Sonic redesign- Metal Sonic by Nerfuffle Sonic redesign- Metal Sonic by Nerfuffle
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.

Metal Sonic

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.

Its like if Shockwave, The terminator, and Megaman were fused into one badass machine...
Is he sentient?
Does it have any hidden gadgets?
CAN IT SPEAK?

Eh I like it but... His red eyes are iconic.  Remove the spirals and give him his classic eyes and we're on a winner :D

I'm not gonna lie: This is pretty freakin' awesome. I think having a Counterpart that is more beastly and savage than similar and mirroring really works in this way.

I kind of want to draw this guy now. C:

YUP.

THIS IS IT.

THIS IS AWESOME.

This looks like if Eggman really did create a double of Sonic but wanted it to be MEANER, BADDER, and an all out MONSTER as compared to the heroic hedgehog. I can see this thing blazing through the forest at top speeds just PLOWING through trees and decimating ANYTHING that gets in its way until it reaches Sonic.

And the sheer size of it compared to Sonic itself? Yeah, it is a MONSTER.
