SW: The Cheerful Dolphin Sister by GuardianMobius SW: The Cheerful Dolphin Sister by GuardianMobius
Full View, Please.

Edit: Not even two days have passed by and I have to make an edit. What? Is it a running gag that every time I make a purple dolphin, I find an issue with it that makes me want to change the color? This time is that the purple parts made her have Blaze the Cat's coloration. D'oh! So to rectify that mistake, I recolored her to cyan, which is still close to her brother's blue. I also changed Lily's skirt from pencil to petal to fit the theme. She at least has a purple outfit.

Also, I have changed the conventions I do character pictures with a sleeker looking background and watermark for GuardianMobius, and all of the characters, no matter their height, would take up the same amount of space. You know the old saying, "less is more."
Well, I do not need to go through this again. She had her name change in the middle of her last design...

This is Lily the Dolphin, Wake's little sister. Since they are the same species of dolphin, not only was the chart beneficial for Wake, but Lily too. There is a difference when it comes to the design of male and female Mobian dolphins. Aside from the obvious (smaller beaks, eye-lashes, long hair (don't ask), curves, and breasts), female dolphins are B2 on the Sonic Dolphin Redesign Chart, while males are B8. It means that females have necks much like Sonic and Amy, which there is no clear connection between the head and torso. This helps make the females look daintier than their male counterparts.

Another change I made to Lily is her color. Her first design was yellow with purple accents; and her second design was yellow with orange accents. Why is she purple? I actually tried to give the monochromatic tri-shade of her brother with the orange and she looked like she had Cream's coloration. Another thought that came to mind was "Wake and Lily are siblings, so why are their colors on the opposite side of the spectrum? Why not a color that is close to blue that could have been a mix of the colors of the parents?" So I used the purple that I discarded in the second design, which is ironic, because I discarded purple twice for a dolphin character's design before. :lol:

the other reason of why she's purple, she fall in love with frenzy wisps, but chuuuuut, because she wants it to remain a secret. even his brother didn't know about this xD
one day, During Sonic Colors, she met some frenzy wisps in aquarium park, & since she can't live without them, she played too much with them, so much that her body has changed color and so she became a purple dolphin :lol:

more seriously, she's really beautiful in purple I love the simplicity of her design =)

Lily: :giggle: What? I have been purple all of my life, silly. I heard of Eggman's Interstellar Amusement Park, but didn't go before Sonic took it down. Frenzy wisp?

Oh, you... Once a character is designed,

Uh oh. She has Blaze's coloration! D'oh!

Lily: Does this mean I have to be recolored again?

Yes it does...

Lily: Oh darn...

It's not your fault. I should have done my research before hand. :meow: What do you think of the background?
kodjo1 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012  Student Artist
Looks good, it seems a little bit too bright on left, but still Classy background :meow:

The original idea was a white wash, but then I added the dark side. Thank you on the classy part. :D
