Sonic by JoshSummana Sonic by JoshSummana
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!

We have opened up a new store where my own (and others) artwork is now available for purchase if you're interested! This & more will be coming every week so stay tuned!! :) 


Here are the other heroes if you haven't seen them already :)


Mega Man


Donkey Kong

If you're feeling a bit more into the darker side, check out The Villains


This collection is part of a gallery showcase that will be announced in the near future as part of a gaming media company I'm part of 8bit Ego. Please join the Facebook page for more information :)

Check out 8bit Ego if you get a chance :) It's the lovely bunch of chaps I share loves with!

This piece of artwork is absolutely divine! The shading and lighting are perfect. Even down to the smallest detail like the individual strands of fur or the shadow of his nose are done very well! Every time I look at this, it seems to pop off the screen! To be honest, when I first saw this piece I thought it was some sort of edited cosplay. It's also not just this piece, it all of yours. You are a truly amazing artist and your work is amazing! I also love the expression, he seems irritated or slightly nervous. Maybe both? Never the less, I hope to see more of your works on the first page of DA, keep up the spectacular work!

Oh...this has capture my attention to Sonic. He looks so realistic like an animal. I love the mix of blue and orange fire. It's carefully well done. I'm also impress by his impression of his looks because he looks dead serious to me. I love it. I also love the color values in the background of and I like how the fur was showing texture like a real furry animal. It's natural. Sonic looks natural in this picture and showing action this. The nose looks like a berry to me. XD Looks like you show a lot od depth and details into this. I applaud this piece. :D

Wow! This is great! The only thing I would recommend should be to enlarge his spines and make a slightly more cartoon out of him!

This looks really really good. The only thing that looks off to me is his body, which looks to small.
Bender617 Featured By Owner May 5, 2013
Sonic has weird proportions that works well with its cartoony drawing. Drawn realistically with those proportions make it look weird and stupid

How very constructively critical of you.
EnderAndroid Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed, JoshSummana . This is good art. Bender617 here is probably one of the same fanboys who complained about Sonic's green eyes.

Sonic Taunt Kids, don't complain about my green eyes!
