Crash Bandicoot 2 - Polar Bear designs

Something else for the Crash fans and historians. These are concept drawings I created on March 28, 1997 for the development of Crash 2. Polar bear designs intended as part of the game play. A baby polar bear and its mother. I'm sure you recognize this. I didn't get into exploration of the look too much as they were incidental characters and not something major to the project. Kept it simple and direct. Still they're part of the legacy of Crash so here ya go!

Hey Cocoa-Cola Bears, eat your heart out!

I love the look of Polar and the Mamma Bear Charles, it's so cute and I love the emotions they express!

Did the Wild Boar levels from Crash 1 inspired you or ND the gameplay for the Polar Bear levels? Also, did you give Polar the puppy-like qualities that passed on to future games?

Polar is so cute, and now we know that the bigger polar bear is actually Polars mother, but there a re several bears in Crash 2 so isn't clear how is the real mother.
However thanks for sharing this infos :)
