The new Sonic image is either fake, a stupid early mockup image, or the product of a completely inept production company that does not employ professional artists. Just take a few seconds to analyze how it is constructed. The edges are messy; the fur texture is just photoshopped on; and the highlights and shading are done with overlay and multiply layers with simple white and black. There's no adherence to color theory in it at all.
