SA - Prototype Silver the Hedgehog by Sonicguru SA - Prototype Silver the Hedgehog by Sonicguru
Here's a SA-stylized version of one of the many versions of Silver the Hedgehog.
Judging by the design, I guess he could be a porcupine but according to some design documents of Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, leads me to believe he is a mink which was his intended design (also orange for some reason).

Feel free to colour but link me back with the finished product.

Vision - I think that this could look really good colored in. Seeing it isn't, though, it's kind of lacking. Perhaps a black or grey background would do it some good.

Originality - This is a very original take on what Silver looks like, I think I may like this design better than the official 2006 design of Silver the Hedgehog. Well done!

Technique - Overall, pretty good. I assume that you used Adobe Illustrator to draw this, which is a good program to use.

Impact - This piece does have a decent impact on the viewers but I do think, as stated before, that some color will do it some good. Still, very good overall.
What do you think?

I like the prototypes better than the final version. I really like the version where Silver has Green eyes, and a gold mane as opposed to orange eyes and a silver mane.

I think that this version or the alternate color versions are better than the one we have today

Wait wait, this was suppose to be his ORIGINAL design? -_- Why in the world did Sega or Sonic Team decide to go with the other one then? This looks MUCH better.

There is another 3 designs.
1 - An alternate coloured version of Silver with different boots, yellow chest fur and blue eyes: [link]
2 - Another version of current Silver but with his head fur combed back over his head and only spikes when using his powers and shoes instead of boots: [link]
3 - A cyborg hedgehog with a ponytail: [link]

So the first one was just basically a recolor of Silver's chest fur and eyes with a different pair of boots. The second one I've seen before, which again looks better with the quils. But the, I would have bought that if it was in the game offically. =/

Kinda bad design choices by Sega's part man.

Still, I think this one is the best. Doesn't look like a hedgehog at first glance and has a future-esque design that isn't over the top
SkylertTH Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
That as well. Still can't believe that out of all the designs for Siver, they pick the one design that is more outrageous silly tha the rest. Not counting the first alternate one that is.

Man, this is so cool, I've never seen such original look for him! Many draws of Silver in SA style are just the same hedgehog you see in 2006, and others are a simple recolor of Sonic with silver stripes on his forehead! This awesome pick goes on my gallery!83

I like this version better. Looks more like a surfer and less like a pot-head
