No Country For Old Kongs by mattmcmanis No Country For Old Kongs by mattmcmanis
This was an assignment for my Adobe Illustrator class.

We were given a list of subjects to choose from and asked to create it using the techniques we had learned.

I saw "Monkey Madness" on the list. So I had to do a Donkey Kong tribute.

I scanned a concept sketch I did in pencil and used it as reference. I also studied many pictures of apes to create the characters.

They look much more realistic in this style and that's nice ! Since you captured them well and they're recognizable. Good job!

Wowww... I love those two so much and you made them look twice as epic than they ususally do! The shaggy hair that apes have is very well done here. Diddy looks ready to use those 'nanas!
