Entrant: Martin Beyer (germany) hedgehog.jpg
For years he treveled around the world to see different cultures to learn all kinds of languages and martial arts. especially baton and sticks combats. all based on defence.
the hedgehog is his symbol for smooth quiet moves and his combat style.
he got his name from his last combat teacher somewere in asia.
now he lives in tokyo. in the daytime he works as professor...
his main weapon is a baton which is able to shoot away little stings.
also he has got the long stings or quills at his suit. the quills at his arm are sharp and very dangerous for attackers !
more background :
I had to ask him before I write down something wrong!! or somthing he don´t want to make public.
He is a friend of mine. I met him long time ago on his way from singapore to bangkok. He was sitting in a dark corner of the trainstation, when I saw him first. I wondered about his behave. he didn´t look strange or afraid of something. it seamed like he studie the people around him in a calm way...
we had the same way and talked the whole trainride. he was never surprised about my interest in his storry.
He came from a little city in east canada. His family was common. nothing special... no dead parends ...no violent father... and they had enough money .... nothing what him let to leave his family or his country...
The reason why he left his home to travel round the world was to find his own way, which he couldn´t find in his old life. he left it behind.
On his ride across lots of countries he had to realize that most of all people in the world had never got the chance to live in a normal way... without violence.. without hunger ... without danger ... without fear ...
from this point he knew what his way would be ...
the end of this journey was than the beginning of hedgehog the super hero.
Very cool concept. I really like his emblem. The overall design's very eye catching with all the spikes and stuff. Not to mention it would be a great fun to sculpt them. Just my humble suggestion, perhaps if you put a bit more into his background story like what subject does he teach and his motives to be a super hero, he'd be even more believable.
thanks a lot for all comments !!
I have updated the background of my hero a bit. My english is so bad that it took longer to write something than modelling the first steps of the model
but here now the base mesh and the first result of sculpting after one hour...and two hours of writing and searching the right words
