NEW! A comprehensive group of Exclusive Main Model Sheets can be found here!
A little info on television animation:
When SWAT Kats was made, there were basically two crews- production, and animators. The character designers, along with the writers and producers, draw 'model sheets' for each character to be shown in the show. These model sheets are given to the animators so they know how they are supposed to draw the characters. Usually these model sheets are kept at the animation studio- you don't see them on the internet. So, it's pretty neat that these have been found so long after the show has been cancelled! These were given to me by Rauhnee Ranshanka, so if you want to use these someplace or put them on your site, that's the person to ask.
These are also on Klawz's SWAT Kats Devotional someplace- so if something's wrong with this site, you can get them from hers.
These files are rather large (dimension-wise) because I want to keep them of archival quality - I suggest saving them to disk, and using an image program to zoom out once or twice, to be able to view the entire picture at once.
