The Making of Igloos

Hi Penguins!

Igloos were recently released to all penguins across the island. If any of you are wondering about their development, look no further! Sam has all the latest in her most recent Island News Blog Post...

Hi penguin pals,
Bringing igloos to Club Penguin Island was the dream since the very beginning, and we were incredibly hyped to make it a reality in the 1.8 update! Our team worked tirelessly to make them fun, interactive, customizable, and special down to the very last detail––a penguin’s home is its sanctuary, after all!
We thought it would be fun to give you all a look into our igloo creative process with some authentic, never-before-seen concept art! Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
Step One: Thumbnail Sketch
Our artists kick off the creative process with a quick “thumbnail” drawing, which will be used to give a general idea of what their vision is and what they will need to move forward!
Step Two: Whitebox
When it comes to more complex creations like igloos, our artists will make a “whitebox” version so that the concept has the right dimensions for a penguin. Consider this a 3D sketch!
Step Three: Refined Sketch

This is just a clearer and more detailed sketch, based off the dimensions of the whitebox.
Step Four: Color Concept
We’re almost there! This is the final stage of the concept art before it goes on to a 3D artist!
Step Five: Final Model
Annnnd, wah-lah! Once a 3D artist has modeled and textured the color concept, you get the final model! It is now ready to be imported into the game.
We hope you enjoyed learning more about this process, penguin pals! If you’d like to see more concept art in the future, let us know in the comments!
Waddle on!

Thanks for the fin-tatsic load of information, Sam! I really loved the whole process. What about you? Feel free to let me know in the comments below with your opinion.

Until next time, waddle on!
