Sanctuary Soaring by Speedy1236 Sanctuary Soaring by Speedy1236
Feels like ages since I uploaded any art. Well, I'm not dead. :wave:

Anyway, about the picture. Maybe a few watchers with a great memory will recognize that Knuckles is a sketch from my submission that explained how echidnas glide. I was really fond of the sketch and always wanted to color it in. Looks like I finally did. :XD:

The only other special thing about Knuckles is that he turned out pretty adorable without my special intention. I realized only after coloring him that his head is pretty big in comparision to the rest, what results in him looking somewhat like a kid echidna. I liked little Knux and decided to keep him that way. :aww:

Picked Sky Sanctuary as the background for no special reason. A friend suggested it, Sky Sanctuary looks awesome, and I like drawing clouds. (Hence, there are a lot of them here.)

Knuckles (C) Sega/Sonic Team
Art is all mine. Feel free to use as wallpaper, though. :)

I loved playing as Knuckles in Sonic & Knuckles just because of his gliding and climbing abilities. :P

And this is an excellent picture of the classic Knuckles I remember. :meow:

I wish they'd bring playable Knuckles back. I always loved climbing onto stuff as him, and if just to enjoy the view. :XD:

Thanks!
