i wasn't gonna do any more of these for a while at least, but then i remembered fuli exists. and hoo boy
-her coat colour is realy weirdly bright and kinda gross. like a weird lemon colour? more of a personal preference for me ig but i decided to retcon it entirely
-she doesnt have the teardrop markings cheetahs have? i cant understand why. like thats one of the most iconic parts of a cheetah. why isnt it there
- she doesnt have pupils. none of the cheetahs have pupils. i dont know why
-the markings on her ears bothered me. the way the ear rim starts so far down is kinda weird
-i do love the concept of her being a king cheetah, but even still the markings felt kinda wrong. i kept it in essence but i wanted to add the stripey bits and change up her tail a lil
-her snouts annoyingly tiny. even compared to azaad it's just weird and small. i guess to make her look more feminine? idk. i made it a bit bigger
her eyes are HUGE. made em a lil smaller
-cheetah cubs are supposed to be fluffy. im p sure they do make reverence to the fact she's got really soft fur in the show, but if she does like. give her a bit of fluff u kno
while i was here, also made some changes to kion. mostly fluffed his chest out more (there was like an itty bitty bit there already, and i figured if he's a teen his mane's about to start coming through so i guess it should be a lil floofy) - and made the mane on his head longer for the same reasons. I also changed his eye colour. again, personal preference really. i actually thought for ages he had blue eyes anyway and was kinda surprised to find he didn't. idk, i think it'd just be nicer if he had more of nala mixed in u know.
