Inner Kid - Sonic and Tails by hotcheeto89 Inner Kid - Sonic and Tails by hotcheeto89
Wow, it's seems like ages since I last submitted something. But I've been quite productive lately with my work...and quite lazy with submitting stuff to dA and Tumblr.

Here's a piece I started back in late July and only just finished recently (meaning touch-ups and solid color background). A theme I had in mind at the time was the concept of "inner child," that youthful child-like spirit we still possess as we grow older, a nostalgic longing and liking of things from our childhood, as well as things that bring out the kid within us.

So here I am, wearing a (fictional) Sonic hoodie, holding the Tails plushie I've had since I was five. Sonic the Hedgehog was a character I grew up with, mainly through the comics and the cartoon shows before I actually played the games. Even though I became a Nintendo nerd later on, Sonic has always stuck with me, one way or another. I still have a storage tub full of Sonic comics - which I like to pull out and read once in a while - and my old Sonic and Tails plushies are sitting on top of my couch in my apartment.

The hoodie here reminds me of the Sonic costume I wore for Halloween when I was five (which I also still have). I guess this is the reason that I put this piece up close to Halloween.

Have a Happy Halloween, everyone! :pumpkin:

Ah~ Nostalgia is a lovely thing, though it usually leads me to being sad later missing those years. Nice concept~! :meow:
