I took a quick break from 3d art. I drew this based on my icon, but I drew most of it myself. What I wanted to do was see how close I could make it look to hand-drawn cel-shaded art, not the clean solid colors they do nowadays digitally.

Just like Sonic CD is considered the most underrated Sonic game, The Sonic Movie is probably Sonic's most underrated television debut (in fact it pretty much IS Sonic CD, they used the exact same style of animation). Though the movie was short, the plot was completely irrelevant, and the voice acting was terrible, this has to be one of my favorite 90s game-based movies ever. Why? Because unlike every other appearance Sonic's had on TV they actually got the important parts right, there was a sense of speed, and his attitude was likeable and not over the top. Knuckles had just the right amount of clumsiness, and Tails had just the right amount of annoyingness to make their personalities perfect. It's a must-see if you ever enjoyed Sonic CD.

Wow Sonic looks viscous like he's going to attack like a wild dog, even though he's a hedgehog. Good drawing though.

One of my favorite movies EVAR!

I actually liked the voice acting, I got used to its weirdness. I know, that makes me weird! But the animation was well done, potrayed Sonic's speed and personality really well.

And the best quote in the movie was:
"You might know everything I'm going to do! But that's not going to help you, since I know everything you're going to do! Strange isn't it?!"

Nice Job on the drawing by the way, I couldn't resist but favorite this picture..

What the :cheese: is he doing? Smiling for a school picture? Or was Tails' chili dog gas so extreme Sonic could barely hang on to the ground? Or is he acting like a dinosaur? Gosh, I have no idea what the :pokeball: he's doing. Hmmm....

when i was younger i watched the shit out of that movie.

I like the new art style for sonic, but the old is still the best, and you are totally right about knuckles, his personality changed when Sonic Adventure Came out.
