Donkey Kong Stage


This commission is for the same campaign as my Mario Stage painting.

I loved the music and overall stage when I was a kid so I thought I would make a composition based on it, Bramble Blast I mean.

This took about 6 hours and I loved painting it :)

Hope you guys like it :)

Oh dear lord i spent so many lives on stupid levels! *cries softly to self* This painting is beautiful. I love it.

pиcyнaк very good

I hate to brag but...

I've always been a master at the DKC series for SNES. I rock that game like no one's business.

Bramble Blast was always one of my favorite levels. The levels themed like that were always fun as well. I was browsing your art and when I saw the bee I knew what I was looking at.

Thank you for giving me a nostalgic feeling I've only been able to get from the SNES thus far. It's the same feeling I had when I played this level the first time.


Best piece I've seen thus far today.

I would've been a huge DK fan if I had a console to play it on back in the day, but I could only ever play it at friends' place. ANd I loved. I really remember stages that looked like this.

You did amazing on this. The attention to detail, the textures on the surfaces, and the shading, wow, I'm amazed at how well you did the shading and lighting effects. THe colors are so good, real true to the original. Love it.
