Duh nuh nuh nuh by Imson Duh nuh nuh nuh by Imson
So it's my brother's birthday today and he happened to be born a few days too early to get Skyward Sword for it. So to compensate, I decided to make a gift card to hold him over until the game arrives.

Naturally, I couldn't work on it while he was around, so I ended up working on this til three in the morning. It was seriously fun though. I made sure I got the correct colors, made sure Link looked like his in-game self. Mimicked the text boxes and made sure to figure out what the English font for the game looked like. (I realised afterwards that this is the dialogue box and not the "item info" box. But I like this one better, so it's all good.)

So now it's just to wait till the 18th. Naturally, I'm going to steal the game if it ever gets within my vicinity. I call it a work hazard.

Enjoy!

Nice! The only mistake I can spot is Link's hat being too long, but it's such a great drawing!

Can't help it. I like dangly, impractical, overly elongated, sock hats. And sound effects. Let's not forget sound effects!

I can honestly tell that you worked very hard on the colors and the style in this. It looks so much like the game. ;3

It honestly didn't take that long. Zelda is sort of a casual obsession of mine, so it kind of goes on auto-pilot.

I have to say that is one of the cleverest and most time intensive things I have ever heard. I couldn't tell that the text was inaccurate. Well done on the pastel-styled artwork and realistic Link. My brother never would have gotten something like that from me. Bravo.

Don't we all wish that chime would play when we got something of value, with our own little transparent textbox floating around?
Then again, it'd get annoying hearing that all the time on payday....
