From ZU’s own insanely talented EternaLegend is this portrait of Princess Hilda from A Link Between Worlds. Hilda is arguably one of the most emotionally conflicted characters in the Zelda series. Her kingdom is falling apart, and she’s running out of options. EL did a beautiful job illustrating the princess’s inner turmoil. The desperation is apparent in Hilda’s eyes. She’s found a way to save Lorule, but is she willing to do so at the expense of others?

My name is Princess Hilda, and I have failed you in every way.

    My God. This is fantastic.

    That’s beautiful, the whole scene looks amazing! For some reason I really like that mist like thing that comes out of the staff, it’s a tiny detail but adds so much to the art.

      I thought so too. I don’t know exactly how to describe *what* it does, but it just really adds to the depth of the moment. It becomes not just a picture but an actual scene.

    I absolutely adore the coloring, the composition and her expression. It looks fantastic. The only thing that bothers me is the somewhat weird position of her head. It looks like her neck is a little stretched. But that’s just me, and this still is a gorgeous painting.
