About the Piece:

After a long, long, long hiatus...finally, a new piece! :heart: And what better for the piece to be inspired by than, of course, The Legend of Zelda?! :D I brainstormed this piece for a little while and never really had the time to sit down and make it until recently, but I'm glad I finally did. The mandala is traditionally defined as a "spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian/Tibetan religions, representing the universe" as well as "a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe." I love mandalas/mandala art, and knew I wanted to make a fandom-y one somehow. When it came to making a LOZ mandala, I chose to incorporate the races/cultures of Hyrule as well as the three Goddesses into the overall design via their respective symbols. Clockwise from top right are: Gerudo, Kokiri, Zora, Goron, Din, Nayru, Farore, and Sheikah. Located with pride of place is the Triforce, as well as the Hylian Crest circling the outside. I also sought to cut out heart shapes as they are surely reminiscent of the ever-so-important heart pieces! ;) With such an intricate design going on, I chose to put it against a large watercolor splash backdrop and added a basic paper texture for some slight interest in the background. Overall, I really like how this came out and was glad to have had the time to finally get back into art again. I hope you guys like this newest piece and thank you all for your patience! :worship:

Looks pretty neat.
You put a lot of  representative details on it, that was clever!
The thing that I like its the color effect, it give it a cool appearance to the whole mandala.

Gorgeous<3 I love the colors and how you combined all these familiar icons from the game. I really love how this mandala resembles a flower that blooms because of what the goddesses left behind.

Okay, I loved this from the moment I saw it, but as I read the description and noticed all the little symbols you snuck into this I was blown away. This is beautiful and so creative! Everything fits together beautifully and the way you incorporated so many little symbols that are in the games is very clever. Love it! And I'm so glad to see your art again! :heart:
