1989 Model sheet style

A take on Penny from the late 80s, More traditional feminine design in line with the time. I believe Studios then tended to give animators more flexibility when it came to how cartoons were animated, as hallmarks of different studios where fun to spot episode to episode and from cartoon to cartoon. Today, a more stringent and mechanical approach to animation means new cartoons lack "character" and charm as a model sheet is strictly enforced and individual freedom is relegated to portfolio pieces.

I literally said, "oh, wow!" when the picture went fullsize, that's the best compliment I can think of.

I thought that this was legit concept art! I even see the similarites to it's parent property Lupin III. This is really cool - I can almost imagine this being used as a design for older Penny

Interesting. Looks way better than the character design from the new CGI series.

Saw some of her by you, where she's older, a bride.
The thought of her uncle &
the chief crying.

Love Penny's outfits.
Too bad she no longer has the twintails, though.

As far as i know, model sheest were always used. Disney and Warner used them a lot, then they also played with animation, doing stuffs like the one above.
Grown up Penny looks beautiful.
