Bruce Timm designs Mally.

During the She-Ra series the now-legendary Bruce Timm was one of the many character design artists. He would often design a group of new supporting characters should the script so request it. The season one episode "Unexpected Ally" was one of the episodes he worked on to create the supporting cast for. Here we see two illustrations by Bruce as he designs the character of Mally. Once more the artist showcases his amazing ability to draw incredibly beautiful women! The note on the top right is interesting; is states that the final character model should use the body of the first design with the head of the second. If you examine the final character model of Mally in the episode you will see that this actually came to pass!

I promised myself I wouldn't rewatch any She-Ra episodes until you publish your Princess of Power guide, but now I have to check out Bruce Timm's Mally immediately!

I really like the hair on the first design.

Huh... odd that he said that he's not very good at drawing female characters in one of the Batman TAS extras.

Incredibly beautiful looking women is right! Just gotta love the long, supermodel legs on the illustration to the right. :) Nice how the design of the face was chosen, because the illustration on the left looks too much like Adora ... Not that there's anything wrong with that! Hey, I wouldn't mind going on a date with a woman who looks like either of them. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
