Edit: Touched up the contrast a bit, particularly on the moon and the clouds around it.

How about returning to Termina as adult Link in a sequel to 'The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask'? I don't own a Switch yet but I might consider buying one. 8-)

I don't even know what came over me to create Zelda fanart again lol. It's been almost ten years since I finished my fanart for Ocarina of Time. Time flies, it's scary!

Very cool, but what would make the sequel different from it's predecessor? Don't get me wrong, I'd be cool with a sequel to that game and all but only if it was all different from it, like perhaps how A Link Between Worlds was treated towards A Link To The Past for example.

To be honest, I haven't thought much about it. :lol: I just thought the game was ahead of its time back when it was released on the N64 and wasn't really much appreciated. Also, I'd like to see it with some new and and improved graphics. 8-) Perhaps a remaster would be enough for me lol.

"I once vowed that I shall consume this land. Seven years it has been, and I have recuperated my power. Now, no matter what manner of weaponry you have, you are bereft of your transformative masks, and are therefore powerless to stop me.
You may partake in attempting to stop me; admittedly, it would be an amusing game for us both, but you would only be succeeding in delaying your inevitable death. So, do you want to play... Link?"

Inspiring! I might include a quote like this in an animation if I ever manage to make one :D

I would love to see a Zeldagame return to Termina with an Adult Link on the switch. I reckon they could pull it off with either the modified Havoks engine they did with Breath of the Wild or even the UE4 engine!
I think if theres ever one music track i won't forget from the Zelda universe it would be Clock town day one.

Weee so glad to see this one finished. :) (yes I could've done a long time ago huh, sorry it took so long!)
As I'd said previously... once again amazing artwork. :D Love specially how you created the effect of the light glow by the house and how unique everything looks. :)

thanks again for the advice man! :) I changed up the clouds a bit more to make them fit the scene and I'm happy that I did. The double focal is still annoying me a bit, but can't get everything right I guess lol. Glad you like it Rogerito!

Hehe I'm pretty sure you're kind of the only one who's annoyed by that. :P
But yeah I saw the clouds adjustment in the animation, such attention to detail... You're welcome Dr. Zapa!
