Then the hologram exploded in her face, and their infamous rivalry began...
My first entry for Jimmy X Cindy Week: [link] The theme is "First Meeting". I've always had this crazy idea that when Jimmy and Cindy first met as itty bitty widdle kids, they actually liked each other a lot. It wasn't until later, after Jimmy's screwy inventions had caused mayhem in Cindy's life / upstaged her in school, that she began to resent him.
Here we have him presenting her with a holographic flower...you know those cute pics of little kids kissing or giving each other presents? Well, this is the JN universe equivalent.
Because why give a girl a real flower when you can spend hours in the lab crafting a glowing thermonuclear timebomb that's sure to go horribly, horribly awry?
Jimmy's outfit inspired by and dedicated to Happy birthday, hun!
J/C Week Themes :
Monday, August 22 - First Meeting Tuesday, August 23 - Career Wednesday, August 24 - Fairy Tale Thursday, August 25 - Castaway Friday, August 26 - Experiment Saturday, August 27 - Dress-up Sunday, August 28 - Not as planned
People have been requesting this forever, so...here are the suits that the kids get after stopping to have the Desperado repaired at the space station Colored quickly because you all wanted it so SO MANY ANATOMY PROBLEMS, OH GOD I HATE ALL MY ART RIGHT NOW...
Fun fact: I am really, really bad at drawing kicking poses (and lifted/foreshortened legs in general). So, in a stroke of stupidity on my part, I decided to practice sketching a whole bunch of kicking poses from shutterstock. The majority looked horribly mutated and were completely unsuitable for exposure to the light of day, but I kind of liked these two and so decided to color them. Aaaaand it's Cindy Vortex and Libby Folfax! Because I clearly don't have enough Jimmy Neutron fanart in my gallery already Anyway, I'm not sure why I decided to give Libby her old clothes and hairstyle...it just looked better somehow. Also yay I finally drew Cindy in her karate outfit even if her face looks weirdly deformed... SWEET MERCIFUL SLEEP HOW I CRAVE YOU
EDIT: got rid of the background because it was burning my eyes
I planned on putting that with this picture, but it ruined the composition. And I don't think anyone'd guess what their careers are in the above pic. :/
Erm..so I think Jimmy will be a professor when he grows up, because..well...just because.. |D And Cindy will pursue the creative field (let's say she's a graphic designer or a freelance artist?), since she's waay better at that than Jimmy (that way she can taunt his lack of skill xD). Loljk. Maybe to prevent competition in the scientific field, since I think they've matured enough to credit their own strengths. :\ Or I dunno.

Then I suddenly realize.. Jimmy's clothes look like Spongebob's
A year ago I sketched up some concepts for a high-school aged version of the JN gang: That should have been the end of it, but then Keith Alcorn (the co-creator of Jimmy Neutron, and my buddy on facebook) requested a teen version of Bolbi...and this happened. High school redesigns of a whole bunch of the minor characters From left to right, they are: Elke Ekberg, Betty Quinlan, Bolbi Stroganovsky, Nick Dean, and Britney Tenelli.
And since I KNOW you want to waste your time reading imaginary bios:
Elke Elke divides her time between Sweden and the U.S. During the school year, she attends her local gymnasieskola, but from June to August she works at a llama farm just outside Retroville and spends her free time hanging with Carl and his friends. Elke absolutely loves animals, especially llamas and alpacas, and she dreams of someday becoming a veterinarian. Her most prized possession is the yellow llama purse that Carl gave her during their sophomore summer - she's even been known to coordinate whole outfits around it. Elke looks forward to life after graduation, when she can move to America for college, and be closer to all the friends she's made during her visits (special thanks to twisted-vision for inspiring me to give Elke a pixie cut).
Betty You know, Betty gets a bad rap from fans, and I don't think it's deserved. She doesn't seem like a malicious person, and it makes no sense that people consistently write her as a maneater/seducer/conniving witch. I picture her style as mature, feminine, and classy, maybe with a 50's Hollywood flair. Since Betty's a year older than the rest of the gang, she would've already graduated by the time they hit senior year. She's super gorgeous, and all the high school AND college boys want to date her - but she's one of those chicks who "found Jesus" in high school, so now she's against teen dating and premarital shenanigans, haha. She's an active member of the local church and spends a lot of time going door to door bringing people "the good news" - and she has a lot more success than the less-hot members of her mission . Betty volunteers at the Retroville hospital as well, and she hopes to attend nursing school in a year or two.
Bolbi THE KINGPIN, BABY Bolbi is tubby, bug-eyed, and incredibly bizarre...but he's found acceptance and even adoration among the members of the drama club, who respect him for his acting talents and celebrate his weirdness as "avant garde". After high school, Bolbi plans to return to Backhairistan and take over the family goat-herding business. His fashion style can best be described as "used car salesman chic", with the occasional sweater vest to spice things up. There's a bit of a rumor floating around Retroville High that Bolbi miiiight be playing for the other team, but if so, he's not out of the closet yet.
Nick Years later, Nick is still Retroville's resident bad boy. He's cool, he's sexy, and he knows it. Now that he has his driver's license, he's upgraded from skateboards to motorcycles, and he's been in and out of trouble for skipping class to go smoke cigarettes behind the bleachers. Nick has mad skills with the ladies, and he always has at least two hotties buzzing round him at any given moment...he's even been known to charm female teachers into overlooking his tardiness and unfinished homework. Because Nick is so concerned with appearances and is so adept at coasting through life on his looks, he doesn't have any real goals set for himself after high school. It remains to be seen whether he'll be able to get his act together and move past his narcissistic loafing.
Britney Since her appearances in the original show were mostly be limited to back-up singing for Libby and Cindy, I've surmised that Britney is one of those chicks who always seems to play second fiddle to someone else. She's known throughout Retroville High for her belly shirts, valley-girl accent, and tendency to sprinkle gratuitous "likes" into her sentences. She's a member of the cheerleading team, but despite her best efforts, has never been able to make team captain. Britney is totally devoted to Nick, but of course he's too cool to date only one girl - hopefully she'll wise up and find someone who will treat her with a bit more respect. Britney likes music, reality TV, and sports, and she hopes (perhaps unrealistically) to one day cheer for a professional football team.
Hope you like!

Burp Boy, Invisible Sista, Special Girl, Vibrating Lad, and...HulkJimmy? Together they are Retroville's greatest (incompetently destructive) crime-fighting force, the N Men! I took some artistic liberties on the costumes because, well, I'm just awesome like that. Also, am I the only one who thinks Jimmy looks like he got a bad spray-on tan?
