Hey! Listen... by Ailin34 Hey! Listen... by Ailin34
Link and a fairy... I haven't gotten to play Twilight Princess or Skyward Sword... (T ~ T)
But yeah, Link here is inspired by the Twilight Princess design.

First project like this that I've ever finished within two days.
Loooooong overdue fan art. This dude has been one of my best friends for about a decade now. I felt inspired out of the blue last night, and this is the result! <3 <3 <3 Have to get inspired more often lol

Took about 10 hours--pencil sketch, took pic with cellphone, and then colored in Photoshop CS6

Just learned about the 'Color' layer filter thingy. Looooove. Though I intended to paint from grayscale...I actually made the mistake of starting with black on white. Learned loooaads with this one <3 Haven't had this much fun in a whiiiile.

Amazing! I love what you did with Navi (or the fairy); that's always what I pictured the fairies would look like under the glow. :)

Thanks sooooo much!! I appreciate your comment.(^ - ^)<3 <3 I'm glad you held my same curiosity. And I didn't register there were so many different fairy designs. They look totally different in Link Between Worlds...

You're most welcome! :D And wow, I just looked them up and they do look totally different! (at least I'm assuming that the things I found were indeed fairies...)

Yeahz! A cellphone cam seems to work pretty well for projects like this, with light sketch work. I used to think that I could only rely on a scanner, but really only have to use one for super detailed line art. I think I'll post some sketches soon and link them. It's pretty cool to see the before and after.  Thankiez for your comment Panda<3 (^ o ^)/

You're so kiiiiind!
Your feedback means a lot to meeee.
Thank you for commenting!
(* o *) Make a print? Through deviantart?
I thought of it in passing once, but didn't know whether it was ready for that.
So your comment is really super encouraging!
Then I'll definitely set a table up for my university's upcoming gaming tournament.

Sorry to respond so laaaaaate, a lot has happened in between. I'm horrible w/staring the Gift Horse in the mouth and not responding immediately. Feel free to share whenever you'd like. Oh and what do you mean by "time of year?" I'm intrigued!

Fairys - I've noticed - in a lot of art mediums tend to take on some of thier surroundings.
This includes the use of nature (Link has always been influenced by certain elements).
By combining the two - the "fairy-less" hero of Hyrule/fairy and the language of flowers you can easily think of positions (celebrations) in which to depict them.
Just to think of a few - snow, holly and maybe mistletoe for Christmas.
Or in January a *new* outfit for each in honor of the new year! I forget which country the LoZ series began in but I think you get the general idea ;)

These are all cherished ideas that I've saved on my projects list, thanks to you. You've no idea how much I appreciate it! You..are sooo smaaart +clever. Be super grateful for those creative streams in your brain. I wouldn't have thought of the seasonal themes at the moment. Funny when nature's a big theme in a lot of my art work. So thank youuuuu.

Wow! I am so impressed with this painting. My daughter-in-law loves playing Zelda to the point that my grand-daughter now plays the game too. And of course, since he's the one to buy the games, my son plays it too. I had tried to play Ocarina Of Time, but I learned that those type of games just aren't  for me, but I do like watching them play. :D

That is sooo lovely, that your family is into the Legend of Zelda series!! I wish for that, but I'm the only one into video games in my immediate family. At least my parents are Sci-Fi junkies lol. 
That is so cool that you tried to play too. They are crazy fun to watch, agreeeed.

Beautiful!!! ^_^ You should definitely play Twilight Princess if you get the chance! My fav LOZ game! ZeldaMaster2010 on YouTube does a Let's Play! of Twilight Princess unless I'm much mistaken.  He's lots of fun to watch!
