Cold to the World by SaffuranLoL Cold to the World by SaffuranLoL
I was inspired by seeing a few of those "in show" style pics so I thought about trying one myself. Sorry for some sloppiness in the background, I'm still working on making better settings for pictures.
************

Winter has rolled in, and with it, Saff is wandering the snowy hills outside of the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, mostly to get some piece and quiet away from society. It is somewhat clear that he was approached by a being not pictured but that whoever did come doesn't seem to be out looking for a brawl. Being used to fighting and violence Saff's first reaction (or instinct/reflex) was to put his guard up, which he is in the middle of dropping with a questionable look on his face at this exact time.

Fact of the matter is, he hasn't gotten along well with too many others for awhile, he's really only open to a small set of closer friends and really just turns himself off in public. His general distrust is kind of sad since it prevents too much socialization and unless around those previously mentioned friends, he really just sticks to himself. He is cold to the world, hence the name. Provided the chance to maybe talk he will probably walk out and continue to wander the cold for awhile. It'll probably be a lonely Christmas.

Aaaa I'm so sorry I love this ; w ;

And I was snooping around because I want to draw him because I have always liked this hedgehog and looking to see how I should draw him.. this coming up just made me think "where is his scarf?" aha xD I have a thing for those

I'll read his bio though for more info ;v;~
Still awesome work on this ;u;

Don't hafta be sorry about that. <3 :3

I'm really happy you like Saff, and yeah he never had a scarf once he became an unwilling test subject and if no one lent him one he'd just sorta be out there. But he's resourceful, the cold is just another thing to deal with is all.

Thanks a bunch and I look forward to seein how you draw him, should you decide to! x3

Spazz looks great because of all of those colors. ^^

Whatever you do you are still one of the best artists I've seen on dA, so to hear that I provided any sort of inspiration means quite a bit.

Thanks for the comment and happy my work is good enough to be wuved. xD

Yea, I know i havent been drawing spazz much and i think becuase its sooo much work coloring her. she has like different shades of purple. I just recently posted a new pic and amy took me like 5 min to color while spazz took me like 30+ min. But its worth the uniqueness and creativity.

and thank you so much for your comment and you are very welcome :]
