Desertification by stephenb19 Desertification by stephenb19

Listen to that too ^_^

Decided to do a pictcher of my favourite thing about Skyward Sword. Lanayru Desert was expertly conceived and designed, with atmospheric music, beautiful surroundings and an interesting time-shift dynamic. I really like how it was explained that in the past, the Desert was lush and green, on the border of a magnificent Ocean. Changes in Climate turned it all to Sand, so it's kinda relevant!

I wasn't sure whether to apply a final Purplish overlay or a Yellowy-Orange one. I decided to go with the Purple because there was too much Yellow already so I think the purple provides a good counterbalance.
Didn't stick in the Robots cos I got tired and let's face it I should be working x___x;;

Skyward Sword was full to bursting with clever innovations, but the use of the Timeshift Stones to traverse Lanayru Desert was one of the best in my opinion. This picture is excellent!

You did an awesome job on this, I'm speechless! Lanayru Desert has got to be a Masterpiece in the Zelda Universe, it shows how much thought they put into this section with the ocean and all. And you really transferred that well. Love those details in the ocean part.

Mind if I share this? 83
