Pocket Baby Dragon Helps Kids Learn to Brush Teeth & Clean Up!

It’s been a while since we last posted a story from TutoTOONS game creators. Following up our game artist interviews, we invite you to meet Alessandro Bagatin from Milano, a designer and author of ‘Baby Dragon Tamer’! About the Game Baby Dragon Tamer is a virtual pet type of game with 8 activities for kids and toddlers. After helping baby dragon Aver hatch from the egg, children will have to take care of their new pocket friend: cook and feed, bath, dress up, clean up, exercise flying over the canyon, draw in the cave, and more! TutoTOONS: Hi, Alessandro! Tell us a little about yourself. Alessandro: Hi! I’m a designer and I studied comics at the School of Comics in Milan. I finished my studies in 1991 and worked as a freelance illustrator. In 1995, I had a very formative experience in a small animation studio, and then in 1997, I’ve worked at Animation Band on a few of TV series. I also did some character design, animation and modeling works for a few video game production studios. In these days, I’m going to start at a company that develops motor racing video games. I like movies and TV series, I love to play and watch football (soccer). My hobby is about football too - I play old, historical game Subbuteo and participate in tournaments. I am a very good player. :) Tell us more about your previous game development experience. I had some projects but only one was a game for children, an experimental project, similar to TutoTOONS. Baby Dragon Tamer is my first game with TutoTOONS. What was the most fun part of making Baby Dragon Tamer? The fun part of this project was participating in a community and exchanging ideas and tips with people from various places in the world. And what was the most challenging? In the final part of the project, it took a lot of time to produce marketing materials. What was the most important thing for you when you were creating this game? In my case, I appreciated the support of my team leader Robert Menegus from S. Francisco, he was very sympathetic. What do you think kids can learn from Baby Dragon Tamer? In this game, I think that children can learn to rearrange their room and clean their teeth. :) Are you planning to make more games with TutoTOONS? It depends on my new job! I’m thinking about a game… But at this moment, I don’t have enough time, maybe I can draw a storyboard… We will see. Describe TutoTOONS in 1 sentence. Interesting experience. Thank you! If you have kids around who love dragons and dinosaurs, surprise them with Baby Dragon Tamer game!

Level Up: 1 Hour Drawing Challenge

A month ago our amazing and talented game artists started a very creative weekly tradition. Mondays, at the end of the work, they think up a random artistic challenge and have to complete it in just 1 hour. You may consider this as an inventive game for artists. They can demonstrate their talent and skills while having fun, relaxing and drawing whatever they want. Perfect getaway from your everyday work and very useful exercise for self-improvement. We simply call it Level Up. This week’s topic was “a ruler of insects who can resist physical impact”. Our artists had to reveal this super power by creating character design. Enjoy the results: Creative task of the previous week also involved character design. The tricky part was that the character had to possess the texture of… an apple, a randomly selected thing by our artists. Here’s what they invented: And before that, TutoTOONS artists tried to sneak in Winnie-the-Pooh into Miyazaki’s“Howl’s Moving Castle”. They took a background from the movie and Winnie-the-Poohline art: The challenge was to color the Pooh so it would suit the background nice and pretend that he’s also from Miyazaki’s movie. One of the first Level Ups was about dragons. Our artists used a line drawing by Fuzzycoma - Haku character from the movie “Spirited Away”: The task was to color, tint and shade the dragon. From now, we‘ll be posting the creations of our artists every week. And if you‘re an artist, let‘s upgrade together! Complete the same creative tasks and email us your creations at [email protected]  We‘ll be happy to share it!
