Princess Zelda I by UndyingNephalim Princess Zelda I by UndyingNephalim
After seeing Ag+'s ridiculously massive 25th Zelda anniversary poster that everyone got hard on and cried like a little baby over, I realized I had to up my ante. Fortunately he left a lovely youtube video exposing his inhuman secrets of painting.

My attempt to get better I suppose. A painting of Princess Zelda the First, whom will naturally be showing up in Hyrule: Total War. Her design is based largely on the Link to the Past incarnation of the iconic princess, and honestly that probably is my favorite design for her besides the OoT version. I find blue a far more regal color then hot pink I guess and am disappointed they've not followed up on that color scheme since. Then again there's about a bajillion things Zelda that have disappointed me recently but I'll not go off on that tangent or we'd be here for about a week. ^^;

There's a reason why only royal blue exists...

Is Ag+ on here? I wonder just how awesome it is.

Nice design! Zelda looks so much more regal here, and the staff is a nice touch. And I see the wide belt (girdle?) is still present. ^^

I don't think he has a DA account, otherwise im pretty sure every Zelda group on DA would have spammed that picture.

Ah yes, I'll refer to it as "golden metal scabbard holder royal belt of awesomeness"

Aww. Where is he then?

Any idea what I should do about the CHK crap that's probably all that remains of my ruined USB?

I'm not sure where he is, but if you type in Zelda 15th anniversary you'll be bombarded by about 20 links to his poster.

I'm not sure I've ever heard of a CHK file before... Have you tried looking in your USB drive on a different computer?

Dang, that is good! :O

I've used my USB on two different computers at my house, but I haven't tried it on the other with the CHKs in the USB. Someone else told me the same thing, so I just need to find him and get my USB back to check. Should I respond back here if I find another problem or try the search engines?

I'd probably find more info about CHK stuff online as I really am not proficient with sort of thing. I've spent a great deal of time killing viruses on my old computer, but I've never dealt with USB drives getting infected before. I have a feeling the drive might have rather been corrupted somehow rather then infected, I'm just not sure how a virus got into it but with computers anything is possible I suppose. ^^;

Hahah, well, it's good that he left the tutorial video. :P I can definitely see there's an interesting difference in the style of this one. Blue's indeed a far more regal color than hot pink. XD; Although purple is the common regal color... or something like that. Brain after just waking up doesn't function the best.

But woot, I like man! Great job :D

You really like adding those thick belts around the girls' waists, don't you?

The painting's pretty good. Crown's a bit overdone in my opinion, but everything else is pretty good. I really enjoy your weapon designs. They're really great...

There is a lot that I dislike about Nintendo's steps to making the recent LoZ stuff, though story's not one of them. I do enjoy the story ideas for all of 'em, even the Wind Waker/DS titles. The thing I don't like though is how damn "easy" the games are. I mean, good lord, where the hell did my miniboss that could take off 6-8 hearts in one blow go??? I'd sure enjoy it if things weren't so easy and were tons harder. If they botch that in the release of the 3ds remake of Ocarina of Time I'm going to send a letter of complaint straight to Miyamoto himself...*starts blowing steam out of ears*

Yes, yes indeed I do like to don my female characters in those. :nod: I suppose it's my signature thing to do. ^^;

lol...I can see that. It's like how my signature thing to do is add a wolverine-esque claw mark on something that's wounded in my drawings...
