Been trying to find a commission I seem to have lost so I looked through my old notes. It wasn't there.

So out of curiosity I skipped back to page 63, the very first note I got and started reading through, reminding myself of users who are no longer here. Surprising myself by finding people who *are* still here. Also finding out what a complete prick I was often times.

I mean, I still kinda am. I'm not very tollerant, I guess. If I feel I'm being mucked about with I just shut down and wait for the moment where I never have to deal with the person again. I used to be more aggressive about it back in the day. Way more opinionated and eager to muscle into drama. And my chief resource was Sonic fan art, so drama is definitely what you get in there.

Feels weird to be able to find dumb stuff you wrote in your early-to-mid 20s perfectly intact and readable. Stuff from 10-12 years ago that felt so important that now I can barely remember. I won't get into details but there were some really significant events that lasted months that I'd completely erased from my mind. And reading through I can understand why.

Never look back, ladies and gentlemen. Not when the view ahead is sunnier.

I saw the sketch for this when :iconraya100: uploaded it and I absolutely had to colour it.
raya100.deviantart.com/art/Tig…

I comissioned my good buddy Spaz to ink it for me (Can't link to him here, sadly. I'd get in hella trouble) and began work when I got a moment.

It's been a long, long time since I attempted cel shading. Mostly because for one I use a mouse and for two I was never keen on how Photoshop used brushes and such. I'd heard people talking about turning up smoothing options in Sai and tried to find if Photoshop had something similar. Then I remembered the brush spacing options and turned them down so the brushes would repeat more frequently. This made the drawing *just so much smoother*. No bumpy bits, no repeated re-drawing and erasing to try and smooth it out.

After that it was a matter of using official art as a guide and working from there. If I'd used my own style it would have looked somewhat different, but I wanted this to look more authentic. I was stuck for a while on what to colour her bonds, but then I figured I'd just use some Yuri colours. I like how it turned out.

Here's the clean version just in case the noise version looked too much like arse and I wasn't capable of seeing it.

This version I tried some chromatic aberration and some noise to make it look like a more old school anime. Like it was a screenshot...kinda. Just in case, I'm going to upload a clean version, too.

Zelda's Curse 04
--------Story --------

Zelda opened her eyes, hurling as much light magic as she could at the corruption that was twisting her body into this grotesque shape. Her eyes flared with magical light as the darkness threatened to consume them. But...something was wrong. Instead of fighting the darkness her own power seemed to be escaping from her. She tried to focus her energies once again but it was too late. The light was being driven from her. She cried out as the darkness consumed her soul. The former princess pitched forwards onto all fours and gasped for air as she felt her very thoughts becomming corrupted by this terrible evil. A voice echoed in her mind. At first she couldn't understand the words but she soon realised it wasn't speaking. It was laughing.

A deep, cruel, gutteral laugh that made her shudder. As the last remnants of her mind were being overtaken she came to a terrifying realisation. This could be only one thing.

Ganondorf.

It was the last thought to cross her mind before the malevolence hidden within the necklace took full control. She hissed a satisfied laugh, her eyes flaring orange with malicious intent and licked her lips. She was back at last! Sitting back in a kneeling position she inspected her new body, slowly trailing a hand over her impressive breasts, feeling the softness. Her hand trailed down her stomach, now taut with muscle. She began to admire the golden jewelery now secured on her arms and wrists. A little gaudy perhaps, but it matched her new look. The power she'd poured into the necklace had unexpected side effects. Ganondorf could never have expected his power would be taken up by the wielder of the triforce of wisdom herself, nor could he have ever dared to hope for such an outcome. In a single act he had ensured the outcome of the battle that was yet to unfold. He scarecely even needed Zant now, but he would make for a suitable lacky once the war was over. Nothing would stop his conquest of Hyrule and the kingdom of Twilight now.

Perhaps there'd even be a way to resurrect his own body, given time. The pricess was now irrevocably corrupted. There was nothing left of her inside this vessel now. Should he ever regain his full power, she'd make for a suitable concubine.

The creature once known as Zelda stood up. As she turned she spotted her rapier discarded some yards away. She reached out a hand and lifted it telekinetically, bringing it to her and holding in the air at a distance. She smiled, the blade was still embued with light and merely touching it would burn her skin. We couldn't have that. With a barely perceptible effort on her face she shattered the weapon with her mind, blasting the shards across the room. She began to laugh as she hovered above the ground, pulling the earth down around her as her wings beat, pulling her upwards as the dungeon collapsed.

Zelda's horse whinnied nervously as the ground shook around it. It backed away from the entrance, undecided whether it wanted to stay for its master or run to safety. Before it could decide the entrance exploded in a shower of rocks and dirt and a black creature burst forth, laughing with a voice that was booming and sinister. The horse ran for its life as the cave collapsed in on itself, burying all that once lay within under a hundred feet of rubble. The creature turned its gaze towards the south, something or someone important lay there. She would need to take care of that before she did anything else in this kingdom.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The eyes originally looked quite different. I'd given her the cat-eye slit like I'd done for Jasmine, but it just didn't look right. So I tried again with the glowing effect I used in the previous pic and I felt it looked so much better.

I'd also changed the background after finishing it. It really was too dark to make out the character well enough. Didn't want to go with anything too bright since that would upset the encroaching darkness vibe I was using. I think I found a nice balance but...time will tell.

Zelda's Curse 03
--------Story --------

Zelda's body felt extraordinarily heavy. The weight forced her to her knees as the boney protuberances on her shoulders began to take form as wings. She could feel the smooth blackness creeping over her skin. There was only one way she could think of to stop this corruption. She closed her eyes and delved deep inside herself, gathering the light magic within herself. She would need as much of it as possible if she was to use it to purge the evil from her body.

As she gathered her power the blackness reached her fingertips, turning her once perfect manacure into a set of sharp talons. From the air around her arms formed globules of liquid metal that coalesced into a coiled snake of gold around each wrist. Her tail waved as if by itself, the tip forming into a pointed spade as yet more liquid gold wrapped itself around her flesh. Her thighs and ankles also got the golden treatment, as if forming unbreakable shackles on her limbs.

The necklace itself began to change; the individual beads of gold began to liquify along with the gold surrounding the gem stones as they shone all the brighter. Her tiara was now fully recreated into long, sharp horns and set in the middle the once sky blue jewel had turned into a deep yellow gem stone. Behind her new horns her hair was changing to a fiery orange hue as if it were on fire. The necklace molded its liquid state into a form fitting collar around her throat, seamless and irremovable.

The blackness had covered her body and was creeping across her cheeks. It was now or never. She'd gathered up as much light magic as she could. She opened her eyes and sought to expel the evil from within her.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is always the fun bit. Drawing in the skin colour change effect. Something very satisfying about it, for some reason.
I like how :iconre-maker: drew this page, the sequence is better in places than my original Jasmine comission. Practise makes perfect, I suppose =)

I'm wondering if y'all are getting a sense of why I chose this particular colour scheme yet.

I went back and tweaked the background for this one after I'd finished it. It originally had a pale orange feel, but in hindsight it was kinda meh. I mean...this one still kinda is, but it's less meh.
