Shadow the Hedgehog (redesign)
Shadow redesign because why not.
Kind of a random warm-up sketch I did yesterday. Sort of started out as a “Sonic Boom” styled Shadow, but then I stumbled onto an old, unfinished comic script I tried writing a couple years ago and thought about Shadow as a wanderer. Someone who just never settled down, instead of joining GUN. I think he’s off doing the “hero” thing in his own way. That said, despite his tough guy act, he still randomly shows up at Rouge’s to crash and recharge and get information when he needs it.
Changed up his standard gear by giving him a pair of high tech goggles and a cloak/cape. Also changed his shoes to match his “Riders” look because I sorta dug those shoes. And the wraps are meant to give that sort of “wanderer” look and also tighten up his gloves and shoes a bit since he disappears for weeks at a time.
