Path of Development: Upchuck by tnperkins Path of Development: Upchuck by tnperkins
Here is some of the work that I did while developing the character Upchuck for the Cartoon Network Studios program Ben 10, the episode The Visitor. Many possiblities were generated for the idea of Upchuck. Some in fact were later to appear in the episodes Ben 10,000 and Ken 10 as both other heroes and villains.

You can always do what fan art you wish. All I mean is that though I designed these characters, I do not own them. They are properties of Cartoon Network, so I have no power to give anyone the permission to do anything with them. I say you should draw what ever you like.

Thanks. Yeah, the development of Upchuck predates those other two characters, but I can't say if this had any influence on them. And if you mean "Gluto" from "Secret of the Omnitrix"...then the coincidence is less, because I designed him too. :) Thank you for checking out my work. I am glad you are enjoying it.

Did they all have the same power of eating things and then puking up explosive attacks? Because number 8 looks more like a vacuum.

Ben Wolf, Ben Mummy, Ben Vicktor, Waybig, Eyeguy, Ditto, Spitter, Arctiguana, Charmcaster, Ben 10k, Kevin 11k, Future Gwen...All sorts of stuffs. I was on the show from the beginning of Season 2 to the end of Season 4 and the Secret of the Omnitrix DVD. I have also done a little freelance work on the Later iterations of the show, but not too much.

These are intense! How do you come up with all these designs? I'm in the process of creating monsters for my comic strip, and often get stuck with ideas.

Is it just me, but does desiggn 9 look like a green Arcticguana?
Reply
:icontnperkins:
tnperkins Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010  Professional Filmographer
It does look that way, because when it got passed over for Upchuck, we later recycled him as Arctiquana, just as Spitter, Sploot and Gullet where also other unused upchuck prototypes. Good call.

the way I see it, if it doesn't get picked, it still has a chance for some other role later if it fits the needs of the part in the show. On a busy production, it can save you a lot of time.
