The buildings look a bit flat (and not quite as much in the background as the scraps of rock they're on) but otherwise it's awesome. Looks like a rock album cover.

I spent countless hours as a kid just staring at this image in the manual, reading the manual front-to-back, looking for little secrets that might be in the game. I don't even want to think about how much time I spent just roaming the game world(s) looking for the Triforce and other secrets. LttP to me was pure magic. Thank you for bringing back some of that magic just now.

I saw the thumb and went, "A LINK TO THE PAST DO WANT!"

:love:

First Zelda game I ever played. :heart: It brings me such joy to see art from/based on it.

I left that out to make it look more dream-like. :) My personal preference is a soft glowy lighting instead a powerful flare.

I thought directly on that: A comparison between Zelda 3 and Zelda Skyward sword. [link] on [link]

That's really awesome how Nintendo did that. And the theme they made that was a reverse of Zelda Lullaby is also directly based on Zelda's theme in ALTTP. :XD:

The foreground pieces are actually quite nice. It's a shame that the background lacks so much depth. It would be very good if you could make the background look as nice as the foreground does, and maybe make the clouds less uniform...

I don't have any desire to edit this one any further since this was just an experiment, a glorified doodle if you will.

It's much softer than the original, but still good. It looks like an up to date version, in my opinion.
