Thanks for 1000 pageviews everyone! ^__^
*PHEW* It's DONE! And it took WAY TOO EFFING LONG! All you painter pros have my undying respect!
Hope you all enjoy!!

SKetch: 0.03 Mechanical pencil on printer paper
CG: Photoshop CS2, Wacom Graphire tablet

This is the revised version. I tried to take y'alls advice, fixing the clouds and grass and this and that... Hope you like it better!
I actually did some research on clouds this time, and found some AWESOME cloud painting techniques from :iconaquasixio: *AquaSixio. Go check him out!!

I have had this picture saved on my computer for YEARS! It's one of my favorites, often I make it my wallpaper.
I'm glad to have FINALLY tracked the artist down.  If you even still come here haha.   Either way I needed to say I adore this picture!! I love everything about it! I absolutely adore how you've drawn them sitting and chatting together. So happy and engrossed in their conversation. Some downtime for them is nice for a change! I'm also in love with how you've drawn Zelda's lips. They are gorgeous!

I am honestly not a fan of LinkXZelda, but this is such a beatiful artwork.
I love how happy both of them look in here; especially Link and damn he deserves to be happy
after all this bad stuff he went through!

Very beautiful and serene.  The details and proportions of each character are designed very well, and the scenery is very breath-taking.

Does anyone know if this is available to buy without the watermark, or a print?

I remember this being the banner for the Zelda Dungeon Site. I was floored by it!

Nice work!

This is gorgeous. Feels very natural and peaceful. Love their expressions and postures. Captures a precious moment between the characters. I just love it! Thanks for sharing!

Just thought I'd give you a heads up about the editing and reposting of your image

Just to clarify, it wasn't myself who did it, but I just thought you'd like to be informed since no source or any mention/link of your original work was posted along side it.

I saw this pic in Colors 3d on the Nintendo 3DS, and I must say, it is amazing! Your work is done especially well here too!
