My own take on the famous character from The Legend of Zelda - Princess Zelda herself! The entire process took 4 weeks to complete from sculpting, modeling, retopoligizing, texturing and setting up in-engine. I love the series, and so I decided to take the concept used for the game Hyrule Warriors but add my own tweaks to it. The idea was to make her look a little more mature/serious, especially in comparison to the original concept. I used reference images of the Twilight Princess version of Zelda to do this as the game itself has a darker atmosphere. The colour purple to me seems both more royal and serious as opposed to the playful pink in the original image, so I changed the colour scheme and made her hair darker as fairer hair makes her look younger. I hadn't had much experience creating a hand-painted style character so creating Zelda in this style felt suitable and was great practice.
