I give you another Zelda and Link picture because 1) they make me happy and 2) I kept waiting for this to happen in the game, but it never did, so I decided to make it happen myself.

This picture was tons of fun to draw! And to color. I hadn't done a real background in a while, and admittedly this background is a little simple, but it was still fun.

I recorded some of the coloring on my Livestream channel, here! www.livestream.com/gwendybee

Now this is a real power couple, in a literal sense as they have a power of the tri-force.

I know, right?! And then it didn't, and I was sad about it, so I choose to pretend that it totally did happen after the camera/Loftwings left.

That's the spirit! If something doesn't happen in the game- fanart! But really, it would have been nice if this happened!

I like your color palate in this, and I love their poses. It looks very believable. The drapery is so fluid as well!
My only critique is it feels Link seems somehow oddly lanky. Perhaps his head is too thin? I'm having trouble putting a finger on it.

Beautiful and sweet piece overall!

You know, looking back at it, I can believe that something about his head/face proportions are off. I do have a tendency to draw lanky people, even when they're supposed to be kind of short like Link, haha.

Thank you! x)

Awww, this is beautiful!!:aww:

You drew them so perfectly! I love the happy feeling it gives. Every little detail is just brilliant. They're so vibrant and attractive and their expressions are so sweet. I really like the shadowing and how Skyward Sword-esque the colors are. Two details I particularly like are how her ankles are crossed and the skirt of her dress is swishing around the other side of him.

Anyway, I could keep going and going...I adore this so much.:love:

And thank you for asking! If you include a link back to the image on deviantArt, you're more than welcome to use it. :) You should link me the fanfic when you publish it! :D

Hey I like your style! :heart: What do you think of mine? [link] (I wish I could have made more in my picture my own but I could only do so much with the crappy program I used. I drew the characters and painted them but found the chainmail as a picture online and the background)LOL

This is so lovely. The colors are so wonderfully soft and elegant. I also love their poses and the joy in their faces.
I still haven't played the game (just watched my husband) but this makes me to give a try myself.

It's on my games-to-play list. ;P
Although I have to admit that I just prefer the darker games in the Zelda series (Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess) and from watching my hubby play this one looks a bit too bright for my taste. But I need to give it a try of course. I love Zelda too much to skip this one. :)

Visually, it's definitely brighter than a lot of the other Zelda games, but the story is still compelling and what I really like is that it has the most fleshed-out characters, including Link, in a Zelda game to date. Even though it's visually pretty colorful, the villains do still feel threatening, which is nice.

Ahh I still need to play Majora's Mask in its entirety! I played it when I was a kid, but I refused to leave the town because I was scared that 1) wolves would get me and/or 2) the time limit would run out before I made it back.

From what I've seen I'm willing to believe that. I liked how diverse the people at Skyloft were for example and how much you see from their everyday life (and I just had a look now and then so there's bound to be even more). It's just that I usually don't immerse myself as deep into the game when the athmosphere is too happy (kinda sad, now that I think about it). I still enjoyed Wind Waker a lot and I loved Minish Cap for Vaati (personally I think he's prettier than Ghiraim) but whenever I think about replaying one of the older ones I always pick the darker ones because they were so much more memorable to me.

Majora's Mask scared me a lot at first and it wasn't until I used a walkthrough for the first stuff outside of town that I finally got brave enough to go exploring on my own. :) I just loved playing as a Zora so much, even though it took me a bit to getting used to the controls for swimming. But when I finally got it I wasted quite a bit of time just swimming in the ocean and pretending I was a dolphin. :lol:

SUPER LATE RESPONSE IS SUPER LATE
Honestly, even though the visual tone is happy overall, I think the storytelling is the most compelling and has the most emotional depth I've seen from a Zelda game, just because they finally weren't afraid to give Link his own character and show him caring about the fate of the game. Some of the boss fights and later dungeons had scary moments, too, but they were balanced out by other stuff. The game was also more challenging than Twilight Princess because the fighting had a lot more finesse to it, and the classic-to-new-puzzle ratio was more even, so it wasn't always like "Oh, this must be the room where I shoot an arrow into that eyeball to get to the next room." That being said, I hope you like the game, but if you don't, that's cool too. I think it's a blast. :D

Being a Zora is pretty much the best thing ever, though, so there's that point for Majora's Mask. ;)
