Risky Sketch by MattBozon Risky Sketch by MattBozon
Something a little rough and a bit lopsided, but kind of different.

Looks pretty much like a character from... Pirates of Carribean?

Awesome sketch! The art style is fantastic, and her pose is intimidating. Simply an awesome sketch of an interesting character of a fantastic game! Thank you for creating this game and this universe of wonderful characters! Congratulations, and success on future projectsClap

Cool sketch! c:

On the subject of pirates, what are your opinions on piracy? Are they lost sales, in your book? Is it justified if getting the game in X country is very difficult, unreasonably expensive, and/or unobtainable (E.G. For the longest time, Earthbound)? Just wondering about these things from other points of view.

Cool! This makes me think Risky should have her own minigame or something. I have played "Shante: Risky's revenge" sir, it was a good ride! Your art made it all the better!

I love this rendering of Boots. It's influenced the way I've been trying to draw her. Thanks for the inspiration!

Everything actually seems to go her way in the games...even if her plans are slightly altered! How many villains do you know actually get away with the stuff they want to accomplish??? Anyway nice work

Matt, never EVER say your work is rough EVER again. You are an amazing artist. This blows my mind- If only I could design characters as loveable and deep as yours! I think we all admire you. Your style is literally my favourite. Long live Matt Bozon and his artwork! Rock On.

Ohhh my goodness is that a hidden skull on her torso? The belt forms the teeth, the cloth under her chest has something of a nose shape, and of course the breasts look a lot like eyes... Very clever. Her face is certainly sinister, I love it. Not like any other artwork I've seen of her!

Freaking love Shantae and the other games you've done art for.

It occurs to me she is awfully pale for a Pirate who likely spends a lot of time in the sun. =P

Well, she's a pirate, and with hips like that she's got to have a booty, so...eh, nevermind.

Good question. Probably bare, maybe with a very long red ribbon tying the halter on.

I really, really like this version of Risky.

I'm especially fond of the green eyes and the mid-short hair.
I'm not that fond of the pants going down at the crotch, but the jeans themselves fir and the outfit as a whole is great. It feels like a much more natural thing for a pirate to wear, and the skull face is more subtle and a bit creepier.

The whole design tells her as a genuinely bad person, rather than the mischievous and jolly feel her regular look gives off. This one allows for her to still be silly, funny, and snarky if she wants to, but doesn't give off that affable kind of personality where you think she might be easily pushed aside by another villain (That sort of soft look that Dr. Eggman and Bowser have). I think the driving force for that is the face, but the outfit complements it well. She feels like a more competent pirate, treading the fine line between the fun villain and the loathed villain.

Gotta say my favorite part is the tooth-belt, though. I was never too fond of the way the top of her pants formed the jaw of the skull, but this version is perfect.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic design. Even if it's just a throwaway and we never see it in a real Shantae game, it still needs to be appreciated.

Man, Risky does look more rough now in more ways than one. :love: I guess she's ticked off about losing to Shantae twice and is not going to let it happen a third time. :+favlove:

Who ever said Risky was cute? I did, very far away in a heavily fortified bunker.
She's looking very sinister here. Something about that glare in her eyes.
