Adventure Time’s Pendleton Ward made this extensive guide to the rules for drawing Finn and Jake, even while encouraging people to break most of them. The Style guide for Adventure Time allows anyone drawing Finn to occasionally break rules of the style guide itself (and physics) if it allows for a better animation on the character. Style guides usually make it online after being distributed by the show itself in some sort of blog or in an “Art of” book. Occasionally, animators who worked on a show will let the style guide go after they conclude their work on it.
