Day 1 of Mad DashTeam Xbox has posted up day one of their Mad Dash smorgasbord. In this first installment they spoke with Ben Harrison, the Senior Artist/Animator. Harrison explains how Mad Dash came to be.
TXB: Mad Dash has a very "cartoon-like" look to it, what cartoons (if any) influenced you when you designed the characters?
Ben H: I dont think any particular cartoons influenced the look of the Mad Dash characters. Ive always been a fan of good cartoons and of good character design, whatever the style. When I go to design a character, I dont zero in on a particular style or particular character and then try to emulate that style or character. I just go with what feels right for the world they need to live in. The result is usually a combination of a few different things.
