Medli Rito

Author Comments

I wanted to draw a botw styled Rito of Medli. And such this happened.
I think botw may takes place of the distant future of child timeline? (nothing is official there yet, beside it's after oot).

And I like to think maybe in the different timelines there can still be similar characters (I mean tingle and beetle is all over the place after all). So I like to think Medli was in the non-wind waker timeline as well at some point (just with a different story and role perhaps?). Since they timelines are often kinda like an alternative realities anyways.
So I think this styled of Medli is the child timeline version in a way XD.


This is a really cool charecter. I don't know enough of the lore to really comment on its uniqueness but I like it. The mix of the bird and a human estetic is spot on and it fits nicely into the Zelda universe I think. I also like the color choices with a nice blend of greens and reds that give a very balanced impression. The choice of background colors fit excentuate the colorpalette of the cloths perfectly as well. Really nice and I love the abstract background! I might borrow that idea from you in the future! :)

When it comes to the execution I can't really fault it. The fact that you've worked with a gradient in quality with higher quality in the face of the charecter is great! Wished I had that fingertip feeling for how to do it as it creates a natural focuspoint in her face and in particularly those eyes of hers that give her so much charecter! She's really like, "so, what are you gonna do about it?". Really cool.

If I had to give some critique I think that some of the shadows around the livery could have been a bit smoother and perhaps not quite as dark. I also would have liked to have seen a bit darker shadow on the wings to separate the "arm" of the wing from the feathers a bit more. Finally the "wrinkles" or whatever you call it on the feet could have been a tiny bit darker. However these are all nitpicks as they at the same time provide the aforementioned focal point but still my motivation for 4.5/5.

Overall a really cool charecter and style. Congrats
