To celebrate the release of Stranger Things 3 I decided o do a little exercise and design the kids' squad as if the show was a cartoon. My main goal here was to base each character on a different geometric figure to achieve exaggerated and characteristic body shapes.

Cartoon ladies having an anatomically impossible waist to hip ratio is the standard at this point. Snow White is the most proportionally correct Disney princess since animators drew her from a real-life model and were tasked by the big man Walt himself to make her look more realistic and less cartoony. But it would be nice to imagine other characters in this fashion too.
