Slugterra Development 1 by CreatureBox Slugterra Development 1 by CreatureBox
Last year we had a great opportunity to join forces with Nerd Corps and Disney on an action packed animated series for the 6yr-11yr crowd: Slugterra. The show revolves around the classic battle between good and evil while slinging live ammo in the form of transforming super slugs. After seeing some fantastic test footage we were hooked action, monsters, robotic vehicles whats not to love?

We came on for a few months during pre-production to provide our take on a crazy world they had created. We tackled general style directions, character designs, vehicle designs and countless slugs! As with most productions, several aspects of the show changed before hitting the air. Its great to see several of our designs survived the gauntlet of production.

For the next few weeks we thought wed share some of that slug filled journey and provide a peek into our development process. First up, a glimpse at the hero: Eli!

6yr-11yr crowd?? I'm 17 and I think this show is would think it'd be the same-old "tame the creature/beat the bad guys" show, but it has very unique qualities in it that I think make it worth watching. Thanks for making the show :)!! 
Is the shirt inspired by Prince Valiant?

I'm usually not too open with the newer cartoons (not that I don't like them, but they never seem to satisfy) as well as newer creature-taming/capturing related shows. But THIS. This show is actually VERY good. It's has an interesting plot, it's unique, great characters designs and the slugs are simple, yet very adorable!! I love the blaster idea, too! These concepts are spectacular. It's awesome to see the artist here!
I have seen pretty much the entire show up to this point and your character designs are awesome. :D

Since you've seen most of the show, can you please explain to me why the people underground can't go topside???
If the underground people learned about the surface world, it could be disastrous. They might likely loot or plunder it (one scenario, not a certainty). In addition, it would probably come as a devastating shock that the underground was purposely not allowed to know that their world has a surface and a sky. They might feel wronged and blame it on the surface world people, because the people topside do have knowledge of Slugterra. It's like keeping a child ignorant of reality by telling them that their playroom is the only world they need to know.
