Who is Sonic's Sister? No clue.. It's not Sonia, that's for sure.. maybe she was a nun?
joking aside, many of you know about the canned Project 'Sister Sonic', meant to feature Sonic's lost sister.. either way, there is now a very short article about it in the articles section.. I'll be added it to the canned Games Section soon.. but there is pretty much nothing about it apart from what it was going to be, and why it wasn't..
I've added a new art section to the Gallery. Posters & Covers. Here we will put artwork as used in Posters and Covers (Not Game Covers though, since that Section is already up). So far, 5 images from Sonic the Comic. Including some work by my Fav STC artists (and one of my Fav Sonic Artists) Ferran Rodriguez!
I'm not 100% sure on this BUT.. There might be good news on the Chess Set.. Instead of posting a new Release date, as they normally do when it gets to release time (and so far, has been pushed back), the order status is now.. well.. it's german but it's "Produkt befindet sich im Zulauf" which means the order has been shipped from the makers to the Retailers. Thus it is released.. It might change into a new release date, meaning it's been pushed back, but it seams unlikely.. wow.. isn't this good news? Until i get my set in my hands, i'm still doubting a bit... It seams like we might find out in a couple of weeks huh?
Not big, just bigger. 6 new items of merchandise, all retro line cloths. Also i have tagged the next SatAM episode 'UltraSonic'. That's about it for now i think
EDIT: I've added a small bit to the Merchandise section.. Related. Why? well, sometimes, some items AREN'T in the same Series BUT they are very much related to it. For example, there was a Series of Chibi (short&Fat) Sonic Models. Some were released as little models, they also used the SAME figures for Keyrings, Bells etc. So they aren't in the same series, but very much related. the Sonic the Fighters Plushies are in atlest 3 different Series, but they are all related as they are Sonic the Fighters items ^_^ anyway, i'm doing that now... Enjoy
Okay, I have Added Tags for the SatAM Episode 'Sonic Boom' (I found a bit of a quicker way to do it.. not much quicker, but it's easyer going) so that Ep is all tagged up now. The SatAM Intro is, i believe, fully tagged. Also, i fixed the Aspect Ratio on Sonic Boom Screenshots (it showed them as 16:9 when that was just scretched 4:3) and i noticed i have completely forgotten to give Nicole a page in the Character Profiles, so i added it.
Oh, you didn't know it, but the last post, was my first 'delayed' post ^_^ things were quite ready, but i knew they would be in 30 mins, so i set it to post the news item at the time.. nice huh?
I have got it set so any art will need to be approved before it displays, but i think 10 hours (max 24) between you posting and it coming online sounds about right.. It shouldn't take me too long unless something really weird is going on..
Oh, I would say, make sure you get an account with the messageboard, which is shared with the gallery, so you can upload your art.. really, i was fixing about allowing people just to e-mail it in, but it would be a little trickyer (and wouldn't look as nice in the gallery) so.. it doesn't take too long to set up an account.. though sadly, this need to be approved by me due to spamers and yes, i have gotten fair amount of spam bots trying to join of late..
All of the OVA Screenshots have been retagged, and all the Character Profiles link to a Galley search now.. Oh, and if people think i'm going to get ALL of the other screenshots tagged up anytime soon without an assitance, you guys have another thing coming.. That's over 40,000 images... the speed at which i can tag each image is probebly about 5 screen shots minture due to the Correct Tagging.. No chance is that something i have both time for and enegy.. So it'll probebly go slowly.
Just a quick note to say: I have alot of the 'Search for images' done for the Game characters now, and i have tagged a whole bunch.. Also, i have deleted any old User gallerys (they weren't being used right anyway) that are on the gallery and i have disabled them until i have everything ready for this new Fan art stuff.. And i do so hope people will use it when it's up..
I've added some trivia information on SatAM Characters based on early Draft information. That's pretty much it for now. I also plan to add a bit for unused characters, ones that were in early drafts but never made it to the finished show.
I also want to start expanding sections in reguards to character art. Thus, what i want to do is a little like what is already done for sarah (OVA), you will be able to view a set of images of that character via the bio page. I also would like Fan Art submissions, not just for finished characters, but for Unmade characters. I shall be working on some based on describions and ideas for characters that never got designed or atlest, no office design is known. If you wish to submit fanart, there are two ways. You can either E-mail it in to me (Give me a name you wish to be credited as) and i'll handle the upload and stuff. also give image descrition, OR you can join the message board, PM me so i'll create a personal art folder for you in the gallery, and you can upload stuff yourself. Remember, only upload your OWN art, and nothing adult.
I'll be working on a full set of rules for art submissions soon.
