The frog scene was too cute, I had to draw it. :d

Took me a good while to figure out how to shade her hair. My usual strategy for shading hair doesn't work too well for situations like this with long streams of hair flowing in direct light. For some time I've been doing experiments to try to find something that looks cohesive with what I usually do but also better handles these scenarios, and I think I finally might be onto something. For a simple as it might look, the process to get there sure was not, and it was a big reason this piece took about a month longer to come out.

Has everyone finished Zelda yet? :>

Enjoy! ❤❤❤

Well, I will admit she is cute
But i'm not so sure that is what made you draw this...

When people started playing through BOTW that scene became a bit of a meme because of the brief butt shots it had despite being a rather silly scene.

It's no secret I like the mix of cuteness and sexiness, and I found this idea particularly adorable due to her earnestness, so I was naturally interested in doing my take on it. That, plus Frog Fractions 2 was being discovered at that time, and I saw an opportunity to do a silly reference to it. :p

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I gather you're implying (and I've seen other comments that seem of the same mind) I did it just for the sexiness aspect. But then, why would I not choose a million other more blatantly sexy setups, or draw her in one of her other more skimpy costumes? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And anyways, if I wanted sexy Zelda art I could just look up on danbooru and find tons of it.
