Legend of Zelda Illustrations Roundup

Paintings, Sketchbook

Hey Listen!

I decided that I needed to put out a short blog post with a roundup of my illustrations from the recent Legend of Zelda miniseries that I put out. I have a couple of charcoal drawings in am ore fine art style and the rest are ink and watercolour pieces.

The Legend of Zelda is a subject of inspiration that I will continually revisit over time as I love the story, the franchise and the massive nostalgia points I get each and every time. That’s without mention of the absolutely incredible Zelda community which alone is reason enough to create Zelda artworks!

I wouldn’t have worked on a series of as many piece as I did this time around though if it wasn’t for the nudge and inspiration from Joel Siegel over at Linktober – The fact that he put on the Zelda Creator Con and gave me a place within it gave me a massive boost as well as in incentive to get truly stuck in, even putting my Geisha series on hold for a short time.

Continuing on with my Legend of Zelda miniseries, I decided to add a piece into the mix with more of a fine art vibe to it. So far I’ve worked up a few ink and watercolour illustrations with a few more planned, this piece however is a charcoal drawing; with the intention of later being an oil painting.

Let’s get straight to the artwork…

Hey Listen!

Every now and then I am suddenly and unexpectedly hit with surges of nostalgia, and having art and illustration as my choice medium of outlet, this usually always results in artwork. Sometimes just a doodle of scribble, sometimes a painting; and occasionally a series.

This is the case with this miniseries, I also will be adding a few more pieces to this set as well using different media; as I have been accepted into the upcoming Zelda Creator Con by Linktober!

Anyway, before I keep rambling on like the Great Deku Tree, let’s see some art…

Into The Dungeon…

True to the title of this post, that is exactly where I feel I have been and hence my lack of a post in almost a month. I recently started a new job as a chef and the unsociable hours have been getting the better of me in terms of keeping up with my social networking and artwork.

I am now however, finding a new routine for working on my art and have wrangled a bit more time now that I am getting used to my shift patterns; I also recently completed a commission for an album cover which is the true subject of this post.

Tomorrow I will be starting a new oil painting; a small portrait of Galadriel which I’ve had ready to paint for a while and now can finally make a start on before I head into the hectic evening shift of Italian cuisine.

Anyway, all that aside, here is the artwork which for now I have titled ‘Into the Dungeon’ and will post again with the relevant links once the album is released!
