Dart is a time-traveling rabbit who served as a welcoming character for a since-cancelled mobile game called ‘Bubble World.’ In this game, bubbles of time had become destabilized and Dart guided you to various locations and time periods to fix things.
My initial direction for the character design was to design a time-traveling rabbit who might be a cross between Dr. Emmett Brown and Alice in Wonderland‘s White Rabbit. As we iterated on the character, he became a she and there was a bit more Judy Hopps influence than White Rabbit. Once a general direction was locked in, I moved onto many options for clothing and uniforms.
Dart ended up showing up throughout the game to introduce the scenario, instruct you on how to play the game, on the game’s title screen, and on the game’s app icon. Rather than use the same image of her over and over, I redrew here many times to fit the various uses.
