    That lovable little fox is back.

    The reference model shown in some pics is by a man named Chris Senn, who apparently worked on a Sonic game that never made it to completion; and released some of his old 3D resources from which sprites would be rendered.

    6. I have modified his UV-map to support four different eyes. I think the angry ones need to be sharper, though.

    If anybody dares ask me to make any other Sonic-related character (especially Knuckles), they will be... Ignored at best, subjected to a massive swear-fest at worst.

    Nice. Man, that looks a lot like Tails in Sonic R.

    Sonic totally deserves to be in SSBB, because he's a rival company's answer to Nintendo's Mario. Similarly, I think Capcom's Megaman should have made it into SSBB.

    What it is is that his eyes stop at the side and then go straight down, as opposed to coming to a peak somewhere in the middle (of the eye) and then curving back down.

    I like the tail movements in the animation.

    You should make him run instead of walk for a change.

    He never actually runs; he instead goes on the tips of his toes and uses his tails as a fan (like a hovercraft). That will be his walk fast animation.

    Besides, I always start off with a walk sequence. Why change the habit of a lifetime? :p

    You improved your walk animation, still a bit robot like though.
    Also it needs bigger head.

    Robotic because his head doesn't move, nor his hips (though that's more due to his strange pelvic structure than my dislike of said motion; it's really not worth putting it in without giving him a properly defined body).

    In fact, everything is a lot smoother in Milkshape and beyond; a 24fps GIF doesn't seem to capture him all that well.

    Right now the two parts of the leg are disconnected and when it moves you can see the obvious hole. Here's an example of a leg pivoting around

    Also, you could snap the two vertices in the back together, but that wouldn't achieve the boot effect

    Anyway, +rep

    Alrighty:

    1) The texture looks MS paint, i'm sad to say. Seriously, the texture inside the modelling program looks better than the final one. It's so flat... and boring... but that would be forgivable if:

    2) Tails didn't suck and Knuckles wasn't 50 times more awesome.

    3) Make Knuckles now pl0x.

    The skin is pixely in the given image, but I have no way of telling how that would turn out during gameplay, because my D drive is too full to run anything without my graphics card freaking out. And no, I don't understand how that works.

    I really think that you should add a "helicopter" animation like in Sonic 3, where Tails would jump to high and use his ears as a helicoptor to fly down or up.

    And for spells you should make him pull out his little cannon thing that he has in Sonic Battle.

    I won't ask for you to make any other Sonic model.

    Just don't make Rouge. Anthropomorphic bats with huge breasts are creepy.

    If you think Rouge has large breasts, you're not very familiar with Japan and its many terrible entertainment medias.
