YUSS I had the idea of the hands having mouthparts too! I also imagined something a bit arboreal very early on, to explain the shoulders. The humanesque features are hardest to explain, especially the neck and "jaw" line.
I just LOVE your animorphs fanart so much... I love the colors on these creatures, the fur patterns you do... everything! gosh, I would pay for a whole book of your animorphs illustrations. These are so fun and cute.
Aw, thanks! That's really flattering ahaha. I really enjoy drawing them, probably too much XD
I haven't been uploading all of them to deviantart due to the really fast sketchy nature of some of the drawings, though. If you wanna keep up on my animorphs sketching I post the majority of it on my tumblr (same name as this account). I'll update my devart to match as soon as possible though. Iiii'm just behind on keeping up on my art accounts haha.
