I'm here to punch you in the feels.

Or give you nightmares. Whichever comes first. :confused:

For those wondering what on earth this ungodly scene is, this is the cursed family from Kakariko Village, from the video game The Legend of Zelda ~ Ocarina of Time. Curse seems to have been lifted from some of the kids, but.... looks like dad's still.... well. I'm sure you get the picture.

It was in my head, and it wanted out. Three days and some severe nocturnalism. And graham crackers.

I'm happy with this. Way too much fun with the lighting in this one. Yay burn and dodge tools. :heart: Might put up some WIPs later.

[EDIT 2013-05-28] - WIP now available for your viewing pleasure! :D

Killed 100 Gold Skulltulas and broke the Curse!!

What's your kill count? :eager:

(/OAO)/ Why would you do such a thing to my feels!?
BUT... Absolutely fan-TABULOUS work in this, hehe! :D
I loved the little dance they did when you lifted the curse, it really makes you smile! :)
(We both lifted the curse! It's such a happy thing! Go you!! :aww:)

Because feels feel best when they've been squeezed until they BLEED! :iconkiralaughplz:

Ah, but seriously, I just love reading way too deep into things and.... gosh this family's predicament.... just kills me, man. :saddummy:

Thanks so kindly for taking a look.  :aww:

And huzzah for killing all the spiders! :eager: I shall add your icon to the list!  :D

And I completely understand. :nod:
You can tear yourself apart with even the most two-dimensional of characters if you think long enough.

And absolutely!

Eeeee~! Thank you! :D
That makes me happy!
You are so super kind. :eager:

Ow! right in the feels!

This is beautiful by the way, I've noticed a lot of people try and draw the gold skulltulas, as creepy as possible, I really love this, and your lighting just beautifully captures it all. 

Sad no one really focuses on the family itself rather than just killing the spiders to get a bigger wallet

Late reply is late! :noes:

Thank you so much, friend! :D I'm glad you enjoy my take on this family. :) Because seriously it must be so awful for them! :noes: *lol* I read the game way too deep. :XD:

Thanks again! :hug:

This is pretty darn amazing haha I never see art of these guys and this is such a touching piece and really good too. Love the shading and lighting.

Thanks so much!  :aww:  Haha, I love thinking waaaay too deeply about some side characters.  :)

One of the most rewarding things was seeing him kinda dance after he was freed from the curse. Made it worth it, I think.
Great picture! And all of the feeeeels
Contraltissimo Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
Haha thanks so much!  Glad you like!  :D

Aoh, yes, he just looked so happy didn't he?  Ahhh.... :aww:  So you've broken the curse before?  :)

It's such a great concept for a picture though! You deserve all the cookies!

And, of course! The spider hunt was a painful thing, but it was part of doing 100%!
