Kinectimals expression sheet by shoomlah Kinectimals expression sheet by shoomlah
I am just now realizing that I can post some of the work I've done for, well, work- what a novel idea.

I've been working on and off Kinectimals™ since its pre-Kinect days as "Zoo Live," so I have a lot of art lying around that I'll try to post. This was the expression sheet for the tiger cub, trying to explore how much we could use emotions to drive a player's actions in lieu of blatant on-screen instructions.

God help me, I still love that giggly little tiger at the bottom.

These are so adorable and expressive. I've never owned an XBOX or played the game, but these sketches make me want to try it. :D So beautiful, the anatomy is spot-on. Love it!

This is so adorable c: Doing humanized expressions with more realism-based animal anatomy is fun, haha. And all of these are really well done. I love the tiger at the top lefthand corner that looks like it's seen a spider or something.

Aw! You worked on the game? Man, I want this as a poster, with your autograph :3 I want to get an Xbox so bad-it'll be the closest I'll get to owning a tiger...lol. You'd think I was a 10 year old girl, but I'm really 27-Ha Ha.

I do have a question. Are all the playable animals cats? I have no problem with this because I love kitties. Just curious. I've not been able to find any videos of the game play other than the commercials.
