WOOOO! OLD SCHOOL ZELDA REPRESENT!
But seriously, no one acknowledges Link's awakening D:
And then later...
Uncle: "Link...you must rescue Princess Zelda. Our people are fated to do so. But do not fall victim...to fate. Link... I shall always remember...our time...together..."
Right now, I can hear the Zelda Symphony rendition of that theme that plays when you're out in the rain. (I don't know the official title, but I do call it "A dark and stormy night".) Other than that, there's nothing I have to say aside from what's already been said. ALttP is the first Zelda I have ever seen, let alone played. And I was so young at the time that I didn't pay much attention to the tone that's presented by the scene this picture depicts. (I must have been watching my Dad play it when I first saw this scene, however, but still.)
Even to this day, ALttP is one of my favorite Zeldas.
I tell you, this color scheme you used here really sets up the mood for one of the more action-filled wanderous beginnings in the series. While I wonder about the visible rain's absenceat the outdoor scenery, the lightning and the rain on windows do well giving out the rainy atmosphere glooming outside.
(Maybe I might also look deeper there but maybe the rain was somewhat of foreshadowing signifier on his dad going to be dead later by the developers?)
Thanks, that was the goal of the color scheme and I'm glad to know it works! Mm, there were originally actually supposed to be raindrops falling outside the door, but I thought they distracted from the lightning bolt so I left them out. I'm glad the rain on the windows does a decent job making up for it.
Perhaps, or at least a general omen that not all would be well, as dark and stormy nights usually are.
