Check this out Crash fans! Behold! Look what I discovered today! This my friends is the original five pose character rotation for Crash Bandicoot! Yes indeed! The authentic one and only rotation ever created for Crash back when he was Willy the Wombat in early 1995. The date on one of these poses is February 1995. And all the drawing except for the 3/4 front view are the actual artwork and not a photocopy.
Rotations are a standard necessity in animation production for character designs. This is what I did for Willy/Crash using the 3/4 front view as a starting pose. The drawing is based upon a clean up I did of the sketch Naughty Dog sanctioned as the official look of the character. The images were used to create the CG model of the first Crash. They're primal in the creation of the final version of the character in his earliest days.
This is the first time these images have been seen by anyone since the very beginning of Crash and the first time they've been published as far as I know. Hope you enjoy them!
