The bandages are sports tape, witch helps improve performance
The scarf looks cool XD I really don't know why it's there, but it looks cool.
The blue arms, remember people this is a older sonic, and as sonic ages things will change. Deal with it XD
everything else is pretty much the same, so it doesn't really matter...
but amy rose is still cute! but i prefer her poofy dress and mattching boots but she is still a cutie pie <3
Honestly they kind of just smooth out his design a bit,the bandages add some extra spice and the new scarf adds an extra pop of warmth that was previously carried by only the shoes. Plus, brown goes well with blue AND green!~
My only complaint is that the new shoes are now a million times more painful to draw than the old ones were. XD They look nice, but wow, those bandages make drawing them really...difficult.
Also, the only thing I'll be sad about with this design is that this is a one time thing. I wish this were the new official design of Sonic. It's new and refreshing...and I think that's what Sonic really needs more of, "New and refreshing".
I don't mind his new look, or the blue arms. I find it just as ridiculous as those people who used to complain about Sonic's eye color.
I actually like his new look, and voice. It really suits his adventure loving hero self, and it also reminds me in ways of the Scout from TF2, who is also similar to Sonic in ways.
