The Legend of Zelda by kowan The Legend of Zelda by kowan
*IMPORTANT PLEASE READ*
This artwork of mine was made to look like the original cover of the Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess. This was a project for my class and the objective was to traditionally paint an original or existing artwork, in this case i chose the artwork of Legend of Zelda. As you can see [link] , if you just READ this description FIRST before judging the artwork, i changed a few things from the original.

I was happy with my painting and just decided to share it with everyone else here on DA. So please read the description first before saying unnecessary things. Thank you very much.

I finally uploaded it! HAHA

Phew! It was very hard to scan this thing! It was too big for the scanner and so i had to scan parts of it and later put them together in photoshop(which was HARD).

Anyway i edited some parts of it since the original had some minor problems.

OH AND THIS IS GREATLY REFERENCED FROM THIS->[link]
with some minor changes.


TOOLS:
> .5 Mech. Pen
> Prang Watercolors

The Legend of Zelda©Nintendo/Shigeru Miyamoto

UPDATE!
I've read some comments asking if i can make this artwork available as print. Unfortunately i don't think DA allow Fan arts to be available as prints, only original works.

When I first saw the original, there were a ton of things that I missed. It took a while for me to notice Zant's mask in the BG, and even longer to notice Zelda and Midna. Your piece brings them out so that they're more visible; also, this is very colorful. Great job recreating-and putting a twist on-this artwork!

Your minor changes made the peice look... better.... than the original. I am completely amazed! The sword above Link's head makes him seem more heroic and how you painted his face made him look older (in an EXCELLENT way of course).  I think I am more amazed by the fact that you did this in WATERCOLOR!!!! ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!
