Following yesterday's announcement of "Sonic Boom
" the video game and the TV series, I got to look at the new looks for Sonic and his crew. It was pretty interesting (except for Knuckles) and I kind of liked the more "punk" version they gave Sonic with all the sports tape and the weird scarf. I was wondering what would happen if Shadow and Silver debuted in the cartoon series and they were given the same make-over that Sonic got.
Shadow's design was meant to be the same as Sonic's but to give him more of a "loner" look, hence the scarf flapping off his neck like that. His spikes are also styled the same as Sonic's (with split ends). As for Silver, the idea to give him pants was just something in the spur of the moment. He's not wearing as much sports tape like the others because I thought it would cover up the decals on his gloves. I was also going to make the quills on his head more like Sonic's as well (was going to do the same on the ones on his face, but later thought it was stupid). The background is a piece of concept art for the "Sonic Boom" franchise.
Anyway, I can't wait for Sonic Boom and I hope it'll be awesome. I already like the short clip they revealed for the show and Sonic still has his usual sass with Dr. Eggman (who I think looks AWKWARD too considering he seems more upper body built).
