Character pelt color changes
#1
Okay, so I just had a super simple question regarding a very basic change to a character. Like, coloration.

So, I am asking specifically for Aedan. Now, when I created him, for some reason his main pelt color looked more gold to me. But, I look at it all the time, since, and just...It's waay more yellow than I'd like it to be. Now, seeing as his design is really two-toned, and this wouldn't be a huge change at all. Would it be okay if I toned his pelt color down to a more realistic shade? Still keeping the same color-scheme, but dialing it down a notch?

Thanks to whoever answers! I feel dumb for putting such a dumb question, here. >.<

I think this should be fine, as long as it's not a very significant change of hues. Different pictures, drawings and sketches often portray character in slightly different colours and lighting anyway, so you can easily get away with slight changes! I think making the choice to tone his coloration down a notch to make it more realistic is a sensible one, seeing as he very yellow-y for a wolf when I look at his current avatar :)

Exactly it's been bugging me for a long, long time!

Thank you! I will finagle his main pelt color code down to a more realistic shade.

Yeah, that's fine. Hue variations are pretty normal irl anyway, and we are also okay with summer/winter coat variations in characters. :)
