ATTENTION!! PLEASE DO NOT PUT THIS IN THE COSPLAY CATEGORY!! THIS IS A MANIPULATION, NOT COSPLAY!! Thank you!
I love the Zelda games and when I saw this new series of stock, I had to use it. This background makes me think of the games too. I'm really happy with this but if anyone sees anything that can be improved, please let me know. I thank everyone for the comments and faves!
I'm struck most by the almost melancholy nature surrounding Malon and the Hylian shield propped up against the tree. But beyond the gate I see a glimpse of hope reflected in the gleaming water and --I think??-- a fairy's glow around the keyhole.
Looks to me as if Link is gone on another adventure across the sea but he'll eventually return home to the forest and to Malon. In the meantime, she waits patiently for him in a vigil with Navi.
You did an astounding job putting such emotion into this picture and I hope you'll do more of these Zelda pictures. Malon looks so realistic and the shading definetely makes it seem a secret, personal place. The fairies also add mystery and fantasy to this and makes this piece all the more wonderful!
