I wanted to do something more adventuous and uplifting than what's currently going on in the game. I pulled out everything in my arsenal to make this happen, everything I've learned is showcased here. I hope you all enjoy this cinematic, I put so much heart into it.

I am a huuuuuuugggee Telink fan therefore i loved the one kissing scene at the end so...i was wondering if i was able to draw out that kissing scene w/Medli komali Tetra and Link... (with your permission of course) and credit you for the idea?

So I'm curious, now; is that a scene from the game or did you just do this for the sake of making something awesome? Either way, great work!!

It's a scene from the game itself, but I did it for the sake of making something awesome.

"That must be how Hylians feed" nearly spat my drink at the screen XD

I had to rememer that this is a game engine as I was looking at it a lot of the animation stuff from a film point of view.  And I ws going to say something about the purple monster looking a bit like that chameleon lizard from Monsters Inc and I thought the pistols Tetra was dual wielding needed to be reloaded after every shot and but then I read the other comments :P On the "half-swording" thing the only thing I have to say is I would have held the top of the hilt as I'm a coward like that ;) I suppose if you're wearing thick gloves it's not such a big deal. The cinematics were great, the music was great, the textures were pretty damn good and I love how Tetra's hair and cloak flapped around in the wind.  Can see how much heart you put into it, I hope you're proud of it as you should be :D

Originally I was going to have Tetra just constantly drawing new pistols after every shot, but I felt that showing her do that broke up the pacing of the scene. In reality she has six pistols that she carries around and there will probably be an earlier point in the game where the player is made aware of that.

I try not to get too proud of things, I feel like ego is the biggest monster when it comes to creating something liked by other people. I am very happy and satisfied with how it turned out though and it brings me great joy seeing how positively received this was compared to a lot of my other Zelda related content.

Ego can be a monster I agree, but from my observation of you, you're the type that seems drivn by self-improvement.  I have a feeling if I'd nitpicked as much as I was going to, you would have done your best on the next one to fix those even after explaining to me the limiations of the game engine and why you can't whatever I nitpicked, so I think you can afford at least a little bit of pride in a job well done :) Yeh you're right, drawing multiple guns would have changed the pacing a bit, think you can be forgiven the artistic license here to keep it fast paced and furious ;)

Ahh the joys and perils of fandoms eh.

I am...I just...I can't...
THEY KISSED.
ENOUGH SAID.
I'm showing this to all my Zelda-bros just because TETRA AND LINK FINALLY FREAKING KISSED.

...is that why you did that? Cause you knew everyone wanted it? DID YOU PLAAAAAN THIS?????
xD Great animation; Tetra's overcoat is beautiful, Tetra is beautiful, Link's beard is beautiful and Tentalus is very not-beautiful.

Holy crap, that was awesome. Mad props for making Tentalus not look like a Monsters Inc character. :b The ending had me with a goofy grin on my face the whole time. Tetra's reaction is one of my favorite emotional responses after a character goes through something intense and life-threatening. :D

Haha I'm so glad you enjoyed it, on your birthday too.

Though, I did give Tentalus some hints of a Monsters Inc character, just a cooler one: img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
