A Moment of Silence by EternaLegend A Moment of Silence by EternaLegend
Photoshop CS5/Wacom tablet.


_________


Inspired by one of the Assassin Creed official artworks found here--> [link], except I made my own version that represents the Legend of Zelda. Link has finished his adventure, with Ganon slayed in the background (as you can see his orange mane in the rain), and the Master Sword rested in the ground beside Link as he falls to his knees, looking up into the sky as it starts to rain to wash the blood, pain and evil away.

The death scenes of Ganondorf/Ganon are always awesome, but will we ever see one quite like this? Probably not.

I completely went all out with textures this time!

Also, if you could - please reblog this on Tumblr instead of posting it yourself thanks!

The Legend of Zelda is to the Nintendo company.

The beauty in this made me take a moment of silence. I feel like everything slowed down when I saw it. Truly amazing. Really captures the emotion you were going for. Great work. Would love to purchase a print or a digital copy if that's an option

This could be so much more dramatic if he was holding a dying Navi.  would hate for that to happen but it would definitely be a dark scene.

The whole picture looked pretty depressing with Link looking like that...

At first, I thought Link failed his mission to defeat Ganon and he was like "I've failed you, Goddesses!"

Oh my feels. ;.;

Very poignant, the rain, about washing the blood and the pain away....

And I like the raging turbulence of textures here, it's just roiling.... because goodness knows, that's probably how he's feeling right now. ;.;

Just lovely.

I didn't notice Ganon until I read the description, but it was a great touch to the image. You never really see the desperate, dark or pretty much any feelings going through his head at what he just accomplished. Excellent work, keep it up! :)
