Courage by HyliaBeilschmidt Courage by HyliaBeilschmidt
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." ~Nelson Mandela

Originally, I wanted to redraw that old piece of poo but I was too lazy. Due to harassment loss of confidence I haven't coloured with pencils for quite some time, please forgive my rusty skills ^^;

Please reblog, don't repost

No, I will not make Wisdom and Power in the series. Other artists will do them

Did you use Prismacolor pencils for the coloring and shading here?

I absolutely love the differing weights in the lines. They're so crisp and sharp; so much so that this illustration would be just as distinctive without coloring. That said, though, I love the warm, kind of sienna lighting. It makes Link look he's returning from a heroic adventure at sunset. Framing the piece in a triangle was clever, too. It makes the piece even more interesting aesthetically, as well as making reference to the Triforce.

I like how part of him overlaps the triangle. It makes it seem to pop out at the veiwer, making it more real.

Oh my gosh, this is fantastic. Great composition, colors, and style accuracy. I love the extra texture the colored pencils give the piece.

Style accuracy????? Really? It's been my dream to be able to draw the official styles confusingly accurate so well that the viewers would have difficulty telling if it's official or not ^^;

I loved playing the Legend of Zelda! ...And then my DS broke :( Anyway, I like this a lot! It's cool how bits Link's hair and the figurehead go outside the triangle. I also like how the dark sky highlights the brightness of everything else beneath. :happybounce: It's very cute and well done!

Super cute! I love the textures and colours here. The triangle is lovely as well. I really like the way his outline breaks out of the triangle. It feels more dynamic and interesting, as though he's coming out of the background. ^^

hm I think it is better.. tbh since it's been a little while since I first saw it it's hard to say ^^; I think it's reasonably legible either way, the bottoms of the letters sort of blend a bit with the murky water color, but the tops stand out very well
