Captain N: GameBoy Designs by filbarlow Captain N: GameBoy Designs by filbarlow
I was digging around in my tubs of old designs and I found these sketches from 1990 that I'd forgotten all about. There was a faded fax accompanying the art, where I was asked by a couple of DiC Producers to do the initial designs for the Game Boy character on the animated show Captain N (Dated 14th Feb 1990). I'm not a fan of turning inanimate objects into characters but I gave it my best to give life to a product.

Nintendo made no contact with me, so I was free to throw my own ideas out there.

These are incredible designs!  Very lively!  I like how you tried more than one new thing with each design

There were a lot of shows that I didn't work on, but they probably weren't up to much.

Why is there a 1990 copyright year on the sketches with the title "Captain Nintendo" when the series was renamed Captain N prior to airing in 1989?

 

Also, was DiC really thinking of adding Gameboy to the series baak in 1989?
