Jak and Daxter history - The Road to Jak - Part 3

Continuing with another entry to the Jak and Daxter saga in regards to the emergence of the central character of Jak. As the development went into another phase of "Project Y" in 2000 these drawings describe what I was exploring next. Everything at this point was intended as general suggestions since Naughty Dog still had no solid idea as to what they were looking for early on. I was thinking in terms of some sort of royalty based character like a prince or a young nobleman of some kind. Somewhat elfin in nature and appearance and adventurous in spirit.

great work! I was a huge fan of the Jak and Daxter series. These concepts are great, but I'm glad jak turned out looking as he did in the end.

Thank you Erin and yes, the final look of Jak hit the mark.
