This is a requested “Costumed Shantae” by Joey "yoshilite" Burns, a moderator for the WayForward subreddit: www.reddit.com/r/WayForward/
Hi-hi to anyone who is reading this!
So, this is Shantae, the hair-whipping, belly-dancing, half-genie guardian of Scuttle Town and the game developer WayForward’s overall mascot.
When I'm feeling depressed or unmotivated, my love for drawing tends to vanish with my feelings--but after coming across the Shantae: ½ Genie Hero
Kickstarter, it felt like my artistic skills were breathed into with a new sense of enthusiasm, and so I wanted to try my hand at some fan-work of the character.
So, the third drawing in the "Costumed Shantae" gallery, has her dressed in attire resembling the Reddit Alien mascot. Since there's no actual costume to take reference from, instead I went and made an outfit from scratch; the parts in orange-red and periwinkle reflect the up and down arrows on the Reddit site itself. The plushie, however--I went and added myself!

Thought it'd take way longer to get this done, due to not knowing for sure how to balance out the colors of the dress itself, but I think it turned out okay.
Do all of you think so too?
Until yet another upload,
