I haven’t drawn any fan art for a long time, but I drew this piece to commemorate one of my old pieces of fan art being bookmarked five hundred times on pixiv. It is, of course, a drawing of several of the characters from Inspector Gadget (the classic 80s cartoon); namely Penny, Mad Cat, Dr Claw, Brain, and even Inspector Gadget himself. There is a slightly larger image available on my pixiv gallery, for those who are interested. 😊

Featured Figure: Vintage Bandai Penny from “Inspector Gadget”
It has always been my intention to include memorabilia here on Moe Dimension, in particular figures, but like a lot of things this idea always seems to end up on the back burner. However, today I’m pleased to present one of my most treasured pieces of memorabilia: a vintage figure of Penny from the original Inspector Gadget cartoon from the eighties, manufactured by Bandai.
As you may know, I’m a big, big fan of Penny and this is a figure I got back in the eighties, when I was still growing up but kind of growing out of toys. So unlike most of my other treasured toys (my Kenner Star Wars figures, for example), I did not play with this figure very much, if at all, so it’s in very good condition.Continue reading
New Heroine Headshot: Félicie Le Bras from “Ballerina”
Here’s another Heroine Headshot. This time, it’s Félicie Le Bras, the heroine from Ballerina (AKA Leap), a 2016 French-Canadian 3D animated film. Ballerina is a tale about a Victorian-era orphan who goes to Paris in an attempt to fulfil her dream of joining the prestigious Paris Opera as a dancer. I’ve been aware of Ballerina for quite a while, and I thought it looked like a fun film, but when I finally saw it for the first time a few days ago, I was quite impressed. It’s a beautifully animated film, and its art style and humour reminded me quite a lot of bande dessinées (i.e. Franco-Belgian comics, such as Asterix), which I’ve always been a fan of. It does have a few modern pop songs in it, which I found a bit jarring, but that is my one and only gripe. Overall, I thought it was a great film, and Félicie, who is a bundle of cheerful energy, is simply adorable.😊
Note: there seems to be a bit of confusion about Félicie’s family name, but since she is a French character, I chose to refer to her by the name she is given in the French version.
New Heroine Headshot: Riyo Chuchi from “The Clone Wars”
So, here is another “Heroine Headshot”. Inspired by last week’s heroine (Yumi from Ulysses 31), I’ve drawn another blue-skinned alien girl, this time from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Riyo Chuchi is possibly the cutest of all the Star Wars babes that I know, so it’s unfortunate that she made only a handful of appearances in The Clone Wars. It would be nice if she could appear in future Star Wars media. And it would be even nicer if a figure was released of her, because I would love to have one!😋
New Heroine Headshot: Yumi from “Ulysses 31”
I’ve decided to try a new type of fan art, which I’ve coined “Heroine Headshots”. I often get the urge to draw fan art of female characters I find interesting, but I don’t really have the drive these days to do full-blown illustrations, so hopefully these mini-illustrations will satisfy that urge. Anyway, first up is Yumi (AKA Thémis in French) frim Ulysses 31, who I wrote a brief post on at the beginning of this year. As I said in that post, I’m not really a fan of Ulysses 31, but I’ve always had a soft spot for cute alien girls😁
