Come, See My Lovely Hammer
...when does a stylistic rendition of another's character cease to be
that character and instead be something different?
Yes this is Amy Rose. Yes, she is human. Yes, I am tired of the same god damn rendition every other artist does when they make her human. It isn't inventive and it isn't original - the same old, same old. Just a girl with pink hair in Amy's red dress.
Every official rendition of the character has brought its own intterpretation of her to the table. The "official" creation is a lovestruck girl who's out for the heart of one certain blue blur, but who more than anything else just wants to be noticed - puppy love notwithstanding. There's the damsel in distress she was introduced as, but even that girl was offered the ability to fight back with the hammer she had in every game but the one she was introduced. The European comic gave her a different weapon and a different ability - that of marksman and fletcher. The puppy love grew into a taunting sarcasm typical of British humor, but a sincere hope lingered in the back of the wisecracks.
Three different evolutions of the same character - three stories, three interpretations. Now I bring mine to the table.
