This is an Illustration I had available as a print for Anime Next 09!

My one 3-person team picture, why? Because I'm not a particular fan of Zelda... /snorts.
No, in all realness I didn't want to throw her in AS WELL AS Shiek. So I opted for the cooler of the two.
Ahh... this was great to draw since I haven't drawn any real Zelda fanart recently... and I absolutely LOVE drawing these characters. Oh Ganon... ♥

This is part of a nine-part series of the Brawl fighters, instead of cramming them onto one illustration:
[They will be uploaded sparsly!]
1. Mario Team • 2. Pokemon Team
3. Misfit Team • 4. Fox Team
5. Kirby Team • 6. Pikmin Team
7. DK Team • 8. Zelda Team
9. Pit Team

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

Sheik looks like she's about to stab needles into Ganondorf's face. :D

For reasons unknown [I think so that there wasn't going to be TWO Links in this illustration? I cannot question my thoughts since it was drawn almost two years ago...] he is located in THIS Brawl illustration! XD

I know about the triforce, but you should've had Toon Link in there! He's part if the Zelda series too!

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hehe, I agree. But as I laid out the plans for all of my brawl drawings [check the gallery] I had everyone in groups of "4-characters per illustration". And the Zelda picture had Link, Zelda, Shiek, and Gannon... so I needed to put Toon Link in with someone - that's why he ended out with the Fire Emblem/Kid Icarus guys... hehe.
Unfortunately as I was inking this, Zelda just didn't fit... so she didnt end up on the final version, oh well! ^^

I love Link's legs. The angle, the pose, it just looks very dynamic.

And of course I love what you did with Sheik. She looks wonderful!

Not really - he was one of the more easier characters to draw/color!
None of them were ever really "hard" to render - my original characters have more detail than the Smash Bros characters do... hehe...

Nice.
So ehhh... riddle me this... how fast can you put down flats? It takes me for freeaking evuuuuuur. T_T
Reply
:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
guhhh... I hate that part tooooo!
It really determines how complex and how many characters there are... and especially the CANAVS SIDE [most of my illustrations are worked at 5100x7200 pixels...] but yeah, a character with only a couple of colors and not very detailled outfit can take like 30 minutes or so. A more complex usually will take an hour... sad part is that the SHADING part is the fastest! Hahahaha~ Same with you?
Reply
:iconzaxzero:
ZaxZero Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Yeah! EXACTLY THE SAME... just multiply that 1 hour or 30 minutes by 6. XD
I wish I could make a flatting program that magically fills in certain sections like magic.

By the time you're done with it ... its like HOLY CRAP I LOVE SHADING AND HIGHLIGHTS, I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Well, hearing that even professionals such as yourself have the same problem helps. I'm going to finish up my latest project on that encouragement!

This actually works quite well as a three character illustration, what with the whole Triforce thing and whatnot.
As usual you convey the motion really well. I especially like what you've got going on with Sheik. Very cool. 8D
