_ALTOR_ by nocturnalMoTH _ALTOR_ by nocturnalMoTH
gawd, I love this hedgehog... <3

This is Altor ([link]) - he is created by :)
I got so fascinated by this awesome hedgie that I just had to ask Zuniku if she'd let me do a fanart of him :3
so - all credits about the character goes to her :#1:
Altor has the ability to control water, so I wanted to do a little drawing with this cutie where he's just playing around with water (n_n) He seemed like such a calm and nice guy, so I thought a peaceful pose would kinda fit him ^^

*stares at the original picture of Altor on zuniku's site* man, how I adore this character ^^ I love the design Zuniku did on him! oh lawd, Altor deserve his own game!

anyway, so this is a tribute to ALTOR :boogie: hope you guys like it! :D

just for fun, I've made a image in my scraps of how I worked on this picture :3

in case anyone's interrested.

This is amazing. It reminds me I need to get back into the StH art style again. This brings the question: with art this amazing, do you take commissions?

I was going to say that he looks like Silver's son, but come to think of it, I'd prefer if he weren't related to Silver in any way. AnyaNeon was right, this guy looks a great deal better than Silver. He seems to have a better and more likeable personailty (at least that's the vibe I'm getting from his expression and what not in this pic), is drawn in a very nice style and, in several ways, just looks to be an all around 'better' character than Silver.

Isn't it amazing that one can get that vide just from this picture? I'm not sure wether that's because Altor's a good character or because Silver's just such a bad character...

Anyway... from a technical standpoint, great work. The water effect's pretty and very nicely done (while not so eye drawing as to distract from the character) and a surprsing amount has been done with the minimalist background, which fits well with the overall picture both visually and thematically (the whole 'calmness' ethoes).

Fan characters aren't really my thing, but this picture more than deserves a spot in my favorites. Nicely done...

In fact, I wouldn't mind knowing more about this character. Is there anywhere on Zuniku's profile where I could locate such info?

Well, Zuniku sadly moved her account to [link], and has no info, nor any art, about Altor.. :( which is too bad, because he really is a great character and the artwork she had on him was great!

Before I drew this picture, I read a lot about him so that I could make his personality reflect through the drawing without having to write about it. I always try doing that; show the character's personality throught their expression. And I'm glad it kinda shows, according to the vibes you got about him :)

I also agree that Altor could be better than Silver. well, I kinda like Silver's personality, but I can't really say I'm much fond of his design (like how that thing on his head looks like weed..), and actually I think Altor was created before Silver was, so... yeah, I like Altor the best ^-^

Thank you so much for the kind comments on this fan-art, and the way I coloured it and all ^^, And thanks a lot for the fav!

btw, if you want to know more about Altor, I think Zuniku would be just happy if you asked her ^^

Awesome! I like the pose and the look in his face. The coloring and lighting on this is very impressive too and it's hard to miss, but you really captured the blue glow from the floating water. Excellent work, you make me jealous lol. Must :+fav:

Wow great artwork! This brings about a question though. What brought about elemental powers to characters in the sonic universe?

But, I think maybeee....Blaze, yeah, I think she brought the elemental stuff to the Sonic universe. Not sure though, just a thought :o

yeh, it's water :3 I've just never drawn water before so it doesn't look all that...water-ish ;p
but thank you so much! :dance:
and the character, Altor, isn't mine - he belongs to Zuniku. So, yes, he's adorable (n_n) Just HAD to do a fan-art of him :boogie: And he really does look like he could've been an official character, doesn't he? :3 I luff him

thanks a lot for the sweet comment :)
