Saff Front by SaffuranLoL Saff Front by SaffuranLoL
Tableted one of the ref sketches and gave it a nice lighting touch. Hope it looks fancy enough.. at least it's cleaner than WereSaff... but then again it's not hard to be. xD

*Yes is still working on Halloween pic and a few other doodles but I took on a side project*

Saff is happy, he's colored again. =P

Saffron the Hedgehog + Art = :iconallbowdown:

I'm not much a critic but all I can say is that the lineart could've been better.

But it's still pretty awesome.I think I might make a tribute of him.

One question though: What power does he have? Just curious 'cause I was thinking of doing a fight scene.

Yeah, tableted lines are never as clean as Pen Tool ones only because they are still done by hand and such. I wasn't aiming for any form of perfection with this little front ref, just a visual. XD

It'd be awesome to see somethin done, I always like seeing how others draw my characters. ^^


**
As for a power, Saff is like his own little rechargeable battery. A lot of people like to associate it with Chaos-like powers, and you can since it makes sense, but my original intention was for it to be something that was created, not necessarily super stable but dangerous. It's more like a "buffing" power that increases attributes usually, it can be channeled through the limbs to increase strength or speed in kicks or punches, usually illuminating the feet/and or hands in a purple aura. It can also be used in a balanced way over the whole body which visually shows the aura for the whole body, Though the aura is pretty dim so it could be akin to like a little bit of purple smoke coming off the body, nothin' really overpowering. (old example [link] )

Another way he can use the energy is in either a small or large blast that he usually fires from his pointer and middle fingers in one of those "hundgun" like actions. If I had to give you a visual, it's be kind of similar to Yu-Yu Hakusho's Spirit Gun. So just like a short, quick beamish looking thing.

Only issue is that he can't do too much of anything regarding the power because if it is ever completely used up then it can't recharge, and it's what basically keeps him together. S' kinda the one fail-safe I made that stops the whole "destroy with endless beams" thing from happening, humbling Saff to make sure he wasn't godmod. Hope the descriptions are useful. ^^;

Interesting.
Very informative.I found it useful.

Y'know, Scales can control fire,but that's only limited to his anger.Since he barely gets angry, he hardly ever sees combat.But if he ever snaps, that power could hurt even himself, because he wasn't born with the ability to control fire. He became a guinea pig to some deadly experiments that involves turning biothermal temperature into a flame that can be controlled at will. Since the experiment wasn't finish, due to Scales recent escape, Scales is still vulnurable to his own newfound power.Well...Scales can still control fire without any serious risk, but if he prolongs its use, he'll waste his own body heat,Which can bring some very bad aftereffects later on.

Hmm.. when you think about it, it's sorta like....uh....a mutant from X-Men,if you will.

Sorry for bragging, but thanks anyway. That tribute for you will be done real soon. Keep a look out for it.^^

I still haven't gotten used to my tablet either. Everything still comes off twitchy and sketchy looking.

But I like the overall design here. Great shading job too.

The emblem is way too crisp compared to the rest of the pic. It needs toning down a LOT to fit in with what's otherwise an excellent image. You've got the head/height ratio perfect, and the hands and feet are in proportion too.

Your experiments with the new style are interesting. With the above comment about the emblem in mind, keep the style consistent and you'll be looking good in the future should you come to do this again. Which I hope you do.

I wouldn't say his name is completely original since I took it from a spice/flower and as for the design I wanted to originally make something I really hadn't seen before.. and by some bout of luck I did. =p

I meant original as in... nobody's ever used it before. XD

And you definitely succeeded in your attempt at originality. His hairstyle is so unorthodox (in a good way), that I still can't quite make it out. XDDD
