Purify by Blackash Purify by Blackash
My entry for the annual calender contest over at History of Hyrule.

To remember her original purpose and time as the goddess Hylia, Zelda must purify her body and pray at each of the goddess statues.

It took me a few seconds to realize that those birds are the colors of the goddesses :happybounce:

Thanks, I really giggled to myself over that a lot. I'm glad other people notice them!

This is an absolutely incredible piece :faint: The attention to detail in this is just breathtaking, and I really love the adult, more mature look to this Zelda! Again, with the details; her hair, her features, to the background she's submerged in is phenomenal. And her dress is perfect The folds look great and it's just the right amount of sheerness, to where it actually looks wet. 
I just cannot say enough about this piece, it's so stunning, you've really captured a moment, here! :love:

You are too kind thank you. I probably should've made her look younger but was in a stick with what you know area I think. I'm glad you like it thank you for the kind words!

Wow, such a serene moment! I really love how the water is interacting with everything, especially Zelda's hair and dress. Very floaty and magical. Zelda herself looks gorgeous...I wish my hair were as pretty as that T.T

Thank you kindly. I agree, I wish I had hair like that but only if it wasn't too much upkeep!
