Rather happy at seeing Shantae getting back to the name of fame right now, she was such an underrated character when the game first came out and now everyone seems to love her, well done!
Like before your style has improved alot with giving even sharper details to the definition of the faces, the flare coming from the eyes, to even the outfits for Risky! Always did admire the Risky outfit for her as the skull is just perfectly designed to show off both her pirate attitude and her bust, everyone wins. ^o^
But nice setup on the pic with the villain grinning over the captured hero like seen in many animes and etc. But here you really get to attend to the looks and design quality of the characters than just the sex appeal and I have to say that's a nice change-up than what you'd be used to most times on the DA.
You paid good attention to their outfits, took the time to hone in on the paler/purple skin of Risky and even adding in the level of darkness of the pic to make it seem that much more sinister and evil in its look, excellent job XJKenny. On top of that you added your own touch to improve and wow our little minds and keeping their looks familiar enough to address them as the characters as they are, hey that's a good enough pic for this crab.
Can see why you chose this one piece for your favorite on the front of your page, it shows alot of your own talents and effort to bring these characters to life and into a setting where you really get alot out of something you'd expect would go in a naughty way, lol. So with that a tip of the ole hat you my friend, glad to see your work hasn't and won't stop down anytime yet. *insert high five here*
Yeah~ true XD she deserves the recognition she deserve. And thanks, I tend to improve and look back at some errors that I did XD And I also dig her upper skull outfit that goes along with her bust XD I always tend to draw their outfit the way that is it and took me some time to get it right XD True~ even when drawing characters that I like, I always keep the features what make them truly stand out so people would know what character that I am drawing XD and *^-^* Thank you very much *^-^*
Yeah well your not always going to get it right the first time with a new face and heck don't blame you on the sense of come characters can only go so far given their limited style and design.
Alas at least we have skimpy outfits to make up for that though, huzzah! And like you say too both for the skull top and the overall unique look of the character. Sure it may be some challenge, but hey that's the best part about drawing sometimes. *thumbs up*
