Li'l Velma by MJBivouac Li'l Velma by MJBivouac
I was recently commissioned to draw some characters in a cute Anime style...something I don't normally have a lot of interest in, but where money is concerned I'll do anything short of personal humiliation or murder. Anyway, after trying to get a handle on the drawing style I found myself wondering how Velma might look in that style. As it turned out, I think she's quite cute.

Well I remember Velma from the original 1969 premier, and I have always thought she was a bit chunky under that sweater. I try to reflect that in my Velma art. Much of which is NOT suitable for DA. But if you're interested in seeing any of it....let me know. I can LINK you.
These days other artist always draw her either too thin, or like inflated! She is neitehr! She's has a nice 'pooch', full thighs and a nice big butt! I fear the thinner MYSTERY INC. Velma is influencing a younger generation, hence the THIN/anime-style Velma that I see much too often.

Thank you... that was the idea. Some people have said that this Little Velma is better than the "Pup named Scooby Doo" version. Quite a compliment.

Awww, cute. I like the colouring. Very bright and shiny. Though it looks like lil' Velma is just hitting puberty. Either that or she's stuffing her bra. lol

word! Dont' doubt the anime style! haha. It's all about twisting the style and departing from the stereotype of big eyes and tiny tiny noses and making it your own. And you've done just that here. And call me crazy but I feel like you've done something in the way you color? Like, I'm noticing those streaks of highlight along her shoes and hair--very subtle usage and very effective. :nod: kudos :)

Gondee,
Thanks very much. It's nice when someone notices those little details that make such a big difference in a piece, but which rarely get noticed by most folks. It's so easy to just drop in flat colors inside an outline, or maybe add a single darker shade along an edge of an area to suggest the turning of form and/or shadow. But it's those subtle little highlights that can really give an image image.

"But it's those subtle little highlights that can really give an image punch." Is what that last line is supposed to read!

she's cute. Actually, she is the character whose appearance lends itself best to anime, as she looks somewhat "Asian."

Thanks Cathy. Isn't odd how Japanese cartoon characters have the largest eyes of any kind of cartoon characters?

And yet the Japanese have very small eyes. Weird.

My point exactly. To them Western eyes must seem colossal. Thanks for the comments. Hope life is treating you well.
