Drawing Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog


First, I will explain give some tips of drawing Sonic. The reason is not every artist can see unique features of the character right. I have seen people draw Sonic with a triangle nose, 4, 5 and even 8 spikes on his head instead of 6 and such. So...   


TIP C. Sonic's body has a shape that may look like an egg. So does his body mark. The body is smaller than Sonic's head and smoothly goes to his legs. Arms grow from the 'edge' of the body. No shoulders and no neck! TIP D. A bit of the bodymark is   


TIP E. The shoe is triangle-shaped and is almost as big as Sonic's head. The sole of the shoe is higher when closer to the heel; a stripe in the middle is a strap, not a stripe... So it covers the shoe; a buckle goes over the strap, NOT around it    


And now, finally, we start drawing Sonic himself, yay :3 Start with the guidelines. Remember that the head is a circle. Lines on it show the center of the head and where the muzzle will be drawn. Draw simple curved lines for legs, arms and body. Yo   


Next, we draw the muzzle. The cheek stands out of the head, if you remember. Also add a guideline for the eye. Draw Sonic's egg-shaped body and its center line which will help later. The body covers the head a bit. No neck!


Draw the eye. Its middle line covers itself with its own closest to us part *if you understood this, you're a genius. My congrats x)* Give a volume to legs and arms. (Drawing the invisible parts can seem strange, but this helps.)They're wider to an    


Remove lines you don't need. Draw hands (i fixed some parts i didn't like) and shoes, without details yet, but you may already draw soles. Add a spike(or spikes, it depends on the angle in which you drew the body) and a tail (mine is almost not see   


Draw the spikes on Sonic's head and his eyebrows. The farthest one covers the headline a bit because of the head's angle. Add the mark on the body. When drawn right, it can show in which direction the body is turned. Detail the shoes by adding stra   


Draw the face expression, remove all the lines you don't need anymore and you're done!


Here you can see (if you are interested) how I colored my drawing. I also fixed a few remaining mistakes. P.S. I'll give you the last tip: the eyelids can be colored like Sonic's muzzle and arms, as well as blue like his main color.

Description: Hello everyone! Today we will draw our blue hero, Sonic. This may seem hard, but if you get everything about the character right, you can draw him. I tried to explain how to do things to get a good-looking result. You can go another way. I believe your drawing will look great, maybe even better than SEGA's ;D And something else: if you find grammar mistakes here, please comment. My English isn't perfect.
