The Mona Leela by Kaynime The Mona Leela by Kaynime
I thought of this idea on the bus - its probably already been done but I still wanted to have a go!

I'm challenging myself to include more backgrounds in my pictures - this one isn't brilliant, but it does look futurama-ry to me, and its an improvement over no background at all :D

I also suck at guns :(

I love Futurama, so it was nice to do more fan art of one of my fave shows!
:la:

Critiques and comments are most welcome! :hug:

the lovely Leela belongs to Matt Greoning :woohoo:

I hope you guys like!

Whatever is she thinking about? Can't be "Fry's an idiot", she doesn't look angry enough.

This picture was drawn almost 3 years ago before Leela had been seen in a different style in the show, so I'd only seen her with black irises - I just picked Green because i thought it would compliment the purple in her hair :) x

Love it!
The gun looks like it shoots foam disks.
My critique is consider adding darker shading for the skin. Keep the current level of shading and add in smaller amounts of darker color.
I was going to comment the nose looks weird meeting the bottom of the eye, but then I remembered that's her character design! It shouldn't have to make sense.

I thought so too - it was awkward to decide where the bridge of the nose should end haha! Thank you for the critique - shading is one of the many things I'm working to improve on - I think here I was kinda afraid of it being too dark, but went the wrong way instead :)

I went through art college and I still don't shade and paint like I should. Working on the same thing too.

Admittedly I've never watched Futurama, however, knowing of course what the characters look like, this definitely is one of, if not the best rendering of her that I've seen to date. Great job. And yes, the resemblance to Leonardo DaVinci's work is unmistakable.

Frankly that's just about bang-on perfect. The only (of very few) "Mona Leela" pictures that actually does something more than paste Leela's face on the original imagery. The background is wonderful and does its job just fine (backgrounds only have to show as much as they need and nothing more).

And the smile. Oh lord, the smile... :)
