The Wind Waker: Earth Temple by Purrdemonium The Wind Waker: Earth Temple by Purrdemonium



Tribute to Earth Temple from TLoZ: The Wind Waker.

Note #1 - Master Sword on the picture in not the final version of the sword in the game, that's why it looks how it looks.

Note #2 - Watch me to make me want to draw Dragon Roost image.

Note #3 - I like Castlevania music.

Note #4 - I am using Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Bamboo tablet.

Note #5 - There's no Note #6

The Legend of Zelda Nintendo

It's an incredible art, i sure never played Wind Waker for myself but i love the game style that remember paintings.
The way you made it, small and detailed. I love the Legends of zelda enemies with this Wind waker styled painting.
And i wan to to know how you make them? The programs i already know but how you make them so fine?
So detailed, can you please make a tutorial for the people to know how fine you do these stuff.
Please tell me how you make these and i want to know if photoshop CS5 works like CS3?
What do you think?

As a long-time Zelda fan, I appreciate the styles of all the games. While the Toon Link style is quite popular and thus common in fanart (I may have to reduce originality simply on that basis, sorry), very rarely do I see it replicated so exactly, so points on technique for that. Any Wind Waker fan can instantly recognise all the elements to this drawing, which is detailed without feeling cluttered. I noticed you had applied the WW style to other Zelda fanart (namely Majora's Mask), which I personally find a more technically impressive achievement than Wind Waker fanart. Overall, very nice picture, and I may have to give your gallery a bit of a look-see! :D

Great job! The Earth Temple was my favorite dungeon in WW!
TyphonDestroyer Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015
Toon Link must have a different opinion than me. He must not like the Earth Temple. Dumby. He should like the best dungeon in that game.

I love this image, its so amazing and detailed. This is also one of my favourite dungeons in the game.

Awesome, I always thought Medli had a really cool looking design, and I love how this kind of looks like a Portmanteau drawing.

Best temple in the history of all temples.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

Reminds me of how difficult I first foundthe temple and the fun you can have controlling another character that can fly
No-0ne-Home Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
I miss playing this DX It's a really great game!
UseTheBrakes Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Well, technically, if you beat the Wind Temple first, the Master Sword will look different. I don't know if the gem glows or the wing things go out, though. Either way, if you want a laugh, Chugga's playthrough of this dungeon is full of terrible puns.

Amazing job! this is very cool! :D
skilarbabcock Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looks exactly like the official art. Can you do one with Him with the mirror shield, Final master sword and in holding it in the air like in the castle with the stature of the old link
Purrdemonium Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Maybe someday, right now I'm working on Wind Temple tribute. = ]
CatriamFlockentanz Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012
Ahh the earth temple ("Tempel von Himmel und Erde" in einigen deutschen Versionen) one of the best Zelda-temples EVER!
missituk Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
You really captured Wind Waker's art style!
SophieThereseMiller Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing! I love this so, so much, all your artworks are exquisite.
Darkeiya Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If I didn't know any better, I'd say this looked like official Wind Waker artwork. Very impressive!
AlexNozop Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Hello. Could I ask you something?

For the lineart, do you use the Pen tool or you do it freehand?

PD: I'm Spanish, so, I'm sorry if my English is not so good.

Thanks! =)
Purrdemonium Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Freehand all the way sir, aaand don't worry - your english is just fine. On the other hand, I'm from Poland and my english suck monkey f***, though, ahahaha! (...) :|
AlexNozop Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Cool, and you do'em directly on your PC? Or first you draw at paper, scann,and paint on photoshop over it?

A lot of questions, I know ^^; but I'm here, at DeviantArt for learning =)

Thankies again!
Purrdemonium Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Depends, sometimes I'm doodling on the paper, usually when I have "quick idea" in my mind and I want to see if it'll work. When I like it, I scan trying to achieve the final shapes/proportions/composition etc. on my PC. =]
AlexNozop Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Thanks a lot =)
Respect =P
Purrdemonium Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, I'm glad you consider my art qualitative. ;P
AlexNozop Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Dude, your art kick ass.
Purrdemonium Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well, I believe. Main reason why ppl are asking for the commissions. @_@
I always liked this temple the best in TWW. And nice attention to the fact that the Master Sword's not got the power to repel evil and has its wings tucked in.

This is EPIC XD

mmm... I just have to say this is FREAKIN awesome! I LOVE that you're respecting wind waker style and you are making a tribute in such an amazing way
Just-Me143 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You've seriously mastered the WW style! I LOVE IT!!!!!! :D
PokePowerGirl100 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

...but dont u find it a little ironic that Medli-- a flying bird-girl-- is the sage of the Earth Temple, while Makar-- a plant/land-creature-- is the sage of the Wind Temple???? :/
FrannyKawaii Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I was playing the Earth Temple today...and I hated it! :frustrated:
But, however, I do like your picture. :)
