The Balance of Hyrule by GoblinQueeen The Balance of Hyrule by GoblinQueeen
Almost didn't make it, but here it is :) It's my third dev-versary today and just like last year, from September 6th through October 4th, you had the chance to vote on what you wanted to see for this piece. It was close...really close almost the whole way through, but when the cards were down, the Legend of Zelda video game series was the winner. Instead of choosing a character, you opted to have me surprise you, so...anyone surprised? Prob'ly not, but hey, I gave it a shot ;)

So who are these guys? My own versions of Din, Farore, and Nayru, the three goddesses who created Hyrule and its people, as the story goes, as well as the Triforce and its facets, Power, Courage, and Wisdom respectively. The color schemes and elements (fire, air, and water) were already set down by the game lore and I tried to work in some influences of the characters associated with with the particular part of the Triforce in question (ie Ganon, Link, and Zelda). I also tried to work a few influences from the characters of the same name in the Oracle of Ages/Seasons series, since while not the goddesses themselves, they have a kind of connection.

In anycase, this one is for you guys and hope you enjoy. Thanks so very much for another great year, I know I wouldn't be where I am right now without you and even if I am putting in a lot of overtime, I'm having a ball, so thanks from the bottom of my heart. I can't name everyone who has made a difference unless you want to sit here reading forever, but seriously, just being here and giving me someplace to put these bizarre pictures that come out of my head has made the world of difference to me. You guys are the best :hug:

(and yes, I am working on getting through the backlog of messages in my box and yes, I do have witnesses to that fact, so if I haven't gotten to you yet, sit tight and I will as soon as I can. I haven't forgotten about any of you out there even if I may be a little quieter that I like to be ;) )

Medium: Brown drafting lead on vellum, painting done in Photoshop and Painter.

The characters of Din, Farore, and Nayru are copyright Nintendo.

Last year, January 3rd, I was getting a WoW tattoo done. That same day, I was watching someone get a Zelda tattoo done on their back. I just realized this is the tattoo he was getting done. BEAUTIFUL artwork, and it looked great on his back. It was, I believe, his third trip there for coloring. I just found this amusing that I found it on DA. Makes me smile. :D
