Legend of Zelda: Zelda Concept



Of all three pieces I've done so far, Zelda probably took the longest. Spent all day on her and most of the night. The truth is, finding a design that really captured Zelda was hard, mainly because I don't draw a lot of beautiful, graceful, and elegant characters. Getting the basic design of her dress alone was a challenge that took numerous tries.

I also cheated the most on this one, I used the Lovely Alexis Bledal as a model, and used numerous background images to create the scenery. The little drape or whatever you wanna call it that dangles in front of her dress was actually the same one on the Twilight princess Zelda Model, I merely cannibalized it for this piece.

I also cut corners and got a little sloppy with this one, the lighting isn't quite right, and the picture doesn't come together quite as well as the other two, but overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I think the design of the character is off to a solid start, I just need to refine my technique.

Overall, this has been the most challenging of all the pieces so far. There was a lot of work outside my comfort zone in terms of practice and design, but it was a good learning experience. I may revisit Zelda later to try some more design, but I will probably give her a rest for a little while.
