staring into chaos by Syaming-Li staring into chaos by Syaming-Li

Something I was dicking about with this morning, as I could not sleep, and it felt like I should work on a few techs. This was the result which... I actually quite bloody like. o_O; My god I wish learning stuff was harder. XD;;;

HE IS NOT HAPPY. ...The again, he rarely ever is. Posted at a largish (but not full) size so you can enjoy the brushyness. BRUSHYNESS.

Tempest the Hedgehog
Species: Hedgehog
Age: 18
Height: 3.6ft
Weight: 80lbs
Self-appointed Guardian of the secrets of Skye Island, Tempest the Hedgehog is a Hedgehog shrouded in mystery, especially in terms of his past; he has spent as long as he can remember keeping the secrets of the Great Civilisation that once lived on this sacred Island, who were able to weild immense powers using the the powers of Chaos. As a result, Tempest used these rituals and practices in order to increase his Chaos-weilding abilities. This came with a downside, however, as supression bands (created for him by Bubbles the Hedgehog) had to be created for him to contain the Chaos energy within him. He is far slower than Sonic the Hedgehog, but his ability to manifest Chaos energy as electricity makes him a force to be reckoned with. As a result, electro-magnetic pulses, Shock Blast and Electrical Barriers are but a few moves in his arsenal.

Tempest is a serious, to-the-point and knowledgeable hedgehog, who is quite quick to anger and can often find himself landing in hot water quite quickly. His self-appointed sister, Bubbles plays the yin to his yang, and is usually able to keep his cool. Though recently, that's been proving harder than ever, especially as Skye Island has been attracting a lot of attention recently- By G.U.N, eager to know about Tempest's Chaos abilities, and a certain round, spectacled individual, who's after something far more sinister lurking deep below the island...

[EDIT 19.05.10] Should have made a point to mention this before, but if you have no freakin' clue who Tempest the Hedgehog is, but are interested, his mini, Sonic-esque bio (as they should be, any longer and you may as well write fanfiction) can be found here!
[EDIT 2 19.05.10] Is it water?! Is it lightning?! Yanno what? I dunno. It's totally open to your own interpretations, guys! That's what art is about after all!
[EDIT 3 19.05.10] One major detail omitted, and to think I was staring at it for fucking ages, and never spotted it. I'M MADE OF WIN. Took some time out to polish a FEW bits up, but not too much as I wanted to retain the original roughness.

You know I always flip out when I see Tempest XDDDDD that shmexy hedgie ;0; I love his facial expression with the frustrated look and I've alwayyyyys adored his quills :3 Great job with the coloring as well!! It seems like a different technique in coloring. And trying out new things are always a plus!
