I always end up thinking about how every time Link has to go back those three days, all the help he gave people is undone. The monkey gets boiled, Lulu's babies are still captive to the Gerudo pirates, Darmani is still a tortured ghost, the Goron elder still ends up frozen, Cremia and Romani still lose their cows and get robbed, everyone's lives just stay ruined. It doesn't seem fair.

I love Majora's Mask artwork. ^_^

So much symbolism in here! And I love how you made Majora into some wicked malevolent looking being. I have a theory of him being an even more bigger enemy to Link sometime in the future...or maybe in the PAST!? 8O 

Man, Majora Mask is such a great game! So many theories in it. 8D

Again, love this piece! I'm faving it for realz, yo! :D

Legit! I like how much there was to discover! that wasn't central to the main plotline. the side quests that developed the state of the land and those who inhabit it! I hope ZeldaU learns from it when it comes to dealing with side quests ;) 
And thanks for the kind words ;)

Dang, this game was so...deep.  Much darker and with so much sorrow in the side quests than the other games.  Its sad how hated it is compared to Ocarina, this game was amazing.

I love the expression on the moon's face....it looks like it's being forced to commit a heinous crime it could of never imagined. The tears are a symbol of anguish and depression for the moon didn't wish to take so many lives like this. The facial expression is a symbol of struggling as if the moon is making one final attempt to try and stop what it is about to do.

so here I am trolling dA looking for some nice art for wallpapers, and I come across this.

I haven't signed into this account in years. but I felt I had to so I could tell you that this is the most beautiful Majora's Mask fan art I have ever seen. it literally moved me to tears. I'm sitting here, speechless.

this is brilliant. just brilliant. I cannot believe how amazing this piece is.

well done. seriously. I hope it's okay if I save this to my computer.

I adore the composition you have here. The constellations add a nice quality and the entirety of the center is in the shape of a tear, which is amazing.

I do have one question: Why did you use the forest medallion for the deku mask while the other two masks have their spiritual stones? It looks a bit off having one of the medallions while the other two are reflective of the spiritual stones (I realize those stones are based in those races as opposed to the emerald being based in the Kokiri as opposed to the deku, but still)...

you're the only one to have called me out on that lolol! good eye. there's no real reason to be honest, like you said Kokiri's emerald is reflective of the kokiri rather than the deku so it wasn't sitting well with me while painting it :) 
glad you dig the composition :) 

i've been plotting secretly, I should have a newer version of this up within the coming weeks though :O :) :)

Am I really the only one? Haha seriously? Oh wow. Yeah, although it bothers me, I feel like the Emerald wouldn't quite fit either, bah.
Thank you, it really is such a lovely piece!

Oh really!? Then I seriously look forward to seeing a newer version! :D

I like how the mask salesman is at the apex. Lol so appropriate. He's like the Illuminati of Majora's Mask. Btw they totally should have used your moon in the upcoming 3ds remake. It's a thousand times better than the constipated ogre head they have now.
