First, hello!  I'm sure you know, I'm new in these parts.

I've also become a bit adicted to Futurama so as I was contimplating what FarScape chara would look like in Anime (Long story), I thought of doing Leela.

I'm used to doing Anime (you can see it on my website, if you're curious), so this is Leela with an Anime twist.  I've never drawn a Simpsons/Futurama chara before.  hmpf




Any less then caustic opinions welcome.

I'll now go pout in the corner like Zoidberg seeking approval   cool

Your technique is very good.  I enjoy pencil/charcoal drawing above all.  The thing is, with an anime background, you have yet to get the "feel" of Futurama style characters.  The thing with "Groeningesque" drawing is nailing the huge overbite that all the characters possess.  All in all a good yummy drawing.  Keep 'em coming  smile

Welcome to PEEL, Yorokobi.  I think its pretty cool.  Would have liked to seen more shading with a charcoal drawing, but thats just me.  Like Spice Weasel said...overbite, overbite, overbite. But how you get that in with a anime style drawing is beyond me...lol

I like your technique as well, like Spice Weasel said!  Do more!  Or better yet... do Bender! <33

Never mind those two, Yorokobi. I think it's a very cool drawing. The hair looks great, the face maybe a bit too round-ish. Keep them coming.  big grin

Welcome to PEEL. Enjoy it here.

WOW!  Ok, Atariboy went WAY Manga on them...  And they look damn fine too. 

My anime slant is more or less an accident, because that's all I've ever really drawn.  Even so, I didn't think it looked that bad, so I decided to share.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Spice Weasel hit the nail on the head perfectly.  It's funny to watch my girlfriend, who can draw any Marvel character, struggle trying to draw 'Groeningesque' characters.  I too, have given her the simplest advice: Just imagine a really nasty overbite and you have your character.  She's still learning on that, but I'm nowhere near as good as her in drawing overall.  I'm almost done drawing a portrait of a tiger and will have her scan it for all your viewings.  It almost looks photo-realistic.

It's tough to jump styles.  I mean I did this, and I think it's pretty damn good.
(Edit: This is an original character)
and this
Admitedly Dorothy kind sucks in that pic....

But I couldn't do that in Groening style...

At least, not without practice.  I've got another pose of Leela in my head, as well as a group shot I may tackle someday.

The group idea is a "behind the scenes" type shot that's been done for other shows (maybe this one too) where you can see them out of character, see the sets, the lights on the sound stage, etc.

For that I have to do many characters, so it will be some time coming....
