Polar Bear's Design

Today we're here to show you on our Polar Bear's design including simple animation sprites, facial expression and our reference point. Originally the bear was designed without any outfits in mind, but it blended into the icy environment and that was a problem due to the primary color scheme of the entire game was blue. We needed to distinguish the playable character with the rest of the game environment.

Reference point from Cartoon Network show: "We Bare Bears". Initial concept of the Bear.

Added facial expression and shadow on the edges of the Bear.


Added a red scarf, making the Bear stood out from the icy environment in addition to simple animation sprites.

The red scarf definitely made it stood out. As an added bonus, our team think that its more relatable as it had human-elements on it. The facial expression was to represent various actions in the game, providing feedback. Down the road on our plans, our artist would be polishing the animations and adding touch-ups to the overall game art. We can't wait to show you more! Stay tune~
