Work in progress! Hated the line for this but then I went in and added the small details, such as in the hair and on the shoes and I started to love it. Did a different eye style with this one because since it’s in monotone I think this looks better.
I was asked to paint this Dearmine Debon cat boy to recreate his factory faceup in general but removing the pink shades, and I added more details to his nose. Also please pay attention to his ears painting job, as I painted the hairs in 3 different colors to match his wig.
Jazzy Rowe could have died, because of her roommates racism. The school tried to intimidate her into silence, but she speaking out and the multi cultural organizations at the school are meeting tomorrow (Nov. 1st) to support her.

Okay kids today we’re gonna talk about Edmonia Lewis
Edmonia was a sculptor in the 19th century, and was half African-American and half Native American. She was one of the first people of colour from America to earn international fame and success for her artwork. She started sculpting during the civil war and trained under some of the most influential abolitionist sculptors of the time.
Not only was she a successful WOC artist, but she sculpted other people of colour in the neoclassical style:
Forever Free (1867)
Old Arrow-Maker and his Daughter (1866)
The Marriage of Hiawatha (1866)
Do you know how rare it was in the 19th century to have a piece of artwork show black people or Native Americans without them being ‘savages’ or half naked? Let me tell you, it’s pretty damn rare.
She would purposely leave her women more clothed than her male figures to desexualise them, and I probably don’t need to tell you why that was important at this time (if you really want to see how white artists saw black women, look up American Slave and The Virginian Slave).
Unfortunately she was made to make her female figures look more European as she got backlash accusing her of inserting herself into figures BUT they’re still hugely impressive given that most famous sculptors at this time had teams of people working on their work and adding all the details by hand, whereas Edmonia did absolutely everything herself.
Basically I think about Edmonia Lewis a lot and I think more people should know about her.
First i’ll talk about smaller details cuz why not?
The animation crew really go above and beyond with detail, like here for example, adding in this small detail of Neil struggling to keep his balance is nice to see because it really adds just that little extra layer of ‘awkward noodle limbed kid’ that is Neil to a T.
The slow movement that builds up in contrast to the quick snap back to their initial position is so fluid and it’s satisfying to watch here. Moments like this really gives so much personality to the characters and adds emphasis to their speech in very much the same way real people speak with their movement and actions.
I know i already talked about this part before (specifically the use of stretch and squash) but i can’t help but bring it up again because It’s SO good. I love how David is animated, he’s constantly being exaggerated and it fits his character perfectly. This jump is so extra….!??
Even when characters are standing still, they all stand different from one another in a way that says something about their characters.
Neil’s raptor hands
Max’s hands in his hoodie
Nikki’s hands on her hips
If they were silhouettes we would still be able to tell who’s who
thoughts on the character design:
I really appreciate that everyone has different shapes in their designs, no one shares the same shapes. (except Daniel and David obviously because they’re twins) Almost all the campers even wear their Camp Campbell T-shirts differently! I also like the variety of different skin tones.
In many animated series/films there’s a tendency to make everyone look too similar, I’m glad cc avoided doing that. Everyone’s design is very pleasing to look at.

How do you draw a closed snoot? Amd also how do you draw an open snoot from the front?
I draw closed snoots pretty much the same way as opened ones, as illustrated in this one tutorial i did a bit ago! Same goes for drawing opened mouths from the front.
for closed muzzles, I tend to do placement lines for where the base of the muzzle connects to the face (and also as a marker for where the bottom of the eyes are gonna go!) and a line down the center of the muzzle to help me place the nose and make the upper lip indent shape! This is something I honestly don’t do too much bc I mostly forget but it helps SO MUCH
end result from using said guidelines hfhfh
as for opened snoots, here’s a lil thing using the same formula as my first tutorial;
Firstly, I start out roughing out where I want everything to go! The purple line in the right image helps me place the top corners of the mouth, where i’ll be dragging the lines for the sides of the mouth in a sec. This is a good time to map out how you want your expression to go, since the corner of the mouth I find makes it easier to connect everything else as you’re going along.
After you get that sorted, drag the lines (blue lines) down from the corners (it’s perfectly fine if the lines don’t match up with the corners, it doesn’t have to be exact!), which are the rest of the mouth. Now is a good time to go in and tighten up/stretch the mouth shape to however it’ll benefit your character/style/expression. My sona has pretty round shapes, so I keep things rounded for her most of the time. (unless i’m exaggerating her expression, then things tend to get a little bit sharp and asymmetrical)
Annnnnnnd then you go in and start adding details! Teeth, tongue, etc. You can see I kinda shortened the lower jaw shape lines a bit after everything since I noticed the mouth was a bit too wide/sliding to the right.. Just so it aligns with the top part of the jaw a little easier!! this is pretty much how I do all my mouth/muzzle stuff, so I hope it helps a bit!
