BK Prototype Art

I didn't see a post on this, so here's some minor bits of prototype art for charity by Rare.

It's supposed to be legit, for charity, from the original Banjo Kazooie creation.

The box art intrigues me then. I thought perhaps Gruntilda was large in the box art from back when Dream's antagonist was a giant. I suppose it's still possible, just unlikely. Also it seems as though the background of the current boxart was just made up and wasn't actually a level. Again it doesn't prove anything.

These are pretty cool! I wish they were a higher resolution, else they'd already be in the BKArchive...

Yep, they're real. I remember seeing these same drawings on the Viva Pinata Trouble in Paradise Cards.

If you look close at it, I'm almot certain it's spiral mountain that they're in...

Sheesh is that box art cool. Maaann... such a treat to see anything development-related for Banjo. A relic from that brief year or two spent in secrecy, when a team of a few crafted a masterpiece that would be cherished by millions for years to come.

And that sticky note is hilarious!

Yeah! It's so clear now - obviously Spiral Mountain on the prototype, and now looking at the final it's obviously Spiral Mountain with some extra jungly foliage added. I never puzzled that out until now, always just looked like a completely unique area made for the box.

(Though I don't blame myself or anyone else who didn't make the connection earlier - there's nothing in Spiral Mountain even remotely jungly....)

Definitely watching the concept BK cover art... deciding whether $150 is worth it though.
