Life Sized Zelda Painting

Postby SheWhoRoars » Tue Dec 31, 2013 7:28 pm

Hey guys! I'm going to be doing a life sized Zelda painting for one of my art assignments this year :D But I need opinions on the background, before I can officially START on it. The theme for everything I'm doing this year is New and Old, so this one is going to be classic gaming vs. modern gaming. So Zelda is going to be the Twilight Princess one, and the background is going to be a pixilated map from one of the games, but I can't decide which, and which part to use. I was hoping that you guys would be able to help me pick, or if you have a suggestion about anything else that would make a good background, feel free to shout it out! Below are the ones that I'm stuck between. By the way, this thing is going to be six feet tall and four feet wide, and I need to figure out the area I'm doing so that I can grid it right...

This one was pretty, but it'd be a bit hard to pixilate, I thought :/

So, I was going to put them all in spoilers and make them look all nice with the picture, but apparently I am mostly incompetent at doing that, so the rest are going to have to be links. Sorry :sorry:

Also, I wasn't sure if this was the right area to post this in, but I figured I'd use this thread to post WIPs in, too, so I thought it'd be fine!

Ooh yay, WIPs! I was really intrigued by this project when you mentioned it in your letter (and I think I failed to mention the fact in my reply... D'oh!) so I'm really pleased you'll be sharing it here!

I like the Link's Awakening map best (the last one you linked to) because I think the colours are really vivid and would contrast well with the more subtle Twilight Princess palette. I do think you're setting yourself up for a monster project though - can't wait to see it taking shape!

:D Thank you! Yeah, I might start hating myself in the middle, but I thinkn it'll be worth it in the end :yahoo:

They would play off of eachother nicely. Do you think that a particular chunk of the map would be better or worst to use?

Ooh, I'm not sure... I think the mountain with the egg on it should be visible since it's the main plot point of the game, but other than that I don't know!

Oh gosh, thank you! I've never played that particular game, so it's good to know that's the chunk that will make it recognizable :D

Hey guys! WIPs!!!

this is right after I finished the grid tonight

And this is after I finished drawning her outline! Her head shape is horrible because I didn't want to waste my eraser on erasing all my crap lines. Also, she looks kind of squat, but in person it's way better.

I have a second WIP! I'm actually WAY further than this, but the last four days before school was out I spent every moment of my time on it, and then I started work, and so I havn't had a chance to upload them yet, so I'll space them out a little bit :D
