Shantae: Half-Genie Hero- A Revisit by GamefreakDX Shantae: Half-Genie Hero- A Revisit by GamefreakDX
A sort of continuation of The Encounter.

'The Encounter' was a picture of the Giga Mermaid around 8-9 months before she was revealed finally in trailers of the game. When I retweeted the picture on Twitter, Matt Bozon commented: "When I saw this image months ago I was pretty surprised at how close you were!" (twitter.com/MrBozon/status/742…)

I had to draw the Giga Mermaid again, but I didn't know how to or what to do with her.
Once I played the game and faced her, I was so happy because... well Mr. Bozon was right. Was freakishly close. After that... I knew how I should draw her.
I was Motivated!

I'm quite surprised the credits sequence on Half-Genie Hero doesn't have any aftermath pictures like Pirates' Curse did...

Well I'm sorry if my art wasn't/isn't up to your standards.

Do you go up to young kinds or beginner artists and say that their art isn't "Normal"?

I don't think mermen exist in the world of Shantae.

Well, how do mermaids reproduce themselves? They're half-humen and half-fish. There probably are mermen. These mermaids are probably just a tribe of virgins, LOL... :lol: Or maybe they have no gender. It somehow creeps me out.

Let's just say on the TV screen compared to the mermaid, Shantae's essentially a dot on the screen.
