New Heroine Headshot: Elfie from “Legend of the Coral Reef: Elfie of the Blue Sea”

Here’s another Heroine Headshot. This time, it’s a girl called Elfie, from a somewhat obscure animated film (at least in the West) titled Legend of the Coral Reef: Elfie of the Blue Sea (サンゴ礁伝説 青い海のエルフィ in Japanese characters). This film was produced by Nippon Animation and broadcast on Fuji Television in Japan, way back in 1986. I only found out about Elfie because I saw part of a review on it on YouTube a few weeks ago. In that review, Elfie was compared to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and the two films certainly have similarities, not least of which is the fact that both Elfie and Nausicaa were voiced by the same voice actress, Sumi Shimamoto. As far as I’m aware, Elfie has never been released in English, but if you’re interested in seeing it in Japanese, someone has uploaded it to YouTube. I quite enjoyed it; it’s a fun, family-orientated adventure with an incredibly sweet, kindhearted heroine.😊

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😁
