Sonic Character Design Tutorial Part 1 by Zephyros-Phoenix Sonic Character Design Tutorial Part 1 by Zephyros-Phoenix
So, here is part 1/3 of my Sonic Character Design Tutorial. REMEMBER THAT THIS IS NOT A HOW-TO-DRAW TUTORIAL, only a walkthrough of the process I go through when creating and designing my characters. This first part is meant to get your feet wet and give you some background information on how I think for making my characters.

Part 2 is when we'll really start looking at actual Sonic characters and physical features and details.

All images were provided by the Sonic wikia and Wikipedia. For your convenience, all animals shown have been labeled.

TUTORIAL PARTS
Part 1: Picking the Animal
Part 2: Physical Features
Part 3: Naming

This is pretty good I think. I'm not much of a Sonic fan but it looks pretty useful. Out of curiosity, are you going to do a part 2?

Cool Tutorial! Agree with you on the Hedgehog/Echidna/Fox thing, that's why i stick to dinosaurs (More design possibilities)

Your tutorial was really good (reading) until I saw the spiders! ;A; might not be a good idea to put that many if someone has arachnophobia. Could cause them to faint

I love this idea. It's completely useful considering those moments we have when we have trouble with a unique design.

Wow this is so cool. Can't wait for part two. Maybe this can help me draw my own Sonic OC, Platinum the Dragon, (her family), and Sky the Lioness.
