course there are some of them that look a little off!
They didn't choose it because Rouge the bat and Sliver the hedgehog isn't in the Transformed game. Yeah, I know. I was disappointed too. Metal Sonic will be in the game. Through he's the only new Sonic charcter in the transformed game.
It's a shame. I was hopping SEGA would add four more new Sonic charcters. Cream the rabbit, Rouge the bat, Metal Sonic and Sliver the hedgehog. But nooo, they only added Metal to the game and that's it. Lame! The game's not worth buying if Rouge, Cream and Sliver are missing.
Sorry, to disappoint you but Rouge and Sliver will NOT be in the Transformed game.
Wow, awesome stickers, gotta say Shame they didn't get to the game, I would have a reason to buy the game Jokes aside, my favourite ones would definitely be Silver, Rouge and the first one Great job on these, Li!
