Commentary for August 06, 2018:
Because of my decision to change out an old story arc in favour of one featuring Blaze the Cat, I found I needed to re-create the first scene of this page, as Knuckles was originally present with Sonic and Tails to collect the Chaos Emeralds from South Island. Without the story now replaced by the new Page #038, Knuckles now had no reason to be there.
But then, the original scene was also in Emerald Hill Zone, which is on Westside Island, not South Island. So I thought, "I should change the setting to Green Hill Zone," and it simply wasn't good enough to just call Emerald Hill Zone "Green Hill Zone", becaause they do look different and any Sonic fan will be quick to point it out. So, instead, I re-created the setting for the first scene as well, using a combination of Green Hill Zone from Sonic Mania and Neo Green Hill Zone from Sonic Advance.
I liked the result a lot. But it left the drab, barren, bare Angel Island settings I'd originally used severely wanting. So, I had to upgrade those too, with some of the better Angel Island backgrounds I'd made later.
And then, while I was at it, I figured I might as well use Shadow sprites from Sonic Battle instead of the custom ones by Daniel Sidney I had originally used. And this made remastering pages #046 through #050 pretty time consuming. Worth it, though. This story arc deserved the makeover.
