Studio Tour 11 – Birdgirl/Harley

I sketched this one a good while back. I’m not sure if I can articulate why I really wanted to do something with these two together, maybe just because I consider their respective shows part of a similar trend, but I wanted to bring them together so here they are. I can think of several shows that portray the heroes and villains dynamic as more like a form of roleplay (sometimes even romantic/sexual roleplay) instead of a battle between good and evil. The show Birdgirl spins off of, Harvey Birdman, is one such example, even. So it made sense to me that, in the Studio where crime and villainy are all pretty much out of the picture, characters who miss that dynamic might instead take to a form of mock battle that functions pretty explicitly as foreplay.

Gillian at Work

I enjoyed the second season of Birdgirl, and it got me motivated to draw more of the series. Part of that was the recent Ask, but I had several ideas for standalone pics I wanted to do (we’ll see how many of them make it this far). The first thing I wanted to do was to round out the main cast (that is, the main cast I’m interested in), since I’d paired all of them except Gillian with Judy up to now. Gillian is Judy’s loyal secretary, and I thought a fun scenario would be for Judy to have her dick her down for some stress relief in the office.

Birdgirl Character Ask 1

I’m always excited to see characters I like who don’t get much attention getting questions. Part of why I picked the previous Ask was to get more exposure for Kaori, and similarly here I’m happy to see Judy Ken Sebben/Birdgirl getting a question. I tried to think of a fun way to incorporate the “seed” pun, but in the end I couldn’t come up with anything I liked. Birdgirl in the show is much more amorous than her Judy side, so I thought maybe just working it into her crimefighting would be fun. This is the first time I’ve drawn Birdgirl as Birdgirl, but I also have new Judy content coming soon enough that I hope some of you will be looking forward to!

Judy and Evie

A while back I drew Judy, the protagonist of Birdgirl, with Charlie and Meredith, my favorite girls from that series. I decided to go back to the show and also do pics of her with Evie and Gillian, the other two main gals in the cast. Evie here is introduced a bit later in the first season. I never really got what her deal was meant to be, but she’s cute enough. I’ve got the Gillian pic started, so hopefully that will come along before too long and I’ll have the full female cast in the Studio.

Meredith the Muff Muncher

I mentioned before that there was one other Birdgirl character I was interested in, and that’s Meredith here. She’s this series’ version of Mentok from the original Harvey Birdman, though I don’t know how they’re related (they’re just both green and have the same powers, and go “Bee-woop!”). I like her, though, in a similar way to how I like Poison Ivy in the Harley Quinn cartoon, and wanted to draw her with Judy. All three of my Birdgirl crushes are in the Studio now, though I can’t say for sure how often any of them will show up.

Strongarming Judy

I recently watched Adult Swim’s “Birdgirl”, a sort-of sequel/spin-off to the old “Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law” cartoon. The show’s… not great, unfortunately. I wanted to like it, but it really just didn’t click, which is a shame. I do, however, like several of the characters. Judy and Charlie “Strongarm”, seen here, are both great, and I also like Meredith the Mind Taker a lot. So I do want to draw this show some, at least those three characters, and if it ends up with more seasons hopefully they can improve the formula to make something fun to watch (lots of good shows have weak first seasons, after all). We’ll have to wait and see, but for now I’m happy to adopt the characters for my own use.
Charlie’s a real beauty of an amazon, I really adore her design and voice. Judy (Birdgirl) has also always been a character I liked a lot, and I dig her older design in this series. Hopefully you guys will enjoy seeing them here as much as I did drawing them.
