I like to think of how Zelda spends the hours when she's not helping Link to save Hyrule. The kind of education a princess of her calibur must receive... Magical, natural, political... Wish we had more of her story.
Ah, she looks beautiful, I love how you captured her in a candid moment. She's usually all dolled up and proper, so seeing her letting her hair down, dipping her toes in the water etc, is really a beautiful thing.
If I'm completely honest; I HAVE NO @#$%& IDEA HOW THE LEGEND OF ZELDA BECAME SO SUCCESSFULL STARTING WITH THEIR OLDER GAMES!!!! I played em back then and couldn't do anything with em and even going back and playing em now is like time-traveling back to when I was a child trying to solve the game's immense puzzles!! I only ever stuck with Zelda because of their presentation(turns out I'm actually weak for medieval themes, who knew)and identifiable(often)child hero! How any child ever solved a single one of the games' enigmatic puzzles is beyond my scope! Even their newer games are a mindbender to solve! What you know about that!?
I love the sunset shading. So serene and beautiful. I also noticed how Zelda isn't wearing gloves. It's nice to see her without them. What really catches my eye in this piece are Zelda's legs and her hair. The shading on the legs is amazing and you made Zelda's hair look so rich, thick, and flowing.
Shadow... well, the sun is setting in front of Zelda, so the shadow is on the other side of the scene where the drawing doesn't reach. There, all solved.
yeah. at first they were too small in the original sketch, then I drew them too big!! I'll try and pay more attention in the future. Idk though if I'll ever fix this pic since its already finished. thank you for the comment though
