I have just seen the most amazing Zelda painting in the entire world and it makes me cry that I will never ever be able to achieve this.

Regardless, though, the world is a better place just by this existing.

(Original artist and Making Of video is here, if you have a pixiv account.)

Well, I've still got a couple projects going on laggingly, but this kind of knocks all the wind out of my sails. Maybe I'll make something that impressive someday... when time comes for Zelda 50th anniversary... ^^;

You're pretty fucking good, if I do say so myself. :3 I bet you could do something like this. I do admit it does knock one a bit, but it can also be really inspiring.

Aw, thanks :3 Skill-wise, maybe I'd be able to pull it off (after like... FIVE YEARS), but it's more the concept and composition etc. that I'm in awe of. I definitely don't have ideas this grand... yet!

As for inspiring, OH YES ;) Hopefully I'll be able to get some progress to show out of that adrenaline rush.

I know what you mean. But I'm wondering how much planning ahead of time was put into it. I mean, I wonder if there's stuff they just couldn't show in the video. Anyway, it is a keen example of pure art endurance.

Wow... that is just breathtaking. It brings a tear to my eye! And makes me want to play Ocarina again :P

I'm holding off on replaying OoT until it comes out on the 3DS so it'll be as fresh as possible. Although by this point I'm starting to paranoidly suspect I'm going to screw it up for myself by uh... over-denial...?? Aaanyway.

I'm sure you'll definitely be able to do something like this someday, and that you're much closer to it than you think (if anything you're always humble). :)

I think of it less as "humble" and more as "awareness of how lazy I am" ;)
