After the Fall by RoseyRoseyMae After the Fall by RoseyRoseyMae
Inspired by the Two Steps from Hell song that shares the same name.

So, here's a scene that I believe would happen between cutscenes in "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess." Zelda just surrendered to Zant, Lord of the Twilight Realm, of course she's upset! Zelda goes throughout the entire game being composed and solemn, so I thought she would need a moment to lose herself in grief.

This took me longer than what I expected, and it was a heck of a lot harder than I had expected too. I had to go in and draw everything you see as the reflection on separate pieces of paper in order to make them. Oh yeah, and I colored everything with my mouse. :meow: It was hard, but I'm in love with this result. :love:

Oh wow, this is just a really beautiful scene. :) It's true, we don't often see Zelda this.... distraught. But I wouldn't doubt that she definitely had some moments like this alone in her guarded tower chamber. :tears:

And also.... I am loving the methods detailed in your comments! :la: That is impressive, and it really is a lovely effect. And my GOOOOSH mouse coloring! :wow: Whatever blood, sweat and tears you poured into this.... I'd say they were definitely worth it. Very beautiful. :clap:

I always mouse color. :XD: If Mom gets around to cleaning off the desk, I use my tablet, but that's once every three months or so. :giggle:
Distraught is a nice word. I like that word. I should use that word more often. :XD:

I really do :) the colors and reflection are wonderful here.

the only advice i could give you for this one is to try to get smooth lines : here they're pixel-ish in full view, is it because you color with the paint bucket ? I can give you a few tips if i know what give your line this pixel aspect ^^

:P My lines pixelize because I ink the picture in real life and then use the magic wand tool to separate the lines from the paper. :x I don't have a higher-graded Photoshop that will allow me to make smoother lines (Photoshop Elements 6 doesn't have a "pen tool"). They always pixelize when you zoom up, but zoomed out it looks okay, right? :XD:

I can't upgrade Photoshop until after I get a laptop of my own, so I probably will end up with pixelized lines for quite awhile.

i don't know what options has PE6, but can you try to put the lineart layer at the top, in multiply mode ?
the line will always be black but you won't have this pixellised aspect anymore.

Try also to color with brushes instead of magic wand and paint bucket, it's longer but i think the result is really cleaner, like you did for Carpe Diem.
Anyway you really rock with colors, so keep up :D

Would you believe I tried the line-art layer on top?

Multiply mode. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder....... I'll have to try that out with my next picture. (I have a commission to finish ASAP :XD:)
