Deceptive Depths by kyuumu Deceptive Depths by kyuumu
Yeah lamo title...but I couldn't do this one right to save my life!!
Anyway, here is the well...I had a request for it a while ago so here it be. Not sure what to say about it, I don't think I've posted anything young link yet...I've drawn him a thousand times but its all been manga style so it's harder to colour properly. This was another where I had a bunch of random picture and a vague idea but when I go to put it together on a canvas it just doesn't want to fit nor make sense...Luckily this one wasn't that bad...but still. The dead hand was a pain to do...couldn't figure otu thing's texture...not to mention I couldn't find a screen with its face so I kinda winged it from memory...but I remember it beign waaay freakier. I hated that thing...scared the crap out of me...but I think the ones in Wind Waker are worse... OoT is really a very sick game if you think about it. If it had the graphics at the time I bet the rating would have gone up.
Anyway I know probably no one remembers the head on the wall, the thing you play lulaby to to make the water go down, well that's what that is if you're wondering. My brother thought it was an evil demented emoticon. But I finally figured out a water reflect technique, which is really hard to see, but I'm proud of it if nothing else so I'm mentioning it. Then there's the bubble and yadada I couldn't find a screen of that either so burn me if it's wrong. I have this sick feeling in my gut that tells me it is supposed to be green.... TT.TT and I dont have zelda right now to go check...as*cough*hes... ahem. It's easily fixed so if the bubble is green, I'll go change it.
Well I'm done, sorry if someone was expecting something exceting like the spirit temple or something...but I still have to do the training grounds and the fortress *stress**rips out hair*

As the hero continues his quest, going down and down into the hell of darkness... Unaware of the danger that lurks in the shadows. Creeping... Creeping... Waiting for the right moment... It now has the hero in its grasp... Quickly making the hero lose his breath so it can be his last... What will he do? Has he given up or will he fight the lord of darkness and death?

Ugh. Bad BAD memories of the well. I used to watch my uncle play this game, and always hated when he had to go to this place.

The title's fine! Don't worry about it ^^ It's certainly creative, most people would have put "Young Link versus Dead Hand" or something equally uninspired.

Ah, the Dead Hand. The first time I encountered it, I stared at all those hands coming up from the ground like, "huh??" then of course I walk up to one of the hands and it grabs me...but actually, although I found it strange and bizarre I never found the Dead Hand particularly scary (what I found more scary was the fact that the walls in any Dead Hand room had billions of tiny faces on them). In fact I think when you hit its head and it runs away from you it's downright hilarious, like, "hah hah, fear me and my Kokiri sword XD". It was actually one of the only minibosses I actually enjoyed fighting, most of the others I found either annoying (Lizalfos) or downright harder than bosses themselves (Giant Octorok).

The coloring is absolutely gorgeous. It's dark and creepy but still light enough that we see what's going on. It's kind of weird how the scene seems framed by things that weren't anywhere near the Dead Hand room, but I guess that's you being artistic ^^

The Dead Hand had a bit of a more skeletal face; it had nostrils, and I believe the teeth were longer and the jaw was lower on the face. Also I think it was more white than it was blue. Also the hands went more for the head than the neck, but I guess it trying to strangle him does make sense. I think, either kid Link was smaller or Dead Hand was bigger, probably a combination of both. I remember that although it was only a few heads taller than adult Link, the darn thing towered over kid Link. And the hands on the creature itself, it held more in front, kind of like a praying mantis.

I love how it's like you're looking at the scene through the Lens of Truth, however no one's supposed to be able to get the Lens until the Dead Hand's defeated; who has it and why are they just watching calmly instead of helping the poor kid? I'm being a bit too literal XD you may ignore that if you want.

The thing I wonder most is where Link's Kokiri sword and Deku shield are. I know he didn't just walk into the room unarmed (who would?) did the Dead Hand steal them from him?

This is awesome. If this game had like TP graphics it would have been insane! I mean, I started playing it again, because I jsut wanted to(too awesome!) and forgot how the graphics were, but they still managed to make things like this to creep you out beyond belief.

oh...well i don't mean to be rude, but why can't you do that yourself? save it, throw it on an photoeditor and crop it...unless you dont have a program that can make it a small enough file size? Let me know, and so in which case I have to know what exactly you want, although ill probably end up sending like four different ones anyways...
