Awaiting His Return by Art-Zealot Awaiting His Return by Art-Zealot
Feel free to reblog on Tumblr, but I'd appreciate doing so from here.

Process Video is up!


I beat Skyward Sword again last night. Even though it was a speed run just to get back to Hero Mode (since our former Wii died) you just can't help becoming personally invested in the story. I don't know how he does it, but Miyamoto nails it each time--and not just every game, but every single time you play the game! Kudos, man...just kudos. ALL the feels...

This particular moment illustrates something no one sees when they play the game. When Link takes his first trip to the Silent Realm, I often wonder if Fi worries about him--in her own calculating way. Maybe, maybe not, but regardless I get the feeling that she is glad to see him return successfully after his Trial.

EDIT: Here's a poem by LittlewriterLink inspired by this moment.

Wonderful stuff. The lighting on this is astonishingly well done.
Any chance of getting the brush settings? Not to diminish the talent that went into this, but that looked very smooth and fun to use. :)

Thanks so much! The brush is just a hard-edge, pressure-opacity brush with a canvas texture underneath. Very versatile and fun to use!
