Jungle Friends


Hey Everybody - my promises of more posting? Those were lies. I have, however, dug this little goody up from the archives. This is some work I did for an education Flash-based game back a while ago. The client wanted the characters to be VERY simple, almost "fisher-price" like. They didn't want the characters to have legs etc...just basically "ball" lower halves, like you see here. Since they were going to be so small in the game (bouncing around) and it was for little kids I feel the style really worked. The main character was this girl you see above and she is a jungle explorer. She goes around making friends with all these animals. But guys! I know what you're thinking: "oh, isn't this a happy game!"...but there are poachers and hunters ok? So stop smiling.

Yay! The new blog look is awesome!! I should probably consider re-skinning mine at some point. It's grossly outdated.
