Shantae of the Jungle (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA Shantae of the Jungle (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA
This is a requested “Costumed Shantae” drawing for :iconbombertim:


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


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 fourth drawing in the "Costumed Shantae" gallery, has her dressed in an outfit consisting of jungle leaves tied together using thick and durable vines while padded with fern leaves for cushioning. I don't know what the flower I placed in her hair is called, but the flower adorning her leaf bra is supposed to be a lily; maybe at some point I'll change it to something else. Do roses grow in the jungle--or the Amazon for that matter?
(Reference image used for the flower in her hair.)

(Reference image used for the flower on her top.)

Drawing leaves is sort of hard--drawing flowers is way harder. Hopefully I won't have to do something similar for a while, but at least this drawing here gave me the opportunity to draw greenery. "Practice makes perfect!", an old quote which might or might not hold some truth to it, but it never hurts to keep on improving... Other than that, it was still fun!

Swag is one of the words I have for this pic. look out for a flying wild man in a loin cloth and watch out for that tree.

These are incredible, Would it be possible to request Morrigan's outfit from Darkstarkers?
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013
It most certainly would be possible. Unfortunately, due to having a plate full of requests right now, I might not be able to get to your request until I've gotten done with all of these. In the meantime, can you send your request via a Note so you or I won't end up forgetting it?

Ok I will do that and I also need to thank you for listening .
