Re: Favorite Animal?

Recently I've found myself fascinated by naked mole rats. Sure, they're ugly, but if you take the time to observe them more closely you'll find that they're really unique little critters.

Thanks, guys! I'm not sure if I'll tweet it to Rare, though, I'd rather wait til I draw a better picture.

Re: This is a thing that happened

I was really annoyed that Mario, Bowser, and nearly everyone else got really cute costumes and DK just got a silly Sulley-lookalike pattern on his fur. Diddy too, I'm sure. Dude! Why doesn't DK get a cool new suit?
