Minuet of forest by evelmiina Minuet of forest by evelmiina
Ahhhhffgggh creative title as ever...

This is my card/b-day pictah for ~dodongo-fin, she gave me some options for what she'd like, and Wind Waker was one of those. I know she likes Makar a lot, and well, she asked for something cute though, but I hope this'll do.

Haven't used markers in a while, but it turned out okay.

edit October 13th:
Woah, DD!

But since people keep asking it, and I sure hope you guys do read artist comments;
-this is 100% traditional, I DIDN'T use computer programs.
-I used markers, brand is copic/Promarker
-yes, series is Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and characters are Link, Makar and Fado.

umm, thanks *___*;;

Minuet of forest by *nayruchan is delightful and whimsical. While this gallery has a numerous amount of gems to look at, and some more defined and polished, this piece is a joy in its color palette, style and subject matter. Get lost in the colors and the whimsy and fall in love with this piece! ( Featured by aunjuli )

Awwww! Aw aw awwww!! Haha I adore this! You hit a soft spot here, (which is mostly because of Makar :XD: ) but really, this is fantastic! You gotta teach me how to make traditional pieces like this.... :nod:

it's odd that people like this so xD because I remember the original was very tiny, and I was in a hurry while drawing this, but markers (copic markers for example) and marker paper usually do the trick, they blend just right on right paper.

I don't know why I haven't faved this until now, but this has got to be one of my favourite Zelda fanarts. It looks so cosy, and I love how you've given the characters your own touch, and not just drawn them exactly as they look in the game.
Plus I'm a fan of traditional media, so markers is a total win in my book!

thanks! I guess best pieces are born without really trying, I'm surprised this got DD'd in first place because I felt like this was something I made without putting too much thought to it :---D maybe that's the secret of cozy look hehe

for whatever the reason this picture makes me want to dance to fiddle music, either that or go back on my GameCube and beat Windwaker for the fifteenth time, (my current goal is getting all the sculptures, witch is herder than it looks, I keep forgetting to take pictures of the bosses)

Hi!!! :D

I commented on your work earlier asking if I could use your illustration as a basis for my animation.
Although you haven't expressed your opinion, I went ahead and started it anyway.

Here's my progress [link]

I hope you like how it looks so far. :)

Aah I'm sorry I didn't respond earlier...Umm it's all okay, I was bit busy yesterday but I haven't skipped you comment so you shouldn't have worried.
Anyway, I don't mind using my pictures if it's all for non-profit use and some credit for the picture would be nice :)
