That horrible pun might only make sense if you've played Shantae Risky's Revenge. XD

Anyway, here's a points commission tackled for :iconson-void: Son-Void! He wanted the first boss fight in the game to take place underwater instead of a dry platform, so that's exactly what I drew. > : D Shantae turned out a lot differently than I imagined, despite having more than 15 official artworks for reference, but I'm quite proud of the result. (Although I'm sorry for not putting the trademark sheen in her hair for this. I couldn't choose a proper shade of lavender that wasn't disruptive to the rather dark color composition.)

Shantae is an original character by :iconmattbozon: Matt Bozon. This is fan art!

Update! I've reuploaded this at its original working resolution, and updated my watermark! (My username used to be johnluke728, omg.) Click the download button for the full size at 3840x2400, and enjoy it in glorious HD!

Tools : Logitech Wired Mouse - Software : GIMP - Layers : 88 - Time Taken : Over a Week - Working Resolution : 3840x2400 - Musical Inspiration : Risky's Revenge OST - Paths : 40 or more

Thanks Nai. ^o^ I'm happy with how the effects turned out too, I was expecting underwater atmospheric effects to be harder than this. XD

Thanks, Vala! :dummy: This tutorial really came in handy for painting the bubbles, and I was patient enough for making a small set of them this time. XD With my Milla drawing I kinda cheaped out with one bubble.

Haha yeah the good ol' copy and paste. xD I'm trying to avoid it as much as possible too lately, I used to abuse it so badly always. x'D

I know, I was even worse with copy/paste with textures as a teen. ;w; I thought wrapping and warping photos and textures around stuff was the only way to make it realistic as a teenager, boy was that assumption wrong. XD

Granted, I was thinking of the first game, but I'll take this as well. :meow:

Thanks, Luke! :D

Thanks, man. ^o^ And OMG, I wasn't even thinking of the squid from the first game. XD You could have said something on Tumblr while I was posting WIPs, but I'm glad you like the Squid Baron and the babies here too. ^^
