Now that is one present I would like to unwrap...
The Nintendo Princesses are some of my favorite; Peach, Daisy, Zelda, Midna and Rosalina are just beautiful characters all around, and some of the best examples of strong female heroines we have seen. And boy, am I ever glad to see tasteful and sexy art like this about Rosalina.
Just like Midna, I think Rosalina stole the show in the game she appeared in for the first time; her gentle nature, elegance, and beautiful story made me the game for me, and it is a great plesure to see that great artists still make fantastic art like this one.
My favorite thing about this illustration is the coloring; Rosalina looks absolutely delightful, the use of blues, yellows and white is a sight for sore-eyes. I also really like the shading; Rosalina's body is very well-made, and her legs, arms, breasts, face and torso are beautifully drawn. Speaking of her face, her facial expression is adorable: I love her eyes and her little smile; and her hair, crown, and earrings compliment the already delightful design of Rosalina.
The background is amazing; I love the stars, the way the tone of blue ranges from to bright to dark; and I absolutely LOVE the white silhouette. It makes the picture more eye-catching, and also goes great with the overall theme. It's just marvelous all around.
Overall, this is an amazing piece of art. It's probably one of the best and most developed illustrations I have ever seen about Rosalina. And ultimately, this type of art is the one that makes coming to Newgrounds worth to.
