3DS painting: The Wind Waker by Alyboxie 3DS painting: The Wind Waker by Alyboxie
Click colorslive.com/details/195734-… to see this being sketched up to the 6 hour limit.

~Yay! Best this week on the Colors! Gallery :D

This is a scene from 'The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker'. I drew this on my 3DS using an application called 'Colors! 3D'. This is my first drawing using the app; I wanted to draw something I love - this was the first thing that came to mind :)

It took a long time, I'm not exactly how long, but I think it was around 25 hours. I did it over a week. It is not traced; I never trace things, I just used a screenshot as a reference. I added a LOT of detail (I used the smallest mostly transparent brush setting the most) I even wanted to add more detail, but the brush didn't go any smaller; I probably overdid it :P you can't really see the details anyway :P

Overall, I enjoyed drawing it :) - the app was very easy to use and I felt comfortable using it; however, I found that it was easy to lose your work (especially after working for 6 hours) and of course not being able to use the undo button after 6 hours becomes annoying, but not too challenging. At one point I lost a lot of my work because I played the video of the sketch up to the 6 hour mark, then selected 'continue painting', became confused as to why all the rest of my work wasn't there, and clicked the back arrow :P anyway, I didn't give up :) I learned to make copies more often :P

Wow! Thank you, everyone, for your comments; I really do appreciate every single one and I love hearing your feedback! Also, thank you to all the groups who helped me by requesting this :) (I don't think I've ever had so many group requests 0.0). I'd also appreciate it if you could like this on colorslive.com/details/195734-… since I put so much effort into drawing it! I'm so happy my first 3DS drawing got into 'best this week'! :'D

Well it's pretty damn awesome all the same it's just his mouth is a little disturbing... his shield looks good though

Alyboxie Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, thanks :) I did try multiple times to fix the mouth - the thing is, it has a very thin outline around it. It also has a tongue, so whenever I wanted to make any changes to it, I'd have to redo the entire thing because the smallest brush setting on Colors! 3D simply isn't small enough! :P I didn't think it was worth spending hours to fix little things like that. I ended up making Link's features too large for his face, because that was the only way I could fit in the necessary details, but of course you would notice it since you have this as your desktop picture :) I hope the mouth doesn't disturb you too much! :P

The only thing wrong with it is Link's face but apart from that it looks almost identical

I know; I found that I couldn't zoom in enough to do Link's face and the shield perfectly - I was making the pixels dance with each other until they got to almost the right spot. I don't think it's possible to do on Colors! 3D - especially Link's mouth.

haha :) it's always fun to watch those videos. Too bad I took more than 6 hours to finish it though :P I just wish I did all the exciting bits first (like Link and the King of Red Lions), but I'm used to painting the background first, like I do in real life paintings :P I'm glad you enjoyed it though!

You should get it! It's very easy to use, all skill level friendly and it's cheap too - you can buy it on the e-shop; it's called 'Colors! 3D'. If you want to ask any more questions about it, I'll answer them :)
