Zelda - Breath of the Wild by Anadia-Chan Zelda - Breath of the Wild by Anadia-Chan
I did another livestream last night, which was a lot of fun. I figured that I would paint Zelda to match Link from the previous night. I had a lot of fun painting her. Zelda from Breath of the Wild has become one of my favorite versions of Zelda so far. She's so strong willed and a little doubtful of herself, and she shows so much emotion in the few scenes we actually get of her. 
Thank you to those who joined the livestream!
This took roughly 2 hours to paint in Photoshop and Paint Tool SAI.

I really like how you made all of this come together! It really looks like her hair could be touched. And I think I really love how you got the light coming through the treetops on this, it helps the eye move around I think.

Excellent work!

BotW Zelda is my favorite Zelda too, for several reasons. I feel like we get a better sense of who she is as a person, insecurities and all, than we have with most of her predecessors. Even if we mostly see her in flashbacks, there are still enough of them and enough variety within them to give a strong impression of her personality. - espeIcially if you combine them with her diary in the castle. Also she's a huge nerd, and I love it!

On top of that, she ends up being powerful enough to not only keep Ganon at bay for 10 years (which serves as a nice inversion of their usual power dynamics despite serving the same functional narrative purpose), and even after Link comes in and fights off Ganon in an epic boss battle, she still deals the final blow. She couldn't have done it without him, yes, but he definitely couldn't have one it without her.

Anyway...all that aside, this is a great picture. Something about her eyes is particularly striking - maybe the contrast with the rest of her color scheme?

I totally agree! I am a long time LoZ fan and while I loved other versions of her (example, Sheik!) I really like this incarnation of Zelda. She's sweet and feminine, but not in a weak kind of way. She's got a REAL personality. All of her doubts and insecurities, wanting to be more, afraid of not being good enough. We even see more of a strained relationship with her and Link and her determination to prove herself. Her character is really refreshing. 
Not to mention that Link literally failed and she had to hold things down for a hundred freaking years. Like everyone she loved was gone, but she held on and did everything she was able to. I just love it. She saved him, and then he saved her. They saved each other. 
And thank you! :D I had a lot of fun painting her, especially the eyes :)
