So after working on Shadow and Metal Sonic, we finally have the blue blur himself, Sonic the Hedgehog. When making this piece, there was a lot of inspiration from the character’s past. First of all, the general look of the piece was inspired by Archie Sonic issue 3 in which Sonic and Tails had “zoomed” off the comic and then back on claiming that their comic was the one to buy. Also while working on this I added a blue hue to the piece which was inspired by the classic art of the Genesis which has always tried to look “futuristic” and “advanced. And of course, the general design with shades is inspired by Steve Butler from the original Archie comics (around the early post 100th issue) as are all the Sonic drawings that I do here. Anyway, hope everyone likes it.
