Gerudo Sword Dancer by Nephtis Gerudo Sword Dancer by Nephtis
I've been playing Zelda again - and I happen to like the Gerudo tribe.
I know in 'Ocarina of Time', the guards wear the violett costumes and the scimitar fighters wear read, but I liked those colors better.

These Swords should become an item in a future Zelda game called the Gerudo Blades.

I'm writing a fanfic and my character looks EXACTLY like this! :D may I have your permission to use this as a book cover?

Thank you for asking first, but I am sorry, no.

I don't want any of my pictures used & uploaded in places where I have no personal control over it. Nor associated with a fanfic of which I don't know anything.

This goes especially for an old piece like this which has a ton of mistakes and no longer represents my current skill level - and that I only keep online for sentimental reasons.

Why don't you draw your own cover?

This is lovely. It perfectly captures the beauty and deadliness that the Gerudos are so famous for, and that pose is spot on. The colors and lighting are also wonderful.

Well done, very nice work you have, you got the look of the Gerudo theif down well. Who doesn't like 'em, eh? Heh heh!

Anyhow, this is very good, very clean and solid looking. Something minor about her hands doesn't sit well with me- the fingers are very tightly packed, and the left hand is at a funny angle compared to the sword handle, it should be a bit more parallel, see what I mean? Also, the Gerudo kind of go for that very slim figure look, though this one in particular seems to have a thicker than normal neck. Very minor details, however, are well compensated for by the piece's merits. Your shading is beautiful, especially on the skin and the creases in the pants. The hair in particular is also fantastic, and the anatomy, especially the feet, is excellent. Since I'm in a very Zelda mood, I'm totally faving this.

On another note, can I guess you're excited about the release of Twilight Princess closing in? I know I am. C:

You bet I am exited.... I really love the Zelda series, and I don't mind playing the games several times but a new one? Even better!

Thanks for your comment. And you're right about the angle between hand and left sword. Now that you mention it I notice. How come you never spot something like that while - or even better before - you're inking?
*shakes head angrily*
But I'm glad you liked the drawing anyway.

Indeed, a new Zelda is always an event to look forward to!

Of course not, it's never as obvious as it should be half way through. You really need to keep an eye out for those little things by focusing on areas that could potentially go wrong. And it is a very fine drawing.
