This is a requested “Costumed Shantae” drawing for Asavarserkul, a fellow Shantaerian (backer) from the Shantae: ½ Genie Hero
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.
Thus the fifth drawing in the “Costumed Shantae” gallery has her geared up in the Zero Suit outfit of the space-faring, bounty-hunting, ass-kicking Samus Aran, from the popular Japanese video game franchise
, Nintendo’s Metroid
(Image I used for reference: retailslayer.com/images/Displa…
I really enjoyed working on this--a costume from one of the most earliest and still most popularly famous female protagonists of video gaming history; may she remain an ass-kicker for many more years to come!
Until yet another upload,
