Original meme by ChicoChikorita
and Amy the Jigglypuff's application:
Just a cute short break from this streak of comics~. I'm not sure how Cecil got the idea for this meme (apparently it was just...a random idea?), but I'm glad he did, because it now gives me the excuse to experiment with "what would Amy look like at different evolutionary stages"? Yes, I've decided to design her both as an Igglybuff and as a Wigglytuff. While some of you older watchers might already have seen Amy as an Igglypuff in Shadows of Memories Part 1
and Part 2,
I figured that an update was in order, because YEEEESH, her hair is too tiny for my tastes in those comics!
As for her Wigglytuff form, the story behind that is a lot more interesting. Normally I wouldn't dream of thinking about what Amy would look like as a Wigglytuff in a million years because for one, I don't plan on evolving her to begin with, for another, I just like the way Jigglypuffs look more than Wigglytuffs, and for a third, every time I've tried to draw her as one just made her end up like a hundred times crappier than her Jigglypuff form.
Turns out that when it comes to this sort of thing (or ANY character design), all you have to do to make a crappy design great and capture the spirit of the same character is to draw, draw, draw, draw, and try out as many ideas as you can! In fact, the exact same accessories that work perfectly well on Jigglypuff Amy look horrible on her Wigglytuff form due to the, ahem, elongated ears and body, so sometimes, there needs to be a change-up in accessories, and it wasn't until Cecil suggested just giving her those small bows on her ears like the ones on her wedding dress
that I found a breakthrough. That, and basing her off of Mokona Modoki from the Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle series wasn't a bad idea either~.
I'll probably still think about it some more if Amy will ever actually evolve, as I do like her as a Jigglypuff too. Guess we'll see what she decides later on~.(And yeah, I've decided to give her the exact same central hair curl in both of these forms as her Jigglypuff form because I felt that curl style suited her by far the best.)
