HUEY is Militant, JASMINE is innocent. by LeSeanThomas HUEY is Militant, JASMINE is innocent. by LeSeanThomas
Here's some more Boondocks Pre-production artwork.

One of the things that i believe stands out about the production of The Boondocks ( and is one of the most tedious) when compared to other prime time animated comedies out there is the fact that the characters ( if you pay close attention) have several wardrobe changes through-out any point in an episode.

For the boys, when they are inside the house, the rule is they do not wear shoes.

when a day changes to night, the characters may wear pajamas. If a day passes in one episode, the characters change outfits completely. 

Above are conceptual sketches of options for Huey & Jasmine Wardrobes for Season 2 i submitted to Aaron, Seung Kim and the producers for approval.

Huey has always had a more conservative touch to urban fashion compared to Riley; Polos, military fashion w/ long sleeves, walking shoes and running shoes

Jasmine always repped a scaled back fashion style; denim, capris, sandals cardigans, velcro strap shoes. looking at J.Crew ads back then helped. We also tried to stay away from her wearing skirts or dresses in the show.

I never realized they changed clothes (looks back at episodes) Thats pretty cool. was it hard at all trying to come up with what a character would wear whenever and stuff?

I just love stuff like that. so many animated shows skimp on that little extra. like how long can homer wear tha same shit?? lol. love to so the character as being a real person and those little things like that make the story so much more real.Also when something happens in the plot if effects the next episodes. so many animated show seem like the last episode never happened ,when there is no trace of important stuff that previously happened. The boondocks doesn't fall victim to that and that one of the thinks I love so much about the show.

Dope man, is there a reason you didn't just copy and past the first one and adjust only the clothes?

yay can't wait. My b/f doesn't care for cartoons, anime, art in general but he watches the sh!t out of Boondocks. At least I won him over on something I love. In my years of cartoon watching, i think changing clothes helps make the characters feel more realistic. I remember watching "The Weekenders" for the first time and was like "they changed their clothes!!" It makes a difference even if ppl don't realize they changed clothes.
