Remember that one time I said I’d made H.R. Pufnstuf in Spore? Well, i made these three some while ago and they turned out rather unsettling. And they animate terribly, Pufnstuf’s jaw, neck and neck frills like to slide through each other whenever he moves. And Cling and Clang look like little spraypainted monkeybirds.
Try to recreate anything not from Spore in Spore and it’s almost guaranteed to be terrifying. If it’s an actual creature, anyway. Static objects like vehicles and buildings tend to be less freaky.
Speaking of which, I might make the Rescue Racer next. I bet that’ll be a real pain in the tail-end to make.
I went into my parents’ attic last weekend and found an old box full of stuff from when I was a kid. This was one of many old comic books quickly turning into dust, along with lots of toys I had as a boy. I was 10 years old in 1972, and finding this box was a bittersweet moment. How time flies.
