Midna bathes by Zeakari Midna bathes by Zeakari
I tried something a little different with the coloring. As in, I played with it harder than ever before :V This will explain the strangely green-blue tint that I liked anyway so kept xD

Ah that is still Midna, yeah, not some fancharacter despite the hairdo. She can take off her helmet and ponytail for bathing, I'm pretty sure. Though I think just by turning into shadow, any and all dirt, grime, and other such unpleasant dirtiness is removed simply because none of that can turn into shadow with her THUS DESTROYING THE IDEA OF THIS IMAGE D8 But I think I can live with that.

The background sucks, I know, but I simply did not know what to do with it. I know I wanted water, I suppose I failed at that. I hate backgrounds (but somehow in a loving way), they're such an evil necessity. So cruelly difficult to awesomely create. I should go around town and the woods and such and just draw that. Or something. For practice... yeah.

She looks like she wants to scrub off the glyphs.

I love her pose in this pic! The only problem that I can see with it is that her ears are a little too 1-dimensional, if you get what I mean. If you don't me asking, what did you use to color the picture? It's pretty awesome :D

P.S. I hate backgrounds, too :XD:

For this picture I used Photoshop C: And I understand what you mean, but the 1-dimensional look was desired, her ears to me are very flat xD Like butterfly wings! =D

Bathing in one of those holy pools? Oh what were they called...the ones where the spirits reside in. Like, Eldin and Faron and such.

I don't know~ 8D I like it the way it is of course.

I think that might hurt her, considering she nearly died from being exposed from the lights of... uh... whichever one the snake was. Wait... I know it was something to do with Nayru... I think? Cute idea, though, I hadn't thought of it ^^

Well she does seem to be fine when she's in Link's shadow as he goes into the springs (then again that might be the protection) And she also seems fine when he runs around with her on her back. Maybe she's just in danger when the spirit appears. Lanayru? Was that the snake's name? Yeah I don't remember. o__o

Zeakari Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
Yeah! That was it, Lanayru! Or at the very least, that's the name of one of the spirits.

Oh yeah, I guess it could be thought of to have taken place when Zelda gave her her ability to survive in light, so it wouldn't hurt anymore... I am retarded xD

Really cool, I like how you drew her expression and the shading.

You could try making the water lighting correspond more with the lineart ripples in the water, it might look more realistic that way. :)

I already knew to do that, it's just I focused so much on the front that the back just seemed pretty much not important, especially when the file was terribly slowed down by the time I made it to the background :ohnoes: But yeah, I may go back later... much later... and redo the background so it ceases to fail xD

i love the hair, and the body. her hair is probably the best you've ever done, in my opinion. the colors in it and the shading is lovely. the body shape is gorgeous as usual, and her skin really looks wet and shinny. and i wouldn't worry about the background. when i played the game, when ever there was a shot of her, normally i didn't pay too much attention to the background, considering she's so fun to look at

This is so pretty. The "wet" look is accomplished really well, and i love the glow of the hieroglyphs. The only way I think you could have improved it would be to have water dripping off the ends of her hair and whatnot; that would cement the look perfectly. However, this is still an awesome piece of work, and far better than any I could create.

Yeah, the water looks a little undone, but otherwise...:iconwowplz:
HOLY SHIT THIS RULES. Seriously, how'd you do the 3D look with the lighting and water features? That's god's work!

Compared to me anyways.:XD:

No, don't... now, I think some people might find that flattering, but I feel extremely uncomfortable with anything I do being called 'god's work' (not for a religious reason, mind, it's the massiveness that's the point) Please refrain from saying things like that.
