Crash Bandicoot-Original Cast by Echo-Gecko Crash Bandicoot-Original Cast by Echo-Gecko
Ok this is my tribute to the first Crash Bandicoot game hence all the original characters. It's an old game now but it's still so EPIC! It was also the first playstation game I ever played. The only one I left out was Aku Aku (sorry) but that was just because if I had included him it would have messed up the composition. I hope I've drawn the characters right, I did refer to the original concept art, though I tried to draw them in my own style as well. I found Crash surprisingly hard to draw. I didn't think it would be hard since I've been playing the games for so long-I think he's just an akward character to draw.

For anyone who doesn't know the characters are (from top to bottom, left to right): Dr.N.Brio, Dr.N. Cortex, Pinstripe Potoroo, Koala Kong, Tawna Bandicoot, Papu Papu, Ripper Roo, and of course Crash Bandicoot.

HOPE YOU APPROVE CRASH FANS!! :#1:

Crash Bandicoot and all the other characters are (c) to Naughty Dog (originally)/Radical/Sierra)

Crash Bandicoot 1 is AWESOME!! I used to play the PAL/European version of this brilliant PS1 game when I was a kid. I absolutely LOVE this game! I miss that game and I also miss my old Sony PS1. My favourite character in Crash Bandicoot series is Crash Bandicoot and my favourite villains are Dr. Neo Cortex, Tiny Tiger, Dingodile and Ripper Roo

Well, Aku Aku seemed to be more of a gameplay mechanic in the original game but still, this game brings so much memories.

I approve a lot, played this in 2004 (after CTR, chapters 3 and 2, Crash Bash and CNK) and this was the hardest (with some terrible levels like Slippery Climb :/ ) ... but exciting to complete as well

R.I.P Crash (ND games) you will be missed dearly. Sadly ND are now acquired by Sony and don't own the rights to Crash anymore. Jak and Uncharted are ok but no where near the same league as Crash.

crash bandicoot could have become playstations counterpart to nintendo's mario.
Its sad they had to totally destroy such a good game series.

Nice art!

Wow! This is a great combination of the original Crash characters. :)

It would be nice if Naughty Dog bought back the license and registration of the franchise, but it'd be difficult for the developers to come up with newer ideas if they did. :(

Oh my, this is lovely! This brings back instant memories of the ol' Playstation 1 days. You even made Papu Papu way cuter than he is on the actual game xD

Very excellent work here! I can see this being published in a video game magazine, in the fan art section. :)

It'll probably never happen, but it'd be cool if they had a game featuring those eight again.

True, true.

Mind you, I have come up with several of my own concepts in the past, usually incorporating older characters.

For some reason, I see N Tropy, N Brio and Koala Kong working together as a team. For some other reason, I hear Kong with Tiny's Crash of the Titans voice (whilst Tiny has his original voice back).

I have a random mind, I must apologise. ^^;
