The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Sonic the Hedgehog's head. First make four marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a lid.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the bottom of the circle as a guide to help you place Sonic the Hedgehog's facial features later. Draw a curved, vertical line near the left edge for another construction guide.
Step 3: Draw two small, triangular lines on top of the head as guides for the ears. Sonic doesn't have big ears, so don't draw these shapes too big.
Step 4: Below the head, make a small mark for the first part of the guide for Sonic's body. Connect the head to the mark using curved lines to create a long, U-shaped guide. Pay attention to how small and narrow the body is compared to the head.
Step 5: On the lower, right side of the body, draw a long, vertical line as a guide for the first leg. It should slope to the right a bit. At the end of the line, draw a small arc as a guide for the top part of Sonic the Hedgehog's foot. The length of the leg should be about the height of the head. Close off the foot guide with a line at the bottom.
