this prob been asked many times but why did everyone on Filmation have dark eyebrows?
I recently sat down and watched all the He-man and She-ra filmation episodes on netflix I have to ask this one question why is it that everyone on that show had black or brown eyebrows ? just found it odd. did the shows creators or animators ever explain it ?
The only reason I can think of is that it took less time than drawing an outline and painting in the appropriate color.
Ha I never noticed that before, but yeah easy to see...blonde eyebrows wouldn't show through.

Another reason may be that it is a lot easier to make characters more expressive. There is not that much motion in the faces, so a dark eyebrow expresses emotions very quick and that can be a lot easier to be understood by the viewer. Just my 2 cents.
