The Sonic fanbase can be a creative lot. There’s a wealth of content to be discovered from talented fans who create wonderful things. You’ll find pieces of stunning fan art, creative original animated series and ambitious fangames which rival the quality of even some of Sonic Team’s best. Games like Sonic: After The Sequel come to mind, with a wealth of unique well designed zones, an incredible original soundtrack and tons of creative new gimmicks. It’s hard to think of many other fanbases which match the unrivalled passion of Sonic’s.
But let’s forget about that. Let’s talk about memes!
It’s the new reason we all love Sonic! At least, Sonic’s twitter. Sanic has become an internet icon for the ages, and everyone is finding new ways to depict everyone’s favourite hedgehog in new, colourful and er… expressive, ways. Which is why you could imagine the delight on my face when I discovered SSMB’s newest thread – “Draw Sonics Badly”.
Started by long time member Diogenes, “Draw Sonics Badly” is a simple concept. Using whatever art skills you have, draw horrific interpretations of various Sonic characters. Of course, the opening week’s theme was none other than the titular hedgehog himself. So let’s look at 11 of the best!
