Princess Ruto.. again. :)
She's one of my favorite characters from the Zelda games.
Drawn in Pencil and ink and then colored entirely in Adobe Photoshop CS.
Enjoy!

How come you haven't posted this on Zelda Legends... I'm sure ppl over there will be very happy to see some of your artwork popping up!
Anyhoo, I love it! I agree with The-DCG the fins look very flimsy - in a good way though.

This is very, very nice. Your coloring job on Ruto was fantastic! Was it done with a lot of gradients? It kinda looks that way- especially on the right hand- some more care could have been taken there, perhaps. My only other caveat, is that as beautiful as the filmy fins look, I don't see how they could be very useful propelling her through the water... But that's really just picking nits. A great homage to a character who gets little love. Way to go!

Oh, nice! It's been a while since I've seen any Ruto artwork around ;p Anyway, I love this idea for a pose; she looks like a real beauty queen, and GREAT job on the swimming posture :nod: Her coloring is gorgeous and I love the veil-like appearance of her fins-- just like a betta fish :love: My only quibble is that the background detracts from her appearance-- perhaps some more harmonious colors, and better seaweed (because the plants look like they were just airbrushed on).

It's a fine piece, though, I completely understand why it's the featured piece :XD:

:wow: That's really good! I love the coloring and lighting.
Ruto isn't exactly one of my favorite characters, but you did an excellent job. :nod:

I have to agree, Ruto's always been one of my fave characters too, and this is just brilliant, I love what you've done with her fins :nod:
