J&K - The Road to Daxter - Part 3

Following up on a previous entry from January 3 here's a look at a couple of the more appealing versions of Daxter from Sony's "Jak and Daxter" while he was going through more of a monkey look. I generated a high volume of development work for Daxter. These two drawings are an abbreviation of  this phase.

Cool, I didn't expect Jak to start off as anamorphic character.

Hi Joshua. This is Daxter. The character of Jak started out here...

There's several follow up entries on the blog showing his evolution.

I like how most of theses Daxter concepts look very much like redesigns of Crash and even the second one looks like Spyro a bit.

This is a small sample of all the work that went into Daxter. I tried lots of different approaches. Man, at least 80 separate concept designs before I got the character. Maybe more. Not sure. If some of them look like Crash or Spyro I wasn't aiming for it. Just turned out that way.
