There are some projects that are more fun than others, and then there are projects which are so frikkin' cool that every time you think about them you grin and want to work on it some more. Animal Creator is one of those.
All the images above were created using Animal Creator's easy interface.
Animal Creator is an iPad app developed by me and the incalculably awesome Sam Madden. Using a library of real animal parts, you can create your own all-new crazy mix-up animal. Based on the parts that you've chosen, the animal is assigned a unique name and also a nique sound. You can color in your animal and email your finished creation to your friends, or post it directly to Facebook. You can also go further and place your animals in a number of different settings, resize them and flip them and arrange how you wish, and even add text and small icons.
There are many best parts about this project, but one of the highlights is watching the little kids in my life play with their app and create their own new animals. The other best part was working on such a great project with such a great friend like Sam.
did all the art-related tasks for the app, and Sam did all the programming-related ones.
