Crash is without doubt one of the iconic mascot characters from the 1990s, starring in his personal horrible live-action commercials, carrying cool shorts and fingerless gloves, and consuming wumpa fruit. Although many people thought we knew Crash, it turned out that we didn’t truly keep in mind what this man seemed like. He’s orange? He has ears? He’s vaguely triangle formed? He has shorts?
Now we have a mixture of media, some previous references, and a variety of good bandicoots in right here. Additionally, numerous Polygon employees discovered what a bandicoot was in the present day, apparently.
“After what looks like two stable months reviewing some actually difficult video video games, I’m completely fried. Mentally and bodily. I utterly forgot we had Attracts in the present day, and when Slack pinged me I discovered I had neither a pencil nor a bit of paper anyplace close by. So it is a chunk of 2×4 from… it’s most likely from the cockpit I constructed. Or perhaps underneath a CPU that was within the closet. No matter. I began on the ft, and was going for like a Phineas and Ferb lookin’ … factor. I bought the the waist and realized I’d made a very, actually terrible compound fracture of Crash’s leg. There was no going again. I’m going to go take a nap earlier than dinner.”
“Who’s Crash Bandicoot? Is a “bandicoot” an actual animal? Do they put on sneakers? Ought to they? These are the kinds of questions that I hope to boost on this piece. The solutions are, after all, unknowable.”
“I completed my first Crash early (as a result of I used to be utilizing a tiny golf pencil with no eraser) so I made a decision to attempt my hand at drawing an actual bandicoot. Seems, I’m one of many solely folks at Polygon who truly is aware of what a bandicoot is. Anyway, I really like him very a lot.”

“Wow! As standard I began with the ears. However after I by accident made Crash’s nostril method too slim I knew I needed to decide to… no matter that is. My coworkers instructed me that Crash’s Dorito-shaped physique is nice and recognizable so I’m happy with what I’ve completed right here.”
“I believed this is able to be simple, however as I bought to the face, the picture of Crash in my minds eye melted away. As an alternative, I made a decision to focus my energies replicating his textures: fuzzy orange fur, irregular denims, shiny learn sneakers. Oh, and I gave him the “cowabunga” hand gesture. Looks like a factor Crash would do.”
