And one more edit from the same person:
Another Sonic edit! This time I wanted to test the "separated eyes" concept the movie design has, so I only applied small changes to the eyes shape and nose. What do you guys think?
She got retweeted by Sonic's creator:
Who doesn't seem happy with the design.
“Sonic’s design in the upcoming movie adaptation was leaked instead of being officially revealed. I think it’s part of the movie’s marketing strategy and they purposely leaked it, but it triggered a lot of negative reactions, which may also damage Sonic’s image as an IP so it’s not a good thing. Well, it’s also possible these pictures are fakes made by some fans, but I wish they’d at least give him a pair of gloves. It’s really shocking how Sonic’s hands themselves are white.”
In another tweet, he also stated how they could have done a better job when it comes to the proportions of Sonic’s body.
