Old friends and new by Blackash Old friends and new by Blackash
Edit: I changed and added a bit, I figured it was worth another look. Link's face was retooled and I tried to add some splashes of color.

My entry for :iconthehistoryofhyrule:'s calendar contest.

I'm always nervous to draw Zelda fanart, I feel like I can never do the games justice. This will more than likely be tweaked before the deadline, I just really needed to get it to a point where I was okay with it.

I tried to add as many characters from Twilight Princess that my hand could take. I did have to add the flutist into the band, three characters wasn't cutting it for me. Wish me luck!

Here are some of the characters upclose [link]

That's very kind of you. Though there are probably more deserving pieces out there :) This one needs improvement

This is amazing! There needs to be more fanart with Hena and the Resistance in it; your style is so realistic! :squee:

I really like it!!
So much detail and little funny things.
I never noticed the band before. Where can I find them?

Blackash Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012   General Artist
Thank you! The band is in castle town in the central square northeast corner (on Wii, gamecube would be flipped), near the columns that surround the entrance to hyrule castle. I can't remember but I believe they are only out during certain times of the day.

I actually came upon them on accident, ran through the town and heard some music that normally isn't there. It sounds complicated to find them but just run around Castle Town central square.

Thank you! I love Hena I thought she was so cute, I wanted to add Coro as well but all my sketches he kept looking like a big ball of hair and not much else haha. So I guess it's just the sisters chatting.

A great piece of artwork. About the only issues I can see are with the door on the left and the shading on Link's face. The door seems to be at an angle to the wall. The shading on link's face is wierd...his skin is light from the top to his nose and then its like, BAM, 5-o'clock shadow

Blackash Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011   General Artist
Yes the door is bugging me greatly now, I will be shifting it around. Great point about his face...he does look like he is growing a beard hahaha I will lighten it up. He needs a lot of work. Thanks for your input :D

Oh, I love this! It's amazing! :la: you will probably win! :winner: But there's one thing that's a bit odd, and that's the perspective of the building to the left, seems like they are a bit tilted, well atleast the door seems to be. But all the other things are just lovely, the water fountain is stunning, Great job! :D

Blackash Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011   General Artist
Thank you! You are right it does look funky, I think I made the bottom of the door too wide, staring at this for so long made these problems just fade away. I will definitely have to fix that, thank you for pointing it out :D

I've looked at some of the other work that has been entered so far and I would bet money on you winning one of the decent prizes :P I truly believe this is your best picture to date, it's clear you've put so much thought and effort into it and I think it deserves to at least place near the top, if not NUMBER ONE! :D So don't worry :)

How the heck do you make everything look so good? It's all fluid and shiny and perfect! What program/brushes etc. do you use? I'm always under the impression that I am doing something completely stupid in how I use photoshop.

:blush: well thank you, though there are a lot of pieces I really love and I know there quite a few (I think 50 or something!) entries that haven't been submitted yet. Even if I don't win I've gained a few new watchers and I feel like this is a good accomplishment for me :D

I use photoshop, I've tried to learn Sai but it's so hard to use a new program after years of the same one! I'll note you with more cause I will drag on and on here.

I agree completely. You get a lot more notice from people just by being more community-minded on here, joining/running contests etc. :nod:

And thanks for the note :P
