BATMAN BEYOND MELANIE by DaveBullock BATMAN BEYOND MELANIE by DaveBullock
Another pinup from back in the day.
For anyone unaware, Melanie is "TEN" from the Royal Flush gang.
This was done while story-boarding on season one of
BATMAN BEYOND.
Here's a couple of fun versions of it:

Pencils and color by me.
Inked by Darwyn Cooke in a filthy grey cubicle at the old Wobbly Barn.
Those were good times!
This was a VERY early psd color job.

Why didn't Terry take Mel? She was hotter than ... what was her name? The girlfriend one.

Awesome! Love that show! It had the hottest females I've ever seen in cartoons especially Max and Melanie. I had no idea Melanie was a smoker though lol

DaveBullock Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
She was briefly, but she's too smart to be a smoker!
Melanie was designed, along with the other hotties from the show, mostly by a fella named Shane Glines. Google him and you'll find some of killer work.

hahaha LOVE seeing this piece again! i got a copy of the black n white somewhere in my old WB binder. nice to see members of the "lunch box gang" in the BG. man, this first appearance of Mel was a great ep. you and Tucker did SUCH great stuff, GREAT action, GREAT romance. Tucker's boarding of Mel and Terry running into each other's arms. and you were doing so much awesome stuff with solid black areas in your compositions(in addition to your killer action AND acting) man, i was so nervous/honored when Darwyn let me do clean up on a big section of his board so he'd have time to complete the title sequence! ah, those were good days! :)

Is that Glen and Shane in the BG?

That's Glen, but he fella next to him is Cal Murkin.

Ah. I think I saw a drawing Bruce did of Shane Glines where the basic shapes were similar. And if I'm correct, didn't Shane design her?
Reply
:icondavebullock:
DaveBullock Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Shane Glines did in fact design Melanie. I recall him being inspired by the Disney Tarzan hair.
Ask him about Cal Murkin.

Yeah, I never got that either. The worst of all was that Justice League chapter that shows you that relationship prospered. I always rooted for this relationship(ala Bruce/Catwoman)instead

Love it! I'm amazed by how naturally you draw in Timm's style yet I can totally see your own hands mark on it (not because the sign on the bottom :)) Congrats!

Darwyns inks are pretty stout sometimes, Reminds me a bit of Glen Murakamis work on the Batman Adventures specials. A bit too much black sometimes but otherwise really powerful and energetic work.

Hey, I remember you. We met at NYCC didn't we?
Thanks for digging Melanie! She was a fav. I was fortunate to been able to storyboard her date with Terry at the dance club. Well, she meets Terry after he ditches Dana.
It's so great to see the show in steady play now on The HUB.

Yes we did :D I met you with my also very tiny cousin Bridget, haha. I actually haven't caught any of this on television, but now that you tell me where I can find it, I'll definitely look for it! I remember you told me that you did the story boarding for 'Stranded' for Teen Titans, and that was definitely one of my favorite episodes!! If you storyboarded for that, I can only imagine how this one you're telling me about looks :D I bet I'd enjoy it alot :)
