This first one is a drawing I did of the Planet Express trio as they might appear if they were a Japanese anime:



And this one is a simpler effort that I inked and coloured in microsoft paint after scanning:

fucking, fucking, fucking awesome.

The anime picture is so good....I might try one. Edit: tried one, and it sucked.

Also, welcome to peel. You'll enjoy it.

Hey, thanks heaps, I'm sure I will. In the past the only TV forums I've really gotten into have been X-Files ones, but my recent purchase of the Futurama complete series boxset has rekindled my old obsession with this show.

Okay, here's one I just quickly threw together now. It's how I imagine the three principle characters would look in ten years.
Bender has traded his old arms for some heavy-duty industrial models and his class has been redesignated to 'crusher'.
The scar on Fry's face is a result of Bender getting used to the new limbs. His right arm was lost when Zoidberg tried to give him a vaccination shot - it's now been replaced with a cybernetic one that's kind of like a swiss army arm that can unfold with all kinds of tools and weapons. He's taken to wearing a long coat and now smokes.
Leela has changed her hairstyle and gotten a little tattoo of a one-eyed devil.

Bender meets Fox Mulder from The X Files.
No real point to it, I'm just a big X-Files fan...

Neat. *saves pictures*

Seriously, I like your drawings very much. Especially Leela in the pic before looks just great. I need more of this. Mooooore!
Also, Fry's coat has style! ;-)

Keep on doing this great work!

Haha, thanks! Fry's trendy coat is based on a few of my own actually. I'll throw a few more into the mix over the next week or two.

Ahh, you give me too much credit. I love that. Thank you for the kind words and I'll be sure to produce more of the same. Also, I've started a little fanfic too, so I'll put that up as well, perhaps with custom-made illustrations to go with. I have a few months off work soon so it'll be something to keep me occupied.

Ah.. Todd "Spawn" MacFarlane.
You know, stealing his talent, it would explain a lot.. Especially the toaster bit.  tongue

I like the way you shade, that you get the proportions just right (which I never do) and your mastery of foreshortening.   love

More please!  big grin

I wish I could draw!!!

This is the only time I'm going to ask this question, no one even has to answer me, and it's not directly aimed at anyone:
Why do people draw Fry as a really good looking guy in other styles? The show makes it clear he's just an average Joe.

Thank you, my picky side is satisfied, now.

Awww, thank you. I don't know what foreshortening is, but it sounds professional so I like it. I'll add any new ones I do to this thread and/or to the thread I eventually make for my in-progress fanfic.

That's a very interesting point, and I am glad you asked.
The first and formost reason would probably be that he is the 'hero', regardless of all failings, and as a hero there are certain pre-set societal standards that are programmed into us at a subconscious level by thousands of years worth of myth and legend. The hero is strong and noble and looks better than a dog's breakfast. This is difficult to avoid without a conscious effort, and I never make any conscious effort for anyone dagnammit.
The second reason is, I think, that he's not really that bad. I'm a straight male so I'm not much of a judge, but despite being a bit pasty and stooped there wasn't really that much wrong with Fry's appearence... it was more the fact that he was an unintelligent loser with poor personal hygiene and no motivation. I did try to make him a bit scruffy looking to reflect that. His clothes are wrinkled and he has patchy stubble... and I retained his crooked nose.
But I like the guy too much to make him look ugly. He's a loser and all, sure, but he's still a cool guy. Actually, as with a lot of my male anime-style characters, that take on Fry actually looks quite a bit like me... which might say a lot about my own subconscious yearning for heroism.

...I'll shut up now.

Also, before you do it too many times, the mods don't like it when you double post. So limit yourself to 1 post in a row, unless of coiurse you're bumping a thread.  smile

Eeeeeew..... here's some nauseating romantic garbage from the same fool who brought you the above pictures. I disgust myself. To think, a man who spurns human relationships and is completely unmoved by the emotional plight of real flesh and blood humans, can be touched by the romance of a pair of cartoon characters.
Bah!
Anyway... here it is. The pencil grade was wrong so it's a bit light... and Fry's fingers look stupid.
...What ho? 'Stupid fingers'? Bwahaha!

Oh ta, I'll bear that in mind, thanks. I'm just in the habit of replying to each thing that someone says to me individually. I'll try to combine responses into a single post in future.

If you want to add something to your already posted post use this little button. Very useful!  tongue

As for your art it's very nice. Yes, hands (and feet) can be difficult to draw. The pencil grad looks fine to me. Then again, I'm a hack when it comes to drawing so what do I know about it!?  smile

Speed, own style, can switch styles, spot-on scaling, proportions and shading...

I'm in awe!

Great set of pics. I'm not really a fan of anime, but that's a great take on Leela - her one eye makes fitting her nose in a real challange, but she looks great in your version! Much kudos.

Thanks for the pointers.
That last pic I was drawing the characters at a larger scale than I'm used to (close-up). Usually I'm more of a full-body illustrator, especially in that style. I like to challenge myself.

Anime's not for everyone. Even I am picky with it (I only enjoy high-quality realistic anime like Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion, as opposed to kiddy stuff like Dragonball and Pokemon). But you're damn right about Leela's nose. It took me ages to figure a knack of drawing her without making her look ugly.

I live to give. Thank you. Personally I think the first one is best. Makes sense because that's the one I took my time on. The others I've kind of rushed to get on here. I need to slow down a bit - quality over quantity.

I like the shippy one too, but I'm ashamed of it. I'm a man... I'm not supposed to have a romantic bone in my body... what's happening to me... what are these strange 'feelings'?

Lol, very nice shippy one! I love the detail.
Don't be ashamed, lots of people have gone ga-ga over shipping Fry and Leela.
Nice trio picture too. Leela's shoulder seems a little bulky though.
Could you colour one of your anime pics? Not that I don't love the sketchy glory, I just want to see how you'd do it with shading and such.

Mmm... not sure how well I'd go at that. I'm not good at coloring... at all. I'd have to use a slightly different technique, possibly inking in place of shading, because lead pencils and color pencils don't go too well together in my experience.
My art supplies aren't the best. Do you have any pointers on what materials are best for color work?

I always colour things on the computer... in fact I tend to just draw things straight into the computer.
Paints maybe? The brush strokes can add texture.
I might try my hand at doing some... there is this problem of where I'm going to find colour paint  hmpf

Well the only thing I can do on the computer is use the paintbucket tool in MS Paint to fill flat areas. My anime style is a bit too detailed for that and I don't have any fancy photoshop type programs... not that I would know how to use them even if I did.

But paint... yes, I never thought of using paint... oddly. Strange how the mind works. In any case, I'll investigate options over the next few weeks. If I don't post any color works then it means I tried and they looked shite.

BTW - I'm writing and illustrating a fanfic here: http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/4-001395-1/

No no no, you got the anime style all wrong. In a proper anime Leela's waist would be the size of her wrist and her breasts would be bigger then her head. Her legs shoud also make up over 3/4ths of her total height.
