Risky Boots

Wayforward has been one of my favorite developers since I was 12 and a very nice man at EB Games suggested I buy Shantae for my Gameboy Color. Recently I have been reminded of just how awesome they are because of a bunch of new releases, two new Shantae games, the Mighty series, and Double Dragon Neon, to name a few. But all these weren't enough for me, so for nostalgia's sake I went to a new local Play N Trade the other day and traded in a bunch of the next gen titles that were collecting dust on my shelf for a few of their old GBC and GBA licensed titles. You can imagine the look I got for trading Fallout 3 for Barbie: the Princess and the Pauper.

You might understand better why I did this if you read this article:Might Switch Force: Inside Wayforward's under the radar Wii U launch game

Anyway I noticed they have a fan art section on their website so I decided to work on a little tribute to send their way.

The character is Risky Boots from Shantae. She's still a work in progress. I hope to be able to pose her once the initial sculpt is done. I'm still getting used to some of the new zbrush features and trying to understand the best way to use dynamesh.


Decided to work on it a bit more today:
