The Video Game Villains Art Challenge on Game-Art-HQ: Wizpig from Diddy Kong Racing!
The Wizpig is the main antagonist and a gigantic Alien Pig in Diddy Kong Racing on the Nintendo 64, this character was claimed by long-time Game-Art-HQ member and contributor BlazeTBW for the ~Villains Art Challenge Submission ~
“This guy used to scare me on the N64 when I was younger, but mostly from that head coming to life and having to fly into it. That and the music was boss. (My other favorite soundtrack from there is Dark Moon Caverns.)
I was gonna do some sort of alternate lighting with this guy, but I’m pretty happy with how this looks as is.”
As the organizer of the art challenges but also as a gamer since over 20 years it was pretty cool to see that so many artists liked the idea to draw a villain or boss character from a video game and chose one of the not so popular characters like the Wizpig in this case which only appeared in the original Diddy Kong Racing and Diddy Kong Racing DS later where the Wizpig can be unlocked as a playable character which is not a giant in comparison with the other racers anymore.
Art Challenge Mastered 10/10!
