A Tale of Midna ~ (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)

Once upon a time, in a world not much unlike our own, was a Princess who tried to save her people...

About the Piece:

I'd meant to finish this piece for ages and never got around to it but here it finally is! :dummy: A bit different from the Tingle predecessor, this storybook-inspired piece for Midna features the Mirror of Twilight instead of a scene since I couldn't really make one work well in her odd imp shape. :P The thumbnail of this looks absolutely terrible but I'm hopeful you can all see the details a bit better in a fuller size. :nod: Instead of the Ocarina on Tingle's piece, this one features the TP-styled heart containers - something I had to draw completely from scratch using terrible references and it was an absolute pain. IDRC if they're wrong somehow, I just wanted to be done with them! :cries: But I finished them eventually. I toyed with the coloring of this piece for a very long time and was incredibly indecisive even immediately before uploading it, but I think I prefer this scheme over any others I tried. ;) Midna has some more colors to work with than Tingle but just barely. I'm fairly pleased with how this all turned out in the end, though, and I hope you fellow Midna/LOZ fans enjoy it, too! :D

This is awesome!
I absolutely love how you used the mirror of twilight pattern in Midna's silhouette. The colors are perfect! They remind me of the reds and greens we see throughout the twilight in the game. The shading looks great, it's really cool how the designs look like they're glowing. And those heart pieces. Oh my gosh. You drew those?! They're amazing! 
Everything about this piece is perfect! You got everything right! :)
