Leeler -- Bender and Leela by MelanieGracey Leeler -- Bender and Leela by MelanieGracey
Inspired by the beautiful art of :iconmissuspatches: and my own weirdness came this. Very non-canon-but-kind-of, I must say. :P

A ton of things are off with the perspective -- Leela's too short and gangly and Bender's too big and tall. Oh well, maybe he extended his legs, because I think from his eyeline, he's shorter than her.

I never really thought about shipping them, and now I can see why. They just seem better as good friends. This picture is cute though. :)

Eeeyeah, this was made a little while back, before "Proposition Infinity." :P I still think it could be a fun, AU-ish idea, or in "I Second That Emotion," but yeah, they work as friends-not-friends.

Never though those two would be together but you did a wonderful job drawing them out. I love the look bender is giving her like "Oh baby we are going to have fun" type of look. XD

Anyways, wonderful job! <adds to favs>

The thing I like most about Leela's character is that she never hooked up with Bender. The thing I like least about Amy's character is that she did hook up with Bender.

yeeee!! :giggle: Adorable! You did Bender justice here, even if he is a little tall! (I actually think it's kinda characteristic of him to want to be tall enough to sweep chicks off their feet, though he could prolly already do that anyway.) hee, I like the look he's givin' her - it's so possessive with a hint of snarkiness~ >x}
Also, very nice work with her eye - the way you drew combined with her little grin and the cute shape of her face gives her a very sweet expression ^-^ and hey, I love the way you blended colours for her hair; gives it a subtle, detailed feel that's quite attractive :}

x) so yeah, I pretty much love this - very good work! it does my heart good to see more of this pairing around~ :'D

psst... ever think about art trades? >.>

Bizarre yet...oddly cool. :p I love her eye, and Bender's spot on. Is it weird for me to say, "Huh, that armpit is drawn incredibly well?" :p Well, it is drawn incredibly well! So there! I think her arms might be a smidgen too long, though. It's hard for me to tell with the angle they're bent, but I kept thinking if they were down at her sides, it'd be "off."
Seriously, your artwork makes me realize just how little talent I have. :p Keep up the great work!

Haha; thank you! I didn't know I was a skilled armpit artisan. :P
Yeah; I see what you mean...I'm really awful at drawing arms that are at weird angles to the body, for some reason.
Now, don't say that, silly! You have plenty of artistic talent. :hug: Thank you for your kind words. :)

Hmm never thought of this whenever I watched the show xD (now that I've seen this I'm going to start watching for it though o_O) but nicely done. You did her eye good xD most people screw that up when drawing Leela.
