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 ;)

Walk the Moon's "One Foot" only the line goes.... "One paw in front of the other!"

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:
