This portrait was interesting, and i learned a lot from it. In general i'm trying to exercise different lightning settings in all portraits, and on zelda i went for the theme of light. Zelda represents the wisdom, and of course light, the essence that bans all evil. So i tried to do something with a more exposed enviroment, rays of light shining into her, depicting her like some elevated entity.
One of the most interesting elements in this fairy tale-epic- fantasy journey that is every zelda game, is that female characters are not always submissive, specially zelda. So she is wise, but strong too so i made a posture that could express that subtle fierce attitude, looking up. Some suggestions of palace interiors at the back and wrapped it up. Hope you like it!
