Zelda by Matou31 Zelda by Matou31
A... not-so-quick painting (4h) in GIMP

MAKING OF : matou31.deviantart.com/art/Zel…

It's hard to keep posting those while I develop my video game... But when I'm sick of it, I come back to painting :D This is my take on the Zelda series! For once I didn't use a very specific reference. I first wanted to work on composition... and this came out.

Thanks a lot for your time|fav|comments|watch! I'm sorry I don't always have time to answer :'(. But I read everything!

For not being a specific reference, it sure looks like a scene from A Link to the Past.

I had to google what you say to understand (I don't speak Welsh), but, sure, I guess there was some Excalibur inspiration in this :p Thanks for stopping by :)

Caledfwlch was Exclibur's first given name and comes from Mabinogi, Zelda is heavily influenced by those stories, from the sword in stone to the story of 'Owain and the Lady of the Fountain' (or in other versions; lady of the lake) ;The great fairy fountain where she bestows you a gift, however Link and Navi are inspired by Peter Pan and Tinkerbell

I take it this is a twist on the iconic scene in A Link to the Past, where for the first time, the Master Sword can be seen; the moment when Link enters the Sacred Forest Meadow and sees a relic of bygone ages ensconced there; timeless, and ancient.
