TP: The Edges of Faron by VesteNotus TP: The Edges of Faron by VesteNotus
From Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, this is near the warp spot in the South Faron Woods.

This is among the many projects I had to complete for my art finals. This was done for my Painting IV landscape class. We could paint any landscape we wanted, including invented landscapes. I just happened to be smitten by the landscapes of TP.

This painting was most fun because it was done entirely with a single palette knife. wahoo!

And if you're interested, I just got my grade for the class: A! ^____^


EDIT: Sorry for the terrible photo-collage of it. It was just too hard to get the whole piece in one photo. Please please full-view!!

Oil Paint on 4 canvases
Total dimentions = 10' wide, 1.5' high
Total Time Spent: 12 hours (roughly)

wow! thank you! It's really hard to get a sense of scale and everything when it's on the internet... I daresay it's cooler to look at in person, but then again, most paintings are

Thank you! I'm glad you like the colors especially, because that's the thing I tried to concentrate on the most.

This was painted for a landscape class, so I couldn't put something in it that would distract from the meaning/gesture of the landscape... which is unfortunate, because I think the Goat Spirit would have looked really cool in the painting! :-P

TP is a fantastic game. best plot line of the zelda games, in my opinion. My boyfriend beat it last weekend and I'm still riding the high of the game..
Beautiful game though, isn't it?

I'm glad you like my painting!
