Zeldanime Those Golden days by crazyfreak Zeldanime Those Golden days by crazyfreak
Visit Zeldanime.com for the new poll and VOTE!

Link won the previous poll found at Zeldanime.com Who would you like to see in an illustration

This is what I had in mind for Link, inspired by the great official artwork of Link sitting on a stone wall with his Ocarina and the one of Alttp where Link chills under a tree.

I hope the people who voted are satisfied with this picture =)

If you didn't know Zeldanime weekly updates the poll and will draw an illustration of the outcome of the poll! So go and vote on the latest one!

This picture is sort of a collab with :icononichild:, I had this pose in mind so I actually sketched a really sloppy one to show to Onichild what I had in mind, so then I asked him if he could sketch the pose into further detail out XD since I suck drawing Link so badly!!!! So yeah after he gave me the sketch I like worked it out into this. So yeah credits go to :icononichild: for drawing an amazing Link again!

here are the steps:


I miss Oldschool brown hair Link somehow seeing this picture =(

For once, the hero gets to take a little breather.

...He never seems to take a break, does he? Does he even SLEEP??? :confused:

Well this is cartoon Link, AOL, LOZ Link but erhm whose Link III?!

MSLynk Featured By Owner May 14, 2010  Student General Artist
Using the 'timeline' theory, Link I is OoT Link, Link II is LttP Link, and Link III is LOZ/AOL Link.
... Oh wait I didn't add in TP Link to that part of the timeline. Forget what I said. xD

Sorry, big Zelda fan with old knowledge. ;^^

crazyfreak Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
Well isn't the timeline like just a fan theory? Since everybody have their own views on it I associating Link's with the games! =D

MSLynk Featured By Owner May 14, 2010  Student General Artist
Well they've confirmed there IS a timeline. They just haven't told us what it is... So we're finding fan theories on what that could be. I stick to the "split timeline."

I should probably do that. xD

crazyfreak Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
I also stick to the split timeline, it's far easier to explain wth is going on in the zelda world.

:iconmslynk:
MSLynk Featured By Owner May 14, 2010  Student General Artist
Yep.
Last I checked the unified involved the world flooding and draining which... REALLY doesn't make sense. xD
Or maybe they modified it so that New Hyrule from Spirit Tracks is Hyrule from LOZ/AOL...

Hmmm, you know, I thought I was a raving fangirl of blond Link, but this is making brown-haired Link look pretty good.

Excellent sun-dappling, as everyone has said, and I really love the details on the sword.

Oh, brown-haired Link, how I love thee *swoon*

I really like the pose. Link's face really grabs my attention. I love the coloring, too. Nice work on drawing him in the shade and managing to get those little spots of light from between the leaves in.
