You will not need any special tools or skills; all you will need is a pencil and a piece of paper. You may also want to use an eraser to correct any mistakes, and markers, colored pencils, or crayons to color your finished picture.
Intro: Start drawing Sonic the Hedgehog with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Draw an oval just beyond the end of each arm. Add two more spikes behind Sonic.
Using a curved line, enclose an oval shape across the torso. Draw a curved line beginning at the side of the face, extending to the shoulder. Using curved lines, draw two partial ovals above the previous curved line. Connect the partial ovals using a curved line.
Draw a small triangle within the near ear. Draw two curved, parallel lines extending outwards from the body. Draw another curved line, doubling back on itself, overlapping the body.
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.
Use two curved lines to form the left shoe, meeting in a point. Draw two more curved lines across the shoe.
Color Sonic the Hedgehog. Traditionally, he is shaded deep blue with tan face, stomach, arms and inner ear; red shoes; and white eyes, gloves, and socks.
Draw the legs extending downwards from the body, using two curved lines for each.
Draw the spikes on the back of Sonic’s head. Do this by drawing six curved lines, one long and then one short. Allow the lines to connect in sharp points.
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 1: To draw Sonic the Hedgehog, start by drawing a circle slightly to the left of the page. This will be the basic shape for Sonic the Hedgehog’s head.
Step 4: Draw in the guide for Sonic the Hedgehog’s eyes by drawing a wavy line that begins at the left ear, curves down toward the horizontal construction line, curves back up toward the right ear and finally dips down and rests on top of the horizontal construction line. The completed shape will resemble an S on its side.
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.
Draw Sonic’s ears, using two curved lines for each. Allow the lines to meet in sharp points, forming a triangular shape.
As you follow this simple drawing guide, you will notice that each step is accompanied by an illustration. In each picture, new lines added in the current step are shown in blue. Lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black. You may want to sketch lightly at first, as there will be need to erase some of your early lines in order to complete the picture.

Step 5: Draw Sonic the Hedgehog’s nose as a tilted oval placed near the point at which the two construction lines cross. Draw the nose so it extends beyond the edge of the main circle.
Extend a short, curved line downwards from the sock. Then, draw a long, curved line from the other side of the sock to the short line. Draw two more curved lines across the shoe.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal line that bend to the contour of the sphere. Draw the horizontal line low on the circle, and draw the vertical close to the left edge. These will be construction lines that will help you place Sonic the Hedgehog’s features later on.

Complete your Sonic drawing by erasing a small oval shaped area inside each eye and nose.
Draw the fingers using a series of connected, curved lines within the large ovals of the hands.
Step 3: Now draw two triangles on top of his head, which will be Sonic the Hedgehog’s ears. Draw the left triangle on the top left side of his head, and draw the right one inside his head.
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.
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.
