Polygon tries to draw Crash Bandicoot from memory #ArtTuesday #Crash
While Crash may not be as renowned as a certain mustachioed plumber, the bandicoot certainly holds a place in the video game mascot hall of fame. This exercise from Polygon is good for a laugh – try it yourself! You may be surprised what fails you first, art skills or memory.
Crash is one of the iconic mascot characters from the 1990s, starring in his own horrible live-action commercials, wearing cool shorts and fingerless gloves, and eating wumpa fruit. Though many of us thought we knew Crash, it turned out that we did not actually remember what this guy looked like. He’s orange? He has ears? He’s vaguely triangle shaped? He has shorts?
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
