NOTE: I WOULD LIKE THIS TO BE STRICTLY DKC FOR NOW. If it goes well, we can do another collab for Banjo or Conker or what have you, but for now, keep it to Donkey Kong please smile.gif

Hello DK Viners! I want to try a collaborative project, I don't know how much interest it will garner up but a certain EarthBound fansite I frequent does these art collabs, and they're a lot of fun! This is for people of all art skill levels, so don't be intimidated by other people's skill/talent. It's really cool to see everyone's different styles and skill levels; even if people aren't great artists, I see it as "that is a fan who cared enough about Donkey Kong to draw something even though they aren't confident in it".

What I want to do is have people make 200x200 pixel squares, and in the end, I'll put them all into one big "DK quilt". Then we can send it off to Retro or Rare or Playtonic, PAON, whoever. For example, here is the one I drew:

IPB Image

This isn't just to look pretty, but to show appreciation to these companies who made a series that means a lot to every member of the forum here. But, it's also an image that could show to Retro what we want out of the next DKC game, and also what they did that was amazing in Tropical Freeze.

I like Diddy Kong. I think he's cute, so I drew him being cute. If you like Swanky Kong, draw a Swanky Kong. Draw Swanky giving a quiz show, have a funny question with goofy answers, show WHY you like Swanky. If you like the bramble levels, why not draw some brambles? Don't overthink it, just do your best.

If we don't get a lot of people participating, I'll let people do more, but for now I think these should be the rules:
- 200 pixels wide, 200 pixels tall (this is so they can be put together in the larger image)
- Two per person unless otherwise stated
- Put effort in it! Even if you are not a talented artist, it shows when you are trying and when you just made it in two minutes to say you submitted something.
- Keep it clean. If we decide to show this to the companies that made the game, we wouldn't want none of those nasty potty words, would we?
- Post your completed image in this thread.

If you want, draw it on paper and scan it or take a picture, just as long as you can get it to that nice, even square. (Size it down in an image program if need-be or send it to me and I'll do it.) You can even pixel-art it if you want. Any type of image, as long as it fits this theme and fits in the box, is fine. You could even make something with clay and take a photo or something; be creative!

Most importantly, make it fun!

Somehow I totally missed this thread but this sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately, I'm really not much of an artist -

Oh, well okay fine if you say so. tongue.gif I can't commit to anything, which is pretty lame but that's just where I'm at with life and all that. But I would love to contribute! I also think this forum is full of people who could contribute so hopefully this bump will get some more people. But I will really try to make a square for this because this is an awesome project.
So I put to you

As long as there's effort in it, it shows no matter how much talent you have. Every time I've done a collaborative project like this there are so many different skill levels and different art styles, it really shows when people care about what they're making even if it's not exactly what an art professor would consider a masterpiece. smile.gif

Definitely count me in. Once I draw mine should I send it to you in a PM so when you put them all together you can reveal them all as a surprise or should I just post it in this thread?

Hmm, I hadn't considered that. Having a big reveal might be pretty cool, but seeing other people's squares might help drum up excitement and get more participation. I say post them in the thread; simpler that way.

Sounds great! I should clarify I'm not really even considering a strict deadline or anything yet so take all the time you guys need, definitely don't stress; I think once interest/submissions start dying down I'll give a couple week's notice or up the square count if too few people are doing it; that way we can end up with a nice, big square by the end. More than anything I'm happy to see people participating; depending on how many people that do this little project and how many people are interested in the idea of these collaborative art things, I might even consider doing more community stuff like this in the future.

I know this flopped so far but I'd definitely be willing to try it again. I tried this same collab on an EarthBound fansite and got a ton of participation. Here's what this can look like; it can get pretty insane! So after I finished that one I was really hoping to keep that excitement going just because the final product on the EarthBound one was so cool.

(also wow the example square I drew for this one is super rough now, what the hey? If I do try this again I definitely gotta draw a new one, gross)

I didn't spot this thread when you first posted it (first week in January, man! Everyone's way too depressed to pay attention to anything, let alone draw stuff) but I'm gonna count myself in if you're giving it another crack!

I'll try not to make it too pornographic.

I converted one of my pixel arts down to 200x200. Don't zoom in on it, it looks terrible.
