How to draw Sonic the Hedgehog

Unleash your creativity as you learn to draw Sega’s iconic character, Sonic the Hedgehog, in a dynamic and spirited stance. This tutorial is designed to guide you through each step with precision and ease.

Capturing Sonic’s Iconic Appearance

  • Characteristic spiky hair
  • Expressive, large eyes and his classic red and white shoes
  • His gloves and the pose that showcases Sonic’s readiness for action

While focusing on these key features, consider the positioning of characters like Tails or Knuckles to complement Sonic’s drawing.

Drawing Tip: Pay special attention to the curves and spikes in Sonic’s hair to maintain his recognizable silhouette.

Finishing Your Sonic Sketch

After laying down the initial sketch and refining the details, inking is the final step. It brings out the boldness in Sonic’s figure, making him leap off the page. It’s important to let the ink dry to prevent smudging before gently erasing the underlying pencil marks.
