Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Knuckles the Echidna from Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the right side of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Knuckles' head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical line should be close to the right side, and the horizontal line should be closer to the bottom. Give these lines a slight bend to contour to the shape of the circle.
Step 3: To draw a guide for Knuckles' eyes, draw an angled line sitting on top of the horizontal construction line. The line starts on the left side of the circle and goes up, then it dips down to where the construction lines intersect and ends on the right edge of the circle.
Step 4: Outside of the circle and below the horizontal construction line, draw a small upside-down triangle as a guide for Knuckles' nose.
Step 5: On the lower left side of a circle, draw a shape similar to a backward letter D as a guide for Knuckles' mouth.
