When's My Turn? by TamarinFrog When's My Turn? by TamarinFrog
No lines? I wanted to try something new.

Ah, Diddy and Dixie... What can I say? I love monkeys. Especially Nintendo monkeys. Anyway, out of all Kongs these two are my favourites and Donkey Kong Country 2 was my favourite of all DK country games.

Heh, these two make such a cute couple. But... I never recall seeing them in any cute and/or romantic situations... I mean, sure in fan art but in any DK games. Actually, they seem to hate eachother. I mean, in DK country 1, if you switched between DK and Diddy, they were all like "yeah! you go buddy!". But in DK country 2, Dixie literally kicks Diddy out of her way and Diddy pulls Dixie's hair and throws her behind him... I guess they just like to show their affection by teasing eachother. How cute.
But seriously, unfortunately DK Countries are the only DK games I have played so I don't know what kind of relationship these two have in newer games so if someone knows, please tell me.

Anyway, about this picture... I was meant to do Diddy&Dixie picture a long time ago but I wasn't happy with the sketches until now. I wanted to make a picture inspired by how they treat eachother in DKC2. There's love but in a form of teasing.

Poor Diddy.

Somehow, I never thought that Diddy and Dixie had arguments like these despite their love relationship.  I guess it's just the way that younger kids are like.

Diddy looks pretty nice in this pic.

It's not unheard of for a boyfriend and girlfriend to kind of roughhouse like that with one another, they're just being playful, that doesn't mean they don't have feelings for each other.

In fact when My little sister first dated boyfriends (we're all close in age so she's not much younger I'm the oldest but don't act like it due to My ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, Mild form of Autism I'm not stupid it just makes things hard)
Well they're her ex-boyfriends now, but when she started dating they would roughhouse with each other, even to the point where they shook some of our condo.

So it isn't unheard of to have two people who have feelings for each other to act that way and be rough with one another it's just kind of their way of saying "I like you" to each other, though it eventually calmed down between My sister and her now ex-boyfriends. I mean like I said that kind of relationship between a boyfriend and girlfriend isn't totally unheard of in reality.

They look so cute :love:

I think it would be cool if they have a teasing relationship. It makes them more lovable :giggle:

nice job. I love diddy kong
metal-shadic Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
wait, relationship? there related! they fight in DK counrty 2 as a sibling rivalry!
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Nope, they are girlfriend and a boyfriend. Melee/brawl trophy states that and even Cranky Kong says something in game that tells us they are not related. Besides, Diddy is a monkey and Dixie is a chimp...
metal-shadic Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2011
oh...i got false info then, that was just something i heard on youtube so im sorry

Oh, this is so cute! I love the pins you added onto Dixie's hat!
Altermentality Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love their teasing relationship. Not all relationships have to be sappy and mushy! People in love can tease each other because they're comfortable with each other, and you did a great job of capturing that here, and in a really cool style to boot!

Mastergames22 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011
I believe that Dixie will make a return as the just came out with "Donkey Kong Country Returns" so most likely they will bring her out of the blue in the next one or 3 one its only a matter of time

Tantrix187 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2010
I read somewhere that Dixie was Didi's official girlfriend. In this game.
I guess the relationship went down under through the unnecessary sequel DKC 3.
Videogamer-Phil Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2010
Nice pic, and the DKC were really great games, I miss them (and my SNES) a lot sometimes.

Me too, even though she's no longer wearing the Rare pin, the Mr. Saturn pin looks nice on her hat.
WolfPackofahundred Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yesh it does.
Juunibi Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2009
Strange, I heard Dixie was Diddy's sister or cousin. Maybe I got mixed up with Tiny :D
LuisaRafidi Featured By Owner May 1, 2009
Looks great with no lines :) Dixie is my favorite Kong, DK Country 2 is my favorite of the series, too. I don't think Diddy and Dixie hate each other. I never thought that when they switched with each other. They even laugh, haha. Anyway, great job!
silentxshadow888 Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009
wow, banana hammock lmao
miwie Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
haha awesome! :D

They have a relationship cause if you go into Swankys place (in world 2 I think) you will get a question "what's the name of Diddys ponytailed girlfriend?"
but I have no idea how much love the relationship has :P
Hyliaman Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009
bwaahh? This is the coolest Diddy and Dixie pic I ever seen. I am loving the extra little details in the pic, especially the Mr. Saturn pin. God I want their belongings.

Silly Dixie. Don'tcha know a man's gotta play his video games? That's the dude's drive.

Really funny. I love the banana-coloured hammock. And the triforce mat!
Kanashimi-chan Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2008  Student
That sums up their relationship pretty well. =D

Beautifully drawn as well as cut! I love the little details like the pins on Dixie's hat.
