On April 3, 2004, the very first episode of Danny Phantom, Mystery Meat, was first aired. The story of a 14-year old boy whose life was changed when he became Danny Phantom, the ghost hero of Amity Park, had piqued the interest of children and adults alike, with its amazing plot and relatable characters.
It has been 17 years since it happened and it all ended after 3 short years, but Danny Phantom was still on the hearts of its devoted fans, keeping the characters alive.
Happy 17th Dannyversary to all Phans out there! ❤️❤️
(This is my first time drawing the 10 years version of them in 4 years.😅 I slightly based it on Amethyst-Ocean's rendition, but with elements of Butch Hartman's original rendition.)
Just in time for the news that we're getting a Danny Phantom comic collab made (not yet a tv show sequel but we'll deal) I finally get off my butt and get my pins made!!!!!! <3
You guys!!!!!! They're 1" in size (width of a quarter, height of a dime), made with nickel plating, and one military metal clutch. They're so cute on bags and purses, straps, totes, pencil cases, you name it, you can pin it!
I finally get to make some cute product fanart for my favorite show of all time, it feels unreal!
This is not a ruse, I have LIMITED stock. I only made 50 and kept one for myself, get em while they're available!!! I'll restock after I sell out, but if you want one now, NOW is the time to get it!
I've been updating my Danny Phantom fan comics on Webtoon for 1 year! Have I ever told anyone that I only first watched Danny Phantom like 3 to 4 years ago, and got into the phandom like 1 year few months ago? Yeah, that's how far I got into it.
So, do I get any art improvement after one year? Ehhh, not much, but it was fun yet slow progress.
So, what inspired me to draw Danny Phantom? It's the undeniably creative phandom. The DP phandom has probably the most content for weird, grim, edgy, creative twist on a kid's cartoon character. And probably the only phandom that has the collective thinking with OC characters and ideas. The amount of phan content is unlimited and still growing.
As for the phan writers? Some of their writings are at professional level and have written stories way more interesting than many canon writers. I can't deny how impressed I am with their writing skills and creativity. I even took inspiration from some of the writers' story telling ideas and incorporated into my webcomics.
When I first started my DP webcomics, I only planned to do for one chapter only, in comic strip format. The reason I started it was because the ending was far from satisfactory. I miss some of the interesting plot and concept after I watched the whole series. I wanted the continuation to the story but I could hardly find any. Since then, I felt the need to fill that missing void and thought, "If I can't get my fill, I will fill that void myself!" 😤 And that, is how the story gets started. However, never have I thought I would get invested into drawing the "continuation" for so long. 🥵
About Danny's design... Danny's hair design was something I struggled with when I drew him in my style. His hair design will always look weird on a side view in 3D form. When I draw comics, I need the characters' hair to be easy for me to draw in different perspective panel. So, I kept his hair in spikes, slightly shorter, with a bit of shounen vibes. That's how his hair turns out in the comic. As for his clothing design, it's pretty iconic and simple. I just kept the design as it is. I know the clothing design could have been better.
If you want more trivia about my DP webcomic, Amity Thereafter, feel free to leave a comment what you're interested to know.
I’m going to do my part in trying to get the word out about finally continuing and/or rebooting a Danny Phantom animated series! Please like and/or reblog this post if you want to see new episodes! I’ll send this post to Nickelodeon’s Tumblr afterwards to hint to them that we really do want this! 😁
Thank you for 16 years of an amazing show, here’s to many more, and thanks to a fun fan base. This show has humor, heart, and a good storyline, thanks everybody for being a great community to be around, God Bless you, carpe diem, and take care.
