Leela of Futurama by DLNorton Leela of Futurama by DLNorton

Hello there kiddies, me again, the old fucker who runs this particular account.  

It seems that this piece has the most faves (1280 of them) of all my work, and why not? Fan art is a big favorite. I know my own work won't get half the likes that Ol' Leela here has seen. I've read all the comments below over the years, re-read some again. My fave is the one who said Leela's boots are not combat ready..and I say, they are not, you are right. 

I'd like to see them do an actual Futurama big screen movie, buuut.. that would be asking too much. They ended the series in a nice tidy little "Goodbye"...*deep wistful sigh*...

A some point soon, I will be putting the original up for auction unless someone wants to buy it outright. But I want serious really..I do.. I'm not going to put a price on it, I'd like you (or others) to make an offer. I won't make this available for prints and such, I just do not want 20th Century Fox coming to my house and machine gun me in the face with a "Cease and Desist" order, or an actual machine gun in the face. That would suck balls.

..and at some point, I think I'll swap out the old file for a higher definition stay tuned.


THE REAL DEAL!! Soon to be up for auction!--->…

UPDATE: New modified image file installed.

VVV------ The Past Lies Beyond Here------VVV

9X12 ballpoint (and some colored pencil) I felt the urge to do a pic of Leela from Futurama. Mainly because I like the show so much, and secondly, if Cartoon Network can bring back Family Guy...why not push to bring back Futurama? I did hear that Matt Groening and David X. Cohen are considering making a Futurama cinematic trilogy...but it's only talk. So here's my plea... GAWDDAMMIT GUYS...BRING BACK MY SHOW!! JUST DO IT!! JEEBUS CHRIST!!!

There...I feel I don't......:X :frustrated:

UPDATE: Already have the 3 new full length features, just waiting for the 4th and possibly final one. :-P

UPDATE 2: Aug. 28, 2013 - The new series came and went, coming up to the final episode. I don't think Groening and Cohen are going to continue it. I think they are tired of it and want to go to other projects. Can't blame them, go out on top, instead of milking a show into the grave. Well''s been fun.

Wow. All I could think when I first saw it was: "Damn, look at that -ass-... 0.0" Very nice! My only thing is what someone else mentioned below, about Leela's trademark combat-ready boots. I can't actually remember ever seeing her without them, come to think of it.

But like they said, I love this take, & those are some kick-ass boots. =)

DragonsLover1 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
It's freaking awesome, it really is. :D You did excellent.

The only thing I have a problem with is her heels. Just cause I'm so used to her being the badass, tough, military-grade-boots-wearing captain.

Those heels look good though. ;)

Wow, a cinematic trilogy for Futurama! It'll be bigger than Star Wars (for me anyway). I can't remember why the show was cancelled in the first place. So many more stories to be told...
Love this work. It has a real futuristic seriousness to it, which is a good contrast to the silliness of the show.
Sunsational Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
I think that's the best Leela I have ever seen!
