Zelda 25th Anniversary by LiKovacs Zelda 25th Anniversary by LiKovacs
**Please NOTE
The Circle image is the actual Painted Piece. The 3 Images under the Mandala with the black frame are just closeups that I compiled in photoshop of the 3 Goddesses from the actual painting itself to show detail.
**


My Zelda 25th Anniversary Tribute! This was my mandala project that I did in my color and design class. I wanted to do something that I would enjoy working on and that I would keep for myself. I lost about 2 nights of sleep on it.

I always wanted to do something with the 3 Goddesses, and originally I wanted to paint something digitally...but this turned out better. Painted using an Art Nouveau style. I didn't use any references, I just kinda winged the bodies and the fabric while sitting in class. I wanted each Goddess to have different facial features as well as their hair.

I added closeups of the goddesses in this upload.

Total hours - 25+
Medium - Gouache
Size - 10x10 painting. Illustration board is 15x20 with a black matte.

-----

Sorry for the watermarks.
:bulletyellow: I am offering the Mandala (circle) part as a High Quality Professional Print on an 11x17 heavy weight Epson Matte paper for $35. The Mandala on the print would be 10x10.
Black frame mat board not included.

Yeah, I could totally see this being in one of the games. It is reminiscent of the throne room in Hyrule Castle from Twilight Princess.

This is absolutely stunning. I'd love to have something like this in my apartment. It's always nice to make something that you'll end up keeping and loving. I really like the cloud details that go around it and the border. Almost reminds me of Rohan/something Celtic/Gaelic almost. Really neat!

This is one of the most beautiful tributes to the goddesses I have ever seen!
And, you know, I've always pegged Din to have red hair instead of brown.. I really don't know why.. I guess because of the colors.
