Yoko Shantae (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA Yoko Shantae (HGH-Style) by DOLLofPARANOIA
:iconmonkeyhiplz::iconsays3plz:Hi-hi to anyone who is reading this!:iconsays3eplz:

:iconpurpledividerplz1::iconpurpledividerplz2::iconpurpledividerplz3::iconpurpledividerplz4::iconpurpledividerplz5:

: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.

And so the first drawing I try my hand at features her dressed in the attire of the iconic heroine, Yoko Littner (or Yoko Ritona),
from the Japanese anime & manga series, Gainax's 天元突破グレンラガン / Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

(Image I used for reference.)

Working on this drawing was just so much fun, and I hope to do even more in the near future.

This might be the only fluff DLC I will ever buy.

That is of course assuming it is ever made (hinthintwinkwinknudgenudgesaynomoresaynomore)

A DLC costume?
Reply
:icondollofparanoia:
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013
This Yoko costume? Nah...

After I managed to convince my brother to help donate something to the Shantae Kickstarter, I jokingly stated that if one of the costumes that Shantae could wear had been Yoko's outfit, then he probably would've gladly put more into it then what he gave.

Afterwards, I started teasing the idea of drawing that very image of a costumed Shantae, and then eventually I just decided to go ahead and take a shot at making it anyway.

Thus we now have what you see before you. It would be cool if this design did make it in as an outfit, but as it is it's just a fan-work of mine.

Despite that, thank you for commenting, good sir!

American idiom "that's a real knee-slapper" -- meaning I find the picture to be very funny -- passed through the Russian accent of Heavy-Weapons-Guy (from Team Fortress 2)

DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2013
Oh, okay. Don't know much about Team Fortress 2, though, other than that it's supposed to be loads of fun and there's thousands of videos featuring clips using its engine.

I don't watch them myself but I have seen a few that my brother has showed me. I do know about a few, though, which have pony models being used instead.

Anyway, I suppose I can use this then...

Sorry for the late reply. Just finally got around to getting back on here; it's been a busy day.

Anyway, good sir. What kind of request would you like to make?

:iconssbfan1:
SSBfan1 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Well there are lots of things that I have in mind, but do you think you could do a picture of Shantae with the Pokemon Gardevoir? If not then that's okay.
Reply
:icondollofparanoia:
DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
As for your request, can you give me a couple details?

Do you want regular Gardevoir or do you want shiny Gardevoir?

What about Shantae's outfit? Traditional red or Shantaerian blue?

I can most certainly do your request--just need to know the specifics is all.
Reply
:iconssbfan1:
SSBfan1 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
No that I think about, a shiny Gardevoir with Shantea in the blue outfit would be awesome. If you don't mind, think the two could belly dance together?

DOLLofPARANOIA Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
You must be a mind reader because that's actually what I was thinking of after first reading your request. Weird, huh?

I'll get to work on it eventually, but right now I've got some other requests to work on. I'm saving the ones with the more intricate costumes for last while planning to do the ones that are more simplistic first. After I finish the one I'm doing at the moment and then working on a couple other ones, I'll then get started on yours.

Is that okay with you?

Would you like to suggest a (female) character from a different franchise? Whoever you choose, I'll attempt to give Shantae a costume change.

How about it?
