How To Draw Sonic The Hedgehog

With the release of the recent Sonic The Hedgehog movie, more people are learning about this cool blue hero. 

Let’s give it a try and see if we can draw Sonic The Hedgehog together!

He’s a bit more difficult than other characters we draw; mainly his arms and hands can be a bit of a challenge.

Don’t worry if you make a mistake. Keep trying and you’ll learn how to draw Sonic The Hedgehog in no time.

Did You Know?
Sonic The Hedgehog first came out in 1991 (Almost 30 years ago, wow!)

Sonic’s favorite food is a chili dog.

Sonic can run at the speed of sound (really, really fast!)

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • The hands and arms can be tricky. Take it slow and start with the thumb to help space and size the hand.

Let’s Draw Sonic The Hedgehog  – Step By Step

How To Draw Sonic The Hedgehog Step 1
Step 1: Follow the arrows from the front of the face. Continue around until you reach the bottom hair spike.

For the last line, you can start from the front of the face and bring it back to connect to the last hair spike.

Step 2: Draw the nose. It’s black so it might help you if you color it in now. 

You can try the eye outlines next.

Follow the arrows up and down to create the curves.

Try and end the line around the same height as the top of nose. Finish off with the mouth outline.

Note: If it helps, you can try doing the mouth outline first instead of trying to line the eyes with the nose height.
