UPDATE: FRONTPAGE WEEW! <3 <3
Thanks for the love, Newgrounds.

Beat Breath of the Wild last month!
Loved every minute of it. Nintendo really outdid themselves with this one. I'm especially enamored with the character design this time, so I couldn't help but draw up a couple different fan art prints for future conventions.

If you've played Breath of the Wild yourself, you may notice a couple Zelda-related details in this piece: Urbosa's shield (the Daybreaker) and some Warm Safflina Flowers (which are littered around the Gerudo Valley)!

Since I love Art Nouveau so much, I also based Riju's pose heavily on one of the Alphonse Mucha Precious Stones series: Topaz!

Example of original reference here: http://www.artnet.com/WebServices/images/ll541671llg9ND62CfDrCWBHBAD/alphonse-mucha-the-precious-stones-(ruby,-emerald,-amethyst,-topaz).jpg

3 days and 37 layers later, I finally have my newest print done in time for Calgary Expo!

*passes out forever*

UPDATE AGAIN:
Prints/t-shirts can be purchased here! <3
