Early, never before seen Tails concept art discovered from Sonic SatAM TV show pilot Content: Twitter user @PlaceandH (Fieryfurnace) has uncovered never before seen concept art of Miles “Tails” Prower, drawn by Yasushi Yamaguchi (Judy Totoya), from a box of materials for DiC’s Sonic SatAM pilot episode sent by Sega in April 1992. Notable differences from the final classic design include long feet and a furry outer body in some of the drawings. Yamaguchi-san confirmed that this artwork is the earliest character set-up drawings, used as a base for the design of Sonic 2, with noticeable changes between the beta version title screen and the final version. Check out the art below, which has been preserved by Fieryfurnace through scanning efforts.

You can download the scans by going to the SatAM archive Dropbox archive.
