80s styled Sonic by SynDuo 80s styled Sonic by SynDuo

~80s styled Sonic~

I don't know why I drew Sonic, as I really am not a fan much of a fan, so here he is with a 80s themed background I guess my nostalgia of when I was a kid really bit me hard tonight. Sonic never really stood out to me after the death of the Dreamcast, and I really liked Sonic Adventure 1-2 for what they were, but what really was inspiring to me as a kid was 90s Sonic (Remembah the Ninties!?) Kidding I won't go into that dumb crud, but yeah I was really like "WOW Sonic CD Animation is totally rad" and I really did get inspired by seeing that.

There is no point to this ramble, I really did like Sonic for a time, but my love has been on and off, Sonic Generations was a whole lot of fun. I clocked a whole two hours of it on steam =P I'll pick it up soon again, but I just felt like drawing Sonic, probably cus I fell into a depressed mood again, eh nostalgia saves me.

Anyway Thanks guys, enjoy the Sanic, my favorite song will always be Chrome Gadget, what about you?

This looks amazing!

The details and style of the artwork definitely gives off that retro vibe.  Of course, the colors of the artwork looks fantastic.  :D

Wait, you mean 90's Sonic? He was made in 1991.

I try and make it a habit to watch the Sonic CD intro as often as possible because of its animated awesomeness...

And holy crap Chrome Gadget it one of my fav themes too my god...I also LOVE Wacky Workbench (good future) JP version...well all of the JP soundtrack on Sonic CD anyway...^^;

The fun IS infinite with Sega Enterprises...

Thanks, I kinda based the shoes off the Timeshoes he had in the cartoon :)

This is the only sonic that there ever should be :iconherotimeplz:
Love the crazy backdrop he's got going on, and the lil personal touches you gave to his design :>

I think my personal fav sonic song of all time is the bonus theme for Sonic 3 & Knuckles xD

Wrong bonus theme :,P (it's actually called 'special' stage but really they're both bonuses xD;; )…

This is a very adorable Sonic pic, and I love the design you gave his shoes!

I will agree that Sonic can be pretty on and off for me too.  Even though I have not experienced the kind of nostalgia you have (Cuz my first sonic game was Sonic Adventure 2), after seeing 90s Sonic, he will always hold a place in my heart!  After Sonic 06 I never payed attention to him, then I played Sonic Generations and I an amazing time playing it (especially all the classic stages like Green Hill Zone~)

I have a lot of favorite song (Sonic games have some of the best music!), but my current favorite is Stardust Speedway Bad Future from Sonic CD.  Gotta love Metal Sonic~
