... or Echidna-BAT in Maia's case x3
After watching the awesome Sonic Mania Adventures episode with Knuckles (it's my favourite XD) I felt like drawing something cute with him and a Classic version of my character for him, Maia~ :3
I like to think that in this picture, Knuckles is busy guarding the emerald as always but Maia soon comes along, finding herself lost on the island. She approaches Knuckles and the two stare at one another, surprised that there was another of their kind! Anddd the two become smitten, natually
Knuckles (c) SEGA
Maia (c) Me!
