Twilight Princess by BogusRed Twilight Princess by BogusRed
So yesterday was Drawing Day! I spent most of the day working on this drawing of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This is my first TP fanart.

There are a few things that could be better. Mainly I could have worked some more layers of depth into the background like I did with my last illustration. But I was ready to be done with this. I also think I could have thought more about the composition earlier on. But truthfully, I think this came out very well compared to my past fanarts. I thought more about the composition than I usually do. But not as much as I would like to.

In case you're wondering, the hooded figure is princess Zelda in Twilight Princess. I didn't use reference for her so she doesn't look exactly as she does in the game. But I had a specific image in my mind for how I wanted her to look and I didn't want to be held down by reference.

This was drawn and painted 98% in Corel Painter on a Tablet PC laptop. The rest was some touchup work in PhotoShop. 8-10 hours of work.

All critique welcome here. I know this is a lame title for the artwork so if you have a suggestion for a better name, I'm open.

I love the sweeping brush strokes you used for the background, they have a nice sense of motion that really flows well with Link. :3
And I really like how Zelda works with the background. She looks great, especially that cloak. (No personal bias of course...^.~)
Hmmm...the one thing that could be better about this is how Link works with the piece. I see the differentiation between light and dark, but at the same time he doesn't quite meld with the rest of the piece as much as he could.
Aside from that, he looks great. His hair is really snazzy, and I love the way his tunic looks.
Overall, very nice piece.

Thanks for the comments bladesfire. I can see what you mean about him not melding with the rest of the background. Maybe I'll take another pass and slap some darker colors on him.

Very nice, the background is well drawn. I like how you made the side where light is shining on Zelda lighter.
