Princess in the North by evelmiina Princess in the North by evelmiina
I was just doodling but suddenly couldn't resist adding some extra fancy! Too bad it's not so long since I made Skyward Sword Zelda set but, perhaps I doodle some other characters in similar manner too.

Photoshop CS5 with some touches from InDesign & Illustrator

Uu~ I can imagine that sword/wand being like Wind Wakers cousin or something. It probably slashes with wind when you hit with it or at least makes strong gusts~ xD

So cool~

That's neat idea! I took inspiration from wind waker's design but didn't put much thought to it. Wind sword would be wicked awesome.

If they ever make a game where you play as Zelda, I hope they do a design along these lines. She looks ready for anything.

Such a cool spin on the design. You do such a great job keeping the elements that obviously make it zelda, but giving it a unique look that has never been seen before. This style is interesting too, it has a nice energy to it.

Thanks! It's funny how I've seen some warrior/zombie/etc Zelda re-designs before, but all of them were so eager to ditch her pink dress :'D personally I find it interesting to start designing from such contrasting piece of cloth and try showing other sides of color pink, it's not necessarily so feminine or cute. This was also fun to do, it's nice to notice I've gotten faster and more comfortable with digital tools. And, perhaps finding some direction of style that doesn't feel like too heavily influenced by styles and tricks of other digital artists or what I've learned from tutorials.

What comes to graphics and art direction, The Wind Waker is my favorite out of Zeldas that I've played, and beats most of the games in general what comes to those, too! :)

I AM SO TEMPTED I didn't come up with any great idea for his design when I was pondering if I'd draw him next so I did Vaati instead but now that you said it I can totally imagine him in similar fashion that I imagine the designs of ancient kings of North in A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones :0

It would be nice to see a game where the Courage, Wisdom and Power are three different interpretations of the characters. This Zelda could be the Bearer of the Triforce of Courage, an OOT-Impa-like could be the Bearer of the Triforce of Power, etc.
Reply
:iconevelmiina:
evelmiina Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Professional
Yeah! I was also thinking it'd be interesting to see Triforce split differently. Besides, the characters have always been very one-sided about the whole Triforce deal, I mean, why does the wisdom bearer always have to be quiet and passive and triforce of power is almost same as muscles and greed without brains.

Thanks, I'm glad you like the design! It's funny how sometimes I'm struggling with some character design scribble for hours and it ends up mediocre anyway even if I try to consider all aspects, and then sometimes just absent-minded doodling for fun results in something like "whaat whoa hold up this is gonna be good" :'D

One nice thing about whole LoZ series is that they have the capacity to surprise :> while I admit I've been disappointed in some Zelda games whereas some have been mindblowing good, they still always have tried their best to refresh the story and settings, even if little. Not saying they'd get all excited about any fanwork like this but, I'm always looking forwards to a new Zelda :heart:

I do have to agree with that. They do try to change things and have great new ideas, which they do achieve. It's also very obvious when you look at the Hyrule Historia
