Realistic Sonic Movie Character Design Attempt
Finished my own realistic design take on the Sonic character.
We all know Sonic, an anthropomorphic hedgehog, the iconic blue character that marked a generation. 

In short, here are some difficult design decision I had to face when I took this challenge upon my self. 
Original Sonic is heavily stylized character. As such, if you stayed true to the form, you could only do so much with it in terms of movie genres. 
I can see a realistically rendered original Sonic, true to it's form in a family adventure fantasy, or even comedic genre. 

But it would not work well in a serious, dark sci fi super hero thriller. 
And so, that was my target.  To try and make Sonic design that might hold up in those type of movies. 

For that reason, I had to move away from the original iconic cartoony Sonic and push it more towards humanoid side with regards to anatomy and certain details.

Regarding Sonic height, I like versions of Sonic where he was portrayed taller, putting my design at around 1. 55 meters height or thereabouts. 

Here's a quick rundown on some of the more significant changes and design decisions:

**Shoes are completely redesigned and I shaped wording "Sonic" into the side of the sole.
**Just like the original Sonic, my version has gloves which are equipped with composit padding to help Sonic avoid injuries as he's blasting around ar supersonic speeds. Movie version Sonic might be impervious to road rash, mine is not. 

**This Sonic has suit. I dont think naked furry Sonic works so well in realistic environment that I envisioned it for.
Suit is some type of tech kevlar fabric padded with rubber composit coat. Inner thigh section has hexa cells that generate electricity and magnetic properties through friction as Sonic moves and runs, enabling Sonic to run on some vertical surfaces.

The ribbed suit design is not done by chance. It's inspired by "Sega" logo.

Anyway, these are some details I wanted to point out... Personally, I'm pleased how it turned out.
Final composition is inspired with wonderful art done by Ry-Spirit, here on D.A. 

If you don't like this work and you wish to voice your feelings, it's ok, but if you can't take some time and elaborate on your stance and maybe even offer some constructive criticism please refrain from dropping short hating comments cos you may end up blocked.

Sonic concept
Quick photoshop concept for the Sonic character in the wake of Sonic movie trailer. 
Background and shoes are photographic elements, everything else painted.
Time Traveler Who Saved Chicken From Extinction
As any time traveling story. 
This one is filled with plot holes, over the top premises and conundrums. 
Also, it's brimming with chickens and dinosaurs. 
Just a fun little concept piece I put together.
Some higher res crops here:…
Real Ninja Turtle
Had some fun with the latest Zbrush update and its NPR filters. 
It has loads of potential for anyone interested in making posters, t shirt designs , comic book art and more. 
If you haven't already, give it a go. 
This is the original ninja render:…
Undoer of Things
Concept I made in photoshop. 
I like horror genre and I like to think about some of these subjects from time to time. 
The idea behind this concept is, what if "God" is not at all what humanity imagines? 
What if God and Satan are one? 
If it for some reason decides to show up here on Earth we're all kinda f@$ed, praying or not.
Couple months ago I decided I want to improve my skills regarding rendering, environments and photogrammetry assets. I decided I want to put 3ds Max MR behind me and try something new. That's where Corona renderer comes in.
I started getting nice results after only one or two hours in it. I love it. Then I dived into Megascans and realized the potential photo scanned assets and pbr materials have.
On the link bellow you can see some test renders.

Your paleoart blew me away when I saw it, but I don't think I can really express myself here, since you must probably receive comments like these every day.

Thanks! It's always nice to hear from people. Whether if they simply enjoyed my stuff or it got them inspired to do something similar themselves. 
So yeah, thanks for kind words! Hope to keep bringing new imagery in the time that follows.

Your dinosaurs are so life-like. What program do you use to sculpt them? What do you use to render? Your art is amazing and beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
