I really wanted to learn more about character design. The idea of re-imagining the Sonic cast intrigued me because it seemed to present a lot of fun and interesting challenges.
Not only did I find that the franchise had a lot of cool, weird concepts to work with, like “ purple kitty pyro queen” or “evil shape shifter”, but there was the issue of creating a sense balance and diversity between the characters as a whole.
For reasons unknown to my self I kept adding to the project. Earlier drawings were more zany, illustrative and experimental and later versions were softer and three dimensional.
Essentially an evil shapeshifting creature with confusing motives. Also it can time travel apparently. It was a chance to exaggerate different feature without breaking the suspension of disbelief.
This was originally a Shadow redesign that somehow turned out to be a shambleing monstrosity. I liked it too much to give up.
