Hellcats - Goodbyes by fortheloveofpizza Hellcats - Goodbyes by fortheloveofpizza
Positive outcomes only.

****

I tried my hardest to get the anatomy right on this one. It was a very important piece for me, for what others would say are only silly reasons.

A while ago they announced Hellcats was canceled. This is a sendoff piece for the series from television, but it will forever remain in my heart. I shall continue to love it and create more art for it! And possibly a fanfic. What? Mag doing fanfic? I didn't say anything shutupstoplookingatme!

<start rant>
*insert whiny voice* Whyyyyyyyy did Hellcats have to get caaaaaaaanceled!?!? Now there's, like, this big hole in my heart!! Oh my heart!!! :iconcryingplz:

Okay. Honestly, I loved this show. I thought it was fantastic, not just for the fun eyecandy and subtext, but I honestly loved the characters and felt the plot progression was not only well-planned, but good and consistent. I laughed, cried, gasped, and shouted many, many times over the course of its 22 episode run. The characters had depth and choices, conflict and motivations, and they followed through consistently from episode to episode. But no. Only Glee lesbian cheerleaders get any love. Glee couldn't keep a character consistent if Barbra Streisand's life depended on it. HARRUMPH!

I know, the series should have never been cancelled (I don't know why they cancelled it in the first place... the story was good, and the cast was quite good too, especially Ashley. Let's face it, she did a great job portraying her character [it was her best performance ever since The Suite of Zack and Cody, and well, maybe HSM]). I really like the way you did this drawing. The anatomy is good and the colours are solid. Congratulations.

They just had bad ratings. I think it was because people were making judgements about it without actually watching it. That was my experience with friends who I brought it up with. And I completely agree, Ashley was very surprising in her role; she was even my favorite character!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the picture. :3

This series just proves that Ashley is a great actress, as well as a singer and a rocker, my friend. She has everything to be one of Hollywood's top actresses. Wouldn't be surprised if she won an Emmy or an Oscar, you know?

Well, maybe in the U.S. but back here in Europe, the series was quite famous, especially in Portugal, Spain and England. It was one fo the most popular series that people watched on TV.

You know, I think that at least they should continue the story in a comic book. That way, we would find out what happens to each of the characters, you know?

Ashley is certainly talented. At first, I wasn't sure how she'd be in the show, but after the first episode I was completely hooked. Savannah was my favorite character for sure!

Oh wow! I'm really glad to hear it was very popular over there. Maybe that can motivate them to bring it back in some way. I seriously hope so!

I never honestly watched the show, though I have had the same experience with a series. It really does suck when a show you love gets canceled for no apparent reason.

Yeah, it's sad when a series gets canceled, especially one with such promise. I always feel that at Joss Whedon series. But, alas, it shall live on for me! And in DVDs (hopefully.)

Hopefully. And then that show gets replaced with a show that's almost exactly the same or horribly pointless. *sulks* The world of television sucks.

What is this Hellcats you speak of? Also, yes it sucks when good shows get canned! Oh well such is life. But I will admit that sometimes it just feels good to rant and get everything out. I love this picture! The colours and yes the anatomy looks really good! It has a sweet poignancy to it as well.

It's a now canceled drama that aired on the CW, centered around a college cheerleading team. And, yes, ranting can help. XD And thanks! I am very glad that you liked it. I certainly had fun drawing it. :3

Wait a minute let me get this straight. Were some of the characters actually lesbians, or was that just subtext? Cause if so I mean wow, that's good to see more diversity on TV.

:iconfortheloveofpizza:
fortheloveofpizza Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
There was a character at first that they'd set up to be a lesbian, but she didn't get worked into the main plot. But, there's a LOT of subtext between the two lead girls, Marti and Savannah, and one of the actresses, Ally Michalka, had mentioned that even they were aware of the subtext and that the writers were still planning on bringing in a lesbian thread. To me it suggested it might be between those two, but, now the world will never know.

I've never seen this show, but I tend to avoid live-action shows set in high school. Reality is torture enough, thank you.
Nevertheless, your art is amazing as always, and who am I to say no to lesbian cheerleaders? I'd have to turn in my Kigo card, and that sure as hell ain't happening.

They're actually college students in a college cheerleading team. It takes the whole cheerleading thing a lot more serious, because at that stage, a lot of people are pursuing it as a career, instead of just a "high school thing" which for me adds to how good the show is.

Heh, true. Never deny lesbian cheerleaders. ;p

Well, now I'm interested...after the show is canceled. Just like when I fell in love with Buffy the Vampire Slayer at the beginning of the last season. Figures.
*le sigh* At least I can download the old episodes.

There are some ways to watch it online, and even if it's canceled now, I think it's well-worth trying it out.

Excellent. Now all we have to do is get Glee off the air and kill Michael Bay and Stephanie Meyer, and all will be at peace.

Eh, I like Glee at some points. I definitely think it gets some things really right, along with other things really wrong. I'm not impassioned to love or hate it, just somewhere in the middle, really.

Really? Oh well, whatever.

BTW, didn't that show have a lesbian cheerleader for like, one episode, then they retconned her straight?
Reply
:iconfortheloveofpizza:
fortheloveofpizza Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2011
Well, not whatever for me, but I'm sure for people who didn't watch it.

She wasn't retconned straight as much as she was just never used again. There was an interview about it, they just didn't know how to fit her character into the plot they were working, but they were still planning on working in a lesbian story anyway. I like to think it was going to be with Marti and Savannah; they had enough subtext for it, seriously. The world may never know.
