Track + Field- Sparkster

By UdonCrew
Line Art: Omar Dogan
Colours: Espen Grundetjern

Here's a coloured character design sheet of Sparkster the Rocket Knight done for Konami's New International Track & Field video game on Nintendo DS. The game is available now and includes online multiplayer as well as single cartridge multiplayer.

The character is shown from several angles and with a variety of expressions to guide the animators who model and animate the character in 3D.

I saw this character sheet ages ago, and loved it; Sparkster being one of my largest heroes. You've done him a great justice in this wonderful piece of work. I admire your talent, all through your gallery.

I really loved the original Rocket Knight game.
Did Konami also use this concept for Sparkster's appearance in their iPhone game Krazy Kart?

I Knew his cameo apperance in Track and Field was going to lead to a new Sparkster game!

Oh man! I used to love Rocket Knight, that is so cool!
Oh Man; once more, Udon puts out some quality work:) I gotta ask though; is there a reason why you guys turned him into a mouse? He was an opossum - it's kinda a big deal, since a big part of the level design was having pipes and branches wind through the level that you could hang- and drop- from. I know it's been awhile, and I kinda like the SD style (he sure looks great on the DS screen!), I just wanted to know why the change in animal?

Also, I wanted to know if maybe - just maybe - I could get some comments from a model sheet I did based on the classic 16-bit Sparkster. Gonna model him in 3D, just because he deserves it.


Any comments and criticism are welcome:)
