You may know, if you follow that blog, that I spent this summer weaving Link, who is the a character of the LoZ. My daughter made this fanart piece, that I fell in love with, and I decided to weave it. ( You can find the original digital art here)
I first made my cartoon, choose my wools, and begun to weave in June, I finished this summer in the parks of Toronto.
When I showed it to my daughter, ske liked it, but made some remarks that made me want to do it again. I will detail them below the picture.
1- The weaving doesn’t follow the line of the drawing
2- This part is not the skin, but the hair, souldn’t be different from the sides.
3- You can’t recognize that it is a little woman
4- You don’t see that the background is a castle
5-the value of the top of the hair is too light
6- This part is too complicated, it’s only the hair, should be one color
7-It was not necessary to line the eyebrows. ( But it should have been great to line the eyes on the top too)
8-There was a shrinkage at the end.
So I tried to take all her remarks in consideration ( but I must admit I forgot some of them, and that sometimes I didn’t follow her prescription because it didn’t seem right to me: for example, she thought the purple was unnecessary, I found it fundamental). Even if it doesn’t show on the photos, all the colors are the same except the deep green of the Hoarin Link 2 (they may sometimes be arranged differently). Here is the result.
I am sure that the weaving of Link 2 is much better. But some parts of each are better than the other’s. I had fun doing that, and if I didn’t have a full time job, I would do a third one.
Which one do you prefer? You will find below pictures of the process, and some details.
Mes chers amis français, c’est trop long de tout traduire donc en bref: deux versions d’un Fanart de ma fille à partir du personnage de Link du jeuLegend of Zelda.
