Even though it doesn't really suggest any particular Zelda game, for whatever reason this picture reminds me of the original. A game that I'd like to see more artistic interpretations of, given how abstract it is. Was there any particular game you were thinking of when you created this?
There wasn't any game in particular I was thinking of. I just wanted to convey that moment I feel just before I go into a dungeon on any game, not just Zelda. You have to double check you have potions and your weapons are sharp enough, provisions etc. for the journey ahead. The dark entrance is to convey the fear/mystery that may lie ahead. As for the rest I just wanted to experiment with the style/composition and I do love painting backgrounds. Hope that sums it up a little.
Would it be alright if this picture was used as a background picture in one of the specials on my main YouTube account's upcoming video, So Cold 10 Zelda Remixes Video XXIX: Back to the Best Special V? I will give you FULL credit for all your work. I do have to use a program to add a title to the picture, but this is all I will do.
