This was the second shadow box in my collection that broke my unofficial rule of not showing the title of the game (This rule is now useless). Just like Super Mario World (SNES), the title screen is so colorful and perfect that I had to make another exception. This scene was my favorite thing to draw as a kid!
Astute observers may notice that the '2' is missing from the title. This was an intentional decision to show more of the beautiful landscape in the background. And besides, everybody knows that its Tails who defines the sequel, not the number!
This glass-framed shadow box measures 10x12.5 inches and the viewport matches the 4:3 aspect ratio of the original scene. All of the images are printed on high-quality matte cardstock and laser cut for precision. The sprites are layered and raised to create a three-dimensional image that brings the scene to life. Pictures do not do it justice!
