Was supposed to be called 'The Soldier, the Princess and the Southern Belle', but it didn't fit. T_T Wanted to muck with some colored shadows and draw some of my old furry faves again. This was the result, and I'm pretty happy with it.
My favorite girls from the Sonic the Hedgehog universes, Julie-su the Echinda (first shown in the Archie!Knuckles comic), Princess Sally Acorn, and Bunnie Rabbot (both originally from the SatAM cartoon). All 3 of them are shown in thier current Archie incarnations. I always liked these 3 for thier personalities, they weren't just 'damsel-in-distress' bait, and they gained some depth in the comics; said depth has been sliced in half the last few years, but I digress (and pray to get back to basics)....
The Soldier: Julie-su was a part of an extreme pro-technology group called the Dark Legion, and is a fighter through and through, trained in hand to hand combat and weaponry. Heck, she even socked Knuckles one in her first appearance. Unfortunately, she's become little more than a clingy girlfirend as of late. (which PISSES me of to no end, she's my favorite!!)
The Princess: After years of being more rebel leader than heir to the throne, Sally's been hit with the true nature of her bloodline and what it requires. Going from the head of several operations with the Freedom Fighters to standing on the sidelines as a protected citizen, the transition hasn't been easy for her. Though, she DID get to whack Nack the Weasel in one issue (which made me oh-so-happy!)
The Southern Belle: Ah, Bunnie. The first girl in the Archie comics I saw wield a weapon and kick much tail with it. XD Her design's gone a bit Indiana Jones on us, but her fighting spirit hasn't waned too much at the whims of the writers/artists. A lil' charm and a good butt whuppin' does wonders for my jpy...but NEVER give her a weapon besides her robotic again....
A little side note: I have no beef over the Sonic girls from the games, I just prefer these 3 over Amy, Rouge and Tikal/Cream/whatever that bird-girl from Sonic Riders is called.
Another side note: Bunnie, Julie-su and Sally all belong to Archie/Sega/DiC/whoever else, but the picture is mine. ^^
