So apparently Andalites are my equivalent of the happy pill. Sooo happymaking, guys. You have no idea.

And yeah! Now I have a buncha dumb baby doodles. Experimenting with variations and whatnot. Male and female here... I know it's a popular concept in the fandom but eh, starting to think I'd rather not have such a blatant difference in colour between genders.
Females colour variations in my head-canon do tend to lean a little more to a purple-y blue, but it' not with too huge a difference from the males I think. Plus I'd say Andalite males can probably have a purple-ish colouring too, though it's uncommon.

That's lil!Ax on the bottom there. The others are just random colour tests, stripey variations and whatnot. I figured as kids they'd have less tan on their bodies- that it would spread as they got older. So... yeah.. uh. There's my spiel.

EFF YEAH I'M A DORK

Gosh I love the way you create their body language. This is too cute arraghgrfg

I really like your interpretation of the andalite tail. I never thought of having it go up like that, like a cat or something, but actually it makes a ton of sense (as much sense as andalite tails can make I guess, hurp).

Ahh, thanks! XD 

And yeah my logic for the tails is that if they're possibly used for signalling/emoting, raising them high would make sense, as well as take up far less room and with less potential accidents when in a herd situation. Plus it's an easier place to go from resting to attack, though it takes away a bit of power and relies more on speedy, swiping slashes... which seem to be what the books describe anyway, so I'm pretty happy with it haha. Trying to make sense of the aliens in Animorphs is a big hobby of mine XD

Awww, I really like the little frolicking Andalites in the middle there. :iconloveloveplz: I like the idea of them having faun-like markings, too, that fade when they get older. ^-^
