Happy New Year everyone.
This is an illustration that I did for a Nintendo themed charity auction. My assigned character was the crimson loftwing from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The concept here is what if Legend of Zelda was made similar to Nintendo's Yoshi's Island where the steed (Crimson Loftwing/Yoshi) is the star of the game rather than the main character (Link/Mario). Baby Link is depicted here atop the crimson loftwing fighting bubbles and peahats. The art style is also heavily influenced by the storybook style of Yoshi's Island.
It's been such a long time since I've done any serious fanart. I'm pretty pleased with the results. Hopefully this illustration will raise some good money for the charity auction.
