I’ve wanted to draw a Western-themed Sonic pic for a while. Deciding what to include was the tricky part.
Yesterday I had a pic idea flash through my head. I grabbed my mouse and scribbled it out.
But that wasn’t quite it, so I did this one next.
I liked that better. Whoever draws Sonic with a horse, anyway? And why would he need one when he runs so fast? That’s the hilarity of a western-themed Sonic game.
I got out my tablet and refined it a bit.
And with a sigh I went in search of some reference for a horse’s head at that angle.
I also looked up dusters. This makes my third pic this year of someone wearing a leather duster. They’re just so awesome!
It was getting late and I wanted something presentable, so I slapped some color on it and called it good.
But there’s a few things wrong with it, like Sonic’s arm and the positioning of his spikes. I’m going to refine it a little tonight. Also I want some kind of a bloom effect around the edges, like they’re standing in bright, hot sunlight. I’ll have to experiment.
