Sonic the Hedgehog (Boom) by NextGrandcross Sonic the Hedgehog (Boom) by NextGrandcross
Who boy, I haven't done art in a LONG time, but hey, even I can't resist doing a small pic to celebrate the birth of a new Sonic Universe, both with a T.V. series and a game. I am most fascinated to see where they go with this new alternate universe.

I personally love the older looking designs, ranted Knuckles or should I say "Buffles" is gonna take some getting used to, but heck, it fits him, now his theme song actually makes sense when the say that he'd "rather flex his muscles".

Course the sports tape on all 4  characters is a bit overkill, but whatever.

Such a very outstanding picture of Sonic in 'Sonic Boom' styled! His pose and expression are so magnificent and phenomenal! =D
The outlines, the colouring, the shadings and highlights, and the blue background are all so overwhelming and inspirational! :thumbsup: :iconcoolnodplz:

Way past cool dude! There's a lot of haters out there that are hating on Sonic Boom based on only the new designs. It's nice to see that this new series can inspire a whole new branch of Sonic fan art. Which most of the haters don't understand or want to accept.

I definitely like the new design in your personal style better than it is in the game and TV Show! I don't know, the way Sonic's torso looks...yeah, it'll all take getting used to.

But you make it look good, as always! :D

Good to see you back in action, man! I'm impressed, your drawing style hasn't changed a bit since your last Sonic. I would love it if you did more stuff related to Sonic Boom, though I understand your reasons for not drawing Sonic much.

I've always been fond of the artstyles that add a little length and athleticism to these characters. I think they struck a really good balance for the most part. Sonic looks the part of the rough and tumble adventurer that you would expect to be. He's got a mean bounce to his step now. Lookin good.

Good work on this image too. can't have you going and getting rusty on us lol,

The Sports tape represents their athleticism and action. Athletes even wrap their shoes in sports tape.

Awesome! Turned out really nice!

I'm curious to see how they will treat the series as well.  I've seen some slightly buffer looking Knuckles adaptions before (look for the Sonic The Hedgehog OVA and a few other smaller anime adaptions) so buffer Knux wasn't too big of a shock.  I still like the old Knux design, but I'm fine with this one too actually looking more like he's the strong man of the group. I'm not really sure exactly what is up with /all/ four characters having the sports tape, I think it would have been best suited to Sonic around wrists and ankles, as he's a sprinter and fights, and I'm fine with it around Knux fists, as those are his prime weapon, and sports tape is designed to help prevent sprains, and maybe even a little around Amy's wrists...but it seems odd on Tails, and like they added /too/ much of it to the characters in general.

But from what we have seen, the character's core personalities seem to be intact, and that is the most important part of porting a character to a new series, that you keep what makes that character themselves.
