As mentioned I would be doing a second set. I figured rather than doing villains again I would try to do heroes whilst giving them are darker, more badass feel. With that in mind, here is Sonic!

Hope you guys like it!

For extra info visit my deviant as thats where I 'hang' lol. Just google 'Josh Summana Art'


Very nice work. I like your artistic interpretation of Sonic and how you decided to go the realistic route while still keeping him looking canon to his artwork and character. The fur effects were a very nice touch too. Keep of the good work.

really great rendition of sonic...just wish you could have thrown in a few rings for old times sake....great job though all in all, was this for a specific project or or personal work?

This is for work with 8bit Ego :)... just google them and you will see who we are lol. I was gonna throw some in but thought it might be a bit TOO much to have floating rings around :P.

awesomely done dude awesomely done!!


The craftsmanship of this, like your other work, is excellent. Top-notch drawing, effects, with the textures and all the other things. What bothers me with this one is the actual content matter. Sonic is okay, but the way you drew him here looks odd. It's like a mixture of smooth cartoon drawing and realistic animal combined. You do know that the yellow-y parts of him are also fur, right? And the way his hair just drops down as opposed to up in a razor thingy looks bad, too. The hair on his head has some glimmer on it that just look strange, too. It doesn't even look like his head is attached to the body; there's no flow of his structure. The head's too big, too. His right (our left) arm looks like a 2D drawing compared to the other one that's coated in sweet effects. This whole thing just needs reworking.

JoshSummana responds:

Thanks for the critique.

The reason I did part of his face smoother than the actual hair was to emphasise the roughness of it. I am aware that it is fur of course. I originally did it furry but he just looked too 'monster-ish' rather than his normal self.
Regarding his hair spikes... if you look at the 3D versions of Sonic etc etc... they DO slope downwards. They only stick straight out when he is running (which obviously he isn't here). Regarding his head size - this is the proportion the original Sonic was drawn at. I had to double check myself just because it felt strange. His head is about the same height as his body. take a look.

First glance i thought it was weird and awkward butt i stopped and really took in what you have created and damn man this picture is great. He looks so differrnt but derr thats the point of it i would love to see more!
