Artwork/Render, 2D/3D whatever, they're both there. I just thought I should share what I found.

I believe it's all artwork. A render is in game...doesn't look to 64ish to me...

Anyway, these are kinda old promotional stuffs.

These are renders. You are thinking of another type of 'render.'

Renders can be hand-drawn, computer generated, etc. There's entire sites worth of people who create renders of official art and stuff.

They're digital renders that were used for promotional art. The N64 actually would've been able to display images pretty close to what we're discussing, but they would've had to have been prerendered images, rather than whatever the opposite of prerendered is. Prerendered images are essentially pictures/animations/videos saved within the ROM that the system accesses rather than creates. Rareware pioneered the use of prerendered graphics with the Donkey Kong Country Trilogy in order to push the graphical limits of the SNES. Though games still used prerendered graphics in the age of the N64 (Mario Kart and Killer Instinct), they were largely reserved for small details, menus and cutscenes because newly achievable polygons were infinitely more dynamic.

Also, none of these images are new to me; I had both the Prima and Nintendo Power Player's Guides, which used these images heavily.

I hate to bump a five year old thread, but I just found these renders and I couldn't think of where else to post them.

Banjo Walking

E3 1998

While we're on the topic, I can't find a specific render of Banjo, Kazooie, and Mumbo-Jumbo sitting by a camp fire while Mumbo is casting a spell. I think it was on a lunch box, but I can't find it anymore.

Here is a piece of the render. Mumbo is on the right while Banjo is flinching on the left.

Edit: Well, I just found the other half. I know both halves pieced together exists out there somewhere.

Banjo Flinching

Me again. Someone on 4Chan /v/ just posted this render in this thread.
Once again, it's a new render I've never seen before. Where are people finding these things?

Could be a Rare staff member posts on 4chan. It's not unheard of.

I feel like I've seen that one before. I can't say for sure where, but I feel like it isn't new to me..

Still trying to figure out what combination of rhythmic chants and square dancing maneuvers summon Whyme to the forums.

I found it!

Mumbo Jumbo looks very similar to the picture in Mad Monster Mansion, but I knew they weren't the same.
