So this is my sad Sonic tale.
Back in the 90’s my all time favorite character was Sonic, and as most of us did and do, I used to draw him a lot! Though I could never get his freakish head and spikes right.
One day at school we had an assignment for art class, so I chose to draw the best hero in the world, Sonic! We had references from magazines and all, but I…still…could not get… that stupid head right. One of my teachers came to me, stared at the drawing and pointed out that it looked nothing like the reference material, and asked me why I was doing that? Naturally I panicked in shame and tried to fix it on a rush.Time after time I tried and it just kept getting worse, and worse, and worse, to the point that the teacher asked me to draw something else. Time was running out and I was in the verge of tears because I could not draw my favourite hero right.
Class was over, I handed over the messy drawing, and the teacher got angry at me because I just kept trying to do the same stupid drawing. She then threw it to the paper bin, and told me that my drawing was not going to be on display with the rest of the class because it was a mess, and that I should stop trying to draw that stupid character.
And so I did.
I was so ashamed and scared of drawing him that I just stopped, and never ever tried again.
After 20 years, this is my second attempt.
I hope I got his head right this time
