(Note: I'm doing a mass-upload of stuff from FA, so phrases such as "about a month ago" and "this time" won't actually make too much sense, time-wise. Too lazy to fix fully, though! :U)
Well, here's something a bit different. Two remixes from Sonic 3 & Knuckles used for a 20th Anniversary animation, based on the wonderful written works of Nigel Kitching and artwork of Richard Elson, the beginning of Sonic the Comic's Running Wild arc, where Super Sonic really begins to take on a life of his own.
yuski about a month ago messaged me that he was preparing an animation for Sonic's 20th anniversary to be shown at Summer of Sonic 2011, and wondered if I wanted to help with the backing music. Of course, I said yes. Thus, this remix of Doomsday was born.
This one was actually made first, and made the intro to match the timing shown on the very first animation run that Yuski showed me. While that did lock down certain things within the animation and probably made the job a lot harder (sorry Yuski!) it certainly made the build-up that much more dramatic, especially at the part with the appearance of Super Sonic. Like the Hidden Palace track, this one goes on longer than the one in the video, as we had to end it where it did, so the whole build-up to the next loop you hear here, along with the additional loop of the song had to be stripped down for the credits sequence which just looped the little quieter bit. It worked well for the animation, definitely, with the timing, but I personally prefer the build-up to the next loop better. Much more dramatic(!)
If you were at Summer of Sonic yesterday, you got to experience the animation on a large screen projector along with myself and Tom (who did Sonic's voice), which was an amazing experience. (Especially everyone's reaction, really great seeing that(!)) If you didn't get to see it or just want to watch it again and hear it in more detail, and I suggest you do because Yuski's animation work on it is amazing, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLJOzTiw0aE
There is going to be more animated for it, but probably at a little bit of a slower rate as we don't have a month deadline to work to this time(!)
