Spent a bit of time trying to make some nice looking straps. I’m mostly happy with them, and the gear/cylinder section. I’d like to smooth out the spiral groove on the star, and fix it up a bit. I’d also redo the gold section entirely (and that would require me to redo the most of the straps, but I’d be willing, if I had time).
I’m a big fan of Wind Waker. It was my first Zelda, and having played several of the hand-held installments, OoT, and SS, it’s still my favorite. There’s so much style in that game. Almost every where in the game is visually unique, and still so simplistic. I’ve been unable to even really start TP because of how visually off-putting it is to me.
Regardless. Bombs. I was looking for something simple to do, and you can’t get much simpler than a sphere, cap, and fuse. There’s also a weird render I got while originally trying to get the Outline effect to work. Thought it looked really weird but kind of cool.
So, Avatar-based inspiration hit again while watching an episode of The Legend of Korra. It seemed simple enough, like things usually do. It, of course, proved to be more difficult then initially though. I call it a monument, but I honestly don’t know what it is, or what the character (if it is one) on it means. The edges on everything seem to sharp, to me.
