Top 10 Hottest Cartoon Girls of Fan Art

Updated on October 14, 2014

Fan Art

Fan art, as I described in my hub on the sexiest Disney princesses, is artwork that is based on a character or idea created by someone else. While it can be a work of art derived from a book, poem, or music, it is mainly work derived from comics, cartoons, movies and video games.

I hope you enjoy the images I am displaying below. The images fall under the "fair use" provision of the US Copyright law, or are properly credited to the creator of the fan art. Also, visit the artist profiles I list later to show your support of fan art.

Batgirl

We start with Batgril from DC Comics

 

Batgirl made her first of several incarnations in DC Comics in 1961. The character was created by Bob Kane and Sheldon Moldoff and introduced as a love interest to the Robin's character in Batman. Allegations of homosexuality between Batman and Robin led to the creation of Batgirl.

Betty Kane in 1961, Barbara Gordon in 1967, Helena Bertinelli and also Cassandra Cain in 1999 and Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe in 2006, have all assumed the identity of Batgirl in several spin-offs and deviations from the original DC Comics Batman series.

As you can imagine, each new Batgirl, though a fictional character, brought a whole new personality dimension to the character. Fans and artists continue to recreate this character as they interpret her.

Betty Boop

Bring on Betty Boop

 

Betty Boop was created by animator Max Fleisher in 1930. It is said that the Betty Boop character was modeled after two popular silent film actresses of the 1920's , Helen Kane and Clara Bow. Betty Boop was considered the most famous sex symbols of the animated screen.

Boops cartoons were full of carefree sexuality and psychological elements of the Depression era. Because her cartoons were full of sexual innuendo, she became one of the first animated characters to be subjected to censorship and her animators ordered to tone down her sexuality.

Betty Boop is of legendary popularity and has legions of fans around the world. Her characterizations have paved the way mor many sexually liberated women around the world. Her merchandise can be found everywhere and she last made a cameo appearance in the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Catwoman

The mysterious Catwoman

 

Catwoman was first created in 1949 by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. This character has been a supervillainess as well as an antiheroine. She has been portrayed as an adversary of Batman and also a love interest, occasionally as his one true love.

Catwoman's costumes have evolved numerous times over the years as well as her abilities. She's' a top athlete and gymnastic prodigy that is also extremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat. She wields an assortment of bullwhips, has retractable razor sharp claws and displays an empathic relationship with all kinds of felines.

Because of her relationship with batman, her character is mysteriously intriguing. Her character recreations are very popular among fan artists.

Cheetara

Cheetara of the ThunderCats

 

Cheetara was a female warior based on the Cheeta, and the only original adult female ThunderCat. The ThunderCats was an American animation series based on the characters created by Tobin Wolf in 1985. The ThunderCats were cat-like humanoid aliens from the planet Thundera who become stranded on "Third Earth" and must avoid their enemies, the Mutant's of Plun-Darr.

Cheetara was the voice of reason and had a "sixth sense" that allowed her to perceive when danger was near. She was super fast which helped her in combat and wielded a staff that could grow or shrink.

The ThunderCats series only lasted for 4 seasons but continues to have a cult following and a huge fanbase. Rumors of a new ThunderCats movie have been floating around on the web for over a decade but nothing has ever been substantiated.

Harley Quinn

Psychotic and Humorous Harley Quinn

 

Harley Quinn was created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm in 1992. Her character is a close accomplice and would-be girlfriend of the Joker, Batman's nemesis. She also has a close relationship with fellow supervillainess, Poison Ivy.

The Harley Quinn character is very popular among comic fans. She moved on from Batman: The Animated Series to numerous cameo roles in th DC Universe and finally on to her own comic book series.

It's the psychotic and humorous nature of Harley Quinn's character that makes her so attractive to fan artists to recreate her in their own vision.

More Art to Ponder

If you enjoy these sexy cartoon girls then you will certainly enjoy my hub on the sexiest bikini scenes in movies. You might also be interested in another form of expressive art called Lowbrow.

Jean Grey / The Phoenix

Jean Grey aka. The Phoenix

 

Jean Grey was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and is one of the five original members of the X-Men. Her character first appeared in X-Men #1 in 1963. Her main powers were telepathy and telekinesis. However, Jean Grey's character has evolved into the Phoenix and has developed Godlike powers.

In her 46+ years of existence, her character has gone through several image changes as well as ability changes. She is ranked #6 of the top 25 X-Men of the last 40 years. Fan artists around the world try their hand at recreating this icon.

Jessica Rabbit

Jessica Rabbit Enters

Jessica Rabbit got her big debut in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  She was a scantly clad lounge singer and the wife of Roger Rabbit.

The film was a huge financial success, though a coordinating nightmare.  It was a mix of live action and animation together onscreen.  It was the first and only time Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny appeared onscreen together as well as Donald and Daffy Duck.  Also, the producers failed to get permission to present cameos from Popeye, Felix the Cat and Tom and Jerry.  But they were able to get a cameo from the most famous cartoon sex symbol, Betty Boop.

Rumors of a nude frame on the laser disc release of this film let to a sell out of the laser disc on its debut.  It's not only funny, but it speaks volumes about the sexuality of Jessica Rabbit.  It also accounts for the above average recreation of the character by fan artists.

Princess Jasmine

The Princess Jasmine

 Princess Jasmine was created by Ron Clements and John Musker for the 1992 animated Disney film, Aladdin.  Jasmine is the first Disney princess to not be of Euorpean descent.

Her distinct hourglass figure, dark brown eyes, long black hair that she pulls into a ponytail, along with her poofy outfits that always reveal her midriff, leave a lot for imagination.  Disney characters, especially princesses are top targets for fan artists.

Wonder Woman

The Amazon Wonder Woman

 Created by Moulton Marston in 1941, Wonder Woman is one of 3 characters to be continuously published since the beginning of DC Comics. 

Wonder Woman is a superhero that comes from the legendary Amazons of Greek Mythology.  Her ancestory from this legendary tribe alone places her near the top of sexiest cartoon girls.  Her outfit helps too.

Her creator, Marston, was famous for inventing the polygraph, hence the macic lasso.

Velma

Velma, star of Scooby Doo

I know, most people would think that Daphne from Scooby Doo would place higher than Velma.  After all, Daphne has a slim figure, she wears a purple mini-dress with purple stockings.  She's not very smart and most likely an easy choice for many admirers.

However, Velma is very brainy.  She covers her assets very well which leaves many fan artists to use their imagination to bring out the real Velma.

I must know!!!

    Great fun, interesting subject. I wouldn't have thought there would be a beauty contest for cartoon women! Don't give me that bullshit, it's what's inside that counts! I wonder why the other Disney characters such as The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Cinderella weren't contestants for Cartoon Miss Universe? Very well written and imaginative. Thank you

    Thanks Chris, Nicole, and Cereal. Velma is pretty good, I'm kinda partial to Wonder Woman myself... If you visit the artists link to WW you'll see that he modeled her, at least the face, after Megan Fox.

    Awesome hub, I put my vote in for Jean Grey / Phoenix. Ever notice that the fan art breasts are about 3x's bigger than the original artist's drew them at? I guess we all know what guys wanna see "more" of.
