Shantae: Half-Witch Hero? by Mr-DNA
Shantae: Half-Witch Hero?
Last October, WayForward did a Kickstarter for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. One of their backer rewards was to have your art appear in-game! You'll actually have to find the artwork in the levels to fill a gallery in the hub town, or something like that. So despite the screams of my back account, I decided to take the plunge into crowd-funded video games and fulfill a dream to have my art in a game. (Not counting Mario Paint. Also not counting getting my shit together enough to get into the business.)

Anyway, they just announced the March 2015 deadline for artists. Even though I knocked this out before 2014, I'm suddenly having doubts. It's a problem I have when I do sketches at comic cons. Is this any good? Does this represent my style enough, or did I play it too safe? How would you feel if you picked this up as an unlockable in your video game? I have a few months to go back to the drawing board, so I'm looking for advice here.

(I'm practically setting myself up for people to say to redo it, because now you've already seen it before the games even out.)

This was done in marker and watercolor, with liberal amounts of color tweaking in Photoshop, for those of you who wanted to know.

Twiliburbs, page 3 (WIP)
It's something involving Wren's universe, so naturally Ebonii had to show up. She and Winifred have some history, at least on DeviantArt. For those of you who haven't played Twilight Princess, "SHROONG" is the best onomatopoeia I could muster for the weird noise the Shadow Beasts (the creature Ebonii has been turned into) make. Well, this is it until I color these three. No page four. I don't write endings anymore.

I would've called this page "Twilight Countess" if I could come up with anything half as good for Angela's page.

Twiliburbs, page 2 (WIP)
Angela tries to do the right thing, but her new impish nature gets the better of her. Too bad for Wren's character, Sam, who was also trying to do the right thing. No good deed goes unpunished, they say.

I'll probably add some crazy magic effects to the third panel once I color this.

I'll color this later, most likely after the holidays. Just wanted to post these now since I've been AWOL for a couple months now.

*see comments for link and caps lock rant
It's out.

Get hype here:…

Oh yeah, and thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone!

Tell me your opinion about the following: In my series' third story arc, there's a bunch of vampires trying to resurrect the one and only Dracula, sort of like in the Castlevania games. One part of this story has said vampires calling for assistance, only it comes from an unexpected source. Where's this source you may ask? Spoilers! It's (supposed to be) (Underburbs)'s infamous little blood sucker in a cameo similar to Rita Repulsa's in Turbo:A Power Rangers Movie

'My opinion' as in, is it okay to use her or not? Sure, just credit :iconunderburbs: in the description.

Thank you,sir, and just so we're not on the wrong foot, I plan on keeping Ms.Pale in the shadows.
The reason why is because I don't want to get sued ( and besides it adds a bit of a mysterious element in there).
Also I need to know where she currently is in the timeline of "The Underburbs" so I don't get confused ( I don't own any of your series' graphic novels so that's why I need a bit of catching up )

Whenever I decide to check your updates, I start by typing "mr-dna," and then I hear, "Where did you come from?" in my head, in John Hammond's voice, every single time.

101? That reminds me of the ever so great game by Platinum Games "The Wonderful 101“!

Not what I was referencing at all, but a great game nonetheless.
