Dulla by Seaff Dulla by Seaff
I've wanted to draw this for a while and I wonder if anyone can guess what it is as well :confused: .

Its one of the 'comb gnomes', villains from the 80's cartoon 'Lady Lovely Locks'. They were always my favourite characters from the cartoon and I still think they're awesomely cute, so I wanted to draw one in a more realistic style.

I would like to also draw Snags and Tanglet if I ever get the time to =) I chose Dulla because of her unique colours and yellow eyes. Interestingly they are all female despite their... very male voices X).

Done with coloured pencils and acrylic paint.

I need to buy a new blue pencil...

Other works:
Snags: [link]
Tanglet: [link]

Really? I definitely hear Snags. Unless the names are different in other languages?

Woooooow. Thank you for letting me remember this cartoon...

Lovely! The colors and level of realism for design that originated in an 80s cartoon is excellent! Eye-candy :heart:

Thats strange O.o
it's said that Dulla ould be male,snag fem and tangelt maybe was fem...*shrugs* dunno anymore,
it's realy gender confussing - as themself look like guy's in my openion,but dang theyre cute ^.^
They where my favs too - they kinda somehow reminded me of gremlins..in a strange way..er dunno,perhaps the mischevious side and big ears XD

I think you made Dulla best - the other pics are awesome as well,but this one stick out more (to me,that is) *__*

I too wanted to draw this cuties someday..just have so much to do,but one day I will XD

It is very strange XD I think of them as all female... but it's so hard to especially with Dulla and Tanglet with their deep voices.

Thanks! And I hope you do draw them one day too =D I'd love to see!

Indeed O.o
I know at least snags did kinda reveal it is a she with this qoute in a episode "vanished" "snags is going to count some sheep,then she will have her beuty sleep" :giggle:
and a second time even LLL points out its a fem in another,
its mentioned on this site about it -
[link]

they indeed sound quite deep in voice X_x

Still I have to see all the episodes to see if there is any hint of what gender Dulla and Tangle is XD
I have to see them in english anyway , as I only owned 2 tapes of LLL in swedish,and sadly one got destroyed by my dad long ago ,cos he didn't notice it wasn't a normal tape you could record of ;__; *sigh* ah well can't recall wich epis was on it -_-

(gaah sorry for rant ^^' )

oh and thanks a lot - I maybe be able to do it in the week : D

Did they have very deep voices in Swedish too? XD Thats funny that they'd do that XD
Shame about your tape! I think there are some episodes on Youtube still around =)

Cool =D

Lol nope, or at least not for snags,but for the others I don't think they dubbed them at all (as they don't speak,or well the one I have Tangle and Dulla don't speak O.o' - as the grumblins he/she makes is from english)
Snags dosn't have a girl voice,but its more a light male voice :giggle: *wonders if she can find a link to show*

aha :nod: Yeah sadly ;__; I at least own one *clings to it*
Im still wondering what epis was on the destroyed one >-<'
The one I have left is that one with longcurl the dragon,
the 2 kids megan and bryan and the race and the one with
prettypixie and prince rescuing Lady by making him looking like a knight ghost XD (wonder if there was one epi more in it alongside it..hmm ah well think it was all)

Oh yes - it's there I saw some english epis - and also that epis Vanish I mentioned haha ^^

Oh wow, I love this! I totally remember Lady Lovely Locks... I saw a few shows as a kid, and I had some of the books, which I still have with me. ♥

My favorite character was Silky Pup, but I loved the Pixietails and the Comb Gnomes too.

You did such a beautiful job bringing this one to life! ^^
