Cringe at the first because, well she was a recolour, what do you expect?? A recolour of Sonic with wild green pants, And the second one was just a weird school girl Amy. (2007-2008)
Once I designed her as a dragon I was a little happier with her, she was different. And I think this is about the time her popularity grew a little on DA. After a bit I redefined her look by adding horns and taking out the black marks around her eyes and fixing her outfit. (2009-2011)
2012 was the year of the Dragon and I was thinking that, Yeah I had her design for a while now, why not change it up a bit, look more dragon-y. And thus we have the next one, a huge plate on her head, 2 huge horns, ears are gone, and a more asian inspired outfit (I still personally love that look). But it wasn't long after that I wanted to cover her up more and give her boots (rip cute outfit) and I thought that one less plate on her head and added two "sonic" spines . (2012)
I did a complete wipe of her outfit a few months later because I just wasn't completely happy with it, that's when I came up with the "aviator outfit", I got rid of the spines and plates and redrew her with crazy fluffy windswept fur. I felt that this was more like her. And just symbolised her growing up, She had changed And this was to be her new outfit. But I also had Anthro penny evolving as well, they were technically the same character and as I changed Anthro Penny's colours, I also changed Mobian Penny's. She eventurally became more pink, green eyes, red horns/wings and freckles. (2012-2015)
And now we have her current look in 2017. Just about identical to 2015, except her horns, I still wanted her to be slightly in sync with anthro Penny (despite now they should be two different characters) I adjusted her horns to curl around to her face, adjusting her colour to not be so bright, and Renaming her from Penny to Cadet.
Thanks for 10 years, Cadet
