The series of toys for Creationist Cat offered some unique problems. The initial set of three toys featured a very detailed style, with a focus on making sure the cat’s fur properly curves around the face and tail. This detailed style would be something I’d later regret a little, as the decision to design four more cat toys.
The original CC toy is the “naked” cat holding a copy of the bible, the client gave a lot of input to how the cat’s face should look, changing the mouth and eyes multiple times to give the perfect, cheeky expression. Later holiday themed versions of the model featured the cat in different outfits and costumes.
This was designed at the same time I was designing a bunch of Chinese New Year dragons and decorations at my day job. It was a welcome change however, the day job work was all very minimal and featured line art and block colours, so creating a more detailed, shaded dragon was a perfect change of pace.
My favourite parts of this design are the dragon’s teeth and the scales that flow down the back, all the way down the tail.
Client : Creationist Cat
Creationist Cat is a satirical Youtube channel about a cat who was “zapped” by God through the internet, granting him super intelligence and telekinetic powers, which he used to spread the word of Christ. The character of Creationist Cat often finds himself in online debates with online sceptics, who despite seeing a talking, super intelligent cat, demand more proof of the lords power.
I was commissioned to create a set of downloadable models as rewards for the channels online patrons. After the initial set of three toys were finished, more were designed to co-inside with various holidays.
