CBNS: Crash's First Impression Meme by 123soleil CBNS: Crash's First Impression Meme by 123soleil
I've found randomly this meme on DA, and it's pretty curious that only a few of this one have been completed. Anyways, I think this one fit so well to explain the relationship between many characters from CBNS (CBNS is, to remember, an fanstory about Crash Bandicoot & Cie humanised, following the main events of NaughtyDogs's games). So here we go ~

Crash Bandicoot is the main character, but what is his relationship with the others ?

Voice of Wisdom: AkuAku
Crash found this magic witch doctor mask in a crate, a few time after he and his sister Coco landed on N.Sanity Island after both of them have escaped from Cortex's Lab. AkuAku will follow the youth in all their adventure, by giving them advices. Having a strong protection magic, he'll do his best to protect both of them.

Admire: Penta & Coco
Crash has always admired her little sister, Coco, for being so intelligent for her young age. She has great knowledges in informatic and in mechanic. She is obviously more mature than Crash, and often brings him back to the reality when he dreams too much.
As for Penta, well, this girl (even younger than Coco) can drive. Her skill is uncontestable, and lets Crash voiceless.

Rival: Spyro
Their rivalry began from a misunderstanding about gems. Spyro would appear hostil toward Crash when he'll first meet him.

Crush: Tawna
Tawna has grown beside Crash and Coco, and even if she doesn't share the same blood than them, she considers them as her little brother and sister, and has always taken care of them. Crash has a crush for Tawna, but Tawna sees him rather as a little brother. Crash is also very stubborn on this point ~
Tawna couldn't escape from Cortex's lab and she is still captive in the dungeon.

Wish to battle: Doctors Triumvirate
Neo Cortex, helped with N.Brio and N.Gin, is the origin of Crash's troubles. Cortex tried to get rid of Crash and her sister after he noticed that both of them were failures (the Cortex Vortex didn't have effect of them), but these two escaped. And even if both have escaped, they are still in danger, because Cortex asked his henchmen to track them down.

Wish to be friend with: the Travelers
The Travelers come from others universes, others world etc ... they'll appear randomly on the 3 islands, and they would help Crash and Cie to get rid of some Cortex's henchmen.


J'ai trouvé par hasard ce meme sur DA, et il est plutot curieux de constater que très peu de ce meme ont été réalisé à ce jour. En tout cas, je trouve qu'il correspond à merveille pour expliquer les liens entre les differents personnages de CBNS (pour rappel, CBNS est une fanstory basée sur les événements principaux des jeux de NaughtyDogs, avec les personnages humanisés).

J'ai pas trop le temps de tout traduire en français, peut être plus tard... en attendant les descriptions anglaises sont juste au dessus ;).

"Crash has a crush for Tawna, but Tawna sees him rather as a little brother. Crash is also very stubborn on this point." Because of course, he refuses to accept Tawna seeing him as a little brother rather than a boyfriend. Also I can recognize the characters from the "Wish to be friend with: the Travelers", which are Parappa the Rapper, Sir Daniel Fortesque (from MediEvil), Abe (from Oddworld), Rayman, and Klonoa. Who are the other two? :?
Anyways this is pretty nice, and they look like anime characters! Kiki

awesome, i love your art and your humanized versions of Crash and the characters (especially Spyro, Gex and Coco being my favourites :aww:)

umm this might be a stupid question but the CBNS story, is it written up somewhere to read online or is it just depicted through your art? ^^;
