With Junction Point Studios' Epic Mickey for Wii now out in stores, those who worked on the game can now come out and share some of their contributions, like this great character art for a Pete design that didn't make it in the final release.

Sam Nielsen of Avalanche Software/Disney Interactive Studios painted this piece with Jon Diesta, who worked on the line art and character design. I love that even in this advanced robotic form, Pete still has his peg-leg!

"Sadly, they went a different direction on that character in the final game," explains Nielsen. You can see another impressive piece he worked on for the 3D platformer at his personal blog.
