In today's tutorial I am going to be showing you how to draw America's favorite ape. Today you will learn "how to draw Donkey Kong". Donkey Kong has been a video game character for nearly 30 years. The first game ever that debuted the big monkey was a self titled arcade game released in 1981. I probably didn't start playing the game until it was released on the Nintendo video game console. It's funny how things work out because in his first game he was the one that kidnapped a female who looked like Princess Toadstool her name in the game was Pauline, and Mario then called Jumpman, had to climb ladder after ladder dodging wooden barrels and other obstacles that were thrown from Donkey Kong as he sat at the top of steel framed platform. As you know this game became a big hit for Nintendo and later the two characters that balled each other went on to become two of Nintendo's most popular video game icons. Jumpman became the plumber Mario who looks sort of the same but just less color. Donkey Kong then looked more like an ape, and what I mean by that is, he looks more like a wild animal that had modernization. Now this big furry animal has a lot of style and pizazz. Not only is he more attractive to look at, but he also wears a tie with his initials written right on the bottom. After he earned his success, his son Donkey Kong Jr. is the one that goes on a mission to save his papa from the clutches of Mario. That is right, after Mario finally captures Donkey Kong, his son sets off on a vine swinging adventure to release his father from the steel bared cage that he sits in. That was a fun version of the game series. As I got older I moved on to bigger and brighter video games as the systems got more advanced. Now a days Donkey Kong is featured in a variety games where he is helping other game characters battle or racing them on the track. I will always remember my game playing days when I use to struggle to get to the top to rescue both beauty and beast. In this tutorial you will learn "how to draw Donkey Kong", step by step. The instructions will make it that much easier to help guide you threw this fun colorful tutorial. Have fun y'all.
