TZP: Lon Lon Milk by Adella TZP: Lon Lon Milk by Adella
Oh...! I'm proud to present to you a sample of our very own Lon Lon Milk. You'll be energized the moment you drink it! After you drink it, you can bring back the bottle and buy a refill, anytime you want! - Talon

Hello everyone. It's been a long time since we've posted anything to do with TZP. However, our Lon Lon Ranch shoot is finally finished, so I thought I'd post a fun teaser here on DA while we work on the photos from the shoot.

Malon hands Link a bottle of Lon Lon Milk to take along for his journey.

The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of friends who seek to bring to life the characters, settings, and overall feel of Ocarina of Time through photography and film. Our ultimate goal is to create the characters as they would appear in reality to the best of our abilities, placing them in beautiful sceneries true to their Hyrulean counterparts, and creating elaborate photosets, as well as a film short (coming once the cosplay segment of the project is completed!).

Model of Malon: Sarah Quillian *Adella
Model of Link: Anthony Beaston "Lune"
Photography: Julia Starr `night-fate
Makeup/Special FX: Chase Birdsong
Prosthetics/Special FX: Erick Rodriguez
Storyboarding: Sofia Alexander *Elenath
Location: Stafford Ranch, Clovis CA
Milk Label Credits: ~Sliter

A special thanks to everyone who has helped us get this far! Without all of your support and kindness we wouldn't have been able to make this happen. We only hope that with what we produce, a smile is put on your face!

<3! Man, now I want to go out and get myself a tall glass of Milk!

Awesome picture btw! Is Link Sitting down while Malon is handing him the drink? It seems like that's what's happening..

Cute!! Picture!!! Keep up the great work!

Also I love the detail on the bottle!
DarkRiver249 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Did you use any real-world reference when designing the gauntlets or were they mostly based off of the in-game model?
Shadowolf159 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
One thing I really like about this photo is the gloves. I know it sounds a bit dumb, but whenever people cosplay as characters who have gloves, the characters gloves look think and much like fingers, when the cosplay gloves just look like regular gloves with lumps and such.

Perhaps it's just me, but it really annoys me.

Other than that, this photo is great, I look forward to more of The Zelda Project :D
Adella Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012
well thank yas!

So awesome! I love what you guys are doing!
Allendra3 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I actually really like this small, detail shot. You can see the texture of his gloves, the detail on the milk bottle. And they both have very nice looking hands. :)
VisionsofOlivine Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I know it may be weird or something to so, but the detail here is amazing. The first thing I noticed was how clean cut their nails were, which I think is great because a lot of cosplayers forget to do little physical things when cosplaying. It's not required or expected really, but clean cut looks good.

Great job!

This photo is so pretty.. ;_;

Me which had the hope to see one day a photograph of cosplay on Link X Malon, I am sad with the idea of knowing that this one will be perhaps the last. :(

when can we see moreeeee you have the best zelda photos in the world!
OcarinaLullaby Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012   Digital Artist
I saw the behind the scenes Death Mountain photoshoot on facebook. Just curious, is Anthony still modeling Link? Because Anthony/Lune is an amazing model for Link!
Adella Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Hi there. Anthony has been recast. Anthony is still Link in the Lon Lon Ranch shoot, but all shoots after Lon Lon Ranch will be a different model. :)

Looking good, too!

Go for it!

I'm so pleased! The photo itself is very visually pleasing, for one. The textures of the leather, skin, and glass create just the right balance, and the colors and shapes are warm and easy to travel along...I especially love the background details of the Master Sword and both of their clothing. Lovely. And very gracious of you to give us an early teaser, what with everything else you must be working on! I'm so grateful for your care and mindfulness not only with us, as fans of your work, but for the project itself.

I am so, so pleased that you were able to get this photoshoot in! (and sorry you ended up going to the ER over it, if I remember right!) Your steady determination is uplifting and inspiring to me. I never thought to before, but I will start tucking in a few prayers for all of you and your work and other things going on in your lives. I hope the road ahead will be more easily paved for you as reward for your hard work and your faith in your project and yourself!

Sliter Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012
Very nice photo!
I am very happy for you guys using my work!
When I saw about the project I felt a bit bad with myself because someone has an awesome project like this and I can't take part in some way... And now I discovered that I did! But not knowing! haha really, thank you! ^^
If there is some way I could help or something I could do, just call me!

It would be funny to see Link in the middle of a supermarket comparing the nutrition label on Lon Lon Milk and a carton of normal milk xD
