Rad Red by NextGrandcross Rad Red by NextGrandcross
Shut Up!

It's everyone's favorite grouchy, angry, grape eating, Austrailian egg-laying mammal knucklehead. Don't touch his Emerald!

Tips:

- Knuckles has a very odd shaped head, it's kinda like an oval.

- Has an extended snout like Tails does, plus note that his noes his pointy.

- In the STC universe, the moon symbol on Knux's chest is an necklace thingy.

- Knuckles has a total of 7 Spikes (3 on each side and one directly in back). Note that his dreads are indeed spines. (so yeah, if you touch them it might hurt you). Look up a real echidna.

- I really don't know how many fingers Knux's has under his gloves, but it's best to go with the usual four for the time being, course this is up to you.

If you never seen an Echidna before, here ya go. [link]

Yes folks, Echidna's lay eggs, their the only mammal besides the Platypus to lay eggs.

Rad Red indeed! Great drawing of Sonic's Friendly nemesis/rival! I think he has 5 fingers and the spikes aren't just part of his gloves, their actually part of him, part of the way his egg was exposed to Chaos Emerald energy before he was even born! Thanks for the Echidna info and link!

Echidnas may lay eggs, but I don't think the males do(obviously) 
But this drawing is awesome! 8D

Hey Dante!

I just watched an episode of Sonic X, and it showed me something else you may be interested in putting into your list of tips. When Knuckles battled Yellow Zelkova, he successfully destroyed Zelkova's armor, but the spikes on his glove shattered in the process! Next time we see Knuckles, he's holding his hand while screaming in pain! I think that means the spikes are part of his hands too!

This one i like the most :) solid shading and pose. I think what really shocked me about echidnas was a mention in a games magazine about real life woodland creatures compared to sonic characters. It said echidnas had 4 penises rather than what wiki said about their genitalia! :stare:

I could swear the bloke who wrote that was thinking of something else :iconblankstareplz:

hey man, thanks for all the tips on drawing these characters, their quite helpful.

I find Knux to be the easiest to draw of them all, his head shape allows for a little more freedom of expression.

I should probably be mentioned that although Knuckles is an Echidna, he is not technically an egg laying mammal.

Been a long time since I've seen Knuckles drawn how I remember him looking XD I'm a big fan of the first games. I used to play them over and over again, and Knuckles was always my favorite. Was glad to see this around while browsing DA, you gave him a really neat shiny look too!

Yes, Knuckie has an odd shaped head, but I've perfected drawing it a long time ago. XD
