Reddit Shantalien (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA Reddit Shantalien (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA
This is a requested “Costumed Shantae” by Joey "yoshilite" Burns, a moderator for the WayForward subreddit: www.reddit.com/r/WayForward/

:iconmonkeyhiplz::iconsays3plz:Hi-hi to anyone who is reading this!:iconsays3eplz:



:iconshantaedanceplz:

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!
:iconredditplz:

(Overall reference pic used for the plushie: www.ousbey.com/blog/the-stuffe… )

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?

You should totally do a Zelda one (note: it doesn't have to be one of Princess Zelda).

You know, the dress kind of looks like something from a Japan fashion line or a music video. Though it is a very good & a design I can imagine would be popular if real, though I'm not a fashion expert. :/ Also is it me or does the Doll make this even more cute, or am I just weird like that :/

:iconfluttershy-squeeplz::iconsays3plz:If it makes you think of something that's Japanese-related, then that makes me pleased as punch! And if the plushie makes it more cute, then that's what I was (originally) going for! Thank you so very much for your "weird" comment--which isn't really all that weird!:iconsays3eplz:

I can't believe that there's barely any Bioshock-related icons to use! I can't even find any featuring the Little Sister!! WHAT A CROCK!!!

Np, the reason she looks like one to me is the dress could be altererd to look like the ones the litte sister wear and the doll reminded me of the Mr.Bubbles doll from bioshock two, but its just a thought

You thinking of possible similarities between this and the Little Sisters of Bioshock is a compliment to me--so it's okay!

Also, finally found a Little Sister icon: :iconlittlesisterplz: (It didn't pop up on the site where I usually go searching for icons.)

:icontransparentplz::iconfluttershyplz::iconsays3plz:is a social news and entertainment website where registered users submit content in the form of either a link or a text post.


Other users then vote the submission "up" (orange-red arrow) or "down" (periwinkle arrow), which is used to rank the post and determine its position on the


site's pages and front page. The one I'm linking towards (in the Artist's Comments) is the subreddit that focuses mainly on WayForward--and Shantae--in general.:iconsays3eplz:
