Designer's Original by Wickfield Designer's Original by Wickfield
Rhonda modeling her "homemade" dress from the episode "Rhonda Goes Broke." I thought it would be fun to draw - and I was right! :D I know a lot of people dislike Rhonda, but I think she's really funny and stylish, and even though she can be snobby it's not like she's any meaner than Helga or some of the other characters, kwim? Especially since in this same episode it shows she's insecure because she feels like all her worth comes from being the "rich girl".

So anyway yay Rhonda and yay Hey Arnold! You can check out my Tumblr to see one of my reference pics and also a slightly different version of this drawing. [link]

Textures from `cloaks and ~Mifti-Stock

I loved this episode. Growing up, I'd get so excited whenever Hey Arnold, Rocket Power or As Told By Ginger was on.

By the time Rocket Power and Ginger were on, I didn't have Nick anymore. :( I think the last new show I saw at that time was The Wild Thornberrys! (Until around 2005 when we got cable again but the others were already pretty much off air.)

I love the Wild Thornberrys. As a kid I was allowed to stay up until 8:30 to watch it.

Loved that Episode. I liked (and miss) all the Hey Arnold Characters. What I really liked about the other characters, like Rhonda, is that they are Morally Imperfect people, but with Redeeming Qualities. :)

Thank you! This was one of those where I had an idea for the drawing, and had the effects, but couldn't for the life of me figure out how to *finish* it. I actually have a few alternate versions but this one definitely turned out best.

Thanks! The textures were kind of an accident because once I finished the lineart I couldn't decide how to color it at all. :XD: I'm glad it looks okay though!

well, if Rhonda was pretty AND nice or smart, she wouldn't be very interesting! She'd be just like Lila.
..and actually I have no problem with Lila either, as she's like a parody sue.
Reply
:iconwickfield:
Wickfield Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree. She has an attitude but I mean, she IS only 9, haha.

And I really don't have much problem with Lila either...I mean she's not my favorite or anything but I do think she was supposed to be a parody. ;)

When I was a little girl I didn't like her too much. But nowadays I began to notice she is very funny in her snobbish way.

Great work with her.

I've seen the episode, and I thought it was good, but I felt that they could've had Rhonda learn to accept her current situation of being poor a little earlier. Most of the time, she's just whining and doesn't let Arnold's advice sink in until the last couple of minutes . But that's just me.

Great pic, BTW! :)

Yeah, that's true - it would have been better to see her rock her "poor" status through more of the episode, haha.
Thanks!

That's how I felt about the episode there. Could have been a neat story line and have her go back to being rich by the series finale.
