Crash Nitro Kart - Road to Velo - part 3

As I progressed with my journey towards the character of the Emperor Velo for Crash Nitro Kart in 2002 I put down anything that came to mind looking for something that was unique and unusual. When you're in the process you're aware that most of what you're doing will be rejected. What you're looking for is the one sketch that gets a response that clears the path to a final design. First time these drawings have been published.

In case it doesn't read below, this fellow's nose is above his eyes.

Nice designs of Velo Charles! The first one is probably the closest to the final design.

Velo got a lot of designs for sure. Those are so different from each other that they could be different characters.

That's the great thing about designing characters from scratch. There's infinite possibilities of what they could look like. I was given a lot of freedom with the development of Velo and had a lot of fun working on the character.
