Happy Fall!

Amidst falling leaves and colder temperatures, November always brings to mind one of my favorite things: The Legend of Zelda!  I know that sounds odd, but I had the great pleasure of participating in a Zelda-themed calendar contest in November 2011 and 2012.  While the contest is currently on hiatus, it's ingrained in me that November is unofficially "Zelda Art Month" and I just always have to celebrate my favorite fandom.

My 2014 piece is now finished and I'm pleased to share it with you.  Say hello to autumn Makar! 

Makar is a little woodland creature called a "Korok" from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.  His face is a green leaf and he makes adorable rattling sounds when he waddles around.  Zelda games are full of all sorts of cute and bizarre critters, and Makar is one of my all-time favorites from the series.  I thought it would be fun to celebrate the season with a festive fall Korok piece this year!

I hope you are having a wonderful autumn full of crisp breezes, snuggly blankets, and pumpkin-flavored everything!
