Princess in Repose by arvalis Princess in Repose by arvalis
A commission of Princess Zelda reading a book for :iconungaii:

I thought it was an interesting idea to have Zelda just relaxing inbetween getting captured. He requested her to have slippers made in the vein of gerudo foot wear from ocarina of time. Im not entirely sure what she is reading, perhaps you should download to find out.

I do take commissions rarely if i really like your idea. Dont be afraid to shoot me a note.

I can't help but picture Zelda doing this WHILE captured. Come on, Ganondorf never keeps her in a dungeon... Great work!

I love how she is very relaxed as opposed to how she is normally portrayed as very well-kept and noble. The emotion here is very calm and carefree. :)

I really like this picture; mainly because you expressed natural serenity and peace so amazingly well in this picture. And not just with princess Zelda, but the whole background, you made it look so cozy! Plus, the light outside the window and how it hits Zelda and the objects is just so natural and flowing and in all the right places. Really, great work! :D

Beautiful! I love the softness of the colors, they give it the same feeling as a royal portrait, though obviously this one would be a little more abstract, hehe..
