INFO on the CONTEST/RESULTS
Remember; the contest is about originality and not only about skills. The winners caught my eye with a great composition
and a good idea
to show off. I also picked up only finished work.
The Legend of Zelda sure is an iconic video game. Not only for its gameplay and story, but also for its memorable characters. I adore how emotional and powerful this artwork shows the battle between the real and ''dark self''. The image itself tells a story, a deep one where darkness awaits. The addition of Navi was a bright idea. Not only it bring a little source of color and hope, but it also gives another perspective to look at. Navi, who faces this dramatic moment, is powerless... hoping with all her might that her friend comes back. Unchanged.
It looks like a poster! Those were my first thoughts when I first lay eyes on this artwork. The details are outstanding, the poses accurate and the disposition of the characters so dynamic! I am impressed at the way the artist drew the hair and how pretty the feathers are. So many colors for one single item. The display ''light and dark'' gives depth to the scenery, a feeling of adventure filled with troubles and beautiful moments. Outstanding work!
It's not easy to turn a female Stock pose into a male one
OMG THAT PERSPECTIVE! Poses with strong perspective probably are the hardest to draw. Especially if you have to add props and weapons afterward! With this action pose, we can really feel the video game inspiration behind the character. The little details added to the pants and fabric is a beautiful touch, as much as the Japanese style door in the background. The drawn expression really reflects the original character. Wise, strong... sometimes scary. That's Hikage for you.
__________________ SPECIAL MENTION
So much poses were used in that artwork! It was great to find strong female characters, all around at the same table
