Let's Draw Sonic Archie .:01:. by darkspeeds Let's Draw Sonic Archie .:01:. by darkspeeds
[EDIT] (7:07AM - 25th JAN 2011)

Holy moly! Sorry about the grammar errors on the descriptions part! I fixed it up now so it should sound a lot more smoother... XD;

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been on an art block this week regarding the GRAND HUNTER series. I need to take a break from it all and have some fun.


I checked out Tracey's excellent tutorial on character expressions (she is the artist to Lackadaisy) and got inspired to do this.


I may extend this tutorial to more than three parts depending on time and motivation. At least this 3 part tutorial will act as a tribute to Sonic's 20th Birthday and as a way of thanks to all of those who continue to appreciate my artwork and support the Sonic community.

Enjoy and a bonus cookie to anyone who draws Knuckles as a Rastafarian! ;)


This is even bigger and badder! ;)

I was hoping to cram all three characters into Part 02 but there just wasn't enough room! X_X;;

Took me half a day to do this, I hope it helps out those who just want to go that extra mile in improving their drawing of a favourite character in the comic series. :)

Rasta Knuckles is fantastic. I hope he makes a return at some point! Maybe Vector steals his pot and he has to go looking in Wacky Weed zone for some more?

I don't think many people can pick up a pencil and draw expressions...I know I can't, which is why I love silly cartoons like Egoraptor and Boxer Hockey because they flaunt such a massive catalouge of moods. Some good tips though on where to start!

Aww dude what an awesome level! Wacky Weed Zone!! LMAO! XXD That's trippin' out maaaaaan! *SHOT* :D

Yeah if people could draw a couple of expressions and master them then you're already set to doing some serious cartoonin'. Heh..heh... Egoraptor and Boxer Hockey, their execution of cartoons/humour is just amazing. XD

This will be most helpful to those who indeed want to learn how to draw sonic or any other of his teamates' better =)

Nice, though I usually prefer game style Sonic characters, still it's never too bad to learn different styles. ^^ Helps with other stuff too. It was a really nice 'point out', gave me the idea on what I should try to improve next. :)

Out of all the characters in the Sonic universe, hands down, Knuckles is my favorite.
Hot-headed attitude...a fighter's spirit...and groovy looking hair.

...I'm wondering what's in store for Tails.
