By these Merciful Wings

Last week, we began going through Mercy’s Wips from Yet Mercy Intervened:

But he hadn’t gotten his wings, his true wings anyway–so let’s fix that:

 

Now, to make Mercy aloft:

Like all aerial savvy beings, from airplanes to hawks and even butterflies, Herm-I mean Mercy got a second pair of smaller wings, namely on his feet:

Now to get these hands–well, for Mercy to give Justice–you get the point:

Lastly, a few summary shots:

Next week, we will return back to Grace!

Mercy Made

 

Another week, another set of Yet Mercy Intervened Wips–today, we’ll focus Mercy:

From above, Mercy  descends.  But before he could stand to Justice’s righteous freshness and take the brunt of Justice’s justified strike of judgment, he needed a few details–first, those flowing locks:

As all hair is composed of many strands, even representations of such are complex–TLDR, more hair, more details:

Now for those true colors and real curves of curls:

Lastly, a few more details and golden tint on Mercy’s hair:

 

Next week, we will continue to soar with Mercy as he gets his wings–no red bulls involved, though 😉

Clothed in Grace and Justice

Last week, we began going through the wips for my latest project, Yet Mercy Intervened, ending with the blocking of the characters:

Now onto those details!

 After blocking out Justice’s general form, I set up the folds in flowing clothes:

Next, I turned to Grace:

Here, I mainly focussed on the base of her hair:

Next, to her clothes:

Lastly, few more details–arms, eyebrows, and more clothes details:

Come back next week for more details of Justice!

On Justice’s Right Side

Recently I finished my picture Yet Mercy Intervened, as seen below:

However, it started with a few simple blocks:

My inspiration for the picture style came from an experimental coloring of weeping angel I had worked on previously:

Next, I blocked out Mercy:

Then, Sinner and Grace  . .

 

Here I realized Justice would be better suited to be on the right side, so I flipped the picture (Also blocked out Love on the left) :

Then I started the rough details for Justice (and Mercy when I got bored 😉 )

 

That’s it for this week–next week, come back for more!

Sneaking in the Twilight

As promised, let’s check out them shoes!

So for the shadow beast’ headdress, I already did a post on how it was made:

So after finishing the shadow, I began the general form:

Originally, I was going for a darker tone, but I switched it up for Twilight glow blues on white/gray:

Just a few finishing touches:

Midsummer’s Knight

So we’ve gone through the burly Moblin and stylin’ hipster Stalfos–let’s complete this trifecta with the greatest warrior of them all, the Darknut.

 

This brother will mess you up.

Daddy Darkness knows this well as quite often Darknuts are a mid-dungeon boss, which is only surpassed by the late game trial of trying to beat three at the same time:

But this brother also knows how to chill, knocking back a green potion while overseeing a colossal wallet of Rupees for Ganon.

Though Darknuts tend to be heavily armored as seen in my pictures  A Link to the Red, Black, and Blue, So Crest Darkness in its Prime, Hark, the Night Crest Dark, and Anytime, anytime, I’m Waiting . .  ., this brother is off duty chilling, wearing the flyest gear.

Let’s start with those sneakers:

These are the limited edition Twili Shadows by Fae Footwear. There will be another post detailing their creation, so we’ll move up and cover the rest of the brother’s gear, starting with the rupee bag:

As Ganon’s fiercest fighter, this brother maintains a “Sun out, Guns out” mentality and physique with lit tatoos:

The chain he is stunting has the only important triangle of the Triforce–power, as wisdom and courage are for wimpy elf-like teens:

As a knight, he has a Knight Crest emblazoned belt to hold up his fashionable purple Lorulean Tunic:

And finally the brother by himself:

That concludes our trilogy of Ganon Gentlemen, chilling and relaxing in between sessions of Link beatdowns. But stay tuned for more as we explore the rest of the things that went into making this picture.
