Link and Midna by IcEKoLd Link and Midna by IcEKoLd
Gift for :icondreamroyale: who requested a Link and Midna picture. :heart:

Hopefully this will help mend your heart girl. ;)

Midna: :D
Link: ;|

Twilight Princess has the most detailed characters ever! Midna's hat had more details in it than I really wanted to draw. Well it was definitely challenging in that aspect. :w00t:
And forgive me Dream, but as far as I've seen in the game so far - Midna has an annoying personality. Always on Link's head like she owns him. :lol: Well in wolf form anyway. I'm sure it's out of love though. :love:

Link, Midna (c) Nintendo, Miyamoto

*SQUEE!*
Oh, my god. My heart is racing. lol I almost screamed when I saw this in my devwatch box. THIS IS SO FREAKIN' AWESOME!
Midna is her usual annoying self, and Link is doing his traditional, "I'll tolerate you for now."
That is one smexy Link!!

The detailsss... *drool* Omigosh.
This is amazing!! THANK YOU!! :glomp: :glomp:

On a side note- I think you're not supposed to like Midna until later. Trust me, she reverts later in the game. She's purposefully portrayed as an irritating, over-controling imp. She even says to a spirit later, "Actually, we weren't just trying to save you..." As in they had other intentions. :XD: But she'll get better.

Merry Christmas! *rolls in cookies* haha, man I love your reaction! I knew you'd love it, but you blew me away. :giggle: I have to say that you pinned down EXACTLY what I had going for Link and Midna's expression. Exactly! I'm so happy you are pleased. :D :D I tried my best since I felt I owed it to all the support you given, and believe me I enjoyed it! (An excuse to draw Link = bliss)

So now I know I have something to look forward to in Midna. :XD:

I have a scale of my "wow" factor. When I look at a deviation, I do one of these things:

-glance over it and not comment
-appreciate good values and comment, "Hey, nice! I like the bla bla"
-gawk at the picture and type some half-illiterate babble-comment

Yours make me gawk and babble.

Ya it's based off the game "Twilight Princess". It has a series as well, and if green is your favorite color, then you can't lose with this game! :XD: Link loves his green tunic. Thank you so much for the heart-warming comment sis! :glomp: :hug:

I like the lighting effect you added and the shadows they cast are perfectly done. (Shadows are one of those things you don't notice when done right -- it's when they are missing or fall incorrectly that they stick out like sore thumbs.)

Anime characters typically are designed with very low feature details for the sake of quick animation production. That is not true for other genres -- particularly gaming, where systems are getting more and more powerful with better and better graphic details. When you're used to drawing anime characters, switching to something like Zelda is definitely gonna be a pain in the details department!! But you did very well.

Link's neck must be like a tree truck to support the additional weight of Midna!

Oh how right you are! Anime characters are definitely more simple when it comes to details. It used to be that game characters were hardly detailed, except for the cover of the game. Now with all the new powerful technology put into gaming consoles - that's a thing of the past. I can only imagine what gaming will be like for the next generation. :faint:

*BIG SMILE*

Thank you so much Oshouki, for saying I did well in the area of details. It's quite a compliment coming from you since you put so much detail into your work! :D

And I'm really glad the shadows have been done well. I agree that when something is off, only then does it stick out like a sore thumb. It's quite an accomplishment to hear that it's well placed! =D =D

Hahaha! I figured Midna was half floating since she seems to have that ability, but Link's neck better be strong! :XD:

You're very welcome. But I wouldn't put that much stock in what I say. I just know that I find it helpful to get comments and criticisms, so I just give what I like to receive.

Pretty soon, drawing video game characters will be like drawing realism!! XD

Great shading work, IcE! I marvel especially at the design of Midna's helmet! It's the little touches that truly get me, and in this case, I love the light wisp of green sparkles that surround the two of them, it's done very well. Terrific lighting effect as well, the fading really does resemble what we see with the sun. :thumbsup:

You deserve to be glomped! :glomp: :XD: You always notice the little details and I'm very thankful for that. :D I'm glad the green sparkles added a nice touch and hopefully they weren't overdone. Too much attention can take away sometimes.
I'm also glad that the fading light added a sunny touch since that's what I was aiming for. :w00t:
Thank you so much for the awesome comment bro! :highfive:
