Zelda by Matou31 Zelda by Matou31
A... not-so-quick painting (4h) in GIMP

MAKING OF : matou31.deviantart.com/art/Zel…

It's hard to keep posting those while I develop my video game... But when I'm sick of it, I come back to painting :D This is my take on the Zelda series! For once I didn't use a very specific reference. I first wanted to work on composition... and this came out.

Thanks a lot for your time|fav|comments|watch! I'm sorry I don't always have time to answer :'(. But I read everything!

I take it this is a twist on the iconic scene in A Link to the Past, where for the first time, the Master Sword can be seen; the moment when Link enters the Sacred Forest Meadow and sees a relic of bygone ages ensconced there; timeless, and ancient.

Nice story my friend :) I didn't thought that much before drawing it, but that could totally be an explanation! Thanks for stopping by!
