Sonics eyes always kinda freaked me out. One "eyeball" with two pupils.

You actually managed to get the general perspective of his top spine to make sense through 3D modeling alone. Along with that, he just looks great!

God.... Since I was 4 years old... I grew up on Classic Sonic and Mario, and since I got my hands on Mario 64, I wanted more than anything for a good 3d Sonic game in the style of why I love the classic games

Please don't take this as hate for the 3d Sonic that does exist. I think it has it's own charm and I will always love the cheesy rock and roll awesomeness that is Modern Sonic, but the gameplay has never appealed to me. It's just not the Sonic I grew up on. Respect anyone who grew up on Modern Sonic or just loves it, it's just not my Sonic.

To OP: Love this, it's beautiful. I see someone is a fan of the OVA, and I couldn't agree more.

I recommend checking out the fangame Sonic GT because it’s a pure translation 2D Sonic level design in 3D. I’d love for the official Team to take inspiration from it.

Man if you worked for the Sonic movie, it would actually be good.

I'd have casted Samuel L Jackson as Sonic tho

Always wondered how something so skinny could run so fast. I guess foot size is all that matters.

Cuts through the air maybe

Hold on. Let me get a brown marker so I can "fix" it.

In all seriousness though, looks good 🙂

Nice work.

My god you have his dimensions perfect! He honestly looks like the most HD version of Sonic 3 Sonic you can get.

21 : Anonymous2021/05/18 16:53 ID: gyl7j44

This is by far the best that Sonic has ever looked in 3D.

22 : Anonymous2021/05/18 16:57 ID: gyl84so

Sega pls. Sonic Adventure 3? Or even 2 DX on modern platforms? Hopefully with a camera that doesn't make me want to start World War 3.

This looks incredible. Could i use this as my xbox gamer pic?

Genesis came out in ‘89, was Sonic that much later?

Edit: June 23, 1991. Well I’ll be.

Reminds me of the Sonic CD intro

This design and model gives me life, look forward to seeing more!

Looks great. Never played a Sonic game, even as a child of the 90s. What one should I start with now?

I want to see a 30 year old sleep deprived Sonic holding a baby

Well let me add tribute to Sonic. You should grab yourself a snack and a glass of orange juice.

not the type of tribute i was expecting

How did you do the figure 8 legs? Were they a plane with texture/alpha mask or did you actually model it?

36 : Anonymous2021/05/18 19:22 ID: gyltmvr

turning 30... but still no more than 40 inches high...

Awesome, I kinda hope they go back to the more cutesy design over the current

Looks great!!! I wonder if Sega is doing anything for Sonic's 30th?

44 : Anonymous2021/05/18 23:02 ID: gymo7wv

Apparently they’re not, just merch or something

45 : Anonymous2021/05/18 23:35 ID: gyms9h8

Memory (used to play around with the sprite sheets as a kid) and a few inspirations here and there like the sonic CD intro. The proportions are very similar to the animations you’re talking about though, good eye

46 : Anonymous2021/05/18 23:53 ID: gymui60

Either way, it looks great!
