the kane family


moodboard aesthetics: the kane family

“mom and dad got together in high school, they were in love, then dad knocked mom up, so they got married. connor was born, then they wanted another one so they had me and now they’re going through like a mid life crisis so they’re having another kid. it’s simple, really.” 

When drawing fan art for The Kane Chronicles, please remember:

• Although Sadie Kane and her mother’s side of the family are mostly white-passing, Egyptian people typically aren’t.

• Carter Kane has dark skin and so does his dad and uncle Amos.

• Zia and Walt are both confirmed to have dark skin.

• Most of the Egyptian gods including Bast and Bes (but excluding Anubis and possibly Thoth) have dark skin, unless their skin is another colour like blue.

• It is safe to assume that Cleo, Felix, Jaz, and the other kids all have dark skin.

• It wouldn’t be unlikely if Sadie was the only white-passing Egyptian in their Nome.

• Check the official art before drawing a character as white or white-passing to avoid erasing the ethnicities and races of any more characters.
