flick on your inner hero

The title seems a little corny, but that’s what I wrote at the bottom of the page. It’s also a pun. I like puns. Puns are fun.

Anyway.

Random illustration of Amy Rose taking up hammer in hand to protect her Flicky friends. It actually looks more like they’re celebrating than anything else. I used Amy’s classic look because I love the pseudo retro feel to her outfit. It’s really cute.

I was thinking about how Princess Peach was a playable character in the old Mario games, and not merely a damsel. In the classic Sonic promo art, Amy was often depicted as the girl who liked Sonic or the girl who Sonic rescues. Damsel or potential love interest.

But then I thought of Peach.

What if, in the original games, Amy had her hammer (or some variation)? And what if she actually used it to defend the Flickies/forest animals from Dr. Robotnik’s forces? What if she was a playable character in the original Sonic 1-3 games? What fun! X3

That thought process is how this illustration came to be.
