I like to imagine this picture takes place in the fixed timeline in the ending of OoT where Ganondorf doesn't seize the throne and thus no further bad things happen to Zora's Domain. It always bothered me that you couldn't properly save them in the bad future.
I love how you executed this piece. Detailed without being overly detailed, beautiful forms that are filled in with some simplistic gradients. The colours and their saturation just makes this piece work beautifully.
This is just beautiful, I love the colours, the peaceful emotion, everything! It's so cute the way Link's quietly feeding Jabu-Jabu the fish sandwich instead of mentioning it to Ruto that he doesn't eat fish like that.
It's good to see Link actually spending time with Princess Ruto since, in my opinion, even if OoT gave you the option to do so, I wouldn't have taken it (she's just not a very nice character to me). But everyone deserves a chance, so that makes this picture even cuter and more special. My only concern is that Ruto is eating a fish sandwich. Does that mean she's basically eating her own kind, sort of...?
I completely love how you coloured this. The lighting on Lord Jabu-Jabu is really getting to me. The teeth and scales and eyes are absolutely perfect and brought out in such a simple-looking way. I can't even begin to express the goodness of this picture.
