Yes! FemJesse has returned to Futurama fan art!!! Life is sweet again!  big grin

Gotta say I like the second one the best, even though I've seen it before. The other 2 are both great though. It's good to see you're still keeping up your usual quality of work, and it's even better to see that you're back!  smile

Thank you guys.  Venus couldn't have said it better.  I fell off the wagon.  Then I died of Cholera.  TheVoices had dysentary. He put naughty things on my tombstone... 
ANYWHO: Some info on the second picture since people are saying they like it.  It was supposedly the "last picture" I would post publicly.  It was going to be released to Leelazone exclusively, because Leandro Pardini contacted me using Deviantart.  The media is regular ink pen with layers of watercolors on a fibrous sketch book paper.  I'm so bad with watercolors that I buy cheap watery tube colors and expensive, thick white to layer over my mistakes.

Hey, I think the watercolor-ness is pretty good. Is the paper smudged or buckled?...Eh, doesn't matter. I really like the third one (although I've seen if before on dA). It's all moody and dark. Most depressing pun ever. :/

Who would have thought that this will happen: Jesse is back.   love

While you were away, things have changed at PEEL. Other things haven't changed: I still have my first art thread (open). I didn't have won PotM yet. Nurdy is still a red robot. Etc. ...

Back on topic: Very nice new art ...   smile

I just don't like the way you draw Leela's pony-tail. I know: Artistical freedom and what else not, but somehow the ponytail doesn't look right.

Beside of "that": Good artwork.

Phht.  Pitt Clemens is a skank.  Let EL have the anime adaption category.  I skank at anime.
I like the word skank.

Perhaps I'm egotistic now because I have the satisfaction of knowing that I get paid higher than minimum wage for my coloring skills on the weekdays, coloring Diggity the Dog.

Everybody knows how I feel about anime, and that's not going to change.  So let the anime artists have their glory.  Its a different kind of satisfaction than I get.  EL is good at what she does. Let her monopolize on that.  I have yet to see someone who's jeapordized my hold on the "realism" category.  And that is what I'm content with.

My real competitor is gone.  I don't know if he'll ever be back.  One of the most interesting relationships I've ever had, and also one of the shortest...

I don't always want to tell a story when I draw a picture... but I wind giving too much away. 
I haven't drawn Leela with a genuine smile for about a year.  I don't think I could.

I'm going to find a more relavent thread to get nostalgic in.

I'll tell you what I tell everyone.  It takes buttloads of patience.  You really just have to sit there and plot a scribble... and if you screw up you wind up erasing a whole limb.  The drawings take me around two hours usually... larger ones upwards of 4.  It doesn't come easily.

You've seen my realism Leela, I think. I decided the world would be better if I stuck to cartooning and still life  big grin

Hmm... dammit, maybe that's why my drawings suck. It usually takes about a total of 10 minutes or less. Unless I'm really drawing, not cartooning.

Jesse, as much as I admire your realistic work, I think I prefer the cartoon style stuff you do. You're always able to capture a certain sweetness in the facial expressions that always brings a smile to my face.

I think think he looks like an older version of fellow fanartist, Brian Hess.
 http://www.deviantart.com/view/8836962/

Of course it was him who brings it to my attention every time I post a realistic Fry drawing.

From the show I just kinda visualize what his face would look like, the nose and eye cavities are probably the most accurate things.  Having to give him a chin, I always try to give him a cleff.

Maybe it's just me, but I prefer the black and white sketch of Fry and Leela proposing rather than the colored version.  Maybe it's just personal taste, but when I saw the B&W, I thought "wow, that's good."

That's because color sucks.  You have the power to see the evil that color is...
Not everyone has this power.  You must use it wisely.

I have a question for you, FemJesse:
You use Microns, right? How do you get your inking lines so freakin' smooth and not crappy. Mine always turn out uneven and frayed looking.

Thanks darthmonkey and everyone who's "happy" to see me back, though I've never stopped drawing in my life, only temporarily stopped drawing Futurama related work. 

Shaucker, that depends on the grade of paper you're using.  Regular computer paper tends to bleed all over the place.  Sketchbook paper varies.  I mostly use my sketchbooks, but when I want really crisp lines, I use coated Epson paper that is intended for printers.  If you're going to use Epson paper... I'd recommend that you make some sketches in a book first and work really lightly the good paper.  The coating can be scratched if you press too hard with a pencil.

When looking for higher quality skethbook paper, feel the smoothness yourself.  If its smooth and white like printer paper, but thick enough not to bleed through (except with sharpie, they bleed through everything)  then you've got a good sketchbook.  As with everything, look for Acid free so your drawings don't yellow with time.

Edit: Also, gum erasers tend to stick to the coating on Epson paper, so be wary and don't press too hard erasing.

Edit Edit:  and actually TV was the one who turned me on to using Epson paper.  He usually used larger sizes like A2, then wound up pasting the scan together with a seam.
