The Song of Time . . . by synchronetta The Song of Time . . . by synchronetta
23 hours - Photoshop CS - Tablet

Features Link from Ocarina of time.

Fun Facts:

-I've recently gotten the Collector's Edition and going through LoZ: OoT made me happy.
-I've never finished it though.
-I love Navi. I never really found her annoying. But... SCREW YOU NAVI! YOUR WINGS ARE ANNOYING TO PAINT!
-A lot of things are messed up but I tried my hardest.

+Least enjoyable part to paint: Hair and Navi
+Most enjoyable Part: Face and Gloves

The background and leaves are grey for a certain reason. When Link plays his Ocarina, the time stops--- and life stands still petrified. He can basically control anything--- weather, day/night etc. So in this image, life stands still while the two of them are fully aware of what's going on. Hence, they are completely in color and in motion. :]

I'll write more when I'm not tired. D;

But enjoy! :heart:

EDIT: I've edit the lighting so it appears to be more realistic and less shiny.

Wow. This should have way more views than it does because it's simply amazing. The realism you portrayed here made it look almost like a photo, and despite how hard it was for to pait Navi's wings I really like them. :aww: And the little glow and sparkles she trails behind.
Link's face is just about perfect, he looks so real and handsome! Great job! I'd love to see more Legend of Zelda from you. ^__^

Wow! Amazing painting! And that HAIR! It may have been annoying to paint, but it paid off big-time! The hair and eyes are probably my favorite parts. Breathtaking work! :)

wow, this looks awesome!!
i love the realistic look going on here.
navis wings look great, though maybe you could make the lines thinner, but it still looks awesome
i love the way you did the gloves, they look very realistic
but, some of the lines are a bit straight, and look unrealistic
and links left hands fourth finger looks a little awkward

but, the face looks awesome and the hair was done really well, and the background totally fits the picture
and im sorry if the criticism was harsh, i guess i got carried away.....
dont get me wrong, though, i totally love the picture, it looks awesome, and its way better than anything i can do at the moment :D

No, the criticism isn't harsh. I like criticism, and you are right about all of those points. :]

I've noticed them but perhaps I'm too lazy to fix them up (or somehow hoped no one would notice. <_<) Haha... But hopefully I'll fix it sometime soon when I have the time.

You made some fine points, so don't be sorry. Thank you for the critique. :heart:
