An updated ref of my mobian hedgehog character Radium.
Instead of doing the typical three quills, I instead went for a more realistic look and did the short, large number of quills that you would find on a real hedgehog.
Compared to his old ref, I kept the watch arm-like stripes on his arms and the three on his forehead, but instead of a skin-tone belly I gave him a little logo; something similar to the radioactive symbol. He is not an elemental, but he does handle radioactive elements. The way he can get close to high levels of radiation (levels more than enough to kill a human, but nowhere near that of something such as a nuclear bomb) is because of his body's slow cell division, so frying and/or getting cancer is very rare or near impossible when being exposed to his safe levels. The big block things on top of his gloves are titanium-coated lead boxes where he stores all of the radiation (gets absorbed through his fingertips and travel through little channels to the boxes). His powers are radiation-charged blasts that he can fire at enemies, and he can also heal; he can let out very small doses of radiation to kind of cauterize and close open wound (closing via accelerating cell division and then sucking out all the radiation to slow down the cells), and he can also use it to help destroy cancer cells in patients suffering from the disease (basically a chemotherapy hog). But, something with the energy of a nuclear warhead can kill him, so he's not completely immune to radiation.
Personality-wise he's helpful, friendly (not bubbly or anything), social, but a bit scared of humans--especially ones in uniform.
So that's Radium in a nutshell.
