By now some of you might know that I'm a Shantae Fan. This time I wanted to see how she would look like wearing Link's Tunic. With all the elements that these games share in common, it's not hard to make the connection :giggle:

I went and chose the most iconic of the Zelda series: Ocarina of Time Tunic, the Master Sword and the Temple of Time. I decided to go with the red tunic because it fits better with the usual color scheme of the little genie. 

I also made some color variations for the tunics, including versions without the white spandex to emulate the Young Link attire. I figured it would be a good bonus to add to the creation process of this artwork in the Patreon gallery. You can always check it if you're interested, I appreciate your support :)

In the meantime, I'm gonna keep waiting for the Half-Genie Hero release, her Sm4sh reveal, and her "out of stock in 5 minutes" amiibo (I still have high hopes :la:)

Thanks to CFood for your Patreon support. Knowing that you're a fan of Shantae and Zelda, I know you'll love this artwork as well :nod:

Suddenly, I see Risky as Ganondorf (shudders) not sure if that's a good thing or not

I think you had a mistake about your art?

is bolo supposed to be link? true bolo doesn't go on adventure, I mean Shantae supposed to be Zelda.

Well, it can't be a mistake when it's just an interpretation. You can be silly enough an imagine that Bolo is Zelda and Shantae is Link. (or Sky as Zelda) Risky as Ganondorf.

Shantae is the hero of her game, so it made more sense to make her Link. Nothing personal against Bolo, it's just what I wanted to draw :nod:

Bolo is Zelda? That's gay, my opinion is, in watch Quest bolo is the Hero to, well maybe he almost look rip off of Ike? Like bolo was almost in Smash instead of Shantae but my reason is I love bolo as link and Shantae was supposed to be zelda That's my opinion, well whatever you say about this.

The Legend of Shantae.

It would still be the The legend of Zelda, unless the princess was different XD  After all Link's name is never used in the title.

Matt Bozon also really liked it :D I wish they would make special nintendo DLC somewhere in the future, like a Link outfit for Shantae :D
IgnobleFiend's avatar
Or a Shantae game based in Hyrule. O_o

That would be really hard because way forward is still an indie studio, unless they improve relationships with Nintendo somehow.
IgnobleFiend's avatar
Would still be cool. :D

Undoubtedly! :iconshantaedanceplz:

As a fan of LOZ: Ocarina of Time, I approve of this.

It would be cool if Wayforward could actually do this on Nintendo ports. It would be a nice DLC content xD
