You're only reading this because you're bored!

They can't keep this level of graphics up for much longer! We used to be lucky if we only got three shades of grey, let alone any real colors!

Does anyone ever actually use these memo pages? Waste of paper if you ask me!

Look at the fancy box. Look at the size of this instruction manual. You don't think they would have gone to all this trouble if the game was any good, do you?!

I can't believe you're still reading this! What you need is a good trashing!

awww the kongs are a happy family. the kremlings are a badass family. -_-
Austria-Man Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2011
The Kongs are very good. Donkey and Diddy are my favourite playable Kongs and Funky is one of the coolest characters in my opinion. But why is Tiny now bigger than Dixie? I mean, she's younger, but Dixie don't looks older.
Artich0ker Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
tiny is younger than her sister dixie, and she is hotter taller ;D

good work ;D

I wanted to see these characters in Donkey Kong Country Returns! only 3 returned!!!!
Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011
I love it :love:

Who is the kid sitting on Chunky’s shoulder and what’s the name of the Kong with the cane and yellow sweater?

I’ve only managed to play 4 DK games in my life so I don’t know much about them.
ChetRippo Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
Kiddy Kong and Swanky Kong.
Kiddy originates from Donkey Kong Country 3, and Swanky was originally from Donkey Kong Country 2 (but the look I gave him in this picture is from his appearance in DKC3)
Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
Thank you.

I also remembered seeing a Kong with an afro. What was his name?
ChetRippo Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
That's also Swanky Kong; as he appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2.
Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
Thanks a lot ^__^
I was a bit confused since I did managed to see him when I played the DKC 2 remake and I was like “Wasn’t Swanky a Kong with an afro?” and the fact that Chunky was seen dressed like him during the first few seconds of the DK rap didn’t help XD

A great pic! But I thought, Dixie is older than Tiny...

Awesome Funky Kong!
shadamyandtf2fan Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009

kaollla93 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

ZeoLightning Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i do not need a thrashing, i like to hear what an artist has to say about there drawings,i digress this look's amazing CUDOS 10/10
BrotherlyFluff Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009
Wow, that’s awesome!! :) :D I love the Kongs. The only problem I see is that Tiny is Dixie’s younger sister, but since you drew Tiny in her latest form, she looks older than Dixie in your picture. However, it’s still a great picture. :)
nintyalex Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2008
Yeah!!! The Kong family looks awesome! :D
Spongeygirl14 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2008
Yay! All the kongs from the DK series! They even have their updated looks! My favorites are Chunky, Tiny, Dixie, and Donkey! Great job, sweetie!

I love 4 wat u did 2 Candy
SeriousCacodemon Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2007
My favorite Cranky line in all of the Donkey Kong Country instruction manuals is the one where he says "Copy? Who would want to copy this game?"
goombuster Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2007
gotta love lanky eh?
KadytheRedPanda Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2007
Awesome job with both the pic and the Cranky impersonation. (throws toast) I also liked the part in the pic where Kiddy is reaching for a banana bird too; it's just adorable. ^^

Y'know, what always confused me is that Lanky is a orangutan and the Manky Kongs were bad guy orangutans in DKC... Is Lanky a... Nevermind @_@
tnyshawk Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2007
aaaah the DK crew
ShotKing Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2007
Man thats almost every kong I know although theres a few I dont seem regonize out of those.
popplenator Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
wow,this is quiet interesting,u have all the kongs i think.lanky,funky and candy kong look the best i think,the coloring is also very good,with all the light shading,overall welldone
Ultim87 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Cranky is amazing. If I wasn't a bigger Animal Crossing fan, I'd rather have Cranky be the ranting AT in Brawl.
Kanashimi-chan Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007  Student
Cranky quotes! That makes this even more awesome! There should really be more DK art out there.
TakeWalker Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Wait, there are Kongs I do not know. D: Who is who?
ChetRippo Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Okay, from right to left are:
Tiny, Chunky, Kiddy, Diddy, Donkey, Funky, Dixie, Lanky, Swanky, Cranky, Wrinkly, Candy.
TakeWalker Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2007
Wrinkly is dead? D: Also, I guess the other weirdos are from DK64 or something. I never played that one.
ChetRippo Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
They "killed" her off in DK64. Though they still use her. It's creepy....
SeriousCacodemon Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2007
Wrinkly could have possibly died of old age for some reason.
Kitten-Kitty Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Ha Ha. Candy looks like a... wait.
I love Swanky Kong so much. D:

Also: the "You're only reading this cause you're bored!" thing is totally true. That's the only reason me and :iconkosmoe: read them. D:
Dracomonstar Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Cool! I just think"Oh Banana!* by seeing all the Kongs! The colors and the style are very cool!
The Donkey Kong series are just cult!:)
Thank you for the new pic! I love these Nintendo arts from you=D
Cammiluna Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
Dixie will nevar grow up D:

Sweet Portrait (and cranky impersonations! LMAO!)!
BoomerBOmb Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
Each kong in their latest form I see. Man, what happened to Tiny, shes not Tiny! Didn't it say that she was Dixies younger sister? And wouldn't Swanky and Lanky make an awesome team. They could make like their own circus or something.
hopT Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007
What a great family photo! :D

And having Cranky Kong to type in your Artist's Comments was just brilliant! XD
NO-Body-The-Dragon Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
sweet group picture of all the Kongs ^^
