(character: blacksad/zootopia au yakov)
hear me out!
i know this isn't my usual content, but bear with me. i've been wanting to get my hands on a copy of the blacksad comics for ages and i finally read the first issue last week. the art style is really really good, and i recommend it to everyone, especially those to whom 'movie noir zootopia on crack' sounds like a good time.
the reason i bring this up is because the creators of the comic had a very interesting approach towards designing their characters. instead of humanizing animals, as a lot of other animal centric media does, they animalized people.
this got me thinking, what would my own characters look like if they were to live in the world of blacksad (or at least zootopia or something)? therefore, may i present to you: yakov the siberian cat. according to a book i've got, siberian cats tend to be very independent, but display a "dog-like" loyalty towards their owners.
