Back in May, during a Friday evening I was having some beer as I tend to (when I’m not on medication) while watching Markiplier’s sonic.EYX video. I liked how Tails looked there, or rather I felt a strong urge to comfort him. That’s how I came up with a prompt for this commission. ZiPo was glad he finally had an excuse to draw Tails because he had been wanting to for a while. I still had to wait almost five months because life happened, but here it is.
Originally ZiPo didn’t draw the sneakers because his reference images didn’t have them. I don’t know why he used these particular images or how it happened to be barefoot Tails, but I kinda liked how he drew the paws, so I asked to add the sneakers as an additional version rather than the only one.
