The penultimate character(ninth) in the Road To 2020: HNV lineup is King K Rool from the Donkey Kong franchise! The cunning crocodile debuted with his Kremling crew in 1994, where he stole Donkey Kong's bananas. Ignored for a while, he has made a comeback with his introduction as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
For the design, I was aiming to recreate one-for-one the concept art of the first game. The scaliness was difficult to emulate, and the cape is a bit thick, but it's all for better printability. Have fun with this one. :D
