My initial reaction to Quilladin was what the eff?!
It took me a few days to get over the sensation as the design slowly settled down in my head, when I finally figured out that it’s honestly just another case of over-stylization (that is to say, Sugimoritis). After all, the entire line is supposed to have a hedgehog/chestnut theme (And that makes sense - chestnut shells do look like hedgehog quills, kind of) and the Warrior/Knight archetype.
So I drew it as some kind of hedgehog warrior with a thick coat of greenish quills… and it actually works now.
The leafy sword and shield were sort of my own touch, though. Because as a knight it’s almost inevitable it’ll get Leaf Blade eventually. XD
