Boy Boom Hedgehogs by darkspeeds Boy Boom Hedgehogs by darkspeeds
This came out much better than I thought!


This was good practice for my digital painting skills with my new brush set from :iconjonasdero:. It was also a good opportunity for me to develop my own unique rendering of the 'Sonic style' that balances toon and anatomical structure. 


This was a fun piece to work with and it was also an art trade with :iconmyly14:. She's been drawing those sexy hedgehogs so many times that it became the inspiration behind this piece - with an added 'Boom' touch. Hope ya like it Mily!

We still have Silver left to be revealed. I can HOPE that this is similar to what they do, unlike Shadow, who...barely changed whatsoever.

Ok this is by far the best Sonic Boom related drawing so far. Love the backgrounds you gave each of them and the designs for Shadow and Silve rare amazing. I really want Shadow and Silver to appear in Sonic Boom. I would cry happy tears if they did. Awesome job.

Shadow looks pretty good in that style.

Sonic though... I dunno, there's just something off about that one. Not sure how to word it.

It's good that they kept Shadow and Metal's designs simple - that's the way to go I reckon!

Oh and take your time with yours! There's no rush to return the artwork! XD Just make sure they look downright sexy! *SHOT again* XD

And stop pervin' on their bodies like that! Only I get to perv! Mua ha ha... *get's smacked by all three hedgehogs*

But yeah seriously, take your time. I had fun drawing this and I got to practice my rendering skills. ;)

It's funny seeing them with this style. Because of the attempt to be more anatomical structured, they almost seem naked. I guess to me, it's kinda awkward. Trying to find a balance between cartoony and realistic is hard, especially for "Sonic style" which is the most cartoony style out there. Taking those models and just putting muscles on them, to me anyway, doesn't look right. Then again, I don't know how you would make that work.
