Drawing Knuckles the Echidna

Step 1.


Knuckles wants you to draw him cool and correctly, of course. So here are the tips. TIP A. The head has a shape that can be really hard to draw, but if you look at it carefully, you will see that it is based on the shape of an egg but is angular. A   

Step 2.


TIP C. Knuckles' body is bucket-shaped or like that. It smoothly goes to the legs; the bodymark is shaped like a crescent moon and takes place close to the top of the body. Its tips are near to points from where arms grow. TIP D. Legs and arms a   

Step 3.


TIP E. Shoes are based on rectangles; soles go over shoes, not under them and so they can cause shadows on shoes; stripes are stripes, not straps, and they are right where Lego things are; the Lego things are placed on shoes and stand out. Only 3   

Step 4.


Oh my gosh, Knuckles is still waiting for us to start drawing him! D: We'd better stop trying his patience and sketch the guidelines. The base of the head looks like an oval when in full face. Knuckles' height is about 4 of his heads.

Step 5.


Draw his muzzle, body and add the eyes guideline.

Step 6.


Draw arms and legs. Mine aren't all around the guidelines because I realized they were wrong. I corrected the head's shape and the muzzle stands out now. You can also add body's center line.

Step 7.


Give shape to hands (his left one looks bigger because it's closer to us) and feet and draw a thunder-shaped line for the tail. Note that the gloves have only one finger, like mittens.

Step 8.


Shape the tail itself. In this drawing its middle part is short because of the perspective. Sketch cylinders for the cuffs; you don't need to be accurate - we'll change them completely later. Why? Because. >:3 ... Ah, well, the reason is they reall   

Step 9.


Draw the eyes. Their 'middle eyebrow' covers a tiny part of the muzzle. Add soles and knuckle spikes(2 on each glove).

Step 10.


Sketch simple rectangles for the Lego things. Now we can shape the cuffs (ones on the shoes go over Lego plates). Then draw lines to figure out spikes' placement.

Step 11.


Draw the spikes. Most of them are visible here. Add details to the shoes. Lego things aren't paper-thin. Imagine them like flat boxes.

Step 12.


Add the crescent mark on Knuckles' body and draw his eyebrows. Now look at your drawing carefully. Are there any details you forgot? In my picture, it was the farthest part of the shoe stripe.

Step 13.


Draw the face, remove lines you don't need anymore, correct parts you don't like if they exist and, if you don't want to color, your drawing is finished. Thanks for posing, Knuckles!

Step 14.


Coloring tips: Knuckles' fur is bright red with white mark. His eyes can be colored purple as well as dark blue; shoes are darker than the fur; stripes are yellow and cuffs are green, but not vice versa.
