Good stuff. Any and all Shantae references are more than welcome.
I like how it is animated.

God, I haven't drawn this fucker in literal years.
This. Is Soup. That is his name. The story behind that is, when I was a lad of ~11, I was using Scratch 1.4, making shitty palette swaps. Someone called me out on that, like "is that all you can do" and I immediately set out to prove myself. I made a project with a chicken broth-colored background, a black floor w/ two airborne black rectangles, and made a red ball with a face just like the one up in the top right.
I did "Save As," but couldn't think of a name for the project. Something happened where my mother looked at it, somehow that led into the project being named Soup. By his next appearance, I gave him white mitten hands and got rid of his mouth. The next: he gained Kirby feet, which were also white. Shortly after, we had that one you see imitating Toad from the 1st SMB. Fast forward a few years, and I was alternating between these three designs you see in the image (that aren't the ball). As you can see, even now I rather like the design utilizing white for the sphere instead of red.
