Baker was created, modeled and animated in early 2011 by David Ward with the goal to create a character representative of the CG Cookie logo. Initially, Baker was going to be used for a video series on animation in Blender, but he has become much more than just a prop. David did an astounding job creating a fun, awkward character that we fell in love with and Baker has been with us ever since.
The CG Cookie team embraced Baker as one of our own and he has been featured in several tutorials.
In 2013, Baker got an upgrade. Kent Trammel updated the style and models to freshen up Baker's visual appeal while staying true to the essence of the character.
But not everybody shares our love for Baker. In fact, his blue doppelganger, Evil Baker, has been known for his violent outbursts against Baker, presumably jealous of his popularity.
