Character Development 1 by SilverDeni Character Development 1 by SilverDeni
I've been wanting to do this for years. And I'm glad I managed to finish part one of this.
Yeah, I'll make one for the feline too.

Ok created this character in 2003. She wasn't something representing 'me' back then. I used to draw comics on notebooks back in middle school, she used to be named "Sparky" I think, I will need to look at the comics when I go hoime fff.

2003 - first design, if I may call it a design. Just a GSD mix mutt thing. Nothing special.
2004 - a silverwolf, I used to go online with the silverwolf name, but no real account or anything that remained with that name. I think it's what brought the 'silverdeni' later on. She used to appear in some of my notebooks.
2005 - Wolf/Dog mix, we may call it Dingo nowadays. The very first character that represents 'me'. Entered the Balto world with the silverwolf, but I wanted something that defines 'me' more. Her design looked like Balto, quite a lot. I added the fringe / spikes. And the blueish / teal eyes.
2006-2007 - same species, added the scarf on her. Eye patches disappeared. They did progressively until it stuck with the character. She used to be seen in most of my 'emotional' pictures, hence her expression.
late 2007-2009 - again, same, her colours are brighter, shortened the tail. She gets her first dogtag which is blue. And the striped socks. Always loved stripes.
2009-2010 - Abused the saturation tool in most finished pieces of this character. Liked the colours so I kept them for a while. Dogtag changed to grey as she was mated to Mushy.
2010-early 2011 - JAUNDICED. Abused the saturation tool more. Dropped the striped socks and added the stripes on her back instead. Spiked the fluff on her elbows, cheeks and 'mane'. Extended the tail. Blame Mushy for that XP
late 2011-today - final design, markings went from brown to very dark brown / almost black. Main coat is orange like a Dingo.

Not many changes xD but here's what I got, enjoy!

Number four really spoke to me when you said you used her in a lot of your 'emotional' pictures.
My character used in my art like that quite often

I think I remember first seeing your art during the 2005 stage X3 If you were on balto source during that time that's probably where. Ah yes, I remember the good old days on balto source haha The site today oh gawsh.

But it's so interesting seeing how a character develops and changes. If I saw a drawing of that first character I wouldn't even recognize it haha I'd recognize the ones from red scarf and up, though c: Oh gawsh.. I should try and make one of these of my OC. I feel bad I changed her so much. haha
