Father's Day 08 by chibi-jen-hen Father's Day 08 by chibi-jen-hen
not exactly a "Happy Father's Day" pic but I decided to draw all the dads of my Sonic fan characters. I usually just draw Garnet, Emerald's father. But I figured I'd doodle the others. These might not be their permanent designs but they're pretty close.

Ok start at the top and go counter clockwise (and these descriptions are true to when the girls were younger, like first born).:

Garnet: Emerald's dad and the leader of the pack. He treats everyone like his children, working hard to ensure they all have a promising future. There are many that want to see him dead, as his ideas are a bit radical compared to what the powers-that-be have decided for the group, but his particular branch of JCs won't let that happen any time soon.

Diamond: Crystal and Jade's father and Garnet's right hand guy. He either lends encouraging words, or a back up fist. Whatever gets his point across in the end. He's not exactly hot headed, but he understands sometimes force is the only option. I imagine him and Garnet's relationship being a lot like Shigure and Ayame from Fruits Basket though >.> XD

Jasper: Sapphire's dad, he's shy and quiet but hardworking. He loves working with his hands and often dables in carpentering (is that a word?). He likes building things, mostly furniture. He doesn't speak much, but when he does it's probably wise to listen, he usually has a practical, open minded view.

The last one is Ruby's father and....he doesn't have a name yet T.T I was thinking of calling him a few things but nothing sticks. HELP ME! LOL (PS/EDIT: To those of you who suggested names, thank you first of all. Secondly, Ruby's dad isn't a Jewel Carrier, so he doesn't need a jewel name. That's why this is so hard for me LOL everyone else I either thought of or got from websites about gemstones lmao! I'm pathetic!)

Anyways about him: Ruby's father is by far the youngest father, only being 14 at the time Ruby was conceived. (Shush there's a reason). He's very girly but kind hearted and compassionate, he wants to lend a helping hand whenever he can. He's also very artistic, he's either drawing or playing his guitar. If you notice, he doesn't have a face mask like a raccoon, but that was caused by a medication he needed for a disease he had as a baby. It permanently bleached his fur white, causing him to lose his raccoon markings. Later on the sickness comes back to haunt him but the treatment he needs will make him sterile. (That's why he and topaz rush off to have a baby LOL but um. more of that will come in my comic. someday XD)

So that's it! Everyone's papa. I should draw everyone's mama at some point. XD

Happy Father's Day

So, does Ruby's dad have a name yet? Oh well here's my horrible ideas
1, Basil
2, Rhys/Reese
3, Zircon
4, Hiro (not trying to copy from Big Hero 6) X3

Telling from his wardrobe I would call him Han you know like Han Solo from Star Wars. The white fur and black vest reminds me of him. In my opinion at least. XD

Maybe Theodore (or Theo or short) for Ruby's dad? Idk i just looked up gemstones and thats a yellow one so yeah. I'm just going with the eye colours

I like the way you drew Emerald's dad. It really shows off where her horns came from! Also, your drawings inspired me to draw a chameleon hybrid, except he is a mix of a Deadly Nadder (How to Train your Dragon) and a chameleon! Anyway, rock on!
KittKat3 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Maybe you should name Ruby's dad Anthony? That's my dad's name.

Draco-Digi Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow I can't believe how long ago this was put up. Doesn't feel that long xD I remember commenting on it before too! Call him Sundance cos he's white/gold-brown. Or Rings as an unfortunate joke xD
BriannaTheIgwana Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012

bleuStarAngel Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Cool ^_^

dragon924 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011  Student
I have a few questions :
Amethyst does not love, Garnet, why have a baby?
And if they all have years?
Do Garnet died or disappeared, and what happened to him?
Why are all married, she was in such pairs?
And why Garnet is a leader?
Who took the Emerald, Garnet was not, and Amethyst passed away?

I do not know English well sorry for mistakes
nice photo

Do you still not have a name for Ruby's dad cause I got a few to tell ya..
Hurricanebomb13 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
i think the name "Rhine" is good for Ruby's dad Since he's not a jewle carrier ("Rhine" as in Rhinestone) and Rhinestones aren't really Jewels. :iconloveloveplz:
Aura-Psychick Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2011

If Ruby's father is not to be named after a gem, try something else, like a metal, or a wood. Maybe Teak or something like that.

adelie72 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010

Tourmaline - Tourmaline is classed as a semi-precious stone and the gem comes in a wide variety of colors.

Elbaite species: named after the island of Elba, Italy

* Rose or pinkórubellite variety (from ruby)
* Dark blackóschorl (from indigo)
* Light blue to bluish greenóBrazilian indicolite variety
* Greenóverdelite or Brazilian emerald variety
* Colorlessóachroite variety (from the Greek "άχρωμος" meaning "colorless")

So from the little info on this page I assume he was green(ish) then became colourless. It kinda ties in even if he isn't a jewel carrier. Maybe Tourmal for short? I don't like the -ine on the end for a name but hey :)
SweetChastity Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2010
Got the info off wikipedia
GamaTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2010
Maybe Paladium or Graphite. I'm not sure whether Granite sounds better for a girl name or a boy name. Hm Amethyst isn't bad. Holly crap. There's a mineral that is called Thuder Egg. Also appearently theres another mineral called Sunstone. Man I need to close that mineral chart.
PhoebeHedgefox Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009

Heh I still find it funny have Bam freak Jasper out by taking his hands and looking at him all starry eyed and saying, "Can I call you dad?"
MadMontyZuma Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
You know... on the risk of getting bricked (what is that 5 times today) you COULD call him Raphael. LOL
SamBlob Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009
Friendly, helpful, a bit girly, and sickly... hmm... How about something like Vulcan, or Titan, or Cutthroat Jake?

Misfortune09 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2008
u can name Ruby's dad, Brock, Red, Pyro, or Dan. i dunno why i said Dan, he just seems to be a Dan guy y'know, hey Dan. yeah.
Hatena-Sara-chan Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2008

Okay, either one of my Sonic fan characters could easily fall for any of these fabulous adventurers! (especially Diamond and Ruby's father)

Cassie and Violet: Too bad they're already taken!!!! T-T

Oh, hush, you already have your own love interests. But anyway, I love the poses and personalities (they match! it's awesome.) and giving characters such detailed backgrounds is something I, as an irritatingly-addicted-to-detail kind of person, appreciate very much!

And I'm not sure if you've picked a name yet, but when I looked at Ruby's father the name Malecai popped into my head, and maybe you could spell it Malekai and his nickname could be Kai. It isn't a gem, and it isn't exactly 'normal' or common either. Just a suggestion. ^-^
