David Cousens from PSDFan has posted a Photoshop tutorial describing the process through which he created a pretty impeccable work of art depicting Link in his Deku Scrub form from Majora’s Mask. The artwork is top-notch, but the tutorial is not for the faint of heart. If you’re not 100% comfortable in Photoshop and lack artistic skill, I wouldn’t give this tutorial a go for yourself – but for looking into the fanart-making process, Cousens’s tutorial shines. Anybody looking to create Zelda fan art – or any art at all – could use the tips presented in his tutorial. Even seasoned artists might find a few basics they’ve been overlooking inside.
