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 byhextupleyoodot 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! 

Be sure to give credit where credit is due if you plan to use the transparent version for anything!

can you tell me what is the resolution you use when you're making a smashified character?

Any plans on a Cranky Kong? I drew up a moveset for him the other day and was wondering if he could ever get Smashified (This Dixie is incredible by the way)!

I love the fur and the texture work!
The eyes look a bit wide but apart from that it's amazing!

There is definitely something bothering me about the eyes, but otherwise everything else looks fine. :)

Been getting alot of comments about the eyes; I'm not sure what the issue would be unless someone were to draw it out. Thank you for your feedback and comment!

Initially I thought it was jarring since Diddy's irises were a lot smaller in comparison, but after looking at more images of her, Dixie apparently just has naturally larger irises than Diddy. Now that I see it that way, she looks fine actually. No problems whatsoever with her rendition. :)

Looks awesome! I'm not really sure how eyes are in smash, but some thing about seems just a little weird to me but it's still incredible!

"Already has a rep in Smashified" - King K. Rool.

"Female" - At least, I'm pretty sure.

"Hair" - Could be the ponytail, could also re-fur to the... well, the terrible pun should give it away.

"Not the lead protagonist" - Unless you count Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, which was one game, she's always been a partner.

The only one that doesn't make much sense was the blue hint, which they supposedly covered in the commentary (I haven't watched it, nor do I plan to). But still, I'd say it matches pretty well.
