WOY - Party Animal

I've been watching more of Wander Over Yonder lately, and I'm absolutely in love with Wander's faithful steed/best friend Sylvia. She's some kind of bipedal horse-lizard thing, but something about her really attracts me. I think it's mostly her no-nonsense personality, which contrasts well with Wander's Looney Tunes-esque antics. When I saw her "party girl" outfit from the episode Party Animal, I just had to draw it. It's like the slutty transformations I love so much on characters like Sonic and Spike, except this one is canon (even if she did only wear it to get closer to the episode's bad guy).

Anyway, I wanted to experiment with a more human shape for Sylvia, especially in the typical areas of interest. I've seen artists keep her more on-model and have it work, and maybe I'll try drawing her that way one of these days, but for now I wanted to establish my own take on her. Hopefully one of these days I'll get to draw her more usual design non-party this way.

To those of you wondering, even though I'm still in season one, I am aware of Lord Dominator. I will probably be drawing her eventually, but she already gets a ton of love and I wanted to do Sylvia first.
