LoZ: Ruto Portrait by Denimecho LoZ: Ruto Portrait by Denimecho
Portrait of princess Ruto from Ocarina of Time.
Was actually meant to be part of a doodle-dump but I liked it too much to use it for just that.

I know, but then again those eyes aren't like the ones on the sides of her head.

Well I have no time for requests I'm afraid and especially now when I have to gather money to move out. I have opened up for commissions though if you're very interested in seeing her drawn by me? But that is as much as I can offer D:

I never said anything about requests, I just said it would be nice to see her from you, that's all. It was usual DA comment I didn't expect reply at all.

Oh my goodness, I just love everything about this. :D What a lovely portrait! :la:

I love your take on the shape and coloring of her face and fins.... and also, I've never seen those eyes on the side of her head more.... pronouncedly drawn. Love the little lashes. :giggle: Actually looking at this makes me wonder what visual input must be like for some Zoras.... if it's more than just binocular....

And I love her grin. :D Something about it, maybe the little gap in the teeth, maybe the corners of her mouth, just really reflects her willful, headstrong, mischievous personality. :D

This is just lovely all over. :clap:

I tried to make the smile as much "her" as possible. I actually tried to make it look like her upper lip is curving so that you can't see it from this angle. When drawing characters like Ruto, I try to make them stand out and have traits that might seem a little less beautiful than a princess should be, while still maintaining said beauty. Hope I suceeded : D

Haha! Yes yes I see it! :la: Oh my gosh, yes you totally pulled it off. :D The little traits of plainness or quirkiness on her otherwise beautiful person. Gads, man, it just BLEEDS character. :D

Oh man, I love this! She looks great. She looks spunky and mischievous and like she always gets her way, which is pretty much exactly how she was in the game. Fantastic, considering the original polygons weren't nearly that expressive. :D Nicely done!

When I draw a character I love I always try to capture their personality in their expressions and redesign (if redesigned). Ruto is my favourite female character of all time, so she had to be perfect

Oh gosh, I'm serious when I see this is the best Ruto portrait I have ever seen. It just...this is how I picture Ruto in reality. Lanky, angular, and...with an expression that explains why future Link incarnation may wish to stay at the shallow end of the Goddess fountain. ...which reminds me. I'd love to see your take on the Great Fairies from OoT.

By the way, that might sound weird, but I really love this.

I have been considering it, since the great fairies look kinda awful in the game, so maybe I could change that XD
