Did you know that there’s an entire album of the original concept art for Dizzywood on Flickr? Yes, all of the initial sketches for the design of the world were produced by the incredibly talented artist, Jake Parker. Jake went on to do some amazing things in illustration and animation, including work on the well-known animated movies Ice Age 3 and Rio. Actually, we’re kind of thrilled that he still features all his Dizzywood work on his portfolio page. Check out the Environments section to see some of the early sketches for the lands that eventually showed up in the game, such as the Explorer’s Camp and Canal City. You’ll even see some amazing things that never quite made it into the game, including an incredible car-racing track.
Here are some of our favorite pieces of the original concept art sketches for Dizzywood.
