The great flood by Gabriela-Birchal The great flood by Gabriela-Birchal
"Evil loomed over the land of Hyrule once again and chaos prevailed. The king and all the people from Hyrule prayed that the gods help them, and thus the land was flooded keeping the evil underwater while the survivors fleed to the highest mountains."

Done for the :iconthehistoryofhyrule: 2013 calendar contest

I took a crazy amount of time to come up with this piece, although I still see a lot of laws in it I'm happy about how tackled this challenge and I will improve more.

Thanks for the support!

I think it's a fantastic representation of the necessary desecration of the Country of the Goddesses. I, for one, fail to see any laws.

How heartbreaking it must have been to watch the land you love be destroyed like that! What a heartwrenching piece, so filled with desperation and hopelessness!

Love it. It has a sense of sadness for obvious reasons, but the colors help to establish the horror of the situation.
And, I don't know if you did it on purpose, but the small ray of light shining down on the Triforce gives me the impression of the closing door of hope Hyrule had.

Magnificent!

Yes, I wanted to portray a moment of sadness and a desperate action to try to save Hyrule, I'm glad you could see all of that without me saying it =).

Thank you! :hug:

Amazing motive and perspective *u* I really like how you did the water... although I think it would have been better if it wasn´t so blurry but had some more crisp lines, but that´s just my opinion XD
All in all, really nice :3
