So I'm gonna warn you now that I am horrible at critiques, and in fact I only said that to use up more words. So, let's get started!

I think this is a truly amazing piece, and a great interpretation of the shadow temple. I love how you brought it to life and I really love Link's giant shadow behind him.

It was really clever how you made the light come from the windows and the tiny specks of dust that you could see, like in real life.

It was really cool how you made Navi glow and light the way. I really like this piece, good job :D.
What do you think?

This is my first "critique", and I hope it's useful for you. First things first, you can see my ratings on the right, so I'll begin give my reasons:

Vision: This is an original view of the famed Shadow Temple from Ocarina Of Time. I mean, there isn't a room with that layout that I can remember. I put a 3.5 because, even if there's not a room like that, it feels like it could have been. It feels like it belongs in the Shadow Temple.

Originality: I put a four in here. It's original in that it's a new room. Not a drawing of an existing room, not a room inspired in an existing one. But it's not a five because it feels as a "generic dungeon room". I mean, as I said in the "Vision" section, this could have been in the game, , but it feels like one more room. Original in the execution, not in the concept.

Technique: A plain five. You drawed it flawlessly. It's a perfect picture, and those heads remind me of H.R. Giger. You know, the designer of the Alien creature? Your style reminds me of him.

Impact: As someone who played the game, I must say: You captured the Shadow Temple almost perfectly. It needs some more blood and grimdark, but this painting is beautifully made.

So, overall:
Vision: 3.5/5
Originality: 4/5
Technique: 5/5
Impact: 4.5/5

I might be a little biased, knowing the Shadow Temple was my favourite, but that's how I see it. Congratulations!

Also, remember. This is my first critique and I don't know how this works.

Scary stuff at the beginning.  By the end of the Temple, I couldn't take it seriously.

That's pretty much how I felt playing it... It took me months to beat Bongo Bongo, by the time I was finished I never wanted to see that place again. So big and empty and sad. And annoying how it spit you at the beginning of the temple every time. It took me more time to get to the boss then it did to die defeating him.

I will be bluntly honest:

The shear emotion and effort put into this inspired me to write a poem. I just finished it and posted it on fanfiction.

What really jumped out at me was the monolithic statues. They seemed ominous yet tragic at the same time.

Second of all, I loved the contrast of light and shadow both literally and metophorically. The light pools in from the hero as well as the outside, representing what is fought for and who fights. Meanwhile, they bathed in darkness, trapped and struggling.

All the while, you can't help but wonder what lies in the dark, out of sight... Nevertheless, the hero stands as a small pin of light, defiant and proud.

Outstanding work.

Since this picture inspired me for the story itself, would you mind if I used as the cover for the fanfiction and credited you in the both the Synopsis and the story? It wouldn't exist if it wasn't for this artwork. I would appreciate it.

Thanks for the nice comment and awesome poem, and yes you have my permission to use this artwork provided you don't make any profit of it /money/ and if you add my name "Linus Damm" to the bottom of the artwork as its creator. Thanks again and if you have any more questions, just ask. :)

Thanks! I really appreciate it. It is now up on fanfiction dot net. The story is called "Temple of Shadow" by Patriot-of-USA if you want to check it out.

That picture really adds something!

Wow. The detail and the different light sources really make this painting. I love how Navi is guiding his way in the water and the gloom and eeriness of the statues above. Very well done.
