Skull Kid by MGabric Skull Kid by MGabric
OMG DIGITAL PAINTINGS!!! First one in a while to be completely finished.

Anyway this was done for :icongame-art-hq: for the Zelda Tribute: Link's Blacklist. Absolutely love skull kid, both OoT/MM and TP designs.

Do check out the other entries for this tribute, they are just astounding. [link]

Probably gonna do more digi-paintings after this...but of what...

-------<EDIT>-------
:jawdrop: Holy shi- 250K+ pageviews
So after reading the numerous advice, comments, and critiques, I present to you the results of an extra 2 hours.

- Fixed that pesky grass (it bothered me a lot too after looking back at it) :shakefist:
- Adjusted the focus of the lamp and lighting affected by it.
- Added some more details to the background and the bark of the stump.
- Plopped some grass in the foreground as well.

:iconlaplz: THANK YOU ALL FOR THE FEEDBACK AND SUPPORT!!! HUGS AND LOVE TO EVERYONE!!!! >0< This doesn't even scratch the surface of how I feel right now.

painted from scratch in Photoshop CS5
used my trusty Wacom Bamboo tablet

I think it's fantastic! There's one thing that bothers me a bit, and that is the focus of the stump. The lantern and Skull Kid are sharp, so anything within their field of focus should be sharp as well. Just a small tip to make it look even greater! Same with the grass from the lantern to the stump (distance-wise from what would be the "camera"). :)

I like the picture, but with the background blurred out, it feels like you didn't put much effort into it or are trying to hide it. Focus on the character is great, but the blurring is too much.

This is EXCELLENT! I agree there are some distracting elements happening in the grass. Try building your grass in layers. Make the grass in the same plane as the figure in focus, and blur it more as it gets close to the camera. There are some transparency things happening where grass is overlaying and it becomes distracting. Also: keep more of your grass growing in one direction with one a few bending back the other way, rather then haphazardly & evenly pointing in every direction.

I only say this all because the rendering of the figure is SO STUNNING! A bit more finness on the background & my eye would lovingly come to rest on this gorgeously rendered subject.

EXCELLENT WORK!!

the details on the main character is great but it seems as if the grass is either to repetitive or it seems that it may not match up with the whole picture because the trees are very smooth and not detailed while the grass is very detailed.. i would consider smoothing out the grass a little or at least near the ends to give the piece a nice sense of gesture and motion. it is a great piece either way though!

Very neat! My only suggestion is to not blur out your environment and grass, it makes it look...not of the scene in a way. :3

I think the blurring is absolutely necessary. It directs focus onto Skull Kid and not the rest of the forest.

I agree. It's reminiscent of bokeh in photography where the object of focus is sharp while the background and other irrelevant objects are blurred.
