Two Worlds by Ribbedebie Two Worlds by Ribbedebie
Laat je leiden door je goed vertrouwen
Één ziel, twee werelden
Volg je hart, het lot bepaalt
De levens die we zien

-- Disney's Tarzan, Two Worlds (Dutch)

I drew this in between commissions and I'm rather happy with how it came out. Used a few new techniques, most notably on Diddy Kong's fur and clothes, and the leaves he's perching on.

Basically, I drew this wondering how Diddy or any other Kong for that matter must've felt seeing Crocodile Island for the first time. Such an ominous lump of darkness on the horizon would enthrall any monkey! It is in my opinion definitely one of the most accurate yet literal instances of 'two worlds' - the Kongs and the Kremlings, seperated by only a sea. Such a shame they're not on good terms with one another.

I like drawing these digitally painted things as some sort of tribute to my favourite game franchise of all time.

"I can feel it coming in the end of night"

Sorry, I just have to point out the coincidental connection between the soundtrack you referenced to the soundtrack of the video game you referenced.

Two islands of opposition, set apart by the blue waves. A tailed chimp looks from the palm-tree's branches at the mesmerizing spectacle of a looming keep, perched over a haunting landscape teeming with critters of unsavory character. Little does he know, the reptile lord seeks their nourishment for his own, and his plundering henchmen are more than willing to turn their homeland upside down for their prize...

...Did I just wrote this odd ditty based off this awesome drawing? :o

Don't leave Phil Collins out of the picture. See my comment for the two links to two very musically similar songs! One by Phil Collins and the other for Donkey Kong Country 2.

Funny, because likewise, do you know what other Disney movie has an awesome soundtrack? Tron Legacy!

And you know what else? I listen to it with the Perfect Dark OST because they are of a similar genre.

I really enjoy the beautiful early-morning colors, and the eerie, mysterious isle in the distance. AND the fact that adventurous little Diddy is looking out at it from atop a scraggly patch of trees instead of the ground. Your art just perfectly sets the mood for adventure. ;)

And to just think that, at the same time, maybe there's a young kremling out there on Crocodile Island, standing atop a weathered old pirate-ship mast and peering towards DK Isle with adventure on his mind, too. :XD:

Hehe, thanks! I did try to capture a feeling of adventure in this piece. Glad I succeeded!~

That wouldn't be entirely unlikely. Who knows, maybe that is the case indeed! I should try drawing that as well, heh.

Love this one! Managed to capture the feeling and atmosphere perfectly.
Crocodile island is where I would prefer to live at, violence, horror, rollercoasters, pirate ships, cool kremlings to hang out with :XD: Prefer that easily.
