Crash Coco Pura and Baby T - part 3

Here's the final installment on the collection of images of Crash and Coco Bandicoot with Pura and Baby T from Crash 3. Drawings are dated February 26 1998. As with the entries before they were created at Universal Studios while working with Naughty Dog at their penthouse facility. The last drawing is an attempt at extreme foreshortening. These are photocopies of the originals. I don't think they've been publicly displayed before so this may be another first. The Crash experts out there will know.

Pura is actually Male as stated in Crash Team Racing's credits. That should clear up quite a bit!

The "extreme closeup" one is awesome!
I wish Crash never left Naughty Dog and continued to be great with you, Joe Pearson and everyone else that contributed to make Crash so wonderfull! My favourite trilogy of all time needs a fourth chapter that deserves the name Crash Bandicoot, not like that Twinsanity or Titans crap!

It's really too bad that the original team couldn't stay together. Imagine how much better Crash would've been over the years if ND stuck with it and kept Joe and I involved. The biggest impediment to keeping things going was greed and immaturity. Too many ridiculous soap operas going on. If everyone behaved more professionally and with consideration and used their heads it would've been a different story.
