How I Draw Hedgehog Spikes by Feniiku How I Draw Hedgehog Spikes by Feniiku
As there was pretty much a unanimous result on that poll, here's my very rough guide to drawing Sonic style spikes.

I tried to cover the basics, but you're gonna have to work a little to get other angles as I couldn't figure out how to describe them. If you need more help, feel free to ask and I'll try my best to answer ^_^;

Hope this helps a little anyway!

Just remember, I tend to cheat when I draw them. A lot. Might show you that sometime ;)

Edit: made a quick adjustment to the Super Sonic note: that center bottom spike is down to interpretation, sometimes in game you see it down, which is how I draw it, but usually it can be seen up, so do it how you want :)

OMG THIS IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED!!. I LOVE Sonic the Hedgehog but the one thing I hated to draw was his spikes/quills >_< . They never came out the way I wanted them too so I needed a tutorial asap. Then I found this one and I'm like "OMG I NEEDED THIS!! THANK YOU JESUS *O*" But in all seriousness, this is a really helpful tutorial, so thank you for making this for those that have trouble with the spikes. This will defiantly help me (Considering that I'm making a manga with Sonic in it for God's sake).

Interesting. I always drew (and I guess still draw, when I actually bother to do it!) Sonic's spikes top-down. Hmm...

Thankies, this is very useful. I struggled with Shadow's spikes in the past (deviation removed YEARS ago cause it sucked..)

Hmm, I think my wording was off, lol. I start from bottom up because I don't wanna have the wrong spike on the outside and I tend to do that if I go the other way XD;

Shadow's spikes are a strange shape, they all bend weird XD

Where was this tutorial when I was just learning how do draw in Sonic-style....XP jk. This seems consistant to what I've observed as well (never really noticed that bit about Super-Sonic's lower-middle quill staying downward-pointing though...but then...I haven't really experienced Super-Sonic in-game that much...and when I did, I was focusing more on not getting pwned by Perfect Chaos. XP)

XD probably in someone else's head because I didn't have much confidence drawing these damn spikes until the past couple of years
