SKYWARD ZELDA: Come Fly With Me by Eddy-Shinjuku SKYWARD ZELDA: Come Fly With Me by Eddy-Shinjuku
Yes, I can paint cute things too! :iconbadassplz:
Well, it was a request from a special kid and I don't refuse such favor in a million years. XD

:bulletgreen: In many ways, this art portrays the 'mischievous' smiles of hers when she tricks Link into pushing him off the Cliff/Loft. Very cheeky and cheerfully non-apologetic. A video may help perhaps: [link]
:bulletgreen: Pretty much a stark contrast from the Twilight Princess I guess; I find this version of Zelda refreshing, warm and vibrant; reminds me of this "childhood sweethearts" kind of vibe in the overall feel of Skyward Sword, even when I haven't really play it more than an hour lol

Critique by TammyHylian Jan 3, 2013, 11:20:41 AM
It's my first time to write a critique and I believe that this piece totally deserves an honest and professional opinion ^^.
First of all you did a good job choosing the colors for the background it totally matches her original colors purple, blondy hair and blue eyes. You did great with her hair although I believe is her hair is more platinum blond, but golden isn't bad at all. I can see clearly that put to mush effort on the hair, the details it's like I can count her hair ^^ it is so realistic. The skin, liked the tone of the color especially the facial details, she really appears like a doll <3
Moving to her eyes, they're super innocent, true and blue. her nose isn't really slim but seems good to her face. I am totally in love with her nude color lips, very sexy and looks real.

Her body pose is spontaneous and natural and the same for her hand.
This piece of art is too romantic, spontaneous and beautiful and it is clearly illustrating a real princess. :heart:
Good work <3

Wow. Just...wow.

So Astonishing. Usually I write 4 paragraph long critiques, but in this situation astonishing sums it up.

The detail is astounding. I literally just sat there staring for a good minute. Its amazingly accurate. Plus extra detail. Its like putting putting syrup on waffles. It makes it awesome. (Sorry for the weird analogy :P)

I've streamed through hundreds, maybe THOUSANDS of Zelda pictures, searching for the greatest one. And this my friend might just be it.

Summing it up, amazing detail, fantastic angle, beautiful picture.

10/10. I see no flaws.

A round of applause for you good sir.

Hope you don't mind the late reply, my inbox never failed to get my mind boggled with all these messages lol ;p

I see you've cosplayed as SS Zelda! XD
For a person who dedicated herself for this character I take you words to heart since you've been her and know the best way to portray her. :nod:
Though I put my little twist in it making her a bit mischievous; let's just say her smile here got Link pushed off the skyloft. Hope you are not going to do that with some poor boy ^^;

Really amazing epic art! She looks sooo beautiful that not just Link will fall for her ;)
Very realistic. How much time did you spend on the hair? It looks amazing, but could be one hell of a job, I think.
Wonderful, really wonderful. But I see no mischievousness in her smile. She could trick anybody with that :D

Yes, those awesome brushes are great for face and hair details, I've already proven that with Zelda here, especially the hair :nod:

Same brushes used in my Alice art as well: [link]

You truly proved it, but it also takes some skill as well. I myself has still alot to improve when it comes to coloring. But perhaps these brushes will make it a bit easier and most of all, even more good and realistic looking. Ohhhh, and I remember that awesome Alice art! Didn't know it was yours! You gotta do more Alice and Zelda, you have such amazing skill!

Oh, I like this one too! The Skyward Sword Zelda is the first incarnation of her that I really liked. Every other game I just thought, "Fine. I guess I'll save her if I have to." But in this game, I actually *wanted* to. :)

The otherworldly character of her face reminds me of the character of Kira from the Dark Crystal.

Yes, this is the Zelda that you actually cared. It's no surprise that Link followed her through dimensions and dark caves :D

Lol I'm getting heaps of comment saying that she resembles Kira ;p
I suppose this uncommon realism attempt on her that does the charm :nod:

damn, you really captured. SS zelda. she's alot more cheery and carefree, and i rather like that. (probably has alot to do with not having your country conquered and having to surrender it.)

all in all an amazing image, realisim while still keeping the cartoony elements. great job.

Yes, the previously 'matriarch' Zeldas are always defensive and introverts; one even poses with a sword and means business all the time (Twilight Princess Zelda lol)

Anyways, very much appreciated your time at viewing this artwork and sharing your thoughts! Many thanks indeed, cheers! XD
