Get ready to do battle in October, because Sonic Channel's latest official Wallpaper artwork features none other than Dr. Eggman - and he's putting his dukes up in a new expressive pose!
The new art follows the same approach as other Sonic Wallpaper entries for 2023; to showcase well-known characters in cool and dynamic ways. It's not often we see Eggman in this kind of energetic stance, so this is a real treat for Eggheads everywhere.
Visit the Sonic Channel website for a full breakdown of the character artwork from Sonic Team designer Tomoko Hayane and for high-res downloads - or you can take the wallpapers included below for your chosen device.
Here's the quote from Hayane (provided by @Sonictrainer):
It's unusual for Dr. Eggman, a scientist, to be in a fighting pose...! No, or are they using the machines and robots they created to attack the enemy and watching with a look of satisfaction on their faces...? ? Either way, he has a fearless smile and a perfect pose, making him look really cool.
As you all know, Dr. Eggman is a big villain who has been plotting various evil schemes as Sonic's nemesis ever since his debut in the game Sonic the Hedgehog. There are times when he acts as a serious and dignified "evil genius scientist,'' but he also shows a slightly off-putting "angry old man'' side... Dr. I think this is because Eggman is not just a great villain, but also a great villain.
