Cartoon Illuminati by AdamWithers Cartoon Illuminati by AdamWithers
A commission I recently got, this was completely "out there." I mean, never in my life did I imagine I'd be drawing something like this: a collection of the greatest geniuses in the history of cartoons, all brought together to decide the fate of the world in secret! How fun is that?

The Cast (Clockwise from top center): Daria Morgendorffer (Daria), Susan and Mary Test (Johnny Test), Velma Dinkley (Scooby Doo), Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory), Edd (Ed, Edd, n' Eddy), Nigel Uno (Codename: Kids Next Door), and Jimmy Neutron.

Their ages were all adjusted to put them at around the same maturity level, give or take. Some grew up well, others not so much. I like the idea that Dexter never gets very tall - he maxes out at maybe 5'2 or something, and is forever Napoleonic about it. :D

Thanks. I can't take credit for the concept - it was a commissioned piece - but I appreciate the sentiment. :)

Really good job. The more cartoonish the original cartoon character, the more unique the character is when you draw them realistically. Nigel Uno and Jimmy Neutron.

Thanks. I think I had the most fun with characters where I had to do more work thinking about their designs and how to make them feel right when drawn my way. I mean, Dexter, Velma, and Daria were pretty much no-brainers, but others were much more interesting to think about.

I actually didn't recognize Jimmy Neutron at first. I thought he was like that guy from Back to the Future. Then when I realized it was like a college age Jimmy I was like "oh, that's a really good design." 
Nigel I had to look at for a minutes, since I didn't watch much Codename. But even in a split second I vaguely recognized him.

Why does Jimmy look nothing like Jimmy?
Reply
:iconadamwithers:
AdamWithers Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2015  Professional Artist
Um... because he's drawn here as an adult in a 2d illustration style that's a lot more realistic(ish) than the one he's usually shown in?

But all the other look almost exactly like their cartoon counterparts, why is he dressed differently?

Why would a grown man wear the same thing he wore as a small child? Nigel is dressed differently. The Test sisters aren't exactly the same, and neither is Edd (though, admittedly, he didn't change much). And Dexter is... well, he's weird, anyway. That's intentional.

Well, yes, but I could still recognize the others. Jimmy looks more like a Hanna-Barbara character

Dexter is always Dexter. When he's 87, he'll still be in the white labcoat and purple gloves. Some people never change. :)

Yeah, and it should be Numbah 2 from Codename: KND, not Numbah 1.

This is really cool, a group of smart people... I didn't notice Jimmy, since his head is very big, you know, but Dexter should be taller, I mean, since in the Dexter's Laboratory Ego Trip movie his adult version was pretty bad-ass.
