Spoiler for Skyward Sword below:
Short sketch of my idea of the goddess Hylia, since looking at the manga interpretation makes me wanna puke, its that uninspired. Maybe its not the artist's fault but its embarassing nonetheless.
On the left her original form and on the right her human form (not Zelda). Im not sure weather she just died in in her godess form and her spirit was born again later or if she "recreated" herself into a human and gave birth to the later known royal family (< favorite idea).
Based on different depictions of her throughout the game.
