Behind the scenes of Skullduggery Island: The Phoenix Warbird, part 2

On Skullduggery Island, players start with a junky old sloop, and earn doubloons to buy bigger and better boats. Early on, the Poptropica creators knew they wanted the most powerful ship to have an animal theme.

Even so, there were still dozens and dozens of smaller decisions to make. Should the boat look realistic or fantastical? How big should it be? Should it be scary?

To explore the possibilities, the designers made a few more sketches.
After another round of discussion (okay, arguments), the creators settled on a direction and set to work on the final version.
