Yeah, haven't even ATTEMPTED to draw in awhile. Got a new computer, can't quite tell if the mouse is fully working or not (seems BETTER but not sure if it's truly fixes).
But regardless I busted it out to take a shot at a Tiny Kong fanart...again...
I swear I'll get back to transformation art one day! XD
Although speaking of which I do have some transformation writings in progress.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THAT! TINY!
Seems her new design is gaining more acceptance and non-expansion based fanart is starting to pop up! YAY!
You know, if *I* were making a DK game, you know what I'd do? First of all I'd make it a side scroller. We have the technology now to do something that looks identical to Donkey Kong Country in real time now, why not do it? Then I'd have selectable characters which would include Donkey Kong, Diddy, Dixie, and Tiny (OBVIOUSLY) (also possibly more characters) and give each their own unique skills. It would probably be on Wii so let's imagine a sidewats Wiimote. 2 is jump, 1 is a special skill (usually an attack), and A would be a much less commonly used special skill.
DK - 1) Barrel Grab/Throw (able to roll any barrel and use it as a weapon. Game would have more barrels than normal) A) Shockwave Clap (from Jungle Beat) (Alternately either could be replaced with a super strong punch that knocks enemies into other enemies)
Diddy - 1) Tail Grab (able to use tail to grab vines and ledges out of reach as well as grab onto an enemy and kick them in the face) A) Rocket Pack (charges up for a moment giving your thumb a chance to return to the D-Pad and pick a direction)
Dixie - 1) Hair Whip (can glide) A) Hair Cyclone (pushes enemies away)
Tiny - 1) Hair Spin (allows her to hover when jumping and double jump from the hover) A) Size/Age Change (SEE WHAT I DID THERE
Teen Tiny - 1) Kong-Fu (loses the ability to hover in mid-air but can now wall jump)
That would be pretty awesome to include both teen and kid forms. Explanation? Tiny IS younger than Dixie but happens to be taller, was shrunk for all of DK64. Okay there's some plot holes in that still (didn't she need a potion to shrink? Drat!) but it ALMOST works!
Still I think that would be able to please everyone...especially since we haven't had a new DK platformer in ages
XD Sorry, it's just not right posting an image without one of my pantented endless brainfart comments sections. In the off chance that someone from Paon or Nintendo is reading this (HA!), I surrender all rights to the idea to you guys. Just make the damn game, dammit! >
Oh and yeah, tried my hand again at dodge and burn shading.
