The first Disney Infinity character I helped design was Baloo from The Jungle Book. Baloo uses a wide variety of moves in combat including butt-slamming, fruit-throwing, club-swinging, and even dancing.
I started working on Baloo with little more than first-pass combat animations and basic documentation on his moveset. Over the course of designing him, my intention was to evoke his laid-back, friendly nature through his playstyle. Though he is a bear, he is not ferocious. Thus, I designed him to feel strong but playful and carefree.
