Gerudo Festival by xx--ingie--xx Gerudo Festival by xx--ingie--xx
My entry for :iconwoodland-mel:'s Festival Contest at :iconthehistoryofhyrule:. The contest just officially ended, and I entered pretty much at the last minute. ^^;

For a while I wasn't sure I'd make the deadline at all. I went through a pretty major artist's block with this picture, and by the time I pulled myself out of it I'd nearly run out of time. So I stopped caring about perfecting it and just tried to finish a decent submission. Thus there are many errors throughout the image--errors I'm quite aware of. Maybe one day I'll work at it some more, get it closer to what I originally envisioned, but for now I just don't have the will power. I'm just happy I was able to participate. :)

It's not my best work, but I hope you can enjoy it for what it is. ^-^

This is exactly what I imagine the Gerudo doing. They're just like Indians. :laughing: I love Link and Zelda's awkward face expressions in this pic. ;P Very nicely drawn and good coloring. :) Great job. :thumbsup:

Is this based off of fortitude when they have the festival then?

Nope. :) Link and Zelda are meant to be much younger in this picture.

Wow I feel like i'm in the Gerudo Desert. You did a great job drawing it and getting the look of the place. I love the way you made the festival. It is EXACTLY the way I imagined it. Link and Zelda's face's are priceless lol. I love the outfits you gave them. :D

hey I like this! I love the concept of a Gerudo festival; since they are so in tune with the spirit and such I could definitely imagine them celebrating with a dance and music :)

Your light/shadow effects are really nice, especially how the firelight reflects off of the dancers. It may not be what you envisioned but it's nice nonetheless :aww:

Also, I love Link and Zelda's expressions at Nabooru :giggle: gotta love that Sage of Spirit! Also, their outfits are nicely Gerudo-like :3

Lol I don't expect you to respond to everything I comment on =P It is nice that you do take the time to reply though! ^_^

Oh of course! Even if it's not executed the way you imagined, I find that as long as what you're trying to convey comes through then it's a successful piece. If that makes sense, lol.

I think you did a wonderful job! I like the fluidness of the Gerudos dancing and the expressions of the notable three in the back ;)
I am jealous of your fire, haha!
