The latest Sonic the Hedgehog trailer revealed the characters cartoonish redesign, which received near-universal praise from fans after the backlash over the original and more realistic look led to Paramount going back to the drawing board. And as it turns out, one of the people hired to work on the redesign has a long history, both on and off the internet, with the character.

After the trailers online debut, artist and director Tyson Hesse revealed that he led the team who redesigned the look of Sonic in Sonic the Hedgehog.

Hesse has worked on Sonic the Hedgehog properties for years. Hes designed several covers for both Archie Comics and IDW Publishings respective Sonic the Hedgehog series. His Sonic work has also extended to video games like Sonic Mania, Sonic Mania Adventures, and hes responsible for the Sonic Mania Plus pre-order trailer. Each iteration of Sonic that he makes might vary from the last, but it never shies away from the characters iconic cartoon-esque feel.

Hes also responsible for the infamous Nipples the Enchilada Sonic webcomic, which has endured nearly a decade since he first posted it.
