Iron Dominion Queen Takes Pawn by kureejiilea Iron Dominion Queen Takes Pawn by kureejiilea
I did not draw this!

So :iconsuraida-chan: and I thought Iron Nicole looked awesome. And then :iconsuraida-chan: did an absolutely badass sketch. And then I thought it should be coloured.

...and then I went on two vacations and got busy with things and it took me far longer than it should have to get this done.

Yeah.

Go check out :iconsuraida-chan:'s gallery, because she's awesome and deserves it.

Okay so this is years old but I actually saw this in the fanart section of one of the comics a looooong time ago, and it inspired me to draw better. I just happened on it by accident today and wanted to let you know this piece is badass, and seriously shaped how I developed my art and coloring style. Thanks so much!

I share :iconjimma1300:'s sentiment on how emotionally distraught it was to see Nicole hacked by the Iron Queen, who was a very effective and well-written female villain; she was tough, calculating, a bit of the Wicked Queen in her, backed up by an army of minions and no fool to using power. In contrast, the following issue dealing with Sonic and Sally rescuing Nicole had some powerful moments, including Tails' rebuke to Kahn about not losing hope to save someone and bring them back into the light, while there was still life... Something both Jimma1300 and I still hold for another character in the comics who is walking down an evil path, albeit willingly. The outcome turned out very touching with the restored Nicole and Sally embracing, even as the former was back in her Iron Dominion attire to pose as a spy. The whole issue in general also possessed a very Tron-esque atmosphere and this artwork also contains the same element, especially in the blue circuitry surrounding both Iron Nicole and the Queen. This artist should expand on that in a parody manner, with Nicole and the Iron Queen taking the roles of Rinzler and CLU 2, respectively. (Sorry for any spoilers.) The Iron Nicole issues were some of the very best, having those elements of a good character falling (if reluctantly) and being redeemed. Now if only Mina could understand that...

Curious, Seen a Copy of This in The "Sonic-Grams" Fan-Art Section at the Back of Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog Issue 214. Might have been in Another One Too.. Submitter Notes From Noele C. Aleah B. (Arizona, Ontraio).

Just FYI.

Congrats on getting this featured in the comic! By the way, I'm loving the Twilight Princess/TRON lines on the hands. I don't know why I'm such a sucker for those, but there you have it.

Couldn't they have keep her like this longer? I mean, it's like Archie is allergic to long term mind control in their story arches.

And it would have been interesting to see more of her warped personality.

You two always do such wonderful collaborations. They're a rare treat, but oh-so-delicious. Not that I'm licking my monitor or anything, you know, because that's just damn creepy.

Also, it tastes like plastic and all-purpose cleaner. Not that I've checked or anything.
