Way back in the Summer last year, not too long after a certain Summer of Sonic, SEGA announced the SatBK art competition in which sixty lucky artists (from SEGA’s American, European and Japanese regions) would have their work immortalised in Sonic and the Black Knight the following spring. The calibre of art produced was staggering, and one can only imagine how much of a difficult choice it was for the judges to select pieces to win the contest.
Fortunately, SEGA of Japan have now put up online the winning entries (so you have longer than 5 seconds to admire them!) along with a large selection of “runner up” entries…some of which are definitely of noteworthy mention, so do take your time and have a long look through some stunning pieces of art. Around 70 entries from the Japanese arm of the contest are now up online to look through.
Who knows, perhaps if we’re lucky enough, the US and UK sites might do similarly (Go pester AAUK)!
You can check out all of the pieces on the Japanese Sonic and the Black Knight Flash Site. Just beware: it is all in Japanese!
