Majora's Return by ErikShoemaker Majora's Return by ErikShoemaker
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!

I love the style of Majora's mask and Link and how the mask stands out with its bright colors. However, it does not seem Link stands out, he just sort of fades away into the background. I also like the sky and it's sort of realistic style. The moon looks a bit weird compared to one in Legend of Zelda, especially with the moon having a fat, crooked nose and a wider mouth, but I like the eyes. There's lightning coming from the moon which kind of annoys me, since I do not think the moon shoots lightning, although I might be wrong since I've never played Majora's Mask.

Overall, it's pretty good, especially with it's sort of realistic style and a sort of depiction showing how important it is for Link to continue his quest.
What do you think?

The shading and light are great, with multiple sources of light the shadowing is realistic. The color choice is subtle yet vibrant and beautiful; which makes you explore the fantastic details. The clouds and stone are done particularly well. this an improvement on some of your other pieces. You should be proud.
Everything is well done and flows. . . . except for the moon. It's out of place. You would have to redo this piece to fit the moon or replace it. It just doesn't fit with the flow of the awesomeness of the rest of the scene. Overall I love this piece of art my eyes just choose to ignore the moon.

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?"

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.

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!

actually I foresaw that kind of critique about the double focal and I got it lol. I guess that was me knowing something's wrong with the compo :XD: I often have this problem with landscape works because I really want to build a beautiful landscape at first, but afterwards I realize it's not interesting enough on it's own haha.
