Goodbye Wallpaper Preview!

reply

Haha, I think all this upload and deleting of the artwork recently is messing with our pages/week stats.

Since we always remove whatever art was here when the next page is up and our preview was only up for about a day, for those who missed it, our Feb wallpaper preview has been released and you can check it out on the news page : )

A new page!

Poor Gan :( I hope Link will cheer him up, and that nothing bad will happen >_<

This is just a random remark but I always thought Ganondorf's Triforce mark was on his right hand...? (except in Wii TP when things are mirrored...) Not like it matters, of course ^_^ Things like that are up to the artists' interpretations.

Can't wait to see the next page and to get my mitts on that wallpaper >:3

Quill's a nice guy; he may not look like he cares, but he's a softie. ;) Though, who would want to see a child mobbed and/or glared at. D':
A war you say? Chilling, I want to see how that goes, how that effects everyone.

And you act like an insensitive ass because...?

reply

@SonaBia: I saw the page when it first uploaded; I can vouch for Draug419 that the mark of the Triforce was indeed on the back of Ganondorf's right hand before any editing was done. The artist only stuck to consistency as a result of this otherwise trivial mistake that he has pointed out; Draug was only commenting on the edit afterward.

No need to be rude and pick on Draug because of this, so you can keep those 25 cents to yourself, as you look like the kind of person who would make better use of it for the intent of purchasing a life, as you said.

@VizardJeffhog: Actually, originally it was not on his hand, someone commented that it should be so I added it, but then the other commenter pointed out that they where wrong so it was removed. This was actually switched up several times.

I've fallen for your work! It's instantly going on my favorites list!!! XD Also, the few pages where Link kept talking, I think that's the reason why they don't make him talk... Because he won't stop talking if he does. Lol

@Ceil: I'm not really sure how to answer your "how to" question, I am not good at vague things, but if you have a specific question about it I would be happy to answer. For the rest of it, I am an animator by training and trade, which requires me to be able to be an actor through drawings. When I draw outside of animation, I try to think of what I'm drawing as people first and the style as just being how they happen to look.

My style does not dictate how I draw expressions and I don't use shortcuts or "cues" to express them. I do not have default stock expressions to express emotions. For example, link and Ganon are capable of feeling the same emotions, but would not express them the same way. Link is very out-going and happy, his expressions are raw, honest and child-like. Gannon is much more reserved and his expressions are less raw and more mixed when reacting in a similar way to the same thing as link. People are not simple creatures, and we never feel "just happy, just sad, just confused, etc". For another example, when link experiences joy, it is exciting and energizing to him. When he is happy, most anything else on his mind is pushed out of the way and so when he smiles, he does so in an energetic and purely joyful way. When Ganon, on the other hand, experiences joy, it is in a situational context and the things that lead up to that point in time stay with him. His joy is much more subtle and his emotion of emotions in general much more reserved. Ganon is cautious of feeling things such as joy and therefor does not smile in such an energetic or exuberant way as Link.

It is also important to me that my characters express emotions through their body language. If my characters are feeling sad and defeated, I should be able to cover their faces with my thumb and still get the same information I got from their faces (exceptions of course for when characters are being dishonest in their expression). We express things with our whole body, even if we do not realize it or notice it in other people on a conscious level, it is something that our brain notices.

It is all about how your characters smile and frown, not just the fact that they do so.

@Stephan: Thank you so much for telling me that, it has pushed my artwork into a new plain of emotionalism. I needed that because I am creating a video game and wanted it to show more emotion(unlike most of the zelda titles where link doesn't really have facial expression) I want it to be real like you're there. Do you have any other tips for creating such depth in character?

Thanks you so much again!!!
