Dawn of the first day - 72 hours remain - by Retro-Death Dawn of the first day - 72 hours remain - by Retro-Death
This is something I have wanted to draw for years, I've been working on it on and off for the past year or so.
For my RetroDeath Youtube channel I am currently working on a video version of one of my old dA journals where I talk about the legend of Zelda games and what they meant to me through my life. I'm making a lot of quick doodles for that video, taking about 5 minutes per doodle. 2 or 3 of those doodles turned out quite well though so I wanted to work on them and make full fledged artworks out of them. This is one of those doodles. Because I had the idea for so long already this doodle came to mind pretty fast and I instantly started expanding on it afterwards.

Majora's Mask is not only my favourite Zelda ever, it's one of the best games in ever made period, not THE best, but one of the. Top 5 for sure. Anyway, I often thought about how the Skullkid stole the mask exactly and this scene is what always popped up in my head, I'm so glad I finally got it out of there. The outline might be a bit crude and there are some serious anatomy issues but I was dead set on keeping the original 5 minute doodle intact.

Something about the textures and the way you colored it makes it look like a wood or paper cut-out to me. Which actually fits nicely with the theme here.

Interesting. Well as long as it looks good. I think it might be because I insisted on keeping my doodle outline intact which was pretty thick.

Yeah, I think it's the outline, combined with the neat texture on parts of it. Or maybe my brain just wants to see it as wood because of the textures. Who knows! :D

Sometimes the original fast doodle just looks more fluid and dynamic than when we try to clean it up, good job keeping that energy intact here! ;w;
I really like the cold colours of the background contrasting the characters too, and the depth of the forest ahh. <3

Thank you so much! I'm so happy with how the forest turned out. I agree about the doodles, sometimes they just look better when we don't mess around with them too much.
