Kong by GnooroopoftheGerudo Kong by GnooroopoftheGerudo
And here it (they) is (are). As odd as it may seem to call the work "Kong", it actually does fit with the rest of my titles...no article, just the name of the species, singular...so don't read too far into that.

In any case, I'm actually pretty happy with the way this one came out. I think I achieved a pretty realistic effect without having to compromise the flavor of the Kongs (though characters like Diddy and Dixie were a little harder because of their massive eyes...oh well). I think my favorite part is the rip-pissed Cranky at the bottom...but yeah...leave your thoughts folks.

And by the way, I should have been doing this since I started these things, but my buddy :iconbunyipflip: provides me with a lot of suggestion and inspiration when I'm working on these, and for that, he deserves some credit (I never would have thought of the jungle tech at the top if it weren't for his suggestion). Also, those of you who haven't checked out his gallery, you totally should, because he's pretty good at the fakemon thing (and who knows...if more people start praising him, maybe he'll update more frequently ;-))

Donkey Kong, and all related characters and whatnot belong to Nintendo. Not Rareware. Don't get the wrong idea.

Such awesome detailing. I like the little descriptions, it makes it feel like truly informative observations of their culture. :) Haha

Nobody specific...just a made-up Kong of the smaller monkey persuasion.

Heh...yeah, I wanted to have a nice mix in there so I did three "established" kongs, and made up a couple. The little one can be...Beanie Kong (because he wears a beanie) and the she-orangutan can be...

Uh...

Wow, that came out great. I must say, your attention to detail (like the wood in the barrel cannon) is phenomenal.

And as you pointed out, you did a great job of making them look more realistic while still making the characters recognizable and keeping with the style.

Great work, man. :D

That was just plain awesome. I really like how you managed to fit most (If not all) of the Kongs in it.

Nice to see a nod my way ;)

Another one that turned out great. Too bad there's such a massive wealth of stuff that you'll never get to work on it all, y'know? I wonder what your next non-Pokemon project will be... I have a few ideas, so if you're desperate for some keep in touch.

Well, I figured it was about time you got your due, eh?

What do you mean? I'm only twenty-one. I've got plenty of time to do these...and I plan to work on them for many years...so who knows what I'll end up doing.

I'm definitely looking for suggestion. Check the journal bitch. ;-)

I love how you've made them all similar but managed to keep them all individual... if you catch my drift. I also like the inclusion of the technology, that was unexpected but a cool feature.

Oh man... this is quite the work. Genius. XD (lol, banana phone)

Also, is it just me, or did you happen to make up two Kongs on the spot? Definately love the Cranky head. Oh, and Diddy, of course. :D

I did...the little "Monkey" Kong on DK's shoulder, and the female "orangutan" kong to his right are both characters I included to demonstrate the diversity of Kongs. They are not anyspecific characters.

In any case, I'm glad you like it! :-)
