Very impressive, wish I could draw like this
Very nice :)
Oh god, Shantae in her jammies is so cute it's killing me!
*hurk blarg dead*
Oh snap, Mariel Cartwright on this joint? Yes please!
Also, put Shantae in Skullgirls, Mike Z pls, etc.
With Mariel on the project, I now know that Shantae's alluring hip gyrations are in the best possible hands.
Nice interview. Jammie Shantae for the win.
Never played Skullgirls. I know Bozon has interest of Shantae being in Skullgirls but I wouldn't know how well Shantae would fit in the Skullgirls world. But I'd love to see Shantae do a crossover in some form (even Super Smash Bros.)
THIS IS TUNA WITH BACON!
I got into Skullgirls because I wanted to get the Mane6 access to their fighting engine. Very very impressed with the animation. Mariel is an asset to the industry for sure. WayForward is lucky to have her working for them.
Great to see an interview with the animator. I think I've said it before but the animations look great. They're really fluid and Shantae is drawn very cute. Of course I love to see hand-animation so I have nothing but praise, keep up the good work! ^-^
Awesome this is a must for me now
*takes out list of people I admire and writes down Mariel's name*
Yay, Mariel! Love your Skullgirls work.
Can't praise the animation in Skullgirls and Half-Genie Hero enough; really wanna start doing some of my own. In the mean time, what else has she worked on...go go gadget Wiki!
So epic! Keep on keepin' on Mariel!
I'm curious to know if her penname is Kinuko.
10/10 would marry.
I wasn't that familiar with Shantae before, but when I saw the video on this KS I immediately fell in love with the character design and animation. That's what made me support this project and learn more about the series, and now I call myself a fan of wayforward's work :3
Give this lady a medal.
I'm not even kidding when I say that Shantae should get a guest spot in Skullgirls.
I'm not and Mariel you should take this suggestion seriously please. Just run it by Lab Zero and think about it. Maybe not until late 2014 or whenever but this is a really good idea waiting to happen.
Shantae is SkullGirls would be awesome!
Ha, I thought I knew her from somewhere, turns out she actually did animations for Cryamore as well! Her profile picture is the same in the Cryamore kickstarter page.
I didn't much care for the character design of Skull Girls but really enjoy her art and animation for Shantea. Character design is everything for me I guess haha.
Haha oh snap! I backed cryamore.
Oh man, no wonder the animations look so slick. So Awesome.
Watched that GIF at the end for way too long. Gorgeous animation!
Nice interview. Lovely gif at the end, too. Thanks for sharing this.
Welcome to the team, Mariel :-)
Oh man - I LOVE me some Skullgirls'! My favorite fighting game of the past generation, actually - it's just too perfectly designed. A brilliant, thoughtful combo of being accessible, balanced, and having depth. And the style of the visuals and music, and that animation? It's all... um, delicious? Yes. That's the word I will go with - delicious!
The talent behind Shantae here is getting ridiculous, you guys! :)
I adore Mariel Cartwright's art style! This cements how high-quality this game will be!
Favorite game FF7? She's a keeper!
Why is she so white here?? I'm cancelling my pledge. She never even wore that outfit before.
But in all seriousness, I feel kinda bad for her. And anyone else who worked on Shantae. Their work is getting criticized for a choice of skin tone. Now I understand if she was green or something, but come on.
Way Forward + Vee + Mariel
Real dream team.
Mariel is a very beautifull name, first hearding it.
Skullgirls needs to be on wiiu so I can out what the hype is about.
