    I hope it wasn't already posted.

    Here is the final picture.

    Looking at the picture after the video, I can see details which I didn't see in the video.
    It's great to see all the characters from the series (though, there are some of them which I don't recognize).

    I should give a try to Painter one day. The paint effect is nice.
    I only use Open Canvas for drawing (I don't like photoshop for making a picture, the tools are more for modification than creation).


    About the picture, here are the characters I didn't recognize :
    - The dragon on the right, under Ganon. It's a random boss ?
    - The married couple on the left
    - the masked guy and woman just above the couple
    - all the characters between the boat and the hat. who are they representing ? (just some common citizen ? or important people I forgot ?)
    - the woman on the left of Agahnim (the magician with the ball-moon)
    - the masked children (except the one on the center, I don't recognize the other mask)

    Which game of the series are they from?
    Maybe there's also imaginary people from the artist.
    Also, I didn't play all the DS games yet.


    For people who didn't realized, at the very top are the 3 Hyrule's goddesses who created the Triforce
    Just bellow are the seven sages (from Zelda 3).

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I don't remember very well MM and OoT, I guess it's the occasion to play it again on 3DS [​IMG]
    (I hope there will be a MM remake too).
    I didn't complete all the OoA/OoS yet. (they are on my playlist).

    That is truly beautiful.

    Not recognizing some characters makes me want to play the games I haven't played.

    Ah yes, the elder near the first temple.
    here is a pic with the same staff http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Sahasrahla

    the old lady is maybe Impa (the one in Zelda 2), but she doesn't have the same hair style.

    She's holding a cauldron ? she's maybe the witch doing the potions.

    Proud to be Portuguese but live in USA.. for now.
    It is okay to my opinion.. Maybe awesome for an American people because those cartoons are American style drawing and not for me. For me, I am fan of Japanese arts of Zelda and Rockman and Castlevania. They are simple beautiful and very style drawing.

    But you have skill drawing and you are doing a good job. Keep up the good work. [​IMG]
