Uh... hello there, children. 8)
Poor Link wants some sleep, if just for a liiittle while. Aww...

(Good one, Link. Leave your bow/arrows, map and wallet exposed for all of Termina to steal. And if Tatl is gone.. hrm... *cough* EATEN BY A BIRD*cough* when you wake up... I will laugh so hard.)

Just a tiny little nap... by ~Annausagi

Something about The Legend of Zelda seems to inspire dA's artists to product fantastically rich, detailed, storybook pieces of art. This piece is a labour of love and the artist deserves serious props for her patience and attention to detail. ( Suggested by Murasaki-Mary and Featured by animator )

You can totally see how exhausted Link is. He deserves his little nap ;)

You definitely have your talent in this, and I can't help but envy that. Although perhaps some day I myself will achieve this level of skill - I already am better than I was, and life is all about learning and improving, so I'm not done, yet! :D

Focusing on the pic, again, like the other, very beautifully done. I have to say I especially love your depiction of Tatl - admittedly, she is my favourite LoZ fairy! :D
And I'm just as sure that Tatl would give ANY bird indigestion! That, or she will keep ranting from within that bird's stomach until it dies from some kind of psychological trauma, or physical, if it decides to dive into the ground to make it stop. =P

Now I want to do more Zelda art... xD
Annausagi Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2016
That's the spirit! Never ever say "I can't get better than where I'm at now"... If I stopped at this piece then I wouldn't be able to rip it to shreds now. :,D And that's a good thing! Still, thank you so much for the compliments. <3
TarriPup Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Don't rip it to shreds, I appreciate your work! xD

And I think I covered what we mean in my other comment quite well. =P

And no probies!! :meow:

Link wakes up and Zelda is (for some reason) standing over him.
Link: "What?"
Zelda: "Oh nothing. It's just that... um... OH YEAH. YOUR LAZY BUTT LET THE WHOLE OF THIS PLANET GET ONE: Set on fire. TWO: Crushed by a physco moon. THREE: Overrun by Navi clones. FOUR: Invaded by the Burning Crusade. FIVE..."

lovely!!! What I like about this image is the proportions on the deku. They're smaller that what the game gives you, but it fits the image perfectly.
Contraltissimo Featured By Owner May 26, 2013
Oh my gosh, how can I----:noes:


I don't even----

How can I form any kind of coherent comment when I'm suddenly confronted with something this amazing!!?? :faint:

My gosh, man, the DETAILING! :wow: Augh wow.... just what an incredible scene.... such a beautiful quiet moment bursting with so much life. :heart:

Have a wonderful day!

That's so cute... Link might have an important duty to attend to, but we all remember that, every once in a while, heroes need their sleep too. And Skyward Sword Link might have been the one to reinforce that point.

Beautiful work, nice creation!

Those deku scrubs look so cute!
Jusbene Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow. This really is gorgeous. Every tiny detail makes such a difference. The deku scrubs surrounding him, Tatl with a form sleeping on his wallet, the little monkeys peeping out of the leaves, and the moon in the corner as a reminder of the time he's got left. This was definitely well thought out, and worth a DD. Great work. :clap:

Awwww, even Heroes need a nap, especially when they're little guys and haven't slept for days :aww: It makes me think he sat down for a minute.....and then next thing he's fast asleep!

I love the autumnish colors you used, and the Deku Scrubs are so cute :D
RandomPerson1310 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011
So... much... detail! You kinda overdid it on the wrinkles, but who cares!? Atleast he chose a peaceful part of the swamp though with that bird there, he'll probably wake up with an empty wallet.

Aw, he's so cute. I love how you've drawn Tatl, and the idea of the monkeys and dekus coming across them napping is adorable. The detail in everything is really amazing, though for some reason, to me, his hair looks a little off.
