Wind Waker HD Fan Art Contest (Top 5 Winner!) by AmandaMullins Wind Waker HD Fan Art Contest (Top 5 Winner!) by AmandaMullins
CLICK FOR THE ANIMATION!

Wind Waker HD Fan Art Contest! (YOUTUBE)

So I'm pretty happy. I won the top 5 grand prize for the Wind Waker HD Fan Art contest held by Nintendo of America! (These are storyboards.)

Along with a Wii U and the Wind Waker HD, I will have my animation shown at the Symphony tour in Seattle during concert and in the lobby hall... which is of course amazing. But I'm honestly so honored. I only wish that every fan art submission for this contest could get the recognition they deserve. There is so much fantastic work.

If anyone sees this and also entered, feel free to message me or something and show me your work!!! I'm trying my best to dig around on the internet and find them.

I saw your post at Zelda Universe. Awesome work, lady! I love how you included many charming aspects/characters of the game: Medli, Makar, the fish dude, the wind waker, etc! Well done and congrats! ^^

I hope so too. They are probably a bit swamped with preparing everything to be ready to shown at the concert, I'm sure we'll see it soon.

You were supposed to receive an email, but I never got anything.
I'm having a friend go to the concert tonight, and he was going to take a video/photos of all of the entries :)

Woo hoo! :woohoo: Congratulations! There's something about your amazing drawings and the stories you create that makes me feel that life is an adventure. It's the same feeling I get whenever I watch one of Hayao Miyazaki's movies or read one of his manga. :D You are extremely talented, especially in making your audience feel a wide variety of emotions all the way from the Tuip Soldaat story to The Fox Child, and I really applaud you for that. :) Keep up the awesome work!

This is lovely! I'm amazed you managed to make this in the short time they gave us. It's short but it's still amazingly well drawn and animated n I'm really happy that you were one of the top 5 winners! I placed top 50 and I'm already jumping with joy, I can imagine how you must be feeling :]

Congratulations to you too how AWESOME! You can imagine... I started working on it on the 31st from scribbles on paper to rendering the AE file. I pulled an all nighter until 7:30 am on the 2nd... I am by no means an animator, but it's something I really want to go forward with.

 I just knew I had to do it, I would die if I didn't at least try. This game means way to much for me.

I ignored the contest for a few days, but then I decided what the hell, I got nothing to lose! So I entered it. Animation is no easy work so I'm surprised you pulled this off. Great job on making something simple yet in a beautiful style! By the way, which version of the theme song did you use to go with your animation?

:iconamandamullins:
AmandaMullins Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Thank you, it means a lot coming from you!

I used the song from the soundtrack "Makar's Prayer" for some reason I've always loved that one little song! And it worked since it was short. I had no choice but to keep it simple, haha.

I'm happy you entered and are getting your work shown as well. It's very beautiful. : )

That's fantastic; congratulations. Did you already have a Wii U, or will this be your only one? (...I'm not sure how to phrase this sentence in such a way that it implies that only one is the best option. >_>)

Haha, you're fine. I did not have a Wii U, so this is obviously fantastic for me. I can't wait to play it. : )
