I'm proud to present my contribution to Harmony of Heroes! What is that, you may ask?
Well, is a fan-arrangement album celebrating the music and franchises from Super Smash Bros coming Fall 2014!
Me and a group of very talented visual artists were given the chance to depict the characters present in Super Smash Bros. roster from the very first one on N64 to Brawl on Wii, in order to compliment the amazing music on the album.
For more artworks, trailers and general information  on this project please check the site at:

That crazy ape just couldn't let go that Banana, instead he's putting his and poor Diddy lives in danger. The usual adventures on the Lost Mines but they don't seem to notice that big portal behind them, ripping their dimension in order to lead those loonies to an alternate dimension or should I say... the Super Smash Bros. Universe!

Donkey Kong is definitely one of my favourite characters of all time so I'm really happy to be able to work on him for the very first time. At the time I was playing the fantastic Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze on Wii U and I just felt that this was it! Everything seemed aligned in order to make my contribution to the vast fanart lineage of the furry ape!
So please take some time to look at the rendition and hopefully you'll end up enjoying it as much as I had fun doing it! :)



Donkey Kong and all it's characters are a (C) and TM from Nintendo.

I actually liked the vikings from Tropical Freeze a lot, but still 
miss King K.Rool and his gang of baddies.
