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:

Her posture, and the shoulder armour doesn't help much on that sense i guess. And we´re used to the manga tiny college girl from the concepts, so it's kinda different, yes. Manish, i don't know, maybe a more imposing and fierce Zelda. But i see what you mean. Thanks anyway for the feedback.

Good Lord, all of these Legend of Zelda portraits are so incredible! Her skin is so smooth, yet carries its weight, and and the shading makes all the textures stand out. Absolutely beautiful job!

This is so realistic! 

EXCELLENT JOB! ;)

Also, this Princess Zelda almost looks like Cate Blanchett! That's pretty cool! =)

Omigosh... I actually skipped over this piece a couple of times because I thought it was a cosplay picture! This is so realistic!
