How to draw sonic step by step

In this guide on how to draw Sonic, I decided to use a simplified version of this character. I do this so that the young artist does not face difficulties in the process of sketching.

But of course, you can give Sonic a look more similar to the original. To do this, simply make the torso a little larger and the head a little smaller.

Also, to make your Sonic drawing look more like the prototype from the game, make the legs and arms a little longer and thinner.

But as you can see, we are creating a more simplified version of this famous character here. The style in which we will be working today is called chibi.
