Prompt : animal friends (sorry for posting it so late, i was busy)
Ok, since I was bored and I was seeing some Kirb Gijinkas in DA, I decided to redesign some old gijinkas that I made some years ago. I also made a normal Kirby gijinka, but I'll wait the best moment to submit it.
Okay, let me show them
First, is our beloved (or hated) Cosmic Jester: Marx! I wanted him to look both jester and typicall funny kid, since I see Marx as a 11-12 years old kid. I also wanted him to look like a "Vampire" with his fangs and pale skin (altough I'm not sure if he also has pointy ears).
Second and third are the most wholesome goos you'll see: Gooey and Blob! Imnotracistpleasedonthatemeformakinghimblackskinned-ehem ... Okay, when I was making Gooey, I wanted him to look somewhat like my Kirby gijinka (you know: little chubby 5-6 years old cute kid) but having his own touch, I also gave him a cape to look like his tongue ... But I remembered that he already has his large tongue ... Still, looks nice.
Blob's supposed to be a character that only appears in the international version of KDL2, so she's not canon. But altough that, I headcanon her as Gooey's twin sister (and with no powers ...). I din't have any idea to do for her, I just wanted her to have a "Black-Pastel pink" look to her to represent her Dark Matter origins ...
Fourth is our cutie semi-yandere Octopus: Chuchu! I wanted her to look like a little primary school student. For some reason she ended looking like Ribbon, and yes, her hair it's actually Octopus tentacles
Fifth one is the Star-Stacking joyful-tomboy-ish witch: Gryll! I wanted her to look like a Witch in training for some reason ... I'm not too sure if her pants looks fine ...
Sixth is something that NOBODY asked or thinked: The Heroic Heart and a Mini Kirby both from Kirby Mass Attack! You know that in that game, Kirby's heart had emotions or something? Well, I decided to make his (probably his only) first Gijinka, for some reason he ended looking like a Jirachi. I also did one of the mini Kirbys (they all look the same, but with their own personality), I just can't resist how chibi they look!
Seven one is nothing more than Kirby's prototype design/name: Popopo (XD)! I don't know how he and Kirb would coexist, but I have the same headcanon of R1nrina/KatiaHina that Popopo's the leader of the Batamons, just that I like to think he lives in a secret place of the Popopo Islands. For some reason, he gives me a Astroboy/Harry Potter vibe ...
Eight and final one .... Yep ... Kine's a Merman, I know it's weird but it's because I like to make fish-like characters as mercreatures when I "humanize" them. I wanted him to look like a "wimp but actually smart and friendly" (also, idk why making his lips he ended looking weird ... I'm just a newbie with my black-skinned style, ok?)
I hope you like it and share your opinion.
I think Kirby and the Forgotten Land will be the perfect game to reintroduce Rick, Kine, and Coo as gimmicks. They haven't fulfilled their use as ways to traverse platform challenges since Kirby's Dreamland 3. It would be cool to see how they would play in a 3D environment and I think they would work well into the whole nature and animal motifs. Here is how I envisioned them as playable:
Rick-I think Rick would be used extensively in more open areas where combat is emphasized. He would work well as a buddy that excels in clearing combat challenges. I also think his rock copy ability would work well with slopes in platforming.
Kine-Definitely would be used in water levels. He could be used to swim through water much quicker on the surface or underwater. Assuming this new Kirby game reuses the elemental mechanics in Star Allies (I hope it does) I envisioned Kine's electric light bulb attack to cause electricity on the surface of the water to clear enemies.
Coo-I initially thought the new game was open world, instead it seems to play like SM3DW. I thought Coo would be a cool way to traverse the open world, but that idea fell through. It also wouldn't work on individual levels because there is a height limit. So instead, I think levels that can only be completed with Coo would be best, (i.e. where there is no solid ground to stand on). I imagine these Coo-centric levels would play like the Robobot Jet sections in KPR, but with a z-axis.
Don't worry HAL, these ideas are free. But seriously, I really want these 3 to appear in the game, almost as much as I want DDD, MK, and Bandana Waddle Dee to appear. Idk how Pitch, Nago, or ChuChu would work because they are all kind of reskins of the other 3 animal buddies.
Ok so this was drawn on ms paint aka it is my fanart
He would be sitting on top of kirby and the ability he gives is better swimming electricity and grabbing enemies with his tentacles
But the one downside is that you can no longer inhale enemies because you already have a copy ability using jelly jr
When the small baby you found the previous night literally inhales an entire watermelon, you know it's not going to be a normal day.
Feeding the small baby puffball was proving to be a challenge. No matter what Rick gave him, he didn't seem to get full, not one bit.
"Maybe we should stop... it doesn't seem like he'll get full anytime soon," Rick said, "we need to eat too.'
"Rick, we can't just let him go hungry. He's just a baby, and babies need-"
"I think I should probably go look for his parents. See ya, Pick!"
Before Pick could object, Rick grabbed the puffball and bolted out the door. Pick yelled something at him, but he was out of earshot.
For convenience, he let the little puffball ride on his back.
It boiled down to him asking "do you know whose baby this is?" to everyone he saw, each time getting told no. Eventually, he had gone through the entire population of the village.
"...th-there's no way someone just... ditched this kid alone, right?... but... unless he somehow just appeared out of nowhere, but... is that even possible?... *sigh* Guess you're staying with me, little buddy."
However, there was one problem: Feeding him that morning was already a challenge. Rick had no clue had to raise a child. Assuming no one would come forward as his parents, well... Rick has already grown attached to the little guy.
He was going to need some help.
And he knew just who to ask.
"Glad you all could come! This is... well-"
"...is that a kid?"
Rick had invited a few of his friends for a "meeting" by the same tree he had found the puffball near. Those friends were Kine the fish, Coo the owl, Pitch the bird, ChuChu the octopus, and Nago the cat.
"Why do you have a random kid with you?" Coo asked.
"W-Well, y'see... Last night I was going to pick some apples from this tree, and I found this little guy in a bush nearby. No one knows who he is, so... what else am I gonna do with him? He already likes me! See?"
The child had fallen asleep while still clinging onto his back. He seemed to be quite comfortable there.
"Aw, he's so cute~! What's his name?" ChuChu asked.
"Well, if he doesn't have a name," Kine said, "I can help you come up with some! I have a list."
"Why the heck do you have a list?" Pitch asked.
"What?? I think I'm responsible enough to be a parent! And now, looks like I'm getting that opportunity!... kinda."
He quickly pulled out a piece of paper, presumably the list, and looked through it.
"...hmm... Kristen, Katie, Kyle... how about Kirby? Looks like a Kirby to me."
"Sounds cool to me," Nago said.
"Everything sounds cool to you, Nago," ChuChu said, rolling her eyes. Nago just shrugged.
"Well, I like it!" Rick said. "Does anyone here not like it?"
No one said anything.
"Then it's settled! This little puffball is Kirby, and we're gonna have to take care of him!"
"GOT IT!!!" they all yelled together.

Hello and welcome to Day 25, where we take a short break from the characters and doodles to just take a look at the outside world and what’s around us! Today’s theme is all about your favorite locations! Got good, bad, or hilarious memories with a certain area in the Kirby universe? Then get your landscape on and draw it out, and try to explain how Kirby and co. were relevant there!
As for me, I went a bit retro on where to go, since I’ve played the more “8-bit” games first before truly diving into the 3d that is Robobot and Star Allies. At first, it was the OGs Dreamland and Dreamland 2 that helped me get into the swing of things! So I took a quick visit to the Rainbow Islands and have Kirby and the OG Animal Buddies fly around on a Warp Star!
Kirby’s kind of curious as to where the group will go next, as Rick is in a happy, bouncy mood during the trip. Coo’s out of it despite being the flyer, and Kine seems...tired. Moving around on the land a bunch must’ve done a lot to the guy!
And that’ll be all for Day 25! And because we’re in the homestretch, let’s have Day 26 be all about the Super Abilites and how powerful Kirby became with them! So have a nice day/night, and I’ll see you guys then, Poyo!
