"I will always protect you..."

: I should probably mention that a lot of my inspiration for this image came from this amazing song by Nine Inch Nails. [link]
It reminds me of how Silver's "world" went away. Not only in the physical sense, but in a mental sense as well when he lost Blaze.
Hey, guys! This is my attempt at fighting against art block. I dunno what's gotten into me lately, but I've been feeling rather uninspired and lacking motivation. Needless to say, I was happy when this little idea starting popping up in my head. It's (of course) not as I planned, but nothing is. I still like it! (I probably went a little overboard with the glowies, but I can't help it! They're sooo pretty!) *_*
This is my second time drawing Silver, so go easy on me! xD
I realize the little guy has a lot of haters, but I can't imagine why. Maybe he takes the blame for a less-than-perfect game..? D: I think he's really cute, though. He has a sensitive side that the other characters seem to lack most of the time. Sure, his design is a little over-the-top-- but it's definitely something that grows on you. <3 (Actually, of all the hedgies-- I think he most closely resembles a real hedgehog. Which is good to me, since I'm a hedgehog-lover and caretaker.)
I should draw him more. Maybe with Blaze, too! ^^ Anyways, I hope you enjoy it!
Oh yeah... before I forget! As per the request of
... I have created a ZIP file containing various screen-grabs throughout the creation process of this image. From start to finish. This won't necessarily demystify anything, but it sure is neat to look at! c: I have many methods of painting, this is just one of them.
