LOZ::: Link by Wrinki LOZ::: Link by Wrinki
Phew....I hope this image looks alright on other moniters...I have a very bright LCD screen, so it looks fine on my comp, but will probably mutate into a dark blob so that you can't see any of the details. *sigh*
Well, Its finally pretty much finished. Tis Link from the legend of Zelda. That game was one of my first fandoms ever...I would draw link and zelda kissing using reference from the scenes of Peter Parker and Mary Jane from my spiderman comics XD
For this picture though, I used reference and inspiration from Hyung-tae Kim a little...I wanted link to have a new flare to his outfit, so I tinkered around with it a little. I hope that it still looks like link and keeps his original vibe.
I guess you could say this is my concept of what I'd like him to look like in a new game. I even had a story behind him and the faerie.
Its like, Link needs to get through the lost woods, but can't because...they're the lost woods. So he craftily captures an unlucky faerie floating around and ties her to his sword using magic threads. She can't get away until she guides him through the forest. Kinda a darker theme than most of his other partnerships, but I'm sure they'll become friends over time. ^^

Anyways, once again, I hope the colours and such look ok on your monitors. If you find that its too dark or too light, then just let me know and I'll try to fix it and find a universal balance that everyone likes. ^_^

The style of your piece reminds me of Pan's Labyrinth. The fairy is very similar and it had a darker feeling to it as well. Good job.

The design on the Tunic is very beautiful. I also liked how you made the style of the tunic more into an everyday shirt. Very nice.

I think it looks like a middle version of link....Like...not young link nor adult link...like somewhere in the middle...Like...imagining young link is 7 and adult link 17...this looks like a 12 year old link....to me at least no offese of course, I LOVE IT...it just look like a semiteen link to me :)

Thank you!
At the time I was thinking that they really would benefit from doing a fairly solid re-working of his outfit. Each zelda game kinda seems like a clone of the other at this point. lol

No problem I get where your coming from i would also like to see a bit more difference in the characters outfits, cuz sometimes people have a hard time telling them apart. but at the same time i feel like that makes it a bit classic since each link is somehow realated to the other, but in there outfits and hair and whatnot there is already some difference.

I love the dark and mystical atmosphere, it does more than justice to the series I think

In fact I'd much prefer a zelda game that felt like this - to the rather cartoony direction they're going with

Wrinki Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yesssssssss.
I think they need to realize that all the people who were big fans of zelda as kids are now adults....and so they still love zelda, but want an adult version. Twilight princess came close...and then they decided they didn't like that for some reason >_>

It always amazes me how many different styles there are to make Link personable to each artist. This is another wonderful example (he may look like a child, but the look in his eyes suggest otherwise). So much detail!
