Female Persuasion 3 ATC by *MaryBellamy
Some artist trading cards done for 5finity’s March of Dimes charity. I only did these 12 cards this time around. Top half is Dean Yeagle’s Suzette and the bottom are just sexy girls. I wanted to draw Chinese take out on that second one. XD And I’d never done a drawing of a girl under water, so there’s that.

Camille of the Moon Sisters by *MaryBellamy

I don’t often get time to read…or things I’d like to so when I won Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn I was hooked on her series. I’m sadly though only on book seven of like fifteen but I thought I’d draw a semi chibi Camille. I did doodle some of Deliliah but I didn’t like them as much. I might do better ones later.

Just us retro girls by *MaryBellamy

So, these original drawings were done way back in 2006 for portfolio stuff. I never colored them because they were sketches…but since people seem to like these other styles I finished this up today with current Photoshop coloring. I may pull out other older stuff and clean it up…

On pitching animated shows for girls:

If you talk to the people in charge — the people looking to invest in these things and, unfortunately, the people who usually tell you no — they’ll tell you that girl things just don’t get the numbers. It’s a business and you need to make money. The girl books don’t get the ratings, the girl books don’t get the sales. Unfortunately, a lot of people will tell you that this is because girls aren’t interested in cartoons or girls aren’t interested in comic books.

I don’t think that’s true. I think the reason that might be is because most of the stuff for girls isn’t hitting them in the right place. All too often, “for girls” means “for little girls.” They won’t target an 8-year-old or a 10-year-old. An 8-year-old isn’t going to be interested in something that’s aimed for a 5-year-old. And, when they do gear stuff for 8-year-olds, it’s all about combing your hair and clothes. I don’t think girls are interested in that kind of stuff. I think they’re interested, but I don’t think that they’re interested in stories about it or characters whose lives revolve around it. I just don’t think that enough people have made stuff that was good enough or compelling enough to bring the girls in.

Girls’ stuff doesn’t get the same kind of budget that the boys’ stuff gets. It’s usually lower quality and kids can tell that stuff. Instead of blaming it on the quality, they’ll blame it on the gender. They’ll say the stories are for girls. That’s what’s making it not work, where I feel that it’s the quality and the content that’s making it not work. I’m hoping for people to put a little more faith in girls. Too much stuff for girls is about tea parties and holding hands and skipping down the lane.

All the painted Zorilita girls together so far.

I’ve been doodling Angel, more now that I don’t have time for the full  volume of Ah Heck!! The Angel Chronicles. Either way, not the normal  style in the book but having fun drawing while watching No Ordinary  Family. Not sure when/if I will finish this. Texture found somewhere  here on DA.

The “finished’ image from before. Like I said, abstract background until I can think of something better or I may never finish this. I’m not sure. I just thought this little lady deserved to be colored finally.

So, I sketched tons of little Valentines Day drawings but I’m not sure  how many I will scan. So yeah, Deliliah and Lotus are officially  “together.” I wish I had time to finish this but…work is priority at the moment.

I hope to finish this one some day. It’s Angel and she’s about to steal some Pocky.
