I was legitimately surprised that there was only one result upon a Google Image Search for 'sonic hedgehog beard.' As such I had to take it upon myself to render Sonic with a chinful of hair in preparation for the Sonic Endurance Race for charity event coming up on Sunday, March 18th!
I was streaming the whole process, in addition to some other misscellany. Should you wish to watch all of how bearded Sonic came around- simply do so below! It also acts pretty nicely as 1h25m of radio for anyone at work with headphones needing some background music.
