The poll that lead to this fusion was focused on “bad girls”, ten villainesses from the long list of villainous women I’ve drawn over the years. Interestingly enough, the winning two were both ones I’ve only drawn a couple times, but I think the resulting character Shezula has some real appeal. I waffled a bit on her skin color, but ultimately decided to use the tone of Shego’s skin with Azula’s color, making her a classic pale raven-haired seductress type. I hope you all like her!
I didn’t really like the idea of nailing Cocotte down to a “favorite” partner. We’ve locked her in pretty tightly with Zangya through other Asks, but I’m not really invested in setting up any other permanent or recurring pairings with her at this time. However, I did like the idea of throwing her together with a new partner for this Ask, and I chose Shego as that person for a couple of different reasons. One is just that I’d already been considering doing something with Shego again, and this seemed like as good an opportunity as any. Another is that I thought their skin tones would compliment each other nicely. The final reason, though, is that I’ve begun to really like the idea of this Pride Trooper, a warrior of justice, unwittingly associating herself with a variety of people who were villains in their pre-Studio lives.
I’m sure many of you remember the season one episode of Kim Possible, where Drakken uses compliance chips on both Shego and Kim (even dressing Kim up as Shego!). As far as mind control goes, these chips were pretty hardcore, turning even the heroic Kim Possible into a slightly cross-eyed obedient puppet. I’m sure anyone who’s into mind control probably imagined something similar to this happening during the time Drakken is alone with the two girls, which we’re never shown.
I drew this one a few months ago, but just recently got around to coloring it. I think it still holds up in spite of its age, and I’m happy to have more Kim Possible content on the site.
