Did You Forget? It's your Birthday! - Wind Waker Link Conversion (Super Dungeon Explore)
I eventually got the model, but didn't really know what I wanted to do with it, because it felt too far removed (presumably for legal reasons) from the original concept. It sat in my pile of grey plastic for some years, glanced at. While I'd done a little cartoony work, with an earlier Super Dungeon Explore commission and for MYTH, the former was an absolutely terrible commission (it's been long enough that I can write about it without a rant: I really enjoy working with just about all my clients, but I got in a pretty bad mood when I was threatened over a small number of toy soldiers), and the latter was a bad gaming experience, so I'd spent a lot of time away from the genre/style.
But, returning to my intro, this year, for my sister-in-law's birthday, I felt it was finally time to step outside my comfort zone, and work with a very different palate and style than I was used to, and pulling this together for a gift was enough of a push to actually get the project started.
