Zelda - Tell Me The Story by Aerawen-Vanhouten Zelda - Tell Me The Story by Aerawen-Vanhouten
Thanks for 1000 pageviews everyone! ^__^
*PHEW* It's DONE! And it took WAY TOO EFFING LONG! All you painter pros have my undying respect!
Hope you all enjoy!!


SKetch: 0.03 Mechanical pencil on printer paper
CG: Photoshop CS2, Wacom Graphire tablet

EDIT:
This is the revised version. I tried to take y'alls advice, fixing the clouds and grass and this and that... Hope you like it better!
I actually did some research on clouds this time, and found some AWESOME cloud painting techniques from :iconaquasixio: *AquaSixio. Go check him out!!

I've been looking for who did this artwork forever. Remember seeing it when I was like 14 and was just blown away.  A true masterpiece. +fav

Yeah Zelda looks better blond. The brown hair from TP just looks really bad for some reason. >.>

Just thought I'd give you a heads up about the editing and reposting of your image

Just to clarify, it wasn't myself who did it, but I just thought you'd like to be informed since no source or any mention/link of your original work was posted along side it.
