How To Draw Tails From Sonic

Aspiring artists don’t have to be intimidated by drawing Sonic’s famous tails any more! With just a few basics of art and a bit of practice, anyone can let their creativity soar and establish a new love of drawing. It doesn’t take long, I promise! Are you ready to create tails that will make Sonic proud? Here’s how…

Gather Your Supplies

Gather your supplies before you start your drawing. Choose a nice sketchbook, some quality pencils and a kneaded eraser. Some colored pencils or markers are great, too. Don’t forget to grab a few reference pictures or videos to help you as you draw.

Measure Up

Take a moment to educate yourself about Sonic’s tails. Look around online and in Sonic books to understand the exact length and proportion Sonic’s tails should be. Drawing the tails in an accurate size is essential to make sure your artwork looks more like Sonic than like a hedgehog.

Start Drawing

When you’re ready to get started, lightly sketch the tails of Sonic on your paper. Focus on the fluffiest part of the tails – at the end – and work your way back. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect right away. It can be edited easily!

Add the Details

Once your outline is done, take your time to add details. Don’t forget to add some fur to the tails. Tiny lines or small dots do the trick! Don’t overdo it – make sure you leave some negative space!

Final Touches

Now is the time to add your favorite colors and any highlights or shadows. You can also try adding in some stars or sparkles for a bit of whimsy. Seriously, have fun with it!

Practice Makes Perfect

The more you practice, the more you’ll understand your own style. Play with brushes and strokes and try different textures until you create something that you’re happy with. There’s nothing like the feeling of creating something unique!

Correct Mistakes

Do you ever have to fix a mistake? No problem! A kneaded eraser is your best friend. Knead it until it’s soft, then gently erase what you need. It’s so much easier than using an eraser that will just tear the paper. Is your Sonic looking perfect?

Have Fun!

Drawing Sonic’s tails should be a blast! Make sure you really enjoy the process, even if it’s a bit challenging at first. Remember, practice makes perfect, and with a little bit of patience, your tails are sure to be a hit!
