Been a while since I posted something. I finished this about a month ago, but didn't get around to posting it yet. This is a redesign of the Naga enemy from the Shantae series. I wanted the Naga to have a bit more of a snake like appearance, so the artistic changes made to this character are the under belly, snake eyes, larger mouth and the co-bra. Believe it or not, snakes have really big pupils (cutesy eyes) but many people often draw snakes with thin sharp pupils, to make them look more threatening and evil. Also, the idea of using a cobra as a co-bra was an idea that hit me after spending some time looking up reference materials of snakes. I also like her hair, reminds me of Poison's hair from the Final Fight series.

Hey quick question... Which NPC from the Shantae series should I draw next? Sky, Rotty, Bolo, Mimic, or Risky? I having a hard time deciding myself.

Wow, this is a pretty crazy redesign Harvey. XD And creative too, the co-bra is quite punny. X3 Interesting fact about snakes too, I didn't realize their eyes are actually larger than the thin slits I usually see in art. You still made this look freaky even with the larger eyes, IMO.

Also, as for NPC ideas, I'd definitely like to see your take on Sky. XD

Thanks, personally I like them with large eyes. And can't help but smile whenever I see her mouth. She's just so cute... for a monster. Anyway, I'll think I'll be drawing Sky next. I got some cool ideas for her design. This will be fun.

For a monster, yeah, she does have some cuteness to her. XD Still all around menacing just looking at the hands and such though. =-P And I look forward to seeing your take on Sky, there needs to be more fan art of her. X3

Thanks! It's all vector. It's my favorite way to do line art and coloring.

I just hate, hate, HATE these serpentine maternal fornicators!

Nice job on the picture, though. Really brought out the "monster"

They were far less annoying in Risky's Revenge.
