A complete change of gears from Guardians, I was responsible for developing and designing a great deal of the creatures and characters you will see in the CROODS. Myself and Shannon Tindle were the first artists on the project back when Chris Sanders started at Dreamworks in 2007(before Dragons). After a quick detour onto Dragons Carter Goodrich, and Takao Noguchi joined the design team. Over the next few weeks I will show much of my development work from Croods, but I will start with one character that you will not actually see in the final film. This is a little prehistoric proto-pony that was at one time Guy's pet. She actually made it as far as an early Croods teaser poster, but in the 11th hour Belt became his pet and the pony was changed into the little reptilian guy you will see in the final film. Stay posted for much more, and enjoy.
