Sonic Adventure Minecraft

The goal of Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of Sonic Adventure in Minecraft as well as include brand new areas you can explore.
Massively expanding upon the city of Station Square and turning it into a real city with locations from other well known Sonic games thrown in as well.
There are hundreds of unique pedestrians in the game you can interact with as well as Chao populating the Chao Gardens and badnik/enemies populating the action stages.

You can download Beta V3 of the project from here:…
You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly. Everything you need will be provided for with the download file though please be aware it may be a lengthy and complicated process if you haven't already adapted to Minecraft 1.6.4.

Visit the archive section of my journal if you want to download any previous versions of the project.

You can see plenty of videos of the project in action on my youtube channel here:…

Shenmue Minecraft

The goal of Shenmue Minecraft, like Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of both Shenmue 1 and 2 in Minecraft, complete with my own unique areas and locations to create a huge expansive world out of an old game.
The map of Yokosuka in this project is going to be huge and will cover many unique districts that will be new to Shenmue fans such as Aida Park, Lamistar Shopping District, Takome Village, etc.

In the final version, you'll be able to travel from Yokosuka to Hong Kong through Amnihama Station which will take you to Wan Chai, Kowloon, Guilin, Shanghai, Tokyo and Guiyang, the city featured in my Shenmue 3 fan-fiction novel.… (Guiyang being heavily inspired by the map from Sleeping Dogs)

I also plan to populate the city with thousands of unique NPC's, both familiar and original. (Though in the current betas you'll only be able to interact with Shenmue exclusive characters)

You can download Beta V2 of the project from here:…

Minecraft World

As well as both Shenmue and Sonic Adventure, I've also started working on another major project where I plan to recreate real life towns and cities across the UK using Minecraft and Google Maps. Each town and city is going to be it's own project but the overall project is going to simply be called Minecraft World.
So far I'm just going to be focusing on each town's shopping center and working my way out into the suburban and industrial areas later on. My focus right now is Cheltenham Spa and Exminster Village but I'll soon be spreading out into Birmingham, Gloucester, Exeter, Exmouth, Paignton, Goodrington, Torquay, Bristol, London, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Stroud, Brixham, Sidmouth, and Seoul (South Korea).

I have plenty of other towns and cities planned afterwards if I feel it's worth the effort, but these 17 areas will be my main focus for the time being.
None of this should really interfere with both Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft, it's really more of a side project to go alongside them.
I'll keep updating on the progress as I go so for now, watch this space.

Other Projects

Animal Crossing Minecraft

This is a side project I'm working on in an attempt to bring the world of Animal Crossing to Minecraft. The finished version is going to be a huge world of over 20 unique villages all connected by a railway system, a large city and small town to explore, a tropical resort island and even chao gardens. Every single existing Animal Crossing NPC will be part of the project as well as over 50 human residents that you can interact with.
No word on when the project will be finished but as it's much smaller than my other projects, I'd much rather release the finished version for download instead of releasing updated beta versions every year.

You can see an early sneak preview of the project here:

SegaSonic ArcadeCraft

The goal of this project is to recreate the 1992 arcade cabinet game, SegaSonic Arcade in Minecraft, letting you play with either Sonic, Ray or Mighty as you have to traverse each of the 7 stages of Eggman's Island and survive the deadly traps and obstacles along the way.
This is only a short project so I plan to release the full game for download when it's ready, rather than releasing earlier builds for download every year.
You can see an early sneak preview of the project down below.

Sonic 1 Minecraft

Sonic 1 Minecraft is going to be a recreation of the 1991 classic Sonic the Hedgehog on Megadrive in full 3D. The stages are going to be completely redesigned from the ground up and I'm going to be making the game using the original sprites for each level as well as populating the game with Badnik enemies, animals and new challenging boss fights.
I have future plans to give Sonic 2, 3, Knuckles and CD the same treatment.

Wreck it Ralph Minecraft

This is a project I don't intend to even start for a long time but it's something I've been passionate about doing for a long while now.
I intend to recreate the entire world of Wreck it Ralph from the Movie in Minecraft.
Game Central station will be the central hub and from there you can travel to over a dozen different arcade worlds, from Fix it Felix Jr, Sugar Rush, Hero's Duty to other licenced arcade franchises like Sonic Championship, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and many more.

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga is my attempt to continue and finish off Yu Suzuki's Shenmue saga which has been in limbo since the Dreamcast died in 2001.
This project is basically my own interpretation to how I personally envision Shenmue 3, should it ever exist someday. There's going to be 11 chapters in the story bringing Ryo through Guilin, Kowloon and to the Chinese city of Guiyang where the story finally concludes.
The project has been on hold for a long while now but you can read the current 8 chapters of my story here:…
I'll update when the rest are ready,

Hopefully someday I'll turn this into a web comic and maybe even an animated movie or game but for now I'm more concerned with having the story itself finished and uploaded for those interested to be able to read and have some sort of closure with the series, even if it is just a fictional interpretation.

Katherine and Hippoloid

This is a project of mine that I've been passionately taking about for years yet have very little to show for in terms of progress, but Katherine and Hippoloid was my first project that I started when I was 15 and have been very enthusiastic and passionate about ever since.
It's a 5 part story about a girl named Katherine and her best friend Rhys who (while never explained in the story) both have superhuman like abilities to be able to defy gravity and basically travel around the world as freely as a feather.
But in the story their entire world is under attack from an alien invasion lead by an evil tyrant known only as Untitled and a secret resistance group lead by a small hippo named Hippoloid join forces with Katherine & Rhys in an effort to stop the invasion and save both of their worlds from Untitled's rule.

Outside of concept character artwork and the story itself I don't have much to share on the project but I really do hope in the future to be able to turn this into my own video game series, animated series or at the very least a web comic.

This is a project I've been passionate about for most of my entire life now.


This is a project I started when I was in college and was hoping to turn it into a side scrolling horror game for Newgrounds and DeviantArt but my attention has shifted towards other things and the project currently remains in Limbo.
Basically the premise of the project is a 3 part horror series about a teenage boy named Andrew who wakes up in a post apocalyptic future that's completely alien to him. He finds himself all alone in what appears to be a normal city that after sunset becomes Mysteriously infested with zombies, but as he digs deeper into this doomed society he realises that the secrets behind this reality go much, much deeper.

I don't know when I will continue working on this project but concept art for it does exist in my DeviantArt gallery so you can at least have a rough idea of what the project looks like.

Outside of this, I have plenty of other projects in the works, from fan games to animated shorts, comic books and loads more. It's a long road ahead but I'm going to work hard to try and make it all happen. Hopefully you'll enjoy what I have in store.

Robotnik in Wonderland is up!

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 24, 2015, 4:49 PM

::The Crimson Emo's Journal::

Cross paths by TheCrimsonEmo Dudley St, Birmingham 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Westgate St, Gloucester 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Commission: Katherine and Rhys by QuantumJinx

Hey guys, welcome to my DA page.

Here I plan to bring you all my latest projects for the future as well as upload all my artwork and photography.
My main aspiration in life is to make it big as an animator and game designer, I hopefully wanna move to the big city and set up my own little art studio so I can make my dream happen.
Thanks so much for supporting, and hopefully you'll enjoy my work too when it's ready.
- Ashton

I am grateful for everyone who views and enjoys my work, sorry if I can't respond to every single comment and message I get but I hope you understand, very often I'm really busy and I can only respond to a handful of messages at a time.

If you wanna use my Photography as stock or colour in any of my art, don't hesitate to ask. But please wait for my permission first otherwise I'm going to treat your devitation as art theft and instantly report it.

:Robotnik in Wonderland is up!::

It took me a little longer than I anticipated to clean up the entire script and have it ready for publication so I apologise for the long wait.
Because the script was so big I had to split it into two halves and upload them both separately, here they are nonetheless:

Robotnik in Wonderland Part 1
The opening credits play exactly the same as Disney's Alice in Wonderland only with Zinyak from Saints Row IV singing the opening theme and the Wonderland characters replaced with AOSTH characters.
show scenes of:
-Robotnik sleeping by the riverbank with Dinah
-Robotnik falling down the rabbit hole and seeing Professor Caninestien mixing chemicals
-Wes Weasley and Sg. Doberman walking along the beach
-Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts as the card guards painting the roses red
(Don't show any non-AOSTH characters for the opening as those cameos are supposed to be a surprise for the movie)
The credits fade away to reveal a peaceful riverbank where Momma Robotnik is reading a book to her son while he's lying on the grass playing with his cat, Dinah.
Momma Robotnik just so happens to be singing out loud the same song the pig father hums to himself in Tiny Tunes: How I spent my vacation.
Momma Robotnik: Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm. Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmmmm-hmmmmm. Hmm,
Robotnik in Wonderland Part 2
Day has now turned to nightfall as Robotnik finds himself wandering aimlessly through a dark wood, having absolutely no idea where he is or how he can get home. Robotnik wandering aimlessly stumbles across a confusing crossroad and then sits down on a rock to try and gather his thoughts.
Robotnik: *Sigh* It's useless. I've been wandering through these damn woods for hours, and still I haven't been able to find Sonic or a way out of these despicable woods. Ohh, my dear Momma and Dinah must be ever so worried so...
As Robotnik is sobbing to himself, The Cheshire Cat from Alice Madness Returns appears before him. (The conversation between the two suggests they also have a previous history together).
Cheshire Cat: Well, well. This is a pleasant surprise. Fancy meeting you here, Doctor.
Robotnik: You Chocolate Baboon! I should of known an annoying furball like you would inhabit a poorly animated dive such as this.
Cheshire Cat: Well now, is that any way to greet an old friend? I would of im

Really hope you enjoy it.

With this out of the way I'm now going to be putting everything else aside and focusing solely on Sonic Craft Adventure for the time being. I've already created concept artwork for most of the stages in the game, all of the sprite work is pretty much finished and most of the character models for all of the playable characters and enemies in the game are as well.

I still have a ton of badnik enemy models to go through but once that's done I can start building the actual world itself, focusing on each zone at a time then later coming back to populate each area with animals and enemies, then again for the finishing touches and the scenery.
Once the concept artwork is done I'll upload it for everyone to see as well as make a video showing off the game in progress.

I can't imagine it'll take me too long to finish off the remaining concept artwork and I'm very eager to show off what's done so far.

Jon CJG is working on an eighth season of Arby 'n' the Chief. It premieres within a few months.

Nice! Is he doing it because he wants to though or because 'the fans are making him do it'?
And on that note, how the hell is he even going to!? The only way I can see it premiering is if they start off with 'herp-derp, the gas explosion didn't go off after all, things are back to normal now'

I hope you're okay, Sir.
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've been meaning to send you this for ages. I think you'd really like this…
ThePuzzleSolver Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015
This is going to come the hell out of nowhere, but I would genuinely like to know, please. What is your brutally honest opinion of me? Please include what you dislike about me and what you think my flaws are. You know me better than most, and I've been doing a lot of introspection lately, and could do with a second opinion, if you don't mind. On a similar note, do you consider our bond healthy, or do I generally make you feel depressed?
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You really need to seek a psychotherapist to help you deal with these issues. I know its the last thing you want to hear but the truth is, you are never going to be able to fully deal with these problems and mental issues by yourself because you can only understand them from your own perspective.
Me and your other friends can give help and support but we can only do so much for you because we're not trained psychiatrists who deal with depression.

There's a youtube channel I follow called Psychology in Seattle, its like a radio podcast channel hosted by a psychiatrist called Dr. Kirk Honda. they cover a range of different topics but one topic he's covered before is depression and suicide.
The reason I bring this up is because he had a guest speaker come in who's like a grad medical student who's had chronic depression her entire life and she explained how therapy helped her to manage it.

I mean she flat out said, there's no cure for Chronic depression, it's not something a therapist can cure for you, but it at least helped her to manage and control it to the point where she knows that whenever she has those thoughts, its her depression giving her those thoughts, not her thoughts causing depression. Or so to speak.
Those weren't her exact words, I'm just putting it into perspective.
But yeah even Kirk Honda said, not every therapist will work for you, you sometimes might have to try different therapists until you find the one that's right for you.

Again it's not what you want to hear but it's really gotten to the point where you've pretty much done all that you can for yourself in managing your depression and its not going to get really any better or worse for yourself until you see things from someone else's perspective, and as much as I can help, I'm not a trained perfessional in any way, the only advice I can really give you besides this is to give yourself so many distractions in life that you'd honestly be too damn busy to even take the time to care.
Hell that's what I've been doing.

Maybe that really is what you need, I mean, what is your drive for getting out of bed in the morning? Y'know, what motivates you to exist as a human being?
I mean it's one thing to say you wanna be an animator like Egoraptor and be a voice actor but if you don't persue your own goals then you have nothing but your own mental state to occupy your mind, and thats when you get all these thoughts that just make you question why you bother living or what's the point in life, y'know?

I mean, fuck, I fucking hate my life, I hate every single aspect of it. I'm probably the exact polar opposite of everything I WANT to be in life.
I hate my fucking job so much that every SINGLE day for the past 11 months I've wanted to have a violent mental breakdown and tell these fucking third world bastards I have to work with to find themselves another fucking kitchen porter and throw my apron off and just walk out, threaten violence if they even so much as follow me.

I hate this fucking apartment I live in that every single day I regret signing the lease. It's a fucking shithole with so many problems I almost wish the authorities would step in and arrest the people who manage this place, hell I don't even feel safe in my own home as I constantly have paranoid thoughts that an intruder could just walk in without any effort at all and steal all my shit.
Hell just last night I came home to find my lights were off and was paniking because I thought an intruder was in my home as I was pulling into the entrance. I was too terrified to even unlock the front door.

I fucking hate my life here, but I don't want to go back to my old life either as I hated that even more. Y'know I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't.
Until luck strikes me and I either win the lottery or find a better job I'm just damned to rot in this slump of misery until the day I retire. And fuck me, I don't even know if I can manage a year doing this, nevermind 40+.

But even with all of that, I still hate my body, hate my looks, hate my hair, even the sound of my own voice. I'm almost the direct polar opposite of eveything I wish I could be but yet, I wouldn't trade any of it for the world because despite feeling like I've made every single possible wrong desision in my life, its our life experiences and our own thoughts and inspirations that make us who we are, not our achievements or successes.
I mean hell, things could always be WORSE than they are, we could both die and end up being reincarnated as starving african children or a chinese orphan or even worse.

So yeah, for me its my goals an ambitions that keep me motivated to keep going and suffer through all of this crap.
I wanna get my ideas out there in the world. I want people to read my stories or play my games, watch my videos or just see my own visions and ideas come to life and feel that I've made an imprint on the world that people can appretiate long after I'm gone.
If not for that, then what's honestly the point in any human being being here?
The Earth is nothing if not for the history we imprint onto it. Least that's how I feel anyway.

Sorry for butting in *and this will sound really weird*, but you getting a mentor *perhaps they're called Life Coaches on your side of the pond* might help. I have three of them, and I'm a close friend to two of them. Might not sound like much, but sometime a listening ear and some uplifting advice *even if you have to ask for it more than once* can really work some wonders into a soul.
TheCrimsonEmo Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for the help, I don't think that would really work for me though, all of my problems are financial, and tbh I couldn't afford something like that anyway.

Im speechless! Is that wise though? I'm sure there are many, myself included who don't even own the 2nd game yet. It's barely a year old even.
If they keep announcing new games this fast it could just oversaturate and kill their own market.
