Discussion 24/10: The Evolution Of Club Penguin's Art Style

Hello Penguins,

Today I will be doing a discussion on Club Penguin's Art Style throughout the years.

2005 - 2007

When Club Penguin started in 2005, everything was drawn for the first time... Obviously. The artists were just learning the techniques on how to draw this type of penguin, so everything was a bit scruffy at first. There were minor shadows, and very odd looking beaks! Towards the end of this art style, the penguins drawn had more sophisticated poses and were being more detailed. The beak remained the same.

2007 - 2009

In mid 2007, Disney bought Club Penguin, and a mass of new employees waddled in. The art style also got an upgrade. Poses were more detailed and the bowling-pin penguin shape started to come out.  Shadows were also improved upon. One of the notable things in this era of art style were the beak and feet, which started to get some neat shadows!

2009 - 2012

In March 2009, the art style got another upgrade, and it was a great one! Poses were used more often, and improved upon the previous art style era. Shadows were deeper and made the penguin look more 3D. Adding to that,  and the penguin itself looked "bigger". Personally, this is my favorite art style because they actually look like penguin should.

2013 - Current

In the first Penguin Style of 2013, penguins around the island noticed quite a few changes again with the penguin art style, which got another upgrade! The penguins were stretched out, making them look slimmer and taller... This was the biggest change from the previous art styles. The feet were also thinner and longer, and the shadows were better then ever before. In my opinion, this is the worst change to the art era, as the penguins look older, when Club Penguin is a game for kids.
