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

Why does Sonic look evil?
EnderAndroid Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He doesn't look evil. He's just in his...serious face. :D (Big Grin)

If we get a Sonic game with cool graphics like this, then that in my opinion would be the best Sonic game ever created.

mmm, you not draw Sonic to well dont you?, any way! THE COLORS A SO BADASS!
Sonicfan730 Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
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!

The body looks off, scares me so much.
gamequeen0 Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Student General Artist
you could of been part of the sonic team when they made Sonic '06 <3
CelestialDrake Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.
Drag0n-Princess Featured By Owner May 5, 2013
Yet again, is so damn cool but scares the sh*t out of me xDDD... those eyes D':
FicticiousAnimation Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this is so super amazing. Sega should make a game based after your character design.

im glad sonic doesnt look like this, he looks really scary
pengie9290 Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
Sonic looks totally badass! My one complaint is that he looks a bit more... animalistic than usual. Then again, he's a hedgehog, so... What can I say? It's awesome!

Nice, I wonder what you would do with Knuckles.... or Vectorman, now that would be interesting, specialy since you got a pretty open slate with him.

Great work! I can't wait to see Tails, Knux, ect. I admit i'm a little apprehensive about Hollywood going and making a live action adaptation based on the game someday...
tails4evr Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I can probably legitimately say that is the most lifelike sonic I've ever seen, the fur in particular, looks remarkably real. Really great work!
