Serenade of Water by ErikShoemaker Serenade of Water by ErikShoemaker
A tribute to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I: Song of Storms [link]
II: Serenade of Water

This is Princess Ruto from the Zoras.
My second entry for =freaky665's Dreams and Fantasies-Contest: [link]

I personally really like the smooth and soft look of this. It's mostly photomanipulated while her head is painted with reference from: [link]
Hope you like it. :)

About the race of Zoras:
Just before the forbidden Lost Woods, there was Zora's Domain. It was from here that all the water in Hyrule began its journey along the perimeter of the country, proving nourishment to all life forms before coming to rest at Lake Hylia in the south-west. The guardians of this water were the Zora; part human and part fish, the Zora could spend only limited periods of time outside of water. The Zoras worshipped their guardian spirit, a large fish named Lord Jabu-Jabu, and held as their hidden treasure the Spiritual Stone of Water, or the Zora Sapphire.
The Zora threatened drought or impure water to all of Hyrule should any race dare oppose their wishes.

My friend sent me this drawing after I mentioned that I've had the biggest crush on Ruto since I first played Ocarina of Time way back when. Your art is amazing! Keep it up!

So amazing. I used this as an example of a successful composition in my Digital Imaging Fundamentals class for DeVry University and put credit so that my classmates could also browse your magnificent work.
I am playing a Zelda game right now and this was very nostalgic.

...........................................That is stunning, and amazing, you feel so sorry for her now that you look back, even though she was really annoying in game, I like how you took the setting from the sub-boss room in the Ice Cavern, and you've taken this to the tiniest detail, it's incredible
