Donkey Kong Family by Photia Donkey Kong Family by Photia
The N64 turned 20 on Thursday! As part of the Game Art HQ’s 20th anniversary tribute, I painted the playable characters of Donkey Kong 64. I was surprised to find out lots of people don’t like this game! I have a ton of nostalgia for it.

I enjoyed the challenge of painting multiple figures interacting. I don't do that very often! I also posted a progress gif of this on my Tumblr.

This is amazing! And I agree with you, I love this game and have lots of nostalgia for it! I wonder why others hate this game? Is it all of the collectibles? Other than that, great picture! :D

i loved this game too! Lanky was my fave. I think half of it were the sounds he made, and the other half was everything you could do with his arms. I wasn't aware a lot of people hated this game. if i had a tv i could actually sit down and play the original. still have the old n64. i also liked that it had a pvp mode, though i didn't have much opportunity to play it much.

the only thing i hated was annoyingly difficult mini-games like tiny's slide race. I don't think I ever actually beat it. and my brother who was a whiz at video games, playing 10x more than i ever did, had to redo it for DAYS on end before finally finishing the race. there were prob other mini-games like that but that's the one that sticks out the most.

I liked Lanky because of his sound bites too!

I just got DK64 on the Wii U Virtual Console and it's still as fun as when I was a kid. And this is a cute piece, I like the interactions. :thumbsup:

I absolutely loved this game as a kid! I recently began playing it again on an emulator since I don't have a N64, but I'm definitely reliving the nostalgia. Tiny was always my favorite Kong ^^
