Concept Art: The Sonic that Could Have Been


[dropcap size=small]W[/dropcap]e here at Geek Outpost either have no love, or too much love for Sonic the Hedgehog.


I say that because a while ago, concept art was revealed by artists Craig Harris and Nicolas P. Villarreal of what Sonic and the gang might have looked like in their latest release, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

The concept art first surfaced a month ago and since then, our team has been pretty lackadaisical about sharing it. Perhaps out of respect for the iconic character (some of the art is pretty dopey), or perhaps due to a notion that maybe audiences just don’t care about a 23 year old video game character anymore. Either way, the assignment to bring you the character sketches has been passed around more than a cheap hooker or a “funny cigarette” at a backyard kickback.

But fear not, loyal reader. I, Bobby of Geek Outpost, out of loyalty to you, our audience– now bring you the Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric character concept art. Enjoy, or don’t.

What do you think of Sonic’s potential look? Would you have liked to see any of these concepts worked into the final game? Let us know below!

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is available now for Wii U.
