I said I would have it and in a similar format to the last, this is officially my last deviation before vacation so I hope ya all like it since you voted for it. Finally a good pic of Saffron before I head out. XD
Ok, when originally doing the sketch and was really tired so I ran out of many pose ideas, so instead I decided to go for a back shot since there aren't many and I thought it might look good if I pulled it off right.
I incorporated that little pointing gesture that I seem to have drawn with him a lot, kinda suits his character I guess, so that also is the story behind the deviation title.
*ALSO* I have updated my dA-ID since the deviant card is a worn out concept for me and I felt like it was time for a change. And like last time, expect a bigger purer ref pic to hit the scraps as well.
"They (the doctors) say lie down and rest off all the bangs and bruises.. I say it's time to get back on my feet.. It's like they say 'Get knocked down.. Hop back onto your feet and continue the ass kicking....' They say they know whats best, and probably do, but I have a score to settle with a rusty tin can named Nova. For whatever reason he didn't finish his business back there, and that mistakes gunna cost him big... Still, gotta wonder WHY he wouldn't, either I got lucky or there's more to that armor coated hog... just thinking about this is gunna bug me for awhile."
Halfway finishing what "A Book With Cover Broken" started in budding the rivalry between Saffron and Nova. A real scrap fest until the end, steel plating proved to be the difference maker, all though Big N didn't make it out without a scratch by any means (as I plan to illustrate later.)
Waking up nearly 20 hours later, the headstrong Purple Hedgehog found himself bandaged up pretty heavilly and lying inside a hospital bed, all though the staff made the mistake of leaving his gloves and shoes nearby and handy. With his mind made up almost from the waking moments, he readies himself to prematurely leave, an action that the doctors and other staff try to prevent but will ultimately fail in, even moving with a slight limp and aching all over from the previous night, he is able to get back into the free world and be more ready for a second confrontation with Nova. Better be more ready next time or there could be much more pain coming his way, since pride and perseverance with no plan is no better than stupidity.
The picture itself focused on the central character figure and the overall concept switched up multiple times, from having a random doctor character in it (which didn't pan out so I dropped the idea) to a cityscape outside the windows (a real pain in the ass that I would have not liked to try at this time, so I dropped it too.) So instead I settled on a semi simple hospital windowed wall and a calming yet "firey intense" sunset, which could be the backdrop for some of the Purple hedgehog's anger or firey spirit. It contrasted with the shading to me real nicely as well so it was what I eventually settled on. A final slight tint to help make everything flow and I found the pic to be complete. I would like to think of this as one of the best drawings I've done of Saff if not the best, and it will help pave the way for future, more detailed, character illustrations.
Hope everything is to your liking.

Sorry Saffy but you're going to have to endure a cold long Thanksgiving without Pumpkin Pie.
Now don't give me that face...
This was a kind of late Thanksgiving pic that I made while playing Halo 3 with over the night, in between the matches. I had to do something for the holiday after all, why not be an ass and taunt/ starve my fan character on a day of over consumption. ^^
Saffron the Hedgehog- Pumpkin Pie- Some baker that really knows how to decorate food... that "Don't Touch!" sign doesn't help much either. x3
Well, look who actually got something done. No, not me... That'd be silly. For those who don't already know, this is based off of a sketch made by in her character sheet located at this [link] .
My original plan was to get this AND an Art Trade done over the break but I am lazy and lots of stuff happened with friends over the break (nothing bad, just hanging out and enjoying the break) and I lost track of time until I had really.. no time left to use. My bad.
I improvised a lot of the background to fit this picture into a realistic environment yet again because I'm trying to move away from the black backgrounded color splats like I mentioned in my last pic. This was also a small experiment in another way because I ran this picture through some filters (to make it look less dull) and the shine that came out really caught my eye and a couple bud's eyes so I stuck with a filter version.
Anyways, here we have Saff.. the lazy bum is basking in the moonlight with a cocky grin on his face, the bastard. <3
If he's enjoying sitting there as much as I enjoyed working on this pic, no wonder why he's grinning so huuge... xD
SaffronTH - me.. yes me
