How to Draw Sonic the Hedgehog
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Sonic the Hedgehog from the Sega video games. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Sonic the Hedgehog with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Sonic the Hedgehog, start by drawing a circle slightly to the left of the page. This will be the basic shape for Sonic the Hedgehog's head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal line that bend to the contour of the sphere. Draw the horizontal line low on the circle, and draw the vertical close to the left edge. These will be construction lines that will help you place Sonic the Hedgehog's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw two triangles on top of his head, which will be Sonic the Hedgehog's ears. Draw the left triangle on the top left side of his head, and draw the right one inside his head.
Step 4: Draw in the guide for Sonic the Hedgehog's eyes by drawing a wavy line that begins at the left ear, curves down toward the horizontal construction line, curves back up toward the right ear and finally dips down and rests on top of the horizontal construction line. The completed shape will resemble an S on its side.
Step 5: Draw Sonic the Hedgehog's nose as a tilted oval placed near the point at which the two construction lines cross. Draw the nose so it extends beyond the edge of the main circle.
