ZeldaAUD: Princess Zelda by Split-Heart ZeldaAUD: Princess Zelda by Split-Heart
Finally managed to upload this! I swear I wanted to do this AGES ago!! > 3 < I certainly grew fond of this AU design for Zelda, her hair however gave me the biggest headache at first! Her colour set however was the easiest task this time. I shall name this design "Magnolia", because I think the plant suits her personality of the alternate universe I created. Her roots and origins are old and reach deep into the earth. Like branches she reached for many roles and possibilities so far, when you think about all the different kind of Zelda's out there. In the end she is a remarkable and strong personality, but unfortunately, no matter how beautiful her blossom might be, she wilts way ever so fast and easily.

Name: Zelda (means: the grey war maiden)
Age: 19
Hight: 1.62 meters
Weight: 53 kg
Family: a father who still rules the country and a future husband who is a prince of another country (she barely knows him though)
Race: Hylian, princess:heart:
Religion: Legacy of the Three Goddesses
Assigned Face: Mask of Memories
Likes: mirabelles and fresh bread, red feathers, crowded places, music, running
Dislikes: giant spiders (thinking of Ghomas.. urgh!), partiality, smelly things, rainy days
Hobbies: reading adventure stories, shopping, singing, writing letters with friends (and sending random messenges to strangers)


Thanks for comments and favs!

Is it okay if I redraw her in pencil? I will not post it.

You mean for practicing? Sure, why not? Give it a try, but when you post it somewhere, like for feedback and such just add a link to the original or just add "original art © Split-Heart" that would be all! C: But sure no fuzz, it's not like my designs could be mistaken now or anything. Good luck!:heart:

Midna is unfortunately not part of my AU, but Ganondorf will be next and I recently started to consider drawing Impa as well. But thanks a lot for the suggestion! Creating a costume for Midna sure would be challenging! C; I could give it a try once I find myself some time and inspiration!

Understandable, and I understand, I am a cosplayer and recently my group has wanted to do steampunk, Midna being my favourite has made it indeed difficult, her costume is complicated to redesign for sure! Keep up the amazing work I'll look forward to seeing Ganondorf! :)

 Me and my girlfriend are looking for a couples cosplay for next years Con. With the new Zelda games coming out we thought it would be fun to cosplay your Zelda and Link. Your designs are amazing! I love your color choices, and the detail is so good! :D You have no idea how excited I am to get started.

Thank you so much darling, I highly appreciate your kind words and support! *gasp* You make me blush! hihihi:heart:
Yes I do commissions for outfits, they would be the same price as a full body, though I will probably add a sketch of the back view for free instead of a BG.
Here is my chart: split-heart.deviantart.com/art…

:iconsplit-heart:
Split-Heart Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
o v  o hmm sure why not?
So far it includes 1 whole costume, with a sketch backview in addition.
If you do not want it to be shaded, I can set the price to that of a half-body instead, with resulting into you getting a full-body with sketch backview but only base colours, no shading. vu  v Hope I do not talk to confusing! xDD

The only thing I need to know is that you will tell people on which concept your costume is based on and photos of course would be VERY nice! So I can share them with fans inside my network and spread the word of your great work!:heart:
I am also very glad you like her design of mine, it is great to get such positive response from fans!! :D

these are beautiful!  Found my way here because your Link one was on someone's favorites.  I absolutely love the renditions here and the changes you've made to their outfits.  Still recognizable as who they are but creative and unique.  (and I personally like their outfits better in your designs)

Ein wunderschönes Design, wirklich :heart: Kleid, Farbe, Muster...
Mir gefällt auch, dass du ihr eine Hochsteckfrisur verpasst hast; so schön ich die Frisuren der Prinzessinnen immer fand, sie waren immer irgendwie lang und offen, und das ist ein kleiiin wenig eintönig xD

Haha, und über ihre "Zanto"-Ärmel bei ihrer Kutte musste ich lachen! xD
Reply
:iconsplit-heart:
Split-Heart Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Danke, ich wollt einfach mal was NEUES! *all die alten Konzepte fressend*
Eine Hochsteckfrisur bei ihr wirkt einfach jünger, lieblicher, weiblicher. Es bring ihren zarten Hals und die schmalen Schultern besser zur geltung, die ich auch mal presentieren wollte. Das ist ne FRAU, noch eine schöne und junge dazu. Die braucht keine Messingschulterplatten, um taffer zu wirken! Ja ich weiß, dass die eigentlich nur Zelda's Durchsetzungskraft hervorheben sollen, aber sowas braucht ein guter Charakter nicht. Der wirkt am besten so wie man ihn erwartet und überrascht dann den Spieler mit seinem Verhalten. (also in Zelda's Fall, Stärke, Durchsetzungsvermögen, Hingabe, Aufopferungsbereitschaft, Mut, etc.)

Pfft, tja und was die Ärmel betrifft... verdammt, ich fand die einfach niedlich ok? xDD Stell dir vor du erwischt so eine zierliche vermummte Gestallt im Flur an einer Tür lauschen und sobald sie dich entdeckt, schwattelt sie davon und schwenkt diese viel zu langen Ärmel wild umher als wüsste sie nicht was zu tun wäre. Ich find das einfach niedlich. Gibt ihr einen Hauch von Unschuld, perfect für einen jungen Sheikah in Ausbildung.

Das hast du definitiv geschafft, was neues, meine ich. Und ich stimme dir zu, Charaktere, wo man sich denkt: "Oh, was für ein hübsches, zartes Ding." und dann BÄMS, da steckt eine starke Persönlichkeit dahinter, die sind toll.
Und die Ärmel sind niedlich, keine Frage xD Ich fand es nur so lustig, dass sie denen von Zanto so ähneln.

Split-Heart Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Danke, bin wirklich happy, dass dir mein Konzept so gut gefällt! > u  <

Tja, Zant gehört zum Schattenfolk und in diesem AU stehen die Shiekah als Medium zwischen der Lichtwelt und der Schattenwelt, sie teilen viele Informationen untereinander aus und sichern die Balance zwischen beiden Welten, da Veränderungen der einen Welt sich auch auf die andere auswirken. Kleindungsstile sind mit inbegriffen! v u  v

:iconlunulata:
Lunulata Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah wie cool! Ich fand es schade dass die Shieka eigentlich so wenig benutzt werden, und Shiek und Impa sind eigentlich die einzigen (regelmäßigen) Vertreter... aber das muss ich dir ja nicht sagen -w-

I enjoyed working on her hair, face and eyes, but mostly on her shoulders! I always wanted Zelda to show blank shoulders, without looking overly sexualized. I think it makes her look more feminine and more gentle, like showing a weakspot or something. She is a wonderful character and I just wanted her to pop out a little better! C: Afterall, the game is named after HER! xDD

And yes!
Zelda deserves some big amount of attention! owo
