I love this show. I did before working on this pair, but now I REALLY love this show. You'd think that meticulously scrutinizing cartoons would ruin them, but the Jetsons really holds up for me.
It's counter-intuitive, but line work is not nearly as important in a pair like this as color choice. Choosing the right color palette can make all the difference in creating a likeness of familiar characters like the Jetson family. Imagine George Jetson with yellow hair instead of brown. It's weird, creepy, and ruins the entire likeness. Luckily, I've got a lot of markers to choose from these days, so matching color is possible.
