Yes! Finally completed after over two months of practice and unmotivation! This is pretty much a scaled down version of my new Youtube/Twitter header. Two of my characters, Mat and Jenna, dressed as Breath of the Wild's Link and Zelda. This was a big challenge for me cause of a lack of refs for the outfits, loads of details and layers to put in, plus I drew my characters with my tablet instead of my other lineart method (which tbh takes just as long if not longer), then finding a proper location within the game to use as the setting and recreate it as best as I could, and even try to give it a mix of my style with the concept art's. Originally I was going to have them at the edge of a cliff AND include Wolf Link, but I just wanted this done.

Maybe later on if I get a chance to, I'll try and include Wolf Link like I wanted to truly complete this masterpiece. But for now, get over to my channel. Like, comment, subscribe!

I dunno but after I finished drawing the characters, I got ideas for their ideal armors/weapons thanks to being too goddamn addicted to the game. MIGHT do it at some time if I have free time and another burst of motivation.... and better use of my tablet.

Apparently listening to Dearly Beloved really sets the mood as well for this. Also, Jenna's fiddling with the Sheikah Slate...... I think she's trying to find a game on it lol

FirielThis is nice. :) I like the poses and the swaying grass and the soft evening light.

FirielAh, fair enough. :) Sun on the cusp of the world, it was 50/50. ;)

matthespeedstarYeah I felt it'd be the perfect setting..... though I f'd up one important thing I was supposed to add. The front ruins that Mat's on, there's supposed to be some cracks in them. I'll need to fix that.

FirielBeing able to correct things on a finished work seems like a definite plus to working in digital. :p I like the moss growing on those front ruins, that's a nice touch. :) Are you going to post it again when you've finished the texturing?

matthespeedstarIf I get around to it, I'll probably just update it rather than repost it.

.... now if only I got as many views on my videos as I did here lol

FirielOk, cool. :)
...A lot of those are probably repeats by folks coming back for another look, do you know if your vids are counting per look or for unique IPs?
Also, what kind of videos have you been making?

matthespeedstarI dunno, Youtube's tracking isn't all that good, I don't even have 150 subs even though it says I have over 160.

I'm a more gimmick-less LPer pretty much, I can only play on Nintendo consoles since it's all I have, and I tend to oppose a lot of viewpoints on games based on my own thoughts and experiences with my games, hence why I came up with my second alias The Gaming Rebel.
