While it does come off as a beard I think it's supposed to be some form of weirdly applied motion blur on his mustache

I think y'all are confusing Greg Wray's work with Greg Martin's. Very similar in style and name, but they're not the same. Hence why tails looks different. lol

Greg Martin did the work for most box art genny titles, including Sonic 2.

Sadly, Martin did pass away a few years back. R.I.P. to a great artist.

For the longest time I always assumed that this was something cobbled together for a magazine preview (something like this), but the mono-eye is consistent with both this artwork and Sonic 3's NA box art. Was Knuckles originally slated to receive a redesign for the American market akin to Sonic, Tails and Robotnik, or is this just an error that nobody bothered to correct?

Huh, where is this image from? I don't think I've ever seen it before. That's a fun theory.
