And finally finished! I had to work on this between other animated projects and comics.
Anyway, hope you guys dig it! More animated stuff coming soon!
This is awesome
To the guy who reblogged the ol’ Maurice the Hedgehog post, who owns the blog url “en*****ma” (with an icon that depicts a pot leaf) and uses it to play a ‘black Knuckles’:
I think I know why your race is anonymous…
SONIC MAURICE THE HEDGEHOG
Sonic’s name is.. wait a minute, i can’t remember how it’s spelling.. uh, Oljville Maurice. Something like this.
I’d screencapped the wiki page but the image link’s died.
Sonic’s birth name in the Archie comics is Olgilvie Maurice Hedgehog, at least in Ken Pender’s notes. When Ian Flynn came on the comic he stated that Sonic legally changed his name to his nickname.
The funny animal genre evolved in the 1920s and 1930s, as blackface became less socially acceptable. Early black-and-white funny animals, including Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey Mouse (perhaps the most enduring of the kind), Foxy the Fox, Felix the Cat and Flip the Frog, maintained certain aspects of the blackface design, including (especially with the advent of sound film) heavy emphasis on song and dance routines.
WOW. This is really fucking interesting.
Relevant things to remember again because this is a Sonic blog and Sonic is directly based on this genre of character design.
I drew a little Sonic in a dragon ballerina costume.
three cocurrent hedgehogs, three interpretations of hedgehogs
probably none of them gonna get along
(boom, satam/archie, sega)
…Has anybody yet pointed out that the footage in his glasses isn’t flipped?
Mulp: Ha ha, who is that supposed to be on the side?
I grew up with a rounder Sonic that has shorter legs.
I’m still looking forward to Sonic Boom because I actually like some of the new designs, particularly Amy’s.
Also a friend of mine likes to call the classic Sonic as ‘Fat Sonic’.
Sonic the Egghog?
