Wow it has been years since the last time i drew sonic! I literally had little flashbacks of when i use to draw him as a kid while i was drawing him , was kinda fun xD I felt like drawing him after watching the Sonic Mania trailer a while ago , i understand the trailer has been out there for a while now but my first time watching it was during the switch reveal last month and yeah i finally decided to give it a shot ^^

Sonic The Hedgehog (c) Sega

This design for Sonic will never be trumped in my humble opinion, the "Classic Sonic". It IS his best design. The short stature does not work against Sonic, instead it works in his favor. Despite his diminutive size, he is cocky, ostentatious (big word alert), confident, and he has the ability to back up his talk. It's representative of the era Sonic was created in. The character's simplicity is an excellent paradox against how dynamic and interesting he really is. There isn't a need to overcomplicate Sonic's design, fill it with unneeded changes and details, what he does and how he does it makes up for it in spades. His classic design is a classic, and taking advantage of nostalgia is never a bad idea when done correctly. I think SEGA may have dropped the ball with their more recent redesigns (it's too late to change it, so I'm not saying or would argue they should).

For me it wasn't a question of modern vs classic (well, in an unbiased since. I've never played a Sonic game before and try to believe I have this ability to be impartial in the matter). Just in stark contrast and comparing the design and subsequent personalities of modern and classic side by side, I conclude that the original version is just easier to invest in. There aren't as many barriers to like the character (and by barriers I kind of mean extenuating circumstances such as canon or prior history needed to be known).

The old adage goes that at their heart the best video game makers are toy makers. And they craft a product that is loved by so many because in principle what makes their creation lovable is its simplicity and ability to be interpreted into any medium, video game, animation, movie, comic, or the imagination. That adaptability and versatility I feel the classic iteration of Sonic has a better ability to do.

Oh i would say some changes are needed sometimes , maybe to show progress or evolution , but with all the redesigns made to Sonic , i can kinda understand why lots of people like the classic one better , and yeah it looks more Charismatic and cheerfeul than the new ones hehe.
