Crash Bandicoot 1 - Crocodile and Shark

You may recall sometime last year when I posted some images of characters developed for Willy the Wombat / Crash that were never used. One of them being a crocodile. Here's the design I'm referring to followed by the revised version based upon Naughty Dog's input. The later drawing is dated April 1995.

Also there was a shark I created for the first Crash game. This is what I posted last year followed by a design for a hammerhead shark of sorts dated March 1995. I don't know if the hammerhead design or if the second crocodile design has been published before but I'm sure I'll find out soon thanks to the Crash experts on the blog.

Great design again! The crocodile is still my favourite of all the designs you show us that never made into the game, He looks like a good guy that maybe owns an Hotel or a resort on the island.
I see that the shark never was an antropomorphic character but a normal Shark. The ones in Crash 3 look exactly like the first design you posted.

Really nice designs Charles the first Croc. has a feel that he's in Acapulco. The shark designs are simple and to the point with really clean shapes.

This shark design was used in Crash 3 and even in later non-Naughty Dog games like Twinsanity and Tag Team Racing. And it's one of my favourite designs! :)
