My gallery is a weird hodgepodge characters and fandoms, from surly plantdragons to odd half-insectoid monstrosities. When it comes to fanart, I tend to stray from topic to topic in hopes that I don't bore people with random obsessions.

I hope to keep improving so don't be surprised if I do weird experiments with textures and colors and stuff like that in Photoshop.

90's Crash Bandicoot Cartoon Footage Found

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 18, 2015, 1:23 PM

Hey, guys! Still really busy due to house hunting and job, but I had to share this.

I'm positive that's Jim Cummings singing that theme song.

You know how they keep cancelling Crash Bandicoot games as of late? Well, turns out that trend started in the 90's when Crash Bandicoot almost had a cartoon in the golden age of animated TV shows.

It looks...not amazing (and apparently one of the reasons it got cancelled was because of quality), but it definitely looks better than a lot of videogame cartoons that actually came out (looking at you, Zelda cartoon) and the fact that we almost had a cheesy Crash Bandicoot cartoon in the 90's is downright infuriating.

We almost had this! We almost had this crappy, musically inept cartoon! And we would've loved every minute of it! I would've bought the DVDs!

Oh man, if someone tells me they were going to make a Spyro cartoon, my brain's going to erupt.

Hey, buddy!  Commission's done!  ;)
Turquoisephoenix Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2015  Student Filmographer
Oh goodness, the sound I made when I saw it. It was like a cross between a dolphin screech and a dinosaur roar. You finished that commission at a speed I wish I could do, because my commissions tend to take at least a month. Absolutely fantastic!

I'm so glad I asked for Pamela's Father because you drew it so wonderfully horrible and hurts my heart just looking at it, which is why I shall cherish it forever.

But yes, thank you so much. Thank you!

OMG!!!  I'm so glad you liked it, that means so much to me!!  I finished it so fast because you're cool and I had a lot of fun with it!  //u//

I still love your versions of gibdo dad above all else.
Turquoisephoenix Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Student Filmographer
Eeee, I'm so glad I gave you a subject you had fun with. Your Gibdo Dad drawing was just so superb I needed more.
And aww, you flatter me. I'm not cool at all if one of my favorite characters is the main villain from the Zelda game with trains in it.

And awww, I'm glad you like my version of Gibdo Dad. For some reason, my version comes off as a great deal dorkier and not as scary than other drawings of Gibdo Dad and that probably works in his favor. 
Hopefully it won't take two years to draw him again since people really like it when I do. I think I'll either attempt to draw something more light-hearted this time (I had sketches of him being less...terrifying that I never finished) or maybe draw him where it was just after he got bitten and he's still more human but maybe has some bandages. Because I'm awful.
