Collage and Creatures

Hey guys! :) This is my first post here-- I wanted to share a little story from my class the other day!

So, I teach at a local arts center. During pandemic-times we are unfortunately unable to hold classes in the building itself; as such I'm teaching classes via Zoom and google classroom. This month's class has been Dynamic Collage. :)

My class is pretty much entirely older woman-- so I knew they'd PROBABLY never seen anything quite like Creatures. At the end of one of my classes I told them I had a bit of a treat for them, set up screen-share and showed them Creatures 1 and it's collage-style background. I gotta' say it was a success! Lots of "oos" and "ahs" and "Oh that's so cute!" haha. Anyways, I didn't realize myself that Creatures had so much digital collage in it's backgrounds until I started teaching this class. The people who designed these backgrounds did an excellent job of creating a believable, bright and interesting little world in which to raise our strange friends!

Oh, that sounds really nice!

As for the background, I think Creatures 1 in particular actually uses digitized images of a real diorama for it's background. The original is even in a museum somewhere.

That does indeed sound really nice. And Papriko is right about the C1 background. Here's the Creatures Wiki page on the model, if you're interested in reading more about it.
