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.

Working on this drawing was also lots of fun, and I’ve got plenty more requests to help keep me happily busy!
EDIT: Chose to change the title to Super Princess Shantae
so that when I eventually get around to doing other princess-related requests, they'll be able to differentiate from this one. Hopefully.
Until yet another upload,
