The first Sonic the Hedgehog video game was released by Sega in 1991. Sonic’s first television cartoon series, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, aired in 1993. In the years since, he has become one of the world’s most popular video game and cartoon characters, with over 80 million video game cartridges in circulation.
Sonic is an anthropomorphic hedgehog, a small mammal protected by sharp quills. As his name implies, he is able to run at high speeds and fold himself into a rolling, spiky ball. He is a heroic character who in various story lines collects rings and overcomes impossible terrain, rescues his friends, or drives imaginative race cars.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Sonic the Hedgehog
Draw Sonic’s ears, using two curved lines for each. Allow the lines to meet in sharp points, forming a triangular shape.
Draw the rest of the hand between the arm and each oval. The left hand will consist of two curved lines forming enclosed shapes. Note the “thumbs up” of the left hand. The right hand consists of a small oval overlapping the larger oval, and a curved line enclosing a partial oval shape.
Draw socks at the bottoms of the legs. Begin by connecting the leg lines using a curved line. Then, use a series of three curved lines of various sizes to enclose the shape of the socks.
Use two curved lines to form the left shoe, meeting in a point. Draw two more curved lines across the shoe.
Draw and shade a small oval within each of the partial ovals. Draw a curved line above each eye. Draw and shade another oval to form the nose. Draw a curved line to form the mouth, with a smaller curved line at its upper end. Draw two short, curved lines meeting in a point to form the tail.
