Prickly Porcupine, from Battle Beasts! One of the great gimmicks I loved about Battle Beasts were the heat-rub symbols... your Battle Beast was aligned to one of three elements, and you didn't know which element they fought for until you bought them and opened the package... So you could even have the two same figures, but with different allegiances - all of which I thought was pretty neat! The three elements, if memory serves, were 'Water', 'Wood', and 'Fire', and they were like a cool game of 'rock, paper, scissors'. Water would defeat Fire, Fire would defeat Wood, and Wood would defeat Water. The idea of heat rub stickers had come out previously with Transformers as a way to authenticate that your Transformer was an official Transformer (I guess as opposed to Diaclones or KOs etc) - actually incorporating them into the narrative with Battle Beasts was a stroke of genius. I didn't follow much of what happened with Battle Beasts post this heat rub phase, with the lazer versions etc... but I think Transformers acquired Battle Beasts, and there may have even been Autobot and Decepticon Battle Beasts! How cool would that have been? If I'd have had one of those as a kid, my young brain would have exploded.

Still needs some tightening up, erasing and then inks and colors on better paper. Thank you to everyone who watched the videos of my creative process. Please let me know if you want to see more of these.
