Yes, I have.  Nicely drawn up to a point.

I just wish the conversations would be more about the characters' personalities rather than discussing panties and body parts.    If I have to think of a reason why The Get Along Gang concept has not been revived by the American Greetings company in any officially released form since their mid-1980s run, it would be just that. 

Drawing characters who are minors that are in a concept created for customers who are minors and the young at heart is too sensitive an issue.  That's why I prefer to draw gag panels and the kids doing things as in the original aim of the concept rather than "pin-up" posing.  I didn't create the characters and I don't own the rights to the characters...so keeping within the company line with how the kids were depicted in its original concept form would be prudent in a creative (and in a legal) integrity sense.

A lot of artists know of the characters...but not of the message the characters stand for.  That's disappointing.

Absolutely agree.  Nonetheless, I thought it interesting to see how a different artist interpreted the gang.

It always is.  

The more good art with the characters, the better...provided they don't go way "out of character."

I always noticed many "pin-up" drawings always have one character in a "look at me" pose.
The Get Along Gang group is at its best when two or more of the characters interact, turned their attention to the ones they are interacting with.  Think that is why good Get Along Gang art within character is rare.

My OC's.

I created them as anthropomorphic foxes since I don't draw human characters too well. 

I commissioned artists better than me to depict the characters as expressive manga or cartoony human characters for a different take on the characters.

I'll commission new art from other artists when I have the budget for pay for them.

I really like how the characters are drawn by those artists.  Great designs.
