Shin Donkey Tensei
i love the first boss theme of donkey kong country tropical freeze partly because it absolutely does not fit anything that's going on

i Love it
Diddy: Donkey.. I loved you... please, dont deny the will of God
Dixie: How can you just sacrifice your freedom like that??
So after discovering this ridiculously Atlus-like boss theme, I ended up spriting Pompy the Presumptuous like the early Megaten games and sticking them in a screen as such. The sprite is completely from scratch and took several hours of work, and by that point I forgot I needed to do a background... and didn't want to... so I just recoloured one. I'm sorry.
I started off drawing up the sprite at a larger size, here it is too for those interested:
I'm sorry for the watermarks, but you should all know how the internet treats pixelart.
