Many Media Amy by DJ-David-Jordan Many Media Amy by DJ-David-Jordan
So, as many Sonic Fans may have noticed (Or at least the older ones perhaps) Amy has undergone several changes through her lifetime as a character, though this is also very dependant on which Media your looking at. But for the sake of this picture I am looking over Amy Rose as a whole in character.
So we have, 'Modern' Amy Rose, 'Classic' Amy Rose or as you will Rosey the Rascal, The Manga version (I am unsure if her name was Amy in the media or not, but this is the look to the female in it or at least from the best referance I could find, more information from people that know more about the subject please feel free to leave it below in the comments, I'd love to know more.), and Fleetway Amy or Sonic the Comic Amy.
Personally, I like all the designs. Each has something to it that I'm like 'That really works.' I also noticed that each design has green in it, different shades different parts. Modern's eyes are green, classic with the green shirt, Manga with the skirt, and Fleetway with a skirt as well (Though Fleetway Amy is prone to clothes changing alot through the comic, most referances have her in the green skirt I drew on her here something green cargo looking pants as well.)
I have never drawn, Classic, Manga or Fleetway Amy before so I hope I did rather well on them. I wasn't going for copying the style in which each came from just their designs. No I didn't do any of her multi-verse spin offs from the Archie Series because that would just get annoying after a while, sorry.
And no, I'm not a huge Amy fan, yes I like the character as I do all the characters involved in all the Sonic Media types, but I mostly did this for fun. I am planning on doing a Sally Acorn version sort of thing as well.
The background roses you see wasn't done by my really, it was a brush type in my art program and I found it fitting enough.
I'll be posting the singles of each of these girls on my Tumblr so if you want go look at them there. To much a hassle to do it on here. Anyway I think I covered my bases here.

I think, at one point, Amy was supposed to be called Sally. But I forget if that's the manga version or just a "misprint" in the Sonic CD manual. (I know the name is in the Sonic CD manual, since I have it)

It was either a misprint or misunderstanding I believe.

Awesome! I didn't knew about the one in the manga, only the other tree. And also, in the early issues from the Archie Comics, Amy looked different, almost as classic Amy, but her spikes and clothes were a little different.

Also, do you know where to read the manga? xD
DJ-David-Jordan Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah yes early Archie Amy looks like what is now known as Rosey the Rascal within the Sonic Archie series. Sadly I do not have any idea where to read the manga. Or if there is even a translated version out there.

you're awesome :thumbsup:

Well I am glad you like it so much. ^^ Thank you.

Ah, Manga Amy.

The Manga she was in were published by Shogakukan between 1992 and 1993, and they are indeed official. Emii (Romanisation of Amy. There's a reason why there's an E on her jumper) started off with that look in the first few strips and is the one most people associate with the Manga. However, later into 1992, the Manga changed its look and Amy ended up resembling her classic self (bear in mind that this was before Sonic CD came out, so this was a prelude to that).

And stuff.

Oh. Well I am glad that you knew a good deal on her, thanks for the information twas very informational and fun to know.

Very interesting idea. I never noticed it, but that's cool how you picked up that just about every version of Amy has green on her to some degree or another. That'll probably be burned into my brain as one of her most important character traits across media.

Nice job with the poses. Each one catches an essence of the characters and gives us an idea of what their personalities are like. Very nice.

Thank you for letting us feature this in our gallery at #S-S-S-S-S-Squad! If you're interested and have time, we're holding our first contest now through January 31st. If your want to see the rules and prizes, look no further than this [link].

Well I am glad you think so. Yes it only really took me a moment of looking into my stored up referances to see it. Another common trait each has, they all have some sort of hair piece, exsample: Modern has a headband as well as the Fleetway, Classic has a tied headband sorta thing and the manga version has a bow. Though I am unsure if the Fleetway version always has the headband or not.

I am very touched by your comment it really does make me glow knowing someone really liked my work and really looked at it to catch the smaller details and such, as far as poses as things go. You are very kind.

And thank you for having an interest in my art enough to want it to be show cased in your group. I'll have a look at the contest and see if I'll enter. Thank you for the heads up.
