Super Princess Shantae (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA Super Princess Shantae (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA
This is a requested “Costumed Shantae” drawing for :iconmario9919:


: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.

Thus the second drawing in the “Costumed Shantae” gallery has her dressed in the royal dress of the Mushroom Kingdom’s resident damsel-in-distress, Princess Peach, from the Japanese video game franchise, Nintendo’s Mario.

(Image I used for reference:… )

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,

Is there a base by chance for Shantae in HGH style? Like a no clothed version? I'd like to try and make something like this myself.

I really wish WayForward developed a Mario game so that Shantae could team up with the Mushroom Kingdom heroes. =P

What was the update?
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013
First time using that feature so I didn't know for sure if it was worth check marking the box anyway.

Basically, though, I did edit the logo on the picture to read SUPER Princess Shantae instead of just Princess Shantae.

Reason for why I changed the logo slightly is in the Artist's Comments.

Does this mean she'll be her own rescuer?
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
No, not necessarily. (Or maybe it does...?) :iconfluttershyshrugplz:

But it does mean that Shantae looks way cuter in Peach's dress than Peach herself.

Think you can do her in Anna Hottenmeyer's driller uniform from Mr. Driller?

Due to having over twenty or so requests under my belt right now, I'm afraid I can't take any more requests at this time, but I'll gladly accept it once I can get through the rest of these other ones. In the meantime, please write your request or type it down somewhere for safekeeping so you may not forget it, and once I'm back down to zero, I'll let you know that I'm free to accept requests again.

Is that all right with you, Mr. Tommypezmaster?
Tommypezmaster Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
Yeah, would writing a note to you good?
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
That would help a ton I believe. I can move it to the "Requests" folder I've got saved there.

Go for it!
