Tetra's Big Epic Rescue by UndyingNephalim Tetra's Big Epic Rescue by UndyingNephalim

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.

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!!

"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.

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.

Some do, but those are few and far between. Which is a shame, because if everyone lived for others, we'd have a happier world. But then again, we would have a world full of robots trying to make eachother happy. It's one of those unanswerable questions...

Even those living for others do this for self-satisfaction. Everyone wants to make life easier for themselves. Everyone seeks new ways to make it easier. Some people work for it, some steal for it, some kill for it. It is human nature. 

And some people work together and want to live for others to achieve their goals indirectly.

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…

I COULD make a generic comment about how this is awesome and the extra time and effort shows (and dat beard, tho), so I think I will. That was awesome. The ending with Medli and Komali cracked me up.

I will say this though - you have no idea how much I appreciate that you didn't have Link cut through the lock with his sword. A stunt like that looks like it would do a real number to the blade, and breaking it with the pommel still looks awesome while not being overtly unrealistic.

Haha, using a sword like Link did to break the lock is actually called Half-Swording. It's a real technique knights often had to use to deal with armor: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwuQPf…

Isn't it also a reference to always finding keys in order to unlock doors in the classic Zelda games?

I remember a bit about half-swording. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to see someone doing medieval fantasy that actually has done the research and knows what they're trying to depict.
Of course, now everyone's gonna be like "Link used his sword wrong!" and you'll have to spend another billion years trying to explain he isn't wearing a cors-I mean using his sword correctly :)
Reply
:iconundyingnephalim:
Haha, yeah I do try and keep things grounded in my work. I'm not really a fan of over the top swordplay or weaponry unless it's completely intentionally trying to be ridiculously silly on purpose like a Tarantino movie. Of course I do all that realism checking and then shortly after I blow realism out the window and have Tetra gunslinging multiple shots with single shot pistols. ^^;

EDIT: Why the heck have I started opening my comments with Haha lately? :lol:

That was very good! The tentacled monster was better than nintendos poor excuse for one in Skyward Sword and the beard on Link looks awesome. Not only that but the romance scene honestly caught me off guard since Nintendo never paired the two (since I'm assuming Tetra is Zelda?). But then I remember you're not Nintendo XD. Great work! I can't wait to see more.
