Zelda by Arbuthnaut
Zelda by Arbuthnaut


This is the 3rd piece I have done in paint, with the first 2 being of Auron from Final Fantasy 10. In the first, I did a close up or Auron, and then a half-body shot for the second. This time I wanted to do a female character, and so I chose Zelda.

I also wanted to do something that presented a bit more of a challenge in the detail department, which I liked with the design on her dress.

But if there is anything I hate to do, it is the fine details, so this is about as fine-tuned as you'll see out of me.

It was done in Microsoft Paint, with a mouse. And of course, since this was originally .bmp, when I converted it to .jpg, there was some blurring of colors, but the original is all solid.

I really like how the pattern on the dress came out, especially the blending of the blue-ish colors. Again my biggest disappointment is the hands, but they are better than my previous attempts. I guess the one on the left(her right) came out alright. There was originally more detail and designs near the bottom of the dress, but when it was all colored, I thought it looked like crap, so I dumped it.

As for upcoming pictures, I am nearly done with Ada Wong from Resident Evil 4, and am working on one of Rude and Reno from FF7. I hope to do ones for Cloud and Vincent, and have already done a good face for Sephiroth. After that, I am thinking something a bit more dark, either somethings from Diablo 2, Bloodrayne, or Devil May Cry.

Please leave a comment if you liked it, and check out my Aurons if you desire.

XiakeyraPeople who can draw so well with a mouse are amazing.
I love all the details of her dress. I can't find anything wrong with her hands.

EndlessAsgardAWSOME ZELDA! And come on, details are your friend, they're what make this one good among other things. The hands aren't so bad, ms pain is just hard to manipulate unlike a pncil. Speaking of which, if you can do this on a computer I think it likely you draw well too. You need a scanner. I for one would love to see your hand drawn work, i'm betting its even cooler than this.
