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.
I’d imagine it keeps up with Sonic by spin dashing while tearing up the environment as it rolls. I forfeited aerodynamic design and speed for a hulking strength and heightened senses. It is near impossible to leave its detection. One of those baddies you know you can keep away from for now, but they will find and get you eventually.
