Taavi ref by DawnFrost Taavi ref by DawnFrost
2010 Ref for Slyrunner errr Taavi ^^

I REALLY love his new name Taavi (tav for short)
T- short a -v -e
like naive from the Avatar movie only Taavi
and then T aa v

I actully found the name on a baby name site so NO I didn't take it from the movie -it was just the first thing that came to mind for how I pronounce the name

Any way Tav went through a redesign, and I like it a lot. He still has his white bangs and his white butt that many people love him for, he just got a make over.

Tell me what you think.

No I was just searching through one of my baby name sites and found it, decided I liked it, and it fit the character. Personally I haven't seen the name used for other characters, just people.

Awww! He's adorable! I like how you presented such a likeable character with such a cute and friendly-looking pose! It really matches his personality :D And Taavi is such a cute name! :heart:

Oh man, I absolutely LOVE his redesign! Of course you know I'll always be a ginormous fan of Sly's...er...Tav's original design, but this! I love it! Even with the design change, you still have that concept that it's the old Taavi. He hasn't lost a part of him at all! When you told me he was most likely getting a design change, I was wondering what you were going to do, but boy-oh-boy do I love this!

And you kept his white butt! Him and Cynder shall have millions of white butt babies!!

Oh and btw, it's Na'vi :heart: ;p

yay I'm really glad the people who really liked Taavi before are still in love with him after his redesign. That was a big worry of mine, but I knew I had to redesign him cause I wasn't completely happy with him. And yes I made it a necessity to keep his butt white XD or else people would kill me.

@ v @ -stares, drools, and takes him home with me-

Hehehe~
Slyrunner had always been my favorite, so I guess it's only natural that I've fallen head over heels for Taavi's new design! So wonderful!~ There's something about this picture and drawing too that makes me want to just nom everything! XD I don't know whether it's the coloring or the lineart or the anatomy, but it makes me drool. @ w @

I think it's this picture in full with everything combined that makes me just want to snuggle huggle Taavi into oblivion. < w < :heart:

adjshfjk *glomps Taavi and clings* I kinda like the new design, though I will miss the old Sly's design <3 Though personally I liked the goatee better without the mustache X3 but not my choice.

*uses back paw to keep Elyn away as I huggle him* =]

(I keep pronouncing his name like Tav-I instead of Tav-E lol :'D *shot*)

Wootness, theres that cute puppy face we all know and love <3

P.s. Idk how you did it with this pic, but you somehow managed to kick that art block of mine out the door. I just drew 2 epic sketch's after finding this in my inbox xD (I've been so uninspired these last couple weeks, All I've managed to do is write storys and make Pokemon crap with pre-made Sprites >.<)
