ever since I drew a Meerkat Axel, I hated it so much, I tried to improve on the design. Now I implemented some changes into the design and remarkably...it's a lot better.
for those of you who don't know. Axel's english voice actor; Quinton Flynn also did Timon's voice in the Timon and Pumba animated series, so it just seemed right for Axel to be a meerkat.
