So not only is Ratchet & Clank getting a movie in 2015, but now Sly Cooper in 2016! The Sly games have such a cartoony style so this more realistic one will take some getting used to, but the writing and humor of the teaser was spot on to that of the games. I think Sly himself looks pretty good, but Bentley and Murray definitely need some tweaking. The movie is still far off, though, so I have no doubt that they’ll listen to fan feedback and fix things. Here’s hoping the Ratchet and Sly movies end up being great! Makes me wonder if a Jak and Daxter movie could be further down the road…
Update- Ratchet & Clank has a release date of April, 29 2016! Since Ratchet was pushed back a year, Sly probably has as well. I’m assuming Sly won’t be until 2017 now.
“So, back in ancient times, when Vigil was just forming, and Darksiders was but a twinkle in our eye, we created a pitch for Sony to do a Sly Cooper game for PSP. Unfortunately, all I could find were these low res files, and there are a bunch missing which I will try to track down. Pretty different style for me, and incredibly fun. These were all done circa 2005. And obviously, all rights and characters belong to Sony, so don’t do anything crazy with these to get me in trouble.”
Okay, so I’m not taking requests on these sketches, but after drawing Sly yesterday I just had to sketch up a Camelita to match. This is more-or-less her Sly 1-3 outfit with a dash of 4 here and there.
