TRDL 2010 Series No. 5 - Amy Wong

When I first started participating in online illustration jams, one of the groups in which I became involved did a lot of cartoon and anime characters in their jams. I discovered almost immediately my only interest was in drawing these properties in my own style, not mimicking the style of the animation or what have you. Flash forward to today, it’s the same here with Amy Wong, one of the secondary characters on Futurama. I treated the character as a model sheet for my own costuming, and went that route, Asian girl, pink bare midriff sweatsuit, etc. However, I did give her very stylized locks of hair to nod back to the cartoon, and I kept the big clunky boots off to soften it as a pinup girl. The aircraft fuselage graphics are supposed to be saying ‘robot killers’ but one never really knows with Google Translate. Ha.

Please enjoy.
