Ghostbusters Futura by cwmodels Ghostbusters Futura by cwmodels
This is Futura and her Time Hopper from Filmation's Ghostbusters. This is my take on the alluring purple-skinned "Ghostbustress of the Future" (her official title from the show)!

I always thought Futura looked like a black girl (with purple skin) so I did draw her with African-American facial features, hair, and body type in mind. I also streamlined the Time Hopper to resemble a future Segway. But the most fun was reshaping the antennas on her headgear into horns.

Now this is what I call A MAJOR REMAKE!!!!! :wow: :love: :jawdrop: :heart: :blush:

And you know what? :) Futura WAS originally intended to be African-American, but people at (the now defunct) Filmation Studios ended up with the version we watched on the show. I can't remember the reason, though, but it was a great succes, no doubt! :D

Your version of Futura is simply wonderful, beautiful and SEXY, cwmodels! ;) I really like this image you've given her and for that I thank you. Futura looks so wild and daring at the same time! :blush: :blush:

Also, Time Hopper looks pretty awesome, too! Can't forget about her (yeah, it's a she!)! :XD: SUPERB DESIGN!!!! ;)

You're welcome, cwmodels! :D After all, I used to watch this show back in the 80's and I still like it as much as the first day! :)

Besides, Filmation did some of the BEST shows back then, right? ;) Ghostbusters was NO exception to this rule, that's for sure! :)

Out of curiosity, do you happen to do commissioned work and/or requests? :? Let me know about this in a note, please! ;) :D

It's like if Filmation came back into production, picked up their series and gave an entire upgrade to their character designs

I almost forgot about Futura.
Even as a kid I noticed she was too HOT for a kids show, but that's why I loved her.
Thanks for drawing such a nostalgic goddess.

I was never a fan of that Filmation series, I always liked the series based on the movies better.:iconghostbustersplz:

That being said I do remember her and I think your revamp is amazing. :clap:

I also preferred the Real Ghostbustersover it. Filmation's version was just too goofy and childish in comparison. But I did like a lot of the characters and design work done in that show, and Futura was one of the few things that kept me watching as a kid.

Yeah and Real Ghostbusters actually had scary stuff in it that would catch me off guard, sort of like Inhumanoids did. Plus most of the storylines were just very well written and animated.

The most I remember about the Filmation one was the car and the gorilla but still I know what you mean. All it takes is one good character sometimes to make you stick with a series.
