But did you base it off the drawn concepts the sprites were based off, or did you base it off the sprites?
They kinda cheat with the bottom of eyes and top of the snout for design simplicity, so I'm not sure if it's the best of ways; they do have the most short anthros though.

Little A, little B I suppose. The sprite itself is literally a stick figure with a circle head made into this so. And I agree on short anthro's, as to why this one is a bit bigger, as it's intent was a anthro character, but since Yama is a hedgehog and I can see him being no other animal... I tried to reinvent a wheel, and hedgehog anthro's don't exist except for sonic OC's.

Looks good, although kinda like the chararacter is ridiculously straight-backed. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact his legs are more relaxed, it gives the impression he's leaning back somewhat. Might help if you were to move the head forward a touch or alternatively shorten the body/lengthen the legs slightly to give a more balanced look to his appearance.
I'd suggest also either lowering the nose a touch our bringing it out of his face slightly - at the moment it looks kinda... concave.
Other than that, mostly looking alright - feels weird seeing Yama not... Y'know... All purpley with red eyes and such.

Well I decided to make two Yama's. This is 'canon' Yama, but there's a second Yama that is the same coloration as last Yama. This happened a bit ago, but I've yet to fully implement them in any kind of story based comic so. They are two different people with the same name. As for the eyes, they were removed for a reason. After consideration and rewrites of story, I've made Yama a bit less of a super power manic thing so.. I'll post a a story bit when I make the other Yama.

If you want to keep the hedgehog part, have you referenced the actual animal? The design simplifications aren't very close to the actual thing.

I have, and it's pretty close considering.

@Yamataro: Er; I'm not sure I'm seeing the same thing: http://imgur.com/HIODE6i
I mean, if you like the look as it is, that's cool, but as an anthropomorphic hedgehog I'm not sure that's entirely accurate (which, if I may add, is totally fine considering the original sonic design)

Hmm. Looking at the drawing helps more, since the real life pics were a bit more strange to look at. I'll give this look a consideration.
