Smoldering Twilight

So this one started out with a random post on Imgur of some model or another, but when I saw the pose (the one in the first version), I immediately saw her as Midna. Couldn’t shake it, and was feeling a little low creatively so I was like alright, let’s do that.

I don’t remember what I cooked up this throne room background for but it worked perfectly for this. I always love lighting scenes in the Twilight...the orange and purple makes for amazing contrast in the resulting views. 

Had to disable Depth of Field for the second one...just wouldn’t cooperate.

By the by, the full size of the first one is available on DeviantArt for free, the second for $4. Original size is 10240 x 6400. :) Enjoy, and thanks for looking!!

...I may do a followup to this one as well...

FYI, the version for sale is 10240 x 6400, including the alternate version you can find on Tumblr. :)

And yeah sorry for vanishing so long, the tech problems I had upgrading really put me off the work for awhile, as you can see I'm back at it again for more pain. :)

Any thoughts on this? Getting quite happy with this face model upgrade for Peach. :D

Also hi.
Merry Christmas everyone! Due to a ton of technical issues I've had recently with my rendering box, I'm *way* behind on my works. Hopefully I can get the Christmas piece I made out shortly before new years. :XD: Otherwise it'l probably be shelved till next year.

As always thanks for your support, love making stuff for you guys! Take it easy and have a great holiday!

So I was thinking: To help fill the gaps between posts, maybe I could post WIP pictures or test renders? Would you guys be interested in that sort of stuff?

Some of my favorite pieces of work you do is the harem art in aquatic-themed settings, there's just something majestic and undeniably beautiful about them, if possible, could you do one for Fi from Skyward Sword and Midna in her Imp form together? :)
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2016
That's an interesting idea. I don't know if I have a Fi model but I can take a look. :D

I haven't had the time to track down a Fi model. :( Plus been busy with the holidays and whatnot.

'Ello there, sorry to bother you, but I'm looking for deviants whom seem to have an interest in LoZ, and you fit that perfectly, I believe. ^^ The reason I'm looking for deviants is if they'd like to join a new group I've created, for the sake of gathering LoZ fans and hopefully keep the group active as long as possible. Of course, right now, I'm just working on finding those who would seem interested. It's alright if you're not interested, just a suggestion. ^^ Please do tell me if you are or not.

Also, the fact that what you do is very rarely seen on deviantart in the fandom is amazing. You're the only one I've seen who does 3D art of LoZ so well and it's all just beautiful in more ways than one. Of course, the more meaningful ones always get to me, but I mean, that's the point, right? I just like that you seem to have always done this sort of art and are rather proud to do something many don't do on this website. And well, I hope you improve and continue to enjoy doing what you do!Neko Emoji-37 (Yay) [V2]

I have a bit of a thing for LoZ. :D

And yeah, I'm always looking for new groups! I can't promise to contribute much on the admin end of things, I'm quite busy IRL and it makes me leave the site for days at a time, but I'd be more than happy to submit artwork and help out wherever I can. :) PM me details once you get more set in stone.

Have a good one!

Oh no, it's alright if you can't contribute often. That's not what I'm looking for really. My main reason for creating a new group was well, I just wanted to make a place of sorts where people with that common interest can share their art and chat with others, say what they think and such about the different games and all. So basically just what groups are meant for. There also was the matter that I felt LoZ groups, many were not very active. Most that I've checked seemed to be inactive in accepting people's art and people would complain and ask as to whether there art wasn't good enough or just being ignored, ya know? So really, what matters is that I'm active as the admin and well, you do whatever you wish really.

As one new to this whole "managing a group" thing, I'm still trying to figure out what's the most convenient, how to put up certain things and all sorts of things. Like all new things, I need to experiment and see what works, so nothing is really set in stone XD So I suppose I should take the time to do that instead...Well, thank you for the reply! And getting my brain going. =P (Razz)
