Hey, guys! I'm uploading some old art I never bothered to post because I was too afraid to post any of it. We'll start with this one, which I am still very
proud of! This is of my character, Karra, as Shantae from the series of the same name! Specifically, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.
I decided I wanted to try drawing Karra in the art style of Half-Genie Hero, mainly due to my overwhelming hype for the game, as well as the fact I noticed Karra and Shantae share traits! Such as their color schemes, long hair, and even share the same hairstyle, for the most part! So, I gave the style a shot, working from the few promo images that were out at the time. I should note that I did this sometime in 2014, around when the game was announced and the Kickstarter was still being updated with teasers. I may redo this in the future, as I used a really rough and ugly lineart brush, and it may look better vectored or done in my current art program.
Here is the image I used as reference: vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/s…
Please keep in mind that I do not own this style, nor did I trace from or take any material from the reference image. This is simply done as homage to the art style.
I'm a HUGE fan of WayForward, and I've been inspired by them for so long. I regret not posting this sooner! I have one other thing WayForward-related to post, which is coming soon!
