Nothing piques my interest in a video game series quite like hearing the Game Grumps make fun of it. While cleaning my apartment yesterday in preparation for my big move, I had the Sonic '06 and Sonic Boom playlists on in the background, two very funny playthroughs of the worst that Sonic's ever given the world. And I realized Sonic is one of those things that's been around forever and is hugely popular (and occasionally infamous) and I still know next to jack about it. So when my work was done, I dallied on TV Tropes for a bit to study up, and after a quick crash course, I got inspired to try my pencil at a few of the characters. This is a very peculiar art style, but I like how these guys came out. Now, whether or not I'll go on to play any Sonic games? That depends - I think I still have to sift through which ones are the good ones.

Sonic 2 and Sonic Colors are safe places to start.

You should at least check out the animated series. The SatAM version and Sonic X especially.

Nice take on the characters! I don't really know a lot about Game Grumps, but I've heard good things (really need to catch up on some stuff).

Hey, what are your thoughts on that Sonic movie in the works? The one with Jim Carrey as Robotnik and Ben Schwartz as Sonic?

I'm iffy about it being a live action hybrid (did '06 teach us nothing?), but I'll wait and see how it goes. I'm a little more optimistic for the animated Super Mario Bros. movie coming from Universal, since I know how hard Nintendo works to get it right. Sega's track record is slightly less even.

I'm curious about that Mario movie, too. I like Ben Schwartz's voice-acting, though, so I think he'd be a good fit for Sonic (has the same kind of cocky smart-aleck vibe). Kinda wish they'd get Jaleel White back, though, for nostalgic purposes ;)

My choices for good Sonic games are 1, 2, 3, Sonic and Knuckles, and Sonic CD.

Beyond that, I don't have much experience with them.

These are the most expressive renditions of these characters I think I've ever seen; especially Tails. Well done!

Get Sonic Generations if you want both a bit of a recap on the highlights of the Sonic games -and- a choice of 2D sidescrolling gameplay or modern 3D Sonic.

I also had a lot of fun with Sonic CD back in the day.

The classic series is highly recommended! Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles, CD, and Mania.

Seconded. Sonic is much better in 2D than in 3D.

Good ones? Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Knuckles in one of its many iterations, Sonic 1 if you want to see where the franchise took off, maybe the Sonic Adventure games, but they've not aged particularly well, maybe Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine if you want a reskinned Puyo Puyo with Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog slapped all over it, oh, and Sonic CD, can't forget Sonic CD.

The classic-era Sonic games are the ones you gotta go to first. If you want to get started on Sonic games, play those. 1, 2, 3&K, along with Mania.

Depends on your taste, really. :shrug: I have a feeling you'd really like the Classic-era games :D

I'd love to see you draw Sonic characters underwater.
