And the winner is........ BLUE!! HURRAY!!:dummy:
The blueish colours have won by a total of TWO votes!! Seriously TWO VOTES!! I have counted EVERYTHING! All votes on previous and following polls on DA, all comments on DA and Tumblr and of course everything else I received! Cx It was an amazingly close shot right there, I am so surprised. Yet it shows me that there are indeed many things to messure when making a concept. You can't make everybody happy, but I noticed a lot that it wasn't just the colour people appreciated, but the concept itself. That makes me very happy.
Of course I have also included my person thoughts on the costume! Like what did I want to show with it? I read every suggestion and thoughts of yours carefully, thinking if I was doing the right thing or if I could possibly manage to get that same result by changing some details on the final costume? There was seriously a lot to think about and I am really thankful for your supportive words and votes!:heart:
Now enjoy this! I really put my heart into it! > u <

I think having Crispin Freeman voicing him would suit this one well, as opposed to... *sigh* Jeffrey Rath from the CDI games.

Your outfit design is a wonder! I wish Nintendo would use it somehow in a future game.

Thank you so much darling, your comment gives me the feels srsly!
I would very much love to work with Nintendo of course, but I am quite sure they won't take any notice of me. (being a girl AND a foreigner) 9 H   6

Well it's a shame.
I'd love to someday play a LoZ in a more occidental fantasy setting...

I've taken a look at your Zelda (re)designs (which are fabulous, by the way), but for some reason this one really stand out to me. I like the Zelda universe as it is, but if they were to use designs upgraded to those of your level, I would not complain at all (quite the contrary even).
