Zelda by d-torres Zelda by d-torres
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!

Make sure to check my blog for the step by step process:

Thanks! I tried to do a calm but resolute personality. Eowyn has a lot of that too.
