We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

@  Wulfsbane : (31 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Alright, AEW's All Out was pretty freaking good.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 August 2019 - 06:22 AM)

The Knux will Layeth the Smacketh Down all over your Candy Ass!

"Finally, the Knux...HAS COME BACK...to Angel Island!"

@  Wulfsbane : (19 August 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Strangely I can see it.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Imagine Dwayne Johnson voicing Knuckles...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 02:31 PM)

The Rock has come back? XP

@  chief : (17 August 2019 - 02:26 PM)

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 07:40 AM)

Good to hear.

@  chief : (13 August 2019 - 07:27 PM)

We are in talk with background artists actually...

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

@  wildfire : (13 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

Just saw the preview for Sea3son animated. It looks awesome! Voices are great. I only wish I had money to support.

@  wildfire : (12 August 2019 - 11:30 PM)

Glad to see this place is still bustling. I went through my old comics last night, made me think of you all. I miss this place sometimes.

Recently there was an auction on eBay for a background and some cels from SatAM's intro. It sold for a whopping two grand!

This is a pic from the auction:

s-l1600.jpg

These cels aren't placed exactly the way they were in the original scene, but it's close enough to give the idea. But look at Bunnie's thighs: they're brown.

Here's the Bunnie cel by itself:

s-l1600.jpg

Yep, two brown thighs. But Bunnie's thighs are consistently gray in the intro. What's going on here? Is this a fake cel?

The answer is no! If you look at the scene from the actual intro, frame by frame, you'll see this:

This is clearly the same Bunnie pose as in the eBay cel, but her thigh is gray, right? Yes, but look closely at the other thigh. You can barely see it, but it's brown!

In the next frame you can just barely see (it's only a couple of pixels) the previously exposed thigh is now brown as well. This is much clearer if you flip back and forth between the two images.

Shortly afterward, we see this frame (different from the eBay cel):

Nothing unusual here; both thighs are gray.

Attached File  sonic-frame4.png   692.58KB   1 downloads

This is a different Bunnie frame than the previous picture, but it's close enough to allow you to flip back and forth and see that the barely visible portion of her thigh does become brown here.


My hunch is that she was painted with brown thighs in the entire scene and it was corrected in post production, which is why the thighs become brown when they're mostly obscured. So it's only natural that she has brown thighs in the cels!

For what it's worth, she's had this color scheme in a model sheet, too:

Bunnie%28SatAM%29artwork.jpg

...which might explain how this happened. Either they were still undecided on Bunnie's thigh color, or the cel painter was working off the wrong model sheet. I think the latter is more likely, since she had gray thighs in Heads or Tails... and, let's face it, DiC is infamous for animation mistakes.

Weird stuff, huh?

Pretty cool stuff. I also think the cels are genuine because of how crystal clear and sharp the images are. You can see that better in the other shots on the same eBay auction. Though is it possible the frame where her thigh is just barely visible that it seems brown because of compression artefacting?

(Emphasis mine in your quote.) You got that right ...

Was it DiC who sent Archie character sheets that had Bunnie with a grey metal crotch plate or is that their mistake?
