Crash Coco Pura and Baby T - part 2

Here's more art for Crash Bandicoot fans. This is a follow up for a post from a few days ago featuring Crash and Coco and their pets Pura and Baby T. They're concept sketches from a session with Naughty Dog. Not sure if these have been seen before. Perhaps a couple of these entries are new to publication. I leave it to the experts here to determine that. The drawings are dated February 26 1998 and are photocopies of the originals made the day they were created. Hope you enjoy them.

Was most of the artwork just done in pencil? There doesn't seem to be much coloured artwork.

In my experience wortking on Crash Almost everything on my part was drawing with either pencil or black line pen and markers. There were times when I got into color such as the initial background design concept color comps for the first Crash game. Also I took it upon myself to work with color on Jak and Daxter for a while but ND wanted to do this aspect of development on their own and had to go back to just drawing. I tried guys but they were pretty much self centered when it came to color unfortunately. It would've been nice to create in color more than what I did.

I suppose there's no harm in making extra photocopies and then colouring and seeing how they could of looked, that would be cool!

I'v acquired a batch of art supplies this past week that will help in creating in color more than before. I'm thinking in terms of working in color again. We'll see what happens.

Good, more never seen before art! I'm glad you can show this to us :).

Is it weird that I check back here like 15 times a day hoping for more art?

I apologize for the long delay this week in following up with more art. It's been extremely busy for me as I'm working on expanding my school. I'll be on schedule again very soon.

Matt said...

I'll take that as a polite way of saying yes! :)

You're not the only one. Many people visit my blog numerous times during the day. It's supposed to be a daily blog and I've been pretty good about it for over a year. It's been an intense but positive week and I'm getting back to my rhythm. I appreciate your patience Matt and everyone else as well!
