this wip is saved as “HAAAAAAAAANDS.jpg” bc i got balthazar’s there right away and i’ve done nothing since but try to get the other two. that’s it. it’s taken 5x as long everything else in this pic so far
i literally just want to draw cass’ hand on top of balthazar’s, why is this so!!!!!! hard!!!!!!
Once you’ve crossed the Tanagar Canyon into the northwest of Hyrule, you’ve entered Rito territory. The temperate Tabantha region is their homestead, but they maintain the frigid Hebra mountains to the north as well.
Their largest village is quite vertical, the central roads built to wind around several enormous rock columns that rise out of Totori Lake. There are foot paths from the cliffs below for the sake of flightless travelers, but it’s a steep walk nonetheless
and unfortunately, horses do not hike, so Cass has to leave his at the stables below.( Read more... )
so i finished reading the baten kaitos lp and…………..i truly did not realize how much i’d forgotten about the story. i feel terrible cause it’s an all time fave but then again, i’ve only ever played it all the way through once (it’s VERY long)
anyways point being my character placement is all screwed up now lmao
like just for one example i remembered not one but TWO characters as dying who do not, in fact, die at all
which is great bc their deaths were pointless and i was gonna rewrite that, but then why did i think they died in the first place??
hey just for fun, who wants to brainstorm what kind of bones rito balthazar would have: birb, mammal, or both (if even possible)?
i’ve been reading about bird skeletons bc i thought, if bird boned, balthazar would be lighter and more fragile than cass but in fact! i am wrong on both counts!
bird bones are thinner (and rounder) than mammals’ BUT they are also much denser, making them stiffer and potentially stronger than ours
the higher density also closes the gap in weight, meaning cass & balthazar’s skeletons would weigh pretty much the same even if one is all mammal and the other all birb
i just wanna decide which one makes sense
Well anyways, I’ve never had a proper Legend of Zelda AU before, just vague spinoffs based on aesthetics I love (like the Twilight Realm)
but I thought Balthazar would look amazing as the Rito Champion, striding along atop Vah Medoh.
Like Revali, he would’ve learned to control it quite quickly. He bonded with it, to a certain extent. Vah Medoh is named after Lady Medli, an ancient Rito Sage for whom they all have great respect. Some even credit Balthazar’s phenomenal aerial skills and uniquely powerful updrafts to his possibly being her descendant.
So when Ganon appears, challenging Balthazar with his own specialities, throwing him around and cutting off his escape with tornadoes, shooting him down over and over with ranged attacks–
…Balthazar understands.( Read more... )
honestly to this day one of my biggest art frustrations is that i cannot recreate the way balthazar smiles at cass. like literally just the way balthazar looks at cass is in my top five fave calthazar things and i cannot put it in anything i do and i hate that more than i can say
