Dumb running Sonic is too funny for its own good photo



Got a knack for creating simple animations? Got no art skills whatsoever? Then it's time to play a fun new game called "Dumb running Sonic," where the goal is to make the goofiest-looking Sonic running animation, save it as a GIF, and share it with the world.

Our artsy buddy Zac Gorman, the Mega Man 2 guide fella, made a post last week about how cute it would be if Sonic "ran like an idiot." His animation was seen as a challenge by Nedroid artist Anthony Clark, who responded with this little number and a call for other artists to submit their interpretations. The response has been overwhelming, spawning the Tumblr page below.

You really should spend a few minutes browsing through the submissions. I guarantee you'll have a hearty laugh. I even posted a few choice pics in their full animated GIF glory after the jump. Enjoy!

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
