New and improved! :la: Because nothing says "you are important to the story" better than a hand-painted portrait in a snazzy carved frame! I am a dummy!

About the Piece:

The 2nd of two total faux-paint portraits I wanted to "upgrade", this revision of the original Faux-Paint Midna portrait is the most dramatic change (imo) but also the most subtle. The original portrait I uploaded on Oct 28, 2013 had absolutely zero shading or highlighting of any sort and thus rendered it very flat in a lot of areas. My biggest goal in these revisions was to give more depth and detail, so a lot of shading, highlighting, and gradient usage was used to do so. Similar to the Princess Zelda portrait, I wanted this to be more dramatic and darker overall since the Twilight Princess story is both of those things. Midna is a princess in her own right and also comes from a dark world - literally - so her portrait needed to be a bit darker and heavier than the others. A lot of the differences in this portrait are ones I feel that are somewhat subtle but make all the difference: the gradients on her eyes, eyeshadow, lips, and skin are not really blatant but really help transform the look from how it was originally. I really like how this came out and I think it's cool to see just how different the two pieces are when you look at them side-by-side! :D I know a lot of people enjoyed the original Faux-Paint Midna, so I hope you all enjoy this updated, framed version too! :heart:

Your revisions paid off love; the first one was lovely, but this one feels like a true painting you would see hanging in Hyrule Castle. You captured her last, melancholic smile beautifully here; I'm practically in tears just looking at it.

Your comment is really the top praise I could have hoped to hear when making the revisions on this piece, so I'm beyond relieved and flattered to hear a fellow LOZ/Midna fan say that. :worship: I was aiming for all of those things and I'm really happy that you think I was able to achieve it. :heart: I'm thrilled you like this piece even more than the first and thank you for such a great compliment. :love:
