Dixie Kong Smashified by Sean-the-Artist Dixie Kong Smashified by Sean-the-Artist
Dixie Kong was created as the eleventh installment of the #Smashified series. You can watch the time lapse video here:

This was my first entry to the series where I took the lead for the painting process! Final touch ups are done by hextupleyoodot and Zesiul; the fabulous hair was painted by Chris! I was introduced to Smashified through the triad collab of the Smashified Inklings where Chris, Omni, and I all tackled those two together. 
As a long time fan of the Donkey Kong Country series, I was more than happy when I found out I would be working on Dixie. With Rare celebrating their anniversary in gaming, the timing was just right! This one actually ended taking some time as far as the process goes. As you can see, fur takes up most of Dixie Kong's character, so I tried to match the fur of Smash's aesthetics as close as I could! There's something relaxing about painting fur/hair. I hope you all enjoy the final result!

I'm pretty annoyed that she didn't get in, and yet we have Bayonetta. Because she's so nintendo.

Also , Nice work

I'd love to see Dixie in a Smash game - even if Tiny is my favorite Kong of all ^^;

Agreed about the clone nonsense - if they could include multiple versions of Mario, Link, Zelda and Samus and make 'em all work, they could easily make Dixie work. : pif :

one flaw in that. Dixie doesn't nessecarely whip her hair like Shantae wold.

I'm looking at the timelapse, and I don't know if it's youtube doing some colour changes. But why did you end up making the knot have the darkest colour so dark? it kind of looks like an outline as a result, either way it still looks great :)
