The water is wonderful here, I love how Navi’s glow catches on the waves. The new piece also has a greater sense of intrigue, the down facing angle put more focus on the ocarina and the discovery, where before it focused more on the character’s reactions.
Thank you MaskedDragon. It took me several tries to get the water just right. Acutally the bright portions of the water are intended to be from the sun. navi's reflection wouldn't be visible unless the canvas was taller and showing more of the water. but i think it sounds cool that it might be interpreted as her glow on the water. i should have thought of that when i decided to place her. it would have looked really cool. maybe i can store that in my brain as another idea for a painting!
Hmmmm, I'm now going to be the one to go out on a limb here and say you seem like a DEFINITE, Sword and Scorcery (kill me I can't spell today, heheh) artist, love the detailing and your flowing water, Link looks amazing and the detail is incredible. Always love to see your skill. Cheers for now mate
