Ambient Depths by Noodlerelleh Ambient Depths by Noodlerelleh
My entry to SupaNova's art competition. Not my original picture but I wanted to do something more vivid and colourful so I chose another Donkey Kong piece. I started out hating this picture with passion, but I now love it to bits. I'm not expecting to win anything but I've given it my best I think.

Exemplary work. I envy your skill with traditional media. What did you use anyway, Acrylics?

It's great. You do a great job. And Diddy is my favorite character. Look out behind you Kongs! It Chomps.

you`re welcome and your DKC works are really beautiful, somehow you mastered it to catch the feel of them while you use traditional tools. That is even more exciting since the game was pre-rendered and looked halfway 3d due to the graphic style. I am not a big Nintendo fan, but back in the nineties i played the hell out of DKC and still play them from time to time even now via emulator. To see beautiful art of the classics submitted to my group here made me happy and i look forward to your future works

Btw, do you like the Legend of Zelda?

Wow, thankyou so much, I just draw donkey kong because I love the game, I guarantee there will be more donkey kong art in the future I haven't finished with these little guys yet. Yes I do like the legend of Zelda, not as much as my best friend but I love it nonetheless.

I asked because i just started the 2nd round of the big Link`s Blacklist art project, if you read the blogs of Game Art HQ you heard about it already, if not take a look at [link]

After your DKC works i just wanted to invite you to this project since i thought you might like it and your style would be a great addition to the already friggin awesome team of artists working on it
