THE LEGEND OF ZELDA (hand drawn or hand painted)


Swap Due Date - March 15th
Signup - until full/March 15th
Withdraw - none, but please communicate
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 12
Medium - Hand Drawn/Hand Painted

I love the Legend of Zelda videogame series, so I thought it was the best theme to start my first SWAP!
And since last year was the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, and with the released Ocarina of Time 3D, Four Swords Anniversary and Skyward Sword, I thought it was just the best time for a LoZ swap.

For this swap, you can pick any characters, scenes from any game, from the original and first one to the newest Skyward Sword, and anything that can cross your imagination, as long as you remain in the Zelda universe!

Requirements:
*All card need to be standard 3.5" X 2.5" size, and each card must be sent in its own plastic sleeve.
*All cards must be original - no prints or copies!
*Hand drawn or hand painted only, please. Collage backgrounds are fine, but the main theme of the card must be hand-drawn or painted.
*Make sure you write your real name, username and SWAP name in the back of your cards, along with any other information you want.
*An host card is always appreciated (and will be treasured and I would be so happy), but not required!
*Send in only your best work!

Mailing and Postage:
*PM me for my address when you are ready to send the cards.
*Please include a LARGE address label with your address written clearly on it.
*All participants are welcome! Since I am international to most people, postage is optional. I will cover postage for both domestics and internationals, but stamps from your country are always welcome, as I can use them in other SWAPs I participate in.
*Please send your cards before the deadline or I will be forced to send them back to you unswapped. Please remember that I live in Italy, so it can take a while for your cards to arrive here.

Above all, have fun!!


*I will post to this thread and leave iTraders as I receive cards. Remember to leave Rep Points (you rock) for people you receive cards from and iTrader for the host (me) when you'll receive your cards!


You'll go bold when your cards are here!!

Participants:

Clopina
02-03-2012, 04:23 AM
Just checking in, I was wondering if anyone else started working on their cards :D
And I wanted to say that here snowed a lot, so mail has been left behind a bit... to those who sent their cards in, don't worry, they will arrive, they're just late for the snow. My postman never came this week. .____.

pixiecorpse
02-03-2012, 08:03 AM
I'm still working on my other cards, signed up to a LOT of swaps so doing bits of them all and getting the fast approaching deadlines done first. Oh and waiting for paint to dry is always a pain in the booty! :D
We had a little snow here not enough to stop our postman though.

Kalimara
02-03-2012, 10:49 PM
Here my cards,I hope you like them.
They are all in zelda skyward sword
Zelda, Fay, the cat, and cute Kikwi :)

Clopina
02-04-2012, 04:32 AM
Love your cards Kalimara!! I've finished Skyward Sword right yesterday, so I'm really happy to see some SS goodness :goofy:
I adore your Fi and your Zelda, and that Kikwi is just so cute! - and the Remlit is one of my favs in-game. Even if it gave me quite a scare the first time I met one at night.

Clopina
02-04-2012, 04:34 AM
pixiecorpse - I know what you mean, there are so many great swaps out here and I can't join them because I'm already in too many. And usually I work on another card while waiting for a part of the first one to dry, then go back to it. XD
Lucky you! We didn't have so much snow in years, so it took us quite by surprise.

pixiecorpse
02-04-2012, 04:49 AM
Wow! Those cards are great!
I did a little more last night, have a shield one and I think a night priestess or something I forget but she looks really cool.
I know what you mean Clopina, last night I added a wash to some, inked some, backed some others then started the process again. Hate the having to sit and wait so at least I got another 4 swaps finished and out of the way ready for a mammoth scanning session later hehe.
We're supposed to be getting a ton of snow this weekend, hope not will make school run a hearty task come monday lol. And even though our postmans still on the beat he's not been stopping at my door...I want post :D

Clopina
02-05-2012, 06:08 AM
Can't wait to see them! :D
I do the same! For the cards I create for a swap, I can say that I work on all of them at once, when I use watercolours or acrylics. XD And like you, I usually work on many swaps at once, so that makes from 8 to 12 cards done together (and a day or more gone for coloring, haha!).
I want mail too!! XD Today we have the sun, so let's hope it will melt away some snow! I can't stand it anymore.

pixiecorpse
02-07-2012, 03:41 PM
me too! I usually have an idea on which will be collage/acrylics/watercolours and have 3 separate boxes I cart around with me when I work hehe and I'm less likely to get something finished if I only had 1 swap to xdo, if its 3/4 I'll get them done its very odd....
anyway heres my other 2 I'm working on a top secret hostess card for you, I hope you like it.

Clopina
02-07-2012, 04:08 PM
Haha that's a great idea!! I have acrylics and watercolours in separate boxes too, since I usually use them for swaps. XD That works with me too, since I usually have more inspiration if I have to draw many different things at once.

And I love your cards!! I especially adore your dark Zelda one, and the details on that shield are just great! Can't wait to see them in person! <3
And thank you so much for working on a host card. That's really appreciated. :wubclub:

pixiecorpse
02-07-2012, 04:27 PM
Hehe that's why I joined up as it means I don't have to filter through all my ideas lol
And thank you for the compliment. And its the least I could do seeing as your hosting the swap :D just hope you like it :D

02-08-2012, 04:14 AM
ok i got my inspiration can i jump back in again

pixiecorpse
02-08-2012, 04:41 AM
Wow! Those are fantastic renren!!!! :D

Clopina
02-08-2012, 04:52 AM
renren - Your cards are so beautiful! I love your Saria, and you even drew Link with my fav tunic on :laugh: And I adore your soft coloring. Can I ask you what you use to color them? <3

Bluegrassboy - of course! Happy to see you back! Can't wait to see your cards.

And now we only have one spot left. Does anyone want to grab it? :P

renren16
02-08-2012, 05:06 AM
Thank you pixiecorpse and Clopina. :) I used Prismacolor colored pencils, and used white and colorless pencils for blending.
I bought the last 24 color set in a bookstore close to the university and I'm absolutely thrilled with it! I wish there's a store here selling individual colors, but I haven't found any.. :( And the huge sets are so expensive. Even if I want to buy sets on sale in Amazon, it would still be expensive when I add the shipping costs. x_x But I'm happy with my set now <3 Been experimenting with it for a few days :)

pixiecorpse
02-08-2012, 06:27 AM
I was thinking of getting some of those pencils but they are expensive :(

renren16
02-08-2012, 10:09 AM
pixiecorpse Yes, they are expensive but I read somewhere that it's a good idea to buy a few pencils at a time, so you can get the colors that you want when you need them. And it took me a while to save up for the set. I hope it lasts a long time :eek:

pixiecorpse
02-08-2012, 10:23 AM
That is a good idea, I generally use watercolour pencils, and I could do with buying a couple of replacements, getting a bit tiny! I'm tempted by those copic markers they look like fun they might have to be on the xmas list hehe

Clopina
02-08-2012, 10:57 AM
renren - Aww, I am trying to buy those colored pencils too! Here we have a store that sells individual pencils, but I don't know if they have Prismacolors too. I should go try and ask them, but like you say complete sets are so expensive... I need to gather enough money before... Won't be easy XD
and pixiecorpse - I'm tempted by those Copic Markers too, I'm really fascinated by them. I've found some pricing online, but they are like 40 for 12 markers. I guess they'll be on my Xmas list too.

pixiecorpse
02-08-2012, 12:42 PM
I know what you mean they do 5 or 6 packs too for 12 but if you want flesh tones and black and greys and manga that's 3 sets :o soon adds up...my mums going to get a BIG list :D

renren16
02-10-2012, 04:36 AM
I was looking for TLoZ images when I found this cute drawing of Princess Ruto and Link <3
http://stressedjenny.deviantart.com/art/Ruto-and-Link-159759532
The last time I played Ocarina of Time was 12 years ago, and I just got reminded of this part again <3 Anyone here played OoT too? :laugh:

Clopina
02-10-2012, 04:56 AM
Aaahhh that is so cute! Their expressions make me giggle :laugh:
I discovered the Zelda series with Twilight Princess in 2008, so I'm one of the last ones I fear. But as for now I've played that, OoT, Skyward Sword, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and I'm working on finishing Majora's Mask, Wind Waker and Link's Awakening. And then I'll try my hand at the others too. XD
I've played OoT like a billion times, both on my Wii (virtual console rocks! :laugh: ) and the 3DS version. It's still my fav Zelda game. XD

And some news: it's still snowing, but hopefully the postman will come today since there's less snow than before, or I'll have to wait monday. I hate this weather! :realmad:

pixiecorpse
02-10-2012, 06:01 AM
My sister loves zelda and has played a LOT of the games, I've played one of the earler ones I can't remember what it was called. And I tried to play the one with the train at the beginning and the cows get in the way on the ds but couldn't get poast that bit lol I'm a rubbish gamer :D
Boo for snow!!! We had a bit more last night just as it was all going away :(

Clopina
02-12-2012, 05:04 AM
ohoh you should go on with it, it's a really cute game! and I'm not much of a gamer myself, the Zelda games are ones of the few I play XD

Boooo! Can't stand snow anymore! :( But for some good news! The sun is melting away all the snow here :D Let's hope it will go on like that!

pixiecorpse
02-12-2012, 05:40 AM
Mine should be on their way in the morning hope you like the extra!
Its finding the time to do everything that stops me gaming, i love final fantasy but with 3 kids i cant give it the attention it needs lol
yay for melting snow! we had a little more on friday, im hoping its gone by tomorrow :D

Clopina
02-13-2012, 10:40 AM
Kalimara your beautiful cards are here - Thank you so much for the extra card and the postage!

and pixie - I love it, thank you so much!! Ohoh now I understand lol! :D Time can be pretty hard to find!

pixiecorpse
02-13-2012, 12:17 PM
Hehe glad you like it they're on their way! Should be there by the end of the week weather permitting ;)
Hehe yep you should see the state of our house when I'm painting too much lol

Clopina
02-14-2012, 10:14 AM
Bluegrassboy I've got your cards! :D Thank you for the postage!

Zelda, Fay, the cat, and cute Kikwi :)


Kalimara, I love your Kikwi! He's so cute! :)

katrinabean86
02-18-2012, 02:57 PM
I love the Kikwi :) Although it was a butt trying to find all of them when they were lost haha. On another note, I still haven't even beaten the first boss yet in Skyward Sword. I'm such a fail lol :p My arm always starts hurting and I give up hahaha

DreamingFox
02-19-2012, 08:12 AM
Is there sill a spot open..? i should definately have a few Zelda cards drawn and sent long before my dads bday! (:

Clopina
02-19-2012, 09:50 AM
Yes there is! Welcome aboard DreamingFox! ;)
And now we're full! Yay! :D

Katrinabean, I was grounded home because of the snow so I had all the time I wanted to finish the game! But yes, the first boss actually still gives me problem. It's so difficult, especially for me that I usually keep swinging the WiiRemote at random haha!

pixiecorpse
02-19-2012, 10:05 AM
That's another reason why I don't play games, mentally I feel like I should be able to do it because they're cute little cartoons and I just can't makes me a little grumpy,safer if I don't play :D
Have you still got lots of snow? Its like a cold spring day here even have washing on the line :D

DreamingFox
02-19-2012, 08:37 PM
Thanks, i got some ideas i shall get right onto! (:

Onaki
02-20-2012, 12:05 PM
Sorry about that Clopina but I have to drop the swap.
Thank you for having me :)

Clopina
02-20-2012, 01:19 PM
Aw ok Onaki, sorry to see you go! Hope everything's ok! :)

and pixie - nope, luckily we had a few sunny days and today it rained and so we're finally snow-free, yay! :jiggy:

pixiecorpse
02-20-2012, 01:50 PM
Yay! Snow free hopefully my cards will arrive soon :D

DreamingFox
02-20-2012, 05:14 PM
Started one lastnight, and finished today!
Wanted to do one with a ChainChomp, so i did i think i may just do some characters instead of tiny scenes now... lol


Can't show much detail, and would look better if i had a scanner... Here's a link to ref image: http://images.wikia.com/zelda/images/7/7c/GBC_Zelda_Links_Awakening_DX.png

And here's lineart and finished... Just Pencil, and a little colored pencil.

pixiecorpse
02-20-2012, 05:40 PM
They are very cute dreamingfox! Love the fact you added the gameboy :D fantastic!!!

DreamingFox
02-20-2012, 06:32 PM
:D Thanks, i tried!

bluesybreeze
02-22-2012, 07:34 AM
I see there is one slot left. Sign me up please. I have been a Zelda fan since the very first game.

DreamingFox
02-22-2012, 08:45 AM
Dark Zelda, Master Sword, and a SNES style view.
How are these?? Still need to back 2. Come to think of it, is crayon colored ok or do i need to re-do the one..? :embarrassed:
Just thought of it, if not it's ok i can do another as i have more ideas for cards of the theme. Just better to be 100% sure of guidelines before asking for your address to send off of course.


i really need to find where my colored pencils disapeared to...

Clopina
02-22-2012, 09:46 AM
Of course bluesybreeze, the last spot is yours! Happy to have you in!

DreamingFox - Those are lovely, and the one with the GameBoy is really original! I love it! :D And anything is fine, as long as it's hand-drawn. So why not crayons? I actually like using them.

DreamingFox
02-22-2012, 09:56 AM
Ok thanks. i just hate brain farts lol

And thanks, i tried to make something different, with staying true to the swap. :)

pixiecorpse
02-22-2012, 10:47 AM
I'm loving the texture from the crayon dreamingfox, thinking I might have to raid my kids stash to play with them :D

pixiecorpse
02-24-2012, 03:37 AM
Have you had any post yet clopina and more specifically have my cards arrived yet? :D

Clopina
02-24-2012, 04:29 AM
I've got some mail yesterday, but sadly no Zelda goodies :(
Hopefully all your cards will be here soon!

pixiecorpse
02-24-2012, 05:44 AM
No worries I thought I'd check there's still plenty of time :D and the weather there will have given the posties more work to do :D

katrinabean86
02-27-2012, 11:25 PM
Played Skyward Sword to get inspiration. Guess whaaaat! I beat the first boss! :jiggy: Anyway, haha, had to share. I'll be drawing tonight and tomorrow so they should be out in the next day or so.

katrinabean86
02-28-2012, 01:55 AM
Here are my first two :) I'll work on another one at least tomorrow but I'll try for a fourth if I have time. Btw, the Fi card says, "I detect a 95% chance of you failing miserably"

bluesybreeze
02-28-2012, 01:57 AM
Had some time this weekend and got to finish my cards - brought back lots of fun memories.

pixiecorpse
02-28-2012, 03:33 AM
Wow katrinabear and bluesybreeze those cards are awesome!!!

Clopina
02-28-2012, 04:38 AM
Wow, Katrinabean and bluesybreeze, amazing cards!!! I love all of them so much!

And congrats Katrina! I know for experience that the first boss is a pain. :goofy:

And - yesterday the mailman didn't even come here, hopefully today she'll bring something.

Clopina
02-28-2012, 09:39 AM

I came into this swap kinda late - I was so lucky to get an opening at the last minute. I gotta say that I love it and all the cards posted on here can go directly to my mailbox :D My cards are on the way and my heart in is Hyrule!

katrinabean86
03-01-2012, 12:28 AM
Last card :) Sorry I've been feeling to sick to make a host card and I don't want them to be late. I PMed you for your address so they'll be out tomorrow.

pixiecorpse
03-01-2012, 07:15 AM
He's great katrinabear! And he looks ready for action! Sorry your feeling unwell I hope you feel better soon :D

Clopina
03-01-2012, 11:46 AM
Katrina I love your last card too! Link looks so cool in there :D
And don't worry, ya know the host card is not required, but thank you for the thought! :D I'm just sorry you're feeling sick, hope you'll be better soon! <3
(and that gif is just to die for haha! Link's reaction there to Ghirahim is the same one I had when meeting him for the first time lol)

bluesybreeze - I'm really happy you joined in too! :D I love your cards and I can't wait to receive them!

But really guys, you're all so amazing! All the cards I've seen so far are just so beautiful.

pixiecorpse
03-01-2012, 12:30 PM
I just hope mine make it to you in time so I can share in the wonderful work! Crazy how the postal service works sent cards to san diego at same time n they took 2 days hehe! But the weather you've had won't help :D

Clopina
03-01-2012, 12:34 PM
Yeah that's just crazy pixie, I got cards from the other side of the world before yours who are like near me lol. Crazy postal service is crazy. :goofy:

But I'm sure they'll be here soon!

pixiecorpse

If they arrive before the cut off that will be great! But I'd be happy to know they got there either way and I wouldn't want them returned :D my best/worst postal story is my secret santa from canada,sent 21st oct I received middle of january hehe

Aw pixie, in the unlikely case that they'll take too much to arrive here, be sure that you won't be left empty handed. ;) (but I still hope that will NEVER happen)
omg really? Then I don't have to give up hope for a card that I'm waiting since middle of november XD

Awww thanks clopina but I don't mind...
I know its crazy! There's been a few others that have disappeared and I don't think I'll see them again, but its nice that sometimes they do eventually appear...:D

Aww they're just awesome Claudzie!! I love all of them! :D
The "real" Hylian Crest really caught my eye. That's really interesting, never thought of it. XD

I read somewhere that the winged part of the crest was supposed to be a loftwing, which is where they got the inspiration for them in Skyward Sword... Or something like that X]

Wow! I can't believe how ridiculously fast that was! I thought for sure I'd be waiting until the last day. Glad to know they're safe :)

Yay to your postman delivering some cards boo that mine aren't there yet

I'm glad some of the cards are getting there. I feel your pain, pixiecorpse. I had a set of cards go MIA - actually it was a luggage tag swap. I definitely didn't want to miss out. So, at the last minute I made another set to mail in right before the deadline....and you guessed it. The originals showed up as the hostess was mailing them out. She was nice enough to make them into luggage tags for me and mailed the originals along with the swap ones back to me. So don't give up the ghost just yet.

Wow! I do like it when postal disappearances have a happy ending!
I am keeping my fingers crossed....either way I've seen some fantastic zelda art so I'm a happy bunny :D

Glad they got there with time to spare! :)

Clopina

Yep Katrina, they really have been so fast! I wasn't expecting them so soon. XD

and since mail can be so slow sometimes and the 15th is Thursday, I was thinking of mailing out returns on next monday so that I can wait a few more days for the last sets of cards, if anyone's okay with that. :)
I really don't want to leave anyone out, if I can. :)

Clopina
03-12-2012, 10:08 AM
Claudzie - your cards are here! Thank you so much for the extra card! :D

And I met my neighbour who told me that the new postman gave him some of my mail because he didn't know which mail box was mine, so later today I'll get those letters too and hopefully there'll be some Zelda goodies in there as well. :)

Ooh I hope so that would be great! :D

Pixiecorpse, my cards are MIA right now too! Our cards are probably hanging out together somewhere in Italy waiting to be delivered. :)

No problems on your return sendout time with me. :)

Clopina
03-15-2012, 05:04 PM
I know that today is the deadline, but I will wait these two days for the remaining cards ;)
Returns will be mailed in monday!

And I know that I received someone's mail today for this swap, but I'm not at home and my parents couldn't tell me who it was from. Tomorrow I'll go and open it, and let you know. :)

In the meantime, I just wanted to thank all of you who joined in my first swap! Hopefully the last sets will arrive before monday. :)

I'll keep my fingers crossed! Its been fun even if mine don't make it...

Oh and I hope you MMH final fantasy card gets there ok, I've almost finished it :D

Clopina

I'm a day late saying this but - SunTrade your cards are here! :D
(I'm a bit in a hurry right now, I'll leave iTrader and write more as soon as I get home. <3 )

Clopina
03-19-2012, 05:00 PM
Ok guys here I am!
First thing first, making it official that SunTrade cards are here! I was so afraid they got lost! And thank you so much for the extra card Sun! <3

Returns are all ready to be mailed; tomorrow morning I'll go to the post office and let them go. All the cards were so beautiful that I wanted to escape with them, haha! (jk of course!) :laugh::goofy:

AND! This is important too!
I'm really sorry that some cards are not here yet. While I'm sure that bluesybreeze's cards are just late, and I'm really really sad for that, I'm afraid for pixie and PandaChan sets of cards, that met all that snow last month. But not all hope is lost! I mean, SunTrade cards showed up 2 months after they were sent! :D
So I thought and worked on something; when they'll hopefully show up I'll return them (unless you say otherwise), and I have something else ready for you too. Even if they got lost because of the snow, I don't want to leave anyone out. All of you posted them to the thread, and I know that you sent them. Just PM me your address :yes:

03-19-2012, 05:18 PM
You are too lovely Clopina! I just hope they do get to you eventually, I had a 3 month wait for a secret santa gift so I know how things can get messed up.
I just hope the card I'm sending to you on friday arrives safe and prompt :D

bluesybreeze
03-19-2012, 05:58 PM
Clopina, thanks for being such a wonderful and understanding host. If mine show up, please don't send them back - they are yours. I should have mailed them way sooner. Thanks for not giving me a negative iTrader :notworthy:

Clopina
03-21-2012, 01:08 PM
!!!RETURNS HAVE BEEN MAILED!!!

I hope everyone will be pleased with their returns, and please please let me know whey you'll receive yours!
And remember to leave Rep Points (you rock) for people you receive cards from and iTrader for the host (me) when you'll receive your cards! ;)

bluesybreeze - thank you so much! You're so kind, but I promise I won't leave you empty-handed. :) And I can't leave a negative for a swap, and I have no intention of leaving neutrals either. I mean, it's the mail system who screwed up. :(

3 Awesome cards from: Mikesatc, Clopina, and Bluegrassboy!


Thanks Clopina for hosting this swell swap, and everyone for playing along. Was fun, though stinks some of the cards went MIA. :(

Clopina

Happy to hear that lots of you already got their returns! :D

AND! the postman decided to leave me a little gift, and I found bluesybreeze awesome cards in the mail! It's written clear that they were sent on Feb 28th, so the mail screwed big time here. But don't worry bluesybreeze, you won't be left empty-handed and I'll send you a pm today talking about that. :)

Looks like almost all the cards got to their new homes! That makes this host happy. :D
But Bluegrassboy, I heard nothing from you; did you get your returns yet?
