Epic Link by ken-wong Epic Link by ken-wong
Some fanart of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda games. I wanted to include as many items and accessories as I could without getting silly.

I used a technique I've never tried before, which is to do the greyscale first, then add color in a separate, overlay layer. Quite a different way of thinking, but I like the effect. Easy to make things feel solid, and in some ways, faster.

A bigger and more badass Master Sword, a shield with Triforce spikes for ramming monsters, the mandatory strength upgrade gauntlets, the iron and hover boots combined(though I'm not sure how that would work, since they'd probably cancel each other out), a quiver of arrows for his bow, the oh-so-useful bottle, a few bombs strapped to his... chest-belt?(I have no idea what that's called), and... I'm probably missing one or two things... Yep, this Link's a badass.

The only nitpick that I have is that the shoulder pad is on the wrong side, since the sword-arm requires more protection because it's closer to the enemy.

Saw this got featured in the latest Nintendo Official Magazine and i have to say this looks badass. He makes Conan look like a wuss here. I do wonder if you drew inspiration from other games for this piece like World of Warcraft.
Awesome job.

seems like the shield might be a deadlier weapon than the sword...

Well, this does look rather interesting, but I'm afraid you've failed at the "without looking silly" part. =P (Razz)
