In this drawing tutorial, I will show you how to draw Sonic – the main character of the popular series of games and the mascot of Sega.
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.

How to Draw Sonic
- Sketch out the outlines of the head.
Try to repeat as accurately as possible the outlines of Sonic’s unusual head.
- Draw the ears.
The ears look like pointed triangles.
- Draw the torso and legs.
Note that this part of the body is significantly smaller than the head.
- Draw the arms.
After drawing the arms, sketch out the patterns on Sonic’s chest and legs.
- Detail the drawing.
Draw patterns at the bottom of the head and on the arms.
- Draw the eyes of Sonic.
The outlines of the eyes look like a large and flowing “M”.
- Detail the face.
Draw Sonic’s pupils, nose, and smiling mouth.
- Erase the guidelines.
After getting rid of the auxiliary lines, trace Sonic to make him more cartoonish.
- Color Sonic.
Use blue, green, beige, red, and gray. Leave white highlights in the eyes.
