After seeing this at the Ducks and Lemurs LJ, it inspired me to try my own... with thanks and apologies to the originator of the template utilized here. This is a character reference post, tailored specifically for upcoming projects, commissions, trades etc.

It's been under wraps for a bit, in terms of development of the characters and storylines, but the main elements are there at least. In this universe live a group of funny tween animals that walk among human characters and communicate with some talking animals. So, in the tradition of classic TV, they are the only group of humanoid critters in their world and nobody would give it a second thought. XD

Just a note: For this series, the main animal characters are drawn in a borderlined humanoid style with human body proportions. They walk upright, talk, and wear clothing. It's very much similar to characters from books like Mr. Toad, Stuart Little and Babar. Costuming in verbatim is encouraged, with exceptions.

CHARACTERS

Digby Spader
Species: Groundhog (Marmota monax)
Gender: Male
Description: The main antagonist of the group. He has brown fur with light brown hands/feet/muzzle, dark brown snout, and a big overbite. Has a human mop top with small brown ears poking out of the sideburns. In my drawings, Digby has only four fingers on each hand, a stocky build and a wardrobe consisted of a green shirt over a white t-shirt, blue jeans, sneakers and semi-transparent eyeglasses. Clearer lenses are encouraged.
Personality: Friendly, booksmart and courteous to others.

Morey DiRusso
Species: Forest Polecat (Mustela putorius)
Gender: Male
Description: This cool cat has standard ferrety fur markings with a dark brown mask/hands/feet/ears, dark grayish snout, and orange hair on his head. Like Digby and the others, he's only got four fingers on each hand. Morey sports a brown porkpie hat, a green and yellow T-shirt over a gray long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and skater shoes. Feel free to draw your own interpretation.
Personality: Easy going, down to Earth and full of life!
