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!

For day six of JxC week [link] , I decided to draw Jimmy and Cindy dressed up as figures from Greek mythology! I don't know about you, but when I watched Clash of the Titans as a kid, I couldn't help feeling bad for Medusa...she's such a tragic figure; cursed, feared, alone, and constantly hunted by nasty men who want to kill her and cut off her head.
In my version of the myth, Perseus falls in love with Medusa when he glimpses her reflection off his shield. She returns his affections, but because even a passing glance would kill him, she commands him to leave rather than risk turning him to stone. Determined to be with her at any cost, he does the only thing he can think of - he cuts out his own eyes so that he can remain by her side without fear of ever looking upon her. (Or, if you want the kid-friendly version, he puts on a blindfold and never takes it off, and the blood is simply a metaphor for his sacrifice).
I started watching Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ ironically But then I kept watching And now I actually kinda *whispers* like it
Anyway, this is Syo Kurusu, or as I like to call him, "Barrettes"...my most favoritest character and #3 on my UtaPri Bangability Index Yes such a thing exists. He's just such an adorable little fountain of pint-sized rage, like one of those itty bitty dogs who thinks they're a ferocious Doberman Pinscher. I wanna steal his stupid hat, put him in a headlock, and give him a noogie
I originally drew him with his book, but it looked...out of place, so I just added some runes to represent the letters in the book. The rest of the magic-y light stuff....yeah, not sure Just thought it looked cool.
EDIT: I combined the pics into one massive deviation - click twice for full view!
Merry Christmas to my Secret Santa, the lovely and generous ~Katia711! Back in August, she asked me to draw the cast of Jimmy Neutron as Hogwarts students, so when I got her as my SS, I knew what I had to do
As I may've mentioned before, I don't like crossovers that involve the characters from one story meeting characters from another (like what happened in the Jimmy Timmy Power Hours). However, I LOVE crossovers that involve taking the characters from one story and re-imagining them in the world of another (awhile back, I drew a lineart of the JN gang as benders in the Avatarverse, for example). Anyway, this is a series of portraits featuring Jimmy, Sheen, Carl, Cindy, and Libby as wizards and witches in the not-too-distant future of the Harry Potter world (cell-shaded because my wriiiiist). Since they live in America and not the UK, they attend Hogwarts U., a branch of Hogwarts founded in the U.S. shortly before the Salem Witch Trials (it's on the fanon wiki, which exists for exactly this sort of nonsense ). The characters are in their 3rd year in these pics, so that makes them about 13(ish?) years old. I used Pottermore info to create character profiles for the gang, which I've included below. If you've bothered reading this far, then you're probably keen on this whole concept, so let's nerd it up together!
JIMMY Sorting Hat Says: Every generation of witches and wizards has its share of magical pioneers. Some invent techniques and devices that benefit people for centuries to come. Others accidentally blow up the lunchroom. Jimmy, as you may have guessed, fits into both of these categories. While he might seem like a shoe-in for Ravenclaw (being a genius and all), his propensity for show-boating heroism lands him square in the Gryffindor camp. If there's one thing he's good at, it's saving the day...even if, more often than not, he's the one who imperiled everyone in the first place Wand: Walnut with Dragon Heartstring core, 12 inches, unyielding Pet: Barn Owl Family Background: Magical mother and Muggle father. Both are loving and supportive, though perhaps a bit out of their depth when it comes to their gifted son. Best Subject(s): Transfiguration and Arithmancy. Jimmy is a natural when it comes to numbers and logic, and he has a special knack for transfiguration (though there was that one time he accidentally gave himself a hamster head...but we don't talk about that). In fact, he has top marks in all of his classes - except for Potions, where Cindy has him beat...but that's only because he can't resist the urge to “improve” the recipes. Hobbies and Extracurriculars: When he's not doing schoolwork, he spends most of his time hanging out with (and occasionally experimenting on) his best friends Carl and Sheen. His favorite extracurricular activity is Dueling Club, which he founded along with his arch rival, Cindy Vortex. As the only two members of the club, Jimmy and Cindy get together once a week to hex the crap out of each other. They've developed a complicated system of self-imposed regulations, and there's a lot at stake...because each week the winner gets to issue a single order, and the loser has to do anything, and I mean anything, the winner says. Their rivalry is common knowledge throughout the student population, and other 3rd years have been known to place bets on the next week's winner. A couple of the older pupils have a bet of their own going: namely, how long it'll take Jimmy and Cindy to use the winner's order as an excuse to start snogging. At his worst, Jimmy is: A self-important show-off and an overly-analytical buzzkill. Because he's overconfident, he frequently acts without thinking, and he occasionally lets his temper get the better of him. When he fails to foresee the consequences of his actions, disaster and mayhem are sure to follow. At his best, Jimmy is: Courageous, devoted, and high-minded. Despite his occasional lack of judgment, he is always able to correct his mistakes before anyone is seriously hurt. He excels at solving problems under pressure, and he has repeatedly shown himself capable of overcoming great danger. Random Fact: He developed a hair-elevation spell to make himself appear taller. Scarf of Sexual Preference Says: Heterosexual
CINDY Sorting Hat Says: Cindy is ambitious, clever, and not above manipulating people to her own ends. She yearns for success above all else, and she works herself to the bone trying to attain it. Opinionated and driven, Cindy is also a gifted athlete, and she possesses a brash streak and a willingness to stick her neck out that most of her fellow Slytherins lack. Wand: Acacia with Dragon Heartstring core, 11 3/4 inches, unyielding Pet: Siamese Cat Family Background: Born into a pure-blood family, Cindy has an overbearing witch of a mother (literally and figuratively) who constantly pushes her daughter to be better than everyone else. She has a healthier relationship with her father, who is an expert in martial magic. Best Subject(s): Potions and Ancient Runes. Cindy is a precise and assiduous student whose entire academic life revolves around the fact that she is the 2nd best student in her year. Though she follows the rules and produces consistently excellent work, she simply cannot compete with Jimmy's natural genius. She covets the #1 spot, and she resents Jimmy for stealing her thunder and for routinely endangering their teachers and peers with his careless experimentation. Nothing frustrates her more than spending 5 hours slaving away on a project, only to be upstaged the next day by a badly-coiffed idiot who produced a better project in 30 effortless minutes. Despite her feelings of jealousy, she can't help but admire her rival at times, and deep down, she yearns for his attention. But of course she can't let him know that – I mean, a Slytherin, crushing on a Gryffindor? Never! Hobbies and Extracurriculars: A superb broomstick-flyer, Cindy is a Chaser on the Slytherin Quidditch team. Her competitive nature and willingness to train hard make her a valuable player, and she hopes to someday become the team captain. She is an accomplished duelist, better even than Jimmy, seeing as she's won 56% of their shared duels (a statistic she takes great pride in). During her down time, she hangs out with her best friend Libby. The girls knew each other before coming to Hogwarts U., and the fact that they aren't in the same house has done nothing to diminish their friendship. In fact, it's saved Cindy from the elitist “Slytherins are best!” view that many of her housemates espouse. At her worst, Cindy is: Vindictive, reactive, and insecure. Cindy has trouble dealing with emotions in a constructive manner, and she often covers up her feelings with sarcasm or cruel words. Because she's so concerned with how other people perceive her, she sometimes behaves in ways that are contradictory to her true thoughts and desires, and this self-deception prevents her from being as powerful as she might otherwise be. At her best, Cindy is: Quick-thinking, strong, and resourceful. She has a gift for getting to the heart of a problem – she sees what needs to be done, and does it. She confronts danger head-on, and she's one of the best people to have on your side when everything goes to hell (which happens. Frequently). She truly cares for Libby, and despite her rivalry with Jimmy, she has on several occasions come to his aid when nobody else would. Random Fact: Cindy's favorite kind of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean is Pecan Ripple. Unfortunately, it looks an awful lot like the “farm dirt” flavor, so... Scarf of Sexual Preference Says: Dangerously Frustrated
SHEEN Sorting Hat Says: Although the house of wisdom and wit might seem like a strange place for the academically-challenged Sheen, the Hat knows what it's doing Sheen excels at out-of-the-box thinking, has a remarkable (one might say obsessive) memory for things that interest him, and is hella freakin weird. Still, his poor grades have not endeared him to his fellow Ravenclaws, which is perhaps why he's made all his closest friends outside his own house. Wand: Dogwood with unknown core, 13 inches, surprisingly swishy Pet: None. Instead, he has a bewitched action figure of his favorite wizard, Xavier Rastrick, a flamboyant magical entertainer who vanished unexpectedly while tap dancing to a crowd of 300 and was never seen again. Family Background: Sheen never talks about his mother, and since none of his friends have ever seen her, her fate is unknown. He has a good relationship with his father, a magical repairman who is more than happy to indulge his son's peculiar interests. Best Subject: History of Magic. The famous witches and wizards of the past are like comic book heroes to Sheen. His interest in their stories gives him an edge over other students in the class, who tend to be more interested in the celebrities of the present. However, because he treats historical figures more like legends than actual people, he occasionally mixes up fact and fiction...which gets him into a lot of arguments with his teacher. Hobbies and Extracurriculars: Sheen is an avid collector of Chocolate Frog cards, and he's memorized volumes worth of obscure details about every single individual who appears on them. He loves blabbing about that one time Glanmore Peakes slew the sea serpent of Kromer, or the time Flavius Belby survived a Lethifold attack, or the time Norvel Twonk saved a muggle child from a runaway manticore... and God forbid he really gets going, because then he might just launch into a yarn about Mirabella Plunkett's life as a human-turned-haddock, and then you'll never get him to shut up. Most people find Sheen tiring, so he spends the majority of his time with Jimmy and Carl. He actually looks forward to the boy genius's inevitable screw-ups, because that means an adventure is sure to follow. He is quite open about his crush on Libby, and can frequently be found tagging along with her. At his worst, Sheen is: Scatterbrained, impulsive, and obsessive. He often wildly misinterprets situations, and his hyperactivity gets real annoying, real fast. He can also be a bit of a womanizer, especially when Libby isn't there to keep his rear end in line. At his best, Sheen is: Hilarious, genuine, and intrepid. Inspired by his heroes of the past, Sheen has on many occasions risked his own safety to rescue his friends, particularly Libby and Jimmy. He frequently cracks jokes, and his bizarre sense of humor alternately amuses and exasperates the people around him. Random Fact: At Sheen's insistence, Jimmy once brewed an aging potion so that he and Carl could experience life as adults. Jimmy screwed up, as usual, and the three of them spent the next 24 hours as old men. Scarf of Sexual Preference Says: Into Role-Playing
LIBBY Sorting Hat Says: Libby is a natural Hufflepuff. She has great people skills, is loyal to her friends, and tackles problems with a no-nonsense attitude. She's chill, fun, and comfortable in her own skin...though she does have a bit of a weakness for the latest fads and inter-house gossip. But then again, who wouldn't, when there's such interesting stuff going on! Wand: Pear with Unicorn Hair core, 9 inches, slightly springy Pet: White Cat Family Background: Like Cindy, Libby comes from a pure-blood family, but none of her relatives really give a crap about that status. Both of her parents are magical entertainers. Best Subject: Charms. Libby is an average student who doesn't really stress too much about grades or class rankings. However, she is quite adept at utilitarian magic, and knows a useful charm for just about every situation. Of the five of them, Libby is also the best at Defense Against the Dark Arts, mostly because Carl gets scared, Sheen doesn't pay attention, Cindy looks for shortcuts, and Jimmy gets too caught up in the theory. Hobbies and Extracurriculars: Libby has a busy schedule. She adores music, and she performs with both the Frog Choir and the Hogwarts U. Orchestra. She keeps tabs on all her favorite magical celebrities and loves doling out commentary on the latest songs, plays, fashion trends, and the like. She wants to learn Mermish so that she can communicate with the merfolk, who share her love of music. Libby has friends from every house, but her best friend is Cindy, and they spend most of their social time together. They were already close before coming to Hogwarts U., so it was difficult for them when they were sorted into different houses. To demonstrate their loyalty to each other, Libby wears Slytherin colors in the form of green hair bands, green earrings, and a silver and green broach. Cindy, for her part, wears Hufflepuff-yellow earrings and a yellow and black striped hair-tie. She also enjoys hanging out with Sheen, who she finds cute...in a geeky, hyperactive sort of way At her worst, Libby is: Superficial, bossy, and frivolous. Every once in awhile she lets her desire for attention get the better of her, and when that happens she's been known to let a secret slip or start an unfounded rumor. Like Cindy, she craves fame, although of a slightly different kind than her friend. At her best, Libby is: Fun-loving, levelheaded, and supportive. When everyone else is flying off the handle, Libby keeps it together. She's secure in who she is and is generally honest and up-front about her thoughts and feelings. In times of danger, she's reliable and ready to do whatever it takes to help her friends. Random Fact: Libby once back-sassed a Grindylow so magnificently that it retreated to the water in terror. Scarf of Sexual Preference Says: Wants Roses First
CARL Sorting Hat Says: Awkward, pudgy, and prone to physical ailments, Carl has to work twice as hard to achieve the same results as his peers. He asked the Hat to place him in Hufflepuff because of its reputation for tolerance and acceptance...though, funnily enough, he ended up making most of his friends outside his house. Wand: Willow with Unicorn Hair core, 10 inches, solid Pet: Common Toad (fur makes him sneeze, and feathers give him a rash) Family Background: Carl is a muggle-born. His parents are obsessed with cleanliness and personal hygiene, and his overly-structured home life contributes to his inflexibility at school. Best Subject(s): Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures. Carl has an aptitude for working with difficult plants and animals, even if he's allergic to half of them He is especially fond of Yeros, a magical creature similar to a llama (the only real difference being that Yero spit is the best known cure for male pattern baldness, whereas llama spit is just...gross). Hobbies and Extracurriculars: Carl spends most of his free time getting dragged into wacky hijinks with his best friends, Jimmy and Sheen. He reluctantly accepts his role as Jimmy's de facto guinea pig, and he secretly wishes he could be more like the boy genius. Carl is an important member of the Muggle Art club – he is, after all, the only member to have actually been raised by muggles, and is thus considered an authority on all their traditions. During his 2nd year at Hogwarts, he mentioned his mother's habit of putting his artwork on the fridge, which led to the widely-circulated misconception that macaroni sculptures are the most highly-prized form of muggle art. At his worst, Carl is: Whiny, clueless, and prone to hysterics. He gets scared easily, dislikes leaving his comfort zone, and doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut. At his best, Carl is: Loyal, honest, and loving. When his friends need him, Carl's got their back. He has a sweet, generous side and isn't afraid to show his emotions. Random Fact: He developed a crush on Jimmy's mom after a love potion went horribly, horribly awry. Even though he was given an antidote not long after, his crush never went away entirely (which creeps his friends out. Understandably). Scarf of Sexual Preference Says: Future Cougar Lover
Thanks for reading, you delightful, patient souls , and Merry Xmas ~Katia711!
Commission for ~MobileHomer, who (amazingly) offered to pay me actual money to "draw something JN related". I'm like... Immediately thereafter, the fandom gods descended from the heavens and decreed that I should re-draw my old JN Genderbender pic from 2007. Allow me to introduce the gender-swapped characters!
Jamie Neutron "But guys! The odds of another accident happening are 1,456,782 to 1!" A genius in the fields of mathematics, bio-engineering, and astrophysics, Jamie is a master of all things technical. She can build an interstellar starship from the junk lying around in your garage, brew a mutagenic cocktail of doom, and clear out those pesky pop-up ads from your desktop computer. Unfortunately for her family and peers, her overzealous curiosity and lack of common sense often lead her to create inventions that fail catastrophically, inviting mayhem and destruction down upon the unsuspecting townsfolk. She suffers from a perpetual nose cold due to late night experiments, and frequent periods of seclusion have left her with a naive streak, a know-it-all attitude, and an inflexible sense of morality. She has an unfortunate tendency to use her friends as guinea pigs and sometimes treats people like research projects instead of human beings with thoughts and feelings of their own. Despite these flaws, she's fiercely loyal and has been known to risk her life to save others. She's not afraid to be herself, and when the chips are down, she can draw on her laundry list of talents to find a solution to any calamity.
Sydney Vortex "What's the point of winning if I can't beat Neutron?" Sydney Vortex is brilliant, critical, competitive, and perfectionistic in all aspects of his life. His parents constantly pressure him to succeed academically, but despite his best efforts, he always ends up second best. He both admires and resents Jamie for stealing his spotlight, and the two of them have been known to have entire conversations consisting of nothing but snide remarks and sarcastic retorts. Sydney is frustrated by his inability to master his turbulent emotions, and he seeks to gain better control through the study of martial arts. At age 11, he's already shown himself to be a Karate and Judo prodigy. He's taken to wearing the uniform outside of training, just to remind Jamie that there's something he's better at (and totally NOT because he once overheard her confess that she finds uniforms attractive ). Sydney's cold anger and obsessive tendencies have earned him an unpleasant reputation at Lindbergh Elementary - the only person who really understands him is his best friend, "Lil" B Folfax. The two of them spend most of their free time hanging out together, when they're not getting roped into some crazy adventure with the girls, of course.
Carla Wheezer "♪ Oh I wish I was a llama, in a great big llama world! ♫" Jamie's best friend Carla is a shy, illness-prone, and socially awkward girl who seems to always say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Carla isn't particularly good in school, and it doesn't help that her parents are always calling in and reminding her to take various embarrassing medications. The redhead is often teased by her classmates for her freckles and baby belly; only Jamie and Sheena accept her for who she really is. Carla is easily frightened and has been known to scream at the sight of danger, yet somehow never falters when Jamie decides to subject her to a barrage of creative and definitely-not-harmful-in-any-way experiments. She is wholly devoted to her friends...though there is some evidence to suggest that she secretly envies Jamie deep down. Carla adores fuzzy animals, especially llamas and alpacas, and hopes to someday raise them for a living.
Sheena Estevez "Think of the bubblegum...the tiny chocolate bars...the artificial flavors...Red Dye #5!" Sheena Estevez is hyperactive, fun-loving, and completely and utterly addicted to anything smothered in corn syrup. She is obsessed with cartoon characters, especially Ultralord and his busty female counterpart, Ultralady, and knows all 9,478 facts from the Ultralord website (which she wrote herself). Although she is quite creative, Sheena's short attention span means that she is always behind in school - in fact, she was held back a grade after failing more tests than any other student in Lindbergh Elementary history (she once scored a zero on a test where you got an automatic 30 points just for writing your name). She drives teachers to drink and ends up in detention at least once a week, where she kills time by doodling all over her hair in permanent marker. When she's not hanging out with Carla and Jamie, Sheena spends her time sketchily flirting with Lil B, who to everyone's shock seems to actually like her in return.
"Lil" B Folfax "Don't tell me that's just hormones." Easy-going, fun, and mellow, Lil B perfectly balances out his best friend Sydney's intense personality. Grade-wise he's a mediocre student, but he's socially adept and involved in dozens of extracurricular activities, including baseball, basketball, and track. His greatest passion is music - he can play 4 different instruments and is knowledgeable about all genres of modern music, though funk and hip-hop are his favorites. He frequently gets exasperated by Sydney and Jamie's "love-hate thing", but for the most part doesn't let things get under his skin. Next to Jamie, he is the most tech-savvy member of the group, never leaving the house without his smartphone, multiple MP3 players, and enhanced bass headset. Lil B appreciates Sheena's spontaneity and enthusiasm, and over time starts to feel a sort of protective affection for her, despite Sydney's disapproval.
Curie *robotic purring vibrations* Named after Marie Curie, Jamie's robot cat comes along on nearly all her owner's adventures. Mischievous and occasionally disobedient, Curie is nonetheless Jamie's most successful and beloved invention. (Credit to Perla for the idea to make her a cat!)
This here is Nefertina from Mummies Alive, a 90s cartoon chock-full of historical inaccuracies and bad Egyptian puns. I remember pretty much nothing about this show...but my internet research has indicated that it was on around the same time as Gargoyles, which I remember in vivid detail ...not sure what that says about the quality of "Mummies Alive"
But yeah. This undead lady has a badass design, so I drew her. I'm satisfied with everything but the hair (it's supposed to look dry and tomb-tousled, but I think it came out like a mop)...I tried to make her skin look splotchy cause hey, she's been dead for thousands of years. Hooray!
This is the third installment of the Obscure/Underloved/Atypical Fandoms Series - which will feature characters that I've never drawn before and who come from fandoms that are lesser-known or not as popular here on dA. P.S. Anatomy issues are due to the fact that she's literally falling apart due to decomposition, and not due to the fact that my artistic abilities still leave a lot to be desired.
I watched the Pirates of Dark Water when I was naught but a wee lass...
The only character I really remember is Tula...I always thought her design was rather eye-catching. So here she is! I went with a flowery-plant motif because it matches her colors, and because she's an ecomancer
This is the second installment of the Obscure/Underloved/Atypical Fandoms Series - which will feature characters that I've never drawn before and who come from fandoms that are lesser-known or not as popular here on dA
Asami is one of my favorite parts of LoK I had some issues with the writing in the first season (particularly the the poorly-handled loved triangle and Mako being a huge dickhead), but I think Asami is a shining example of well-written cliché-avoidance. Here we have a gorgeous, wealthy young woman who enters the scene as the romantic "rival" for the main character; the writers could have easily made her stuck-up or evil or whatever, but instead they decided to be refreshing and make her a classy and competent lady. I mean, she has her whole world turned upside down in the course of like a week, has to choose between her love for her father and her own sense of right and wrong, and has to find a way to carry on after losing her entire family AND her boyfriend. And even after all that, she still carries herself with integrity. You go, girl. Anyway, I'm just pumped because LoK showed that while it's totally OK to be a sporty, aggressive badass chick like Korra, it's equally OK to be a well-groomed, feminine badass chick like Asami. It's really a shame that Mako had to be the focus of Asami and Korra's interactions, because I wanted to see more of a friendship develop between them. Sadface

"Addy Walker is a courageous girl determined to be free in the midst of the Civil War."
I don't know about you, but I was a huge fan of the American Girls book series when I was growing up. Addy was my second fave, so this is my tribute to her (oddly she looks a bit like Tiana in her Diner waitress dress). "Meet Addy" and "Addy Saves the Day" have always stood in my mind as two of the best books in the whole series, and this pic features her outfit from the latter.
Anyway, since it's sort of anime-ish style, I made the title a play on words, combining anime and American to get "Animerican Girl".
