Character Design: Boomer the Kangaroo

Boomer was another one of those rare designs that actually came to me pretty quickly. My first sketch had more of a realistic kangaroo stance – hunched over with a wider bottom – but I quickly decided that it didn’t fit in with the other Sifaka World characters well enough. Sketch two has a more cartoony body, which the client quickly approved. And of course, the hat and outfit were inspired by the Crocodile Dundee flicks. Good times! ;)

You can find Boomer alongside Eggburt the Platypus in the Truffle Shuffle game, located on the Australian continent of Sifaka World. Go check it out, mate!
