Re: Donkey Kong Country 4: The Kongs Return

I messed with the yellow a little bit today, but decided to stick with the yellow I have now, because the beige realistic cheetah color was kinda... Ugly. I might change the colors of the socks and eyelids to a greenish blue to contrast while at the same time being less saturated.

It depends, of course, if it has been considered by the team whether they want him in there or not. If he is wanted, then I'l...
