It might take a while to load, because it's a 19 MB flash file, an image sequence with 72 images.
You can click and drag to rotate the view.

No preloader, so it shows a white window until it loads. If it doesn't seem like it's loading, please download the .swf file


This is a recreation of the boss in marble garden zone from sonic 3.
It's a little bit custom, but the main aspects were kept.
The characters were modeled according to the original model sheets. Because of this it was impossible to pose the characters like it was in the game, (for example: Tails grabs Sonic with only one hand instead of two)
Modeling time was around 24 hours. I recently modeled Sonic and Tails (at the end of June, beginning of July), if i count that too, the time was ~40 hours.
I had more problem with the environment and the fire/smoke: I spent days to get it right and optimize the scene.
I rendered the images in 3 layers.
Average render time of 1 frame:
Layer 1: 70 min
Layer 2: 10 min
Layer 3: 15 min
Total render time: ~114 hours

Maybe in the future it'll be a cutscene and not just a still :iconteheplz:

Oh and of course animate it. xD

I'm sorry but this is just too much for me... I'm going to faint at how epic your 3D modelling tributes of the Sonic series are... *faints*

*wakes up and press fav button*

114 hours...? Man that's dedication... Congrats on making it to top spot in the Sonic 20th Anniversary contest Ricsmond!! *double thumbs up* The details your put into your 3d concepts pay homage to the Sonic series. The execution is also crisp clear and rich with textures as far as the eye can handle. Awesome stuff buddy, keep it up!!

I don't know what could be the problem :(
It's very unlikely that the browser is responsible, but you could try with another browser.
Even if you don't have the latest flash, it should work since it's AS2.

Also, I might have another go in Hydrocity and re-recreate it :lol:
But that only when I finish Launch base and Angel island too.
