Read Africa:  Africa Chapter 1 Cover by ARVEN92


Pups and kittens!
Like Dungeons and Dragons, but better.
I drew this because Binti wasn't cute enough on her own, and because the African wild dogs are probably my favorite characters from this chapter.

From left to right, Binti (F), Fikra (F), Kitendo (M) and Thabiti (M) :)

A few of you asked the meaning behind the wild dog puppies' names. They are named after three traditional African virtues:
"Fikra" is Swahili for "Idea", she represents the Control of Thought,
"Kitendo" is Swahili for "Action", he represents the Control of Action,
"Thabiti" is Swahili for "Consistent", he represents Steadfastness.

Look closely and you'll find clues to their themes hidden in their coats ;)

Enjoy!

Oh, this is so precious! :aww: Kits and pups just having fun and playing together, I'm really looking to Binti befriending the pups in the comic - if their parents are nice to her, that's it. Previously, Fikra's design was my favourite, but now I can't help but admire Thabati's bright golden colors. :love:

I can definitely see the consistent pattern on Thabiti's sides! But I'm a little lost on the other two. :P

Also, it's so weird seeing Binti drawn digitally. I'm so used to her pinkishness in the comic. :D

Look at the top of Fikra’s head. The dark spot is shaped sorta like a lightbulb. Don’t know about Kitendo though, still trying to figure that one out.

Ahh yes, I see it now! And yep, I just looked over Kitnendo's coat and I still don't seeing anything that would represent Action haha.

Aww, I love this :heart: Binti is more than cute enough on her own, but adding the puppies made this almost unbearably adorable :iconhappymeowplz:
Hope we'll get to see a lot more of this kitten's new canine friends.

The coloring, running poses, anatomy, and expressions are all so perfect. Well done :D

Uuum.... well, the first thing I noticed on Fikra that said anything to me was the lightbulb-shaped dark marking on her head. XD Nothing says "idea" like a lightbulb. XD

I'm admittedly lost on the other two..... XD Oooooooh! Unless 'Consistent' has something to do with the repeating stripes on Thabiti's coat?

Kitendo...... erk.... unless it has something to do with the little diamonds on his side 'jumping' over the chasm-like markings (like in a side-scroller game).... I dunno. XD

Do their coats have locations? Symbols? Are they leapord like? Argh!!!! I dunno. 

They em are cute though, regardless. Maybe they'll take Binti in!

Hmmm...
Pup 1: cloud on pelt, for thoughtfulness
Pup 2: cheetah-like spots or targets, for action
Pup 3: stripes on fur look kind of like a net, something that grips and doesn't let go... for steadfastness? I'm reaching lmao!
