Knuckles' Master Emerald by ZekukN Knuckles' Master Emerald by ZekukN
Hello, its been a while since ive done any drawings. So what better way to kick off the new year than to draw my favorite character in the Sonic series. I wanted to do more of a classic, younger version of the echidna. I also wanted to present a more realistic and restored environment of the shrine. The major challenge was getting that emerald to look right. Its pretty funny how this thing travels, taking different shapes and sizes and appearing in different locations. Geez Knuckles why cant you keep that thing on a leash lol?

Anyways wishing you all a late Happy New Year!!!!

~Knuckles The Echidna is the tritagonist in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He was born on Angel Island and is considered to be one of the last survivors of his race. Swearing solemnly to the daily protection of the mystical Master Emerald of his predecessors which is the main power source of the island. His first appearance was in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 where he was rival and a troublemaker to Sonic and Tails. ~

Great art! And your description made me laugh for you're right; how does that emerald change size and shape so much? Maybe that's why it breaks so easily... :D
