Zelda by mondays-noon Zelda by mondays-noon
Started as 'I want to draw Zelda like she's in Brawl" and ended up with this.
Nothing really to tell that was the idea, but, hey, she can fight for herself when she wants to, I'm sure.

I love the painting-like coloring! The lighting is great too; it makes her look very powerful. :D

brawl zelda had the goddess' elements help her in her princess form. considering that this is the earliest zelda that we know of, i like the idea that she is just a mage in general and thus doesn't need them for her magic. (then again she iss kinda the embodiment of hylia soo~)

I could tell before I read your description. That's why I came here. I really like how you still stayed true to the cute-ness of her in ss, but you also made her look badass! Nice job!

I am sorry. I don't have good english. ^^;

Oh, thank you. :)
I made it by going grayscale and working my way to color with Color and Overlay layers in Photoshop. Then I merged everything and painted back into it for detail work.

Oh, and regarding your question about Photoshop, Photoshop works really well. It takes a little getting used to, but it's very easy to control the different aspects of your drawing and come up with all sorts of effects. The possibilities are pretty much endless and there are loads of tutorials out there, but when it comes to painting, you pretty much have to constantly color sample with the eyedropper tool to blend your colors, which I find inconvenient, so that is why I primarily use Sai to paint and Photoshop for everything else.

It does take a while to get used to, but tutorials are very handy if you ever decide to give it a go.
And yes, you can use a tablet with Photoshop. Depending on the tablet, it can recognize tilting of the pen and all the standard pressure/sensitivity stuff.
And I'm happy to answer any questions you have. :)

Thank you and they can really sense that stuff :omg: I'm such a caveman X3, Do you think that sketchbook pro would ever be capable of doing what photoshop can?

It depends on the tablet, really. Some tablets don't register tilting or aren't as sensitive as others. :meow:
I don't think Sketchbook pro will ever have all the features that Photoshop has because they differ in purpose. I only have Sketchbook Express, but what I read of Sketchbook Pro is that it is intended for drawing, and that alone. Photoshop was intended for editing and enhancing photos, but people use it for drawing now too. Because of this, it has an extensive variety of tools and effects that no other program can compare with. For professionals, it is pretty much the industry standard program for photo manipulation.

Haha, thank you. I gave up for a while on it, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
Grayscale is just painting in the picture in grey tones. It makes it easier to focus on the form and then manipulate the colors later.. like this [link]
It looks painterly because I hopped between Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai. Sai just blends things more easily, so it's good for the painterly feel. :)
