Description: Well I have made a very special and epic five tutorial lessons that I think most of you will enjoy. All five tutorials were requested by members and many of them were requested multiple times. So I present to you all, this very exciting first lesson on how to draw Shadow the Hedgehog from Sonic the Hedgehog step by step. I know for a fact that Shadow is going to be an absolute hit with most of you artist out there that love learning new things. Shadow is considered to be the second most popular character from the Sonic series. He made his first gaming debut in Sonic Adventure 2. As explained in the game, Shadow the Hedgehog was created by Professor Gerald Robotnik as he was the head of a project to work on how to obtain immortality. Shadow is Sonic’s rival through the gaming series and he looks very similar to Sonic as well. They have virtually almost the same spiked hair, body style and size; and he even wears the same hover skates that propel him at extreme speed. When Professor Gerald Robotnik created Shadow he was known as “The Ultimate Life Form". When drawing Shadow I wanted him to look wicked awesome and visually stimulating. The drawing of Shadow took me like thirty minutes, but the coloring, shading, and special effects took me two hours. I also wanted to emphasis on his speed and stamina so what I did was, add some flames on the bottom of his feet as you can see in the tutorial image. Learning how to draw Shadow the Hedgehog character step by step is something that seems like it would take a very long time to do. But the way I laid out the tutorial steps, will help you draw Shadow in in no time at all. If you think this lesson is cool, wait till you see what is coming up next. I hope you all find this lesson helpful and fun, I will be back in a while with more exciting new drawing lessons in a bit so keep your eyes open and pencils ready.
