01- Young Sonic by Swirlything 01- Young Sonic by Swirlything
Coloured this [link] lineart from a while back as a bit of Corel Painter practice.
I love this program :D

...I think I might do a series of these simple little pics of anthro-ized Sonic chars.
Anyway, this one's Fleetway Sonic, age 14, before getting his speed etc... read the description on the lineart for more detail. :p
And er... The colouring might look a bit dark. This was coloured on a laptop whose monitor doesn't like me. <.<

The artist has answered this question already in the comments below.

It's from the British Sonic the Comic continuity; Sonic originally had brown eyes but his contact with the Chaos entity in their SA1 adaptation turned his eyes green.

I made his ears larger than normal on purpose- he's meant to look like an awkward teenager in a growth spurt. He needs to grow into them! XD

He's actually meant to be an European Hedgehog. :)

This is the version of Sonic from STC, the british Sonic comic. Up until their adaptation of Sonic Adventure, Sonic had brown/black eyes. They explained the change to green by saying contact with Perfect Chaos altered him.

So at this age his eyes would be brown.

Wow... the British comics are weird...
I have NEVER heard in my 15 years of life of Sonic EVER being blue...
Sorry, but I always thought he was always blue.
Oh well, every Sonic fan is completely different.
Reply
:iconswirlything:
Swirlything Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011
Well, in the American comics he was always blue and the games don't give any backstory at all.

The british comics gave Sonic a kind of superhero origin story,where he was an ordinary brown hedgehog until he broke the sound barrier for the first time.

Hm... that sounds really alien to me.
Oh well, if that's how you think it. Every Sonic fan is completely different, which is why SEGA sometimes can't make a compromise.

Wow, I'm really liking your young brown Sonic here. And I *really* like the anthro appearance. Very well executed!

LOL, this looks like Sonic is meeting Ovi Kintobor/ Ivo Robotnik for the first time. His expression reads, "Just who the @#$% are you?" :XD:

Arrogant little hedgehog... :D

Yep. Again, this is based on the British Sonic comic, where Sonic was not born with his speed etc. He started life with ordinary brown colouring and did not turn blue until he broke the sound barrier for the first time.
