Link and his giant red bird from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
I have to admit, I have been dying to paint this bird ever since I saw the trailers. This piece is also a bit of an apology for the sheer depressing ANGST of the previous painting.
This was painted entirely in The Gimp 2.4.7, and it took around 6 hours.
This time I went 100% painterly Skyward Sword-style. No lines! I am extremely satisfied with the result.
Totally gonna cosplay Skyward Sword Link for A-Kon 2012. Yup. No idea how to make chain mail, though. Or sew. D: I guess I'd better learn, huh?

EDIT: Fixed the top of the bird's head, and the placement of Link's ear. NOW I am satisfied.
Link, his giant red Shoebill, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword are (c) to Nintendo.
