EDIT: My niece says the cuffs idea is perfect and to make them pop out like they do with other characters so yeah. THIS will be my final design. :'D /EDIT
Vest and hoodie? Well, I don't think she's trying to make a fashion statement here. Still looked cute enough to me and yes that hoodie sure stretches, doesn't it? Inspired by my old design and the newer apparent Archie redesign... here's... yet another design! I know most of you won't like it because you don't like her with clothes but well.. Guess I just don't care to hear about it? Yeah, thx~
Tis the final design for my fan comic :'D Excited.
Guess I'll talk a little about the inspiration for her. In the older design I had for Sally(I always loved clothing her but had no problem with her being 'nekkid' since... she's an animal) I wanted to update her to something that was still comfortable and tomboyish. Thus, a hoodie. I didn't care too much for keeping shorts on her and with this newer redesign they thought it was the way to go... but honestly? I always felt that Sal would be the type to wear pants or leggings. Something sleek, comfortable and something she could get down and dirty with(get your mind out of the gutter). She is young, that's true, but she was never the sporty type. She's mature for her age and a brain! So I wanted to keep her looking young but mature at the same time while also keeping to the whole tomboy princess routine. When I first saw her as a child, she was hacking into the system and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. XD She may not have been strong or fast like Sonic but she found her own way to do things. So instead of having her hood the same color as her vest I wanted it to be black to minimize the amount of blue. In fact, I didn't want too much of one color on her, she needed to be balanced out especially considering her own fur color and how her outfit would clash with Sonic's fur. Plus with a darker color added she could remain feminine in her own way and still sneak around. Not much use in today's comics, probably, but I am basing her off of Satam. I love enhancing colors with black and white goes great with that soooo... that's where I went with the colors. Also, her boots and vest combo are pretty iconic so I didn't want to lose those. It may not look awesome but I feel that it works. Nicole being on her boot is a cute idea but I felt she'd be more protected and more accessible if she were able to strap her around her waist. Gloves... Yeah, I tried white gloves but it just doesn't feel right on her. Fingerless gloves just seem cool and edgy without going over the top. I couldn't leave them black though because of the color balanced and so my niece had the idea to add the white cuffs. In the end I think it helps to mesh her with the SEGA look without being too SEGA.....ish. I dunno. It's just something I really love but if you don't like it, that's fine! We all have our own ideas on these things and I don't mind if you don't like it one bit. I just don't wish to hear straight out bashing, k? Criticism is one thing, crap of the mouth is another. Thanks for reading this if you guys made it this far! Thank you for all your words good or bad and for your support!
Sally belongs under the watchful eye of SEGA. And archie. And Dic. But mostly SEGA.
drew the outfit here:
:'D I'm so happy!
