Raf Grassetti, the art director behind 2018’s endlessly-beloved God of War, recently posted drawings of Knuckles and Tails in the style of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie to his portfolio of awesome, realistic pictures of assorted video game icons. The drawings are well-timed amidst waves of positive reactions to Sonic the Hedgehog, coming right on the heels of one of the writers stating that they want to work with Knuckles in a sequel. I recommend showing some support and checking out the full gallery on his Instagram page, which is loaded with detailed depictions of figures from Nintendo series such as Star Fox and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you just want to see Knuckles and Tails, keep scrolling.
These drawings are fantastic–they immediately make you dream about a Sonic the Hedgehog sequel that brings the whole gang together. Raf Grassetti said that he was probably finished up with Sonic characters after putting the finishing touches on Tails, but I’m hoping that he dives back in sooner or later and shows us his takes on other characters, such as Amy Rose or Shadow. Really, though, so long as he keeps drawing anything, I’ll be happy.
How do you like these drawings of Knuckles and Tails? Do you think they fit the movie’s style?
