Donkey Kong

Finishing first place again is DK.  The Secret? The banana peel.  It always screws you over right before the finishing line.  This was a fun one.  I'm finally starting to get the hang of corel painter.

Here's my process:

I started off with a drawing, after thumbnails and comps this is what I came up with.  I thought it was great, but once I got some sleep I realized that it was anything but.  I was going for a big head little body effect at first, but instead took a different route.  

you can see how i cut him apart and put him back together.  i decided to increase his mass and decrease the kart.

still increasing mass i also increased limb size, and put in general shadow shapes and colors.  i started focusing on the face to give him an expression rather then a blank stare.

more underlay colors
increased general mass, he was still looking too small

ta da!
