MM: The Gateway to Termina by Kanokawa MM: The Gateway to Termina by Kanokawa
:iconreadcplz1::iconreadcplz2::iconreadcplz3:

My entry to :iconxjapanrox:'s Legend of Zelda contest to make a 2.5 x 3.5 art card.

As a hardcore Majora's Mask fan, I wanted to make a Majora's Mask picture; especially since Halloween is coming up at the end of the month! This was great background practice with SAI and Photoshop, so I'm very happy with how it turned out!

> Sketch done on paper.
> Lineart and colors done on SAI.
> Textures and finishing touches on Photoshop

This took... days. I lost track on how long it took to complete it. Your feedback would be very helpful! ^^

The Legend of Zelda and all of it's characters Nintendo

the 3 day limit drove me a little crazy but I'll give it another shot. *cracks knuckes and cricks neck side to side*

The 3 day limit is more of a thrill after you've played it a dozen times. Although playing the Inverted Song of Time helps a lot, it defeats a lot of the challenge. O:

LOVE IT. ONLY ONE THING THAT BOTHERS ME...

While everything else is in perspective, the clock and gears are not D:

I did suggest you for a DD though :D

:iconkanokawa:
Kanokawa Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I kind of played around it; but I wanted it to look more like a signpost structure and less like an actual working clock. And for thinking this would be DD worthy; thanks a bunch!

Perhaps they delaying it so that they can do a complete overhaul with the graphics rather than just smoothing them out like OoT 3d

Kanokawa Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They might do it the same as the time they made Majora's Mask for the N64, and reuse the models and gameplay from OoT 3D without touching the graphics too much. As long as they give Link his flips, I'll be happy!! I loved those!! :D

skywardbankai Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011
I'm sure they'll probably do that but I was just dreaming...Oh yeah, I loved the flips as well it was the first difference I noticed in MM. I guess that is why at the very beginning they make you use human link for a bit and they let you jump on those tree stumps

awww Majoras Mask! I love that game (': I hope they make a 3D version of it! 8D that would be awssssuum ♥

I like this artwork of MM! Very detailed (in my eyes) and you even included the stray fairies! 8D and the grass looks very good. Nice lightning in the background too, it makes the forest looks lively ♥
Link and Skull kid looks great, and I love their poses (:

Overall, this artwork is beautiful, you did a nice job (: ♥

I wish you the best of luck in the contest! :la:

I know, right? Majora's Mask is such a great game, seeing it remade would be incredible.

I added the stray fairies on a whim, I'm glad that you took notice in such a small detail! And thanks for wishing me luck in the contest too! :dummy:

I remember I always hated the moon, and the moment you had try to save that damn cow from the aliens. that scared the shit out of me x'D

Heehee, how could I not notice them! :dummy: They're a pain in the ass to find in the game, but I still love them (8

You did an amazing job! I love everything about this piece, but the thing that catches my eye the most is the grass and trees. The detail is wonderful.
