Sonic the Hedgehog Tutorial Video
Now fans of this video game character have an easy tutorial to help them how to draw Sonic the Hedgehog. His cool cartoon eyes, hairline and clothes are all important to his very unique cartoon look. None of those features are hard to draw by themselves, but it helps to a have guide to put them all in the right places. Especially when you are drawing someone who never seems to stop moving!
Sonic the Hedgehog is the title character and the star of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, animations, and other media. He is a blue hedgehog who can run at supersonic speeds and curl into a ball, primarily to attack enemies and collect gold rings.
Getting Started with Drawing Guides
The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point. You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, in both horizontal and vertical directions. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.
Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate. So does that mean students need to get out a ruler to draw a big fat line down the center of their paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
