This freelance artist from NYC drew some of the most popular cartoon characters in their original styles and then did her own take on them.
“Sometimes poses from stylized designs don’t translate 1:1 to other art styles,” Elena writes on her website. “Things need to be tweaked according to what you’re going for.”
Manetta’s style is pretty distinctive. “I really like drawing overly muscular characters,” she says. “I don’t know if that’s obvious from my own characters or not. It allows me to give a lot of curvy features to a man without making them look feminine.”
