Remembering the Twilight by NightsongWS Remembering the Twilight by NightsongWS
This was a test of my texturing ingenuity, but here are my firest preliminary images of the so mockling labeled "Princess of Twilight". Once I get a bit more time to devote to them, I'll go back and make some corrections to her costume and start in on constructing those of her companions in 3D, too. Not a true twilight princess, Princess Zelda instead ruled over the kingdom of Hyrule during the time that the self-proclaimed "King of Twilight" invaded with his shadowy forces.

These two pictures were meant to depict the time after Hyrule was freed of the Twili and the true power behind the invasion, Ganondorf, was dispatched once and for all. (Or so we think... he always seems to get resurrected again. Darn those immortal Triforce bits.) In this one, Zelda spends a moment of quiet reflection as she watches the sun set, remembering the days when she hoped and fought for Hyrule. Perhaps also remembering and wondering how those she fought with fare, as well, since she may never see either of them again.

All clothing textures I made myself, and the hair is painted. Thanks for the encouraging comments, folks. :D

Great job! awesome textures.
one word of advice-
Try to make the eyelids a little more relaxed and the lips a little smaller

I love this one as much as your other pic of Zelda. The expression is odd...is she happy? She kinda looks worried though...

Honestly, I think the art is amazing. I think it looks like something that Nintendo tried to get for years. I love it. But, I dont like Zelda's Facial Expression.
Other than that, Beautifully drawn, and Breathtaking details.

I personally find her facial expression quite bizarre XD

am I the only one?

Before I zoomed in and after I read the description I though she would be more solemn about looking over the past :P

her position on the ledge there reminds me of Children of Dune (the movie, not the book) when Alia stands on her little edge there to talk to her people, hehe

looks great tho! ^^

I agree, I think in the next pict I need to make a distinctly more Zelda face. The one here looks so... I dunno, regularly human. Not ethereal enough for someone who bears the Triforce of Wisdom, at least as portrayed in the Zelda games.

Thank you for the feedback! :D

Ohmigawsh. This is the BEST Zelda picture I've ever seen. It's just SO realistic, it has the actual real-life touch to it. I have to say that I love the way you had her hold rest on the bow and the detail on the dress! Now that is just too amazing to describe in words. You have a very good hand so don't let it die out on you. This is just shockingly wonderful. :3 :dance: :heart:

Thank you for the wonderful support and feedback! Making things using 3D models makes it a bit easier to make things lifelike, but it was still a challenge to put something as complex as this together. Seeing that folks actually enjoy it makes it all worth it, though. :hug: After all, isn't that what fanart is for, to help folks love our favorite movies and games as much as we do? :D
