Faron Woods by Gondalier Faron Woods by Gondalier
ZELDA FANART. Crankin' out the acrylics for the convention (tomorrow! EEP)!

I've always wanted to make a picture like this, but never garnered up the courage to do so. SO I FINALLY DID.

True story. :dummy:

It is Link in a forest hauling his master sword and looking for a fight like a baus. Or just chillin', cuz heros need their downtime, too. He's wearing Twilight Princess garb because it's AWESOME. JUST LIKE HOW CAPS ARE AWESOME.

9/4/13
OMGGGGGGG A DD WHHHUUUTTTTT???? Soooooo I was working at Glacier Park all summer and had no Interwebs and came back yesterday and saw THAT and THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH (belatedly. by, like, 2 months, hahaaaaa)!!!!! This made my day!

This is so fucking amazing man!
Can I have your permission to use this illustration for the cover of one of my tracks in my next VideoGame Music Album called "Infection #03", under my VGM solo project called "Pokérus"? www.pokerusvgm.com
I'll be SO happy if you say YES! <3 Please!

SO CRISP!
Would it be alright if I used this picture in one of my upcoming videos called So Cold Zelda XXXIV? If you want to check previous videos like the above out, search "Jac0Frost0" up on YouTube. Don't worry; I will credit you for your work.

Late comment is late.

Congratulations on the DD!

I can see why you deserve such an honour. The colours are so beautiful and really give the forest its lushness. Link looks like he's popping out of the picture. I can see foreshortening somewhat.

Great job on this Gondalier!

gorgeous. There is a really wonderful play of shadows and light in this, and the overall feel is relaxed but slightly melancholy. Just like Link after Twilight Princess I imagine.

I need to continue with Skyward Sword...

This is beautiful and amazing and gah! I want to be able to paint like this some day.

I have special nostalgia for TP, I think. I so haven't played it over 8 times with/without my sis and am now helping 2 of my friends play it

Simply stunning! This is beautiful work, the color work is amazing. It looks as if it's early morning, like the sun is just rising and it's not yet able to cast light directly down on the canopy. It makes the picture and mood very calm.
You used contrast well here, Link both blends in, and stands out in the environment. (Blends with the green, and stands out against the horizon)

Congrats on the (well deserved) DD!

Love the image, but the shield is a bit on the small side to be accurate. That's just my CC of it anyways.
