The Myth of Zelda - Link by Pertheseus The Myth of Zelda - Link by Pertheseus
A quick Link i did in an eastern fashion and imagining the game with a different cultural flavor.

Edit - Fixed the Hakama, got schooled from furan on how to do it properly :p

I don't know why but, this feels ... Futuristic to me. The artwork is of course amazing. But I get a sort of modern/future samurai feeling for some reason.

Oh god this is awesome! I love the design! I wonder how a samurai Zelda game would work out... oh wait! There was a samurai Zelda game once. It's called Nazo no Murasamejo. ;)

Hmm... Makes me think of a certain Samurai... Simply for his theme song, though.
"I'll be back. Back to the past Samurai Jack"
Link to the Past? Heheh... Yeah.

Amazing work. Really diggin' the style.

Wow. Beautiful style and pose. Could work well as a vector artwork and would look fantastic in game.

Small niggles, there's a stray yellow line in the bottom right of Link's hakama that could do with cleaning up and Link's chest seems a little overcomplex and not quite in keeping with the minimalism of the rest.

It's the bold simplicity that really makes this stand out for me.

Fantastic design, great details, cool cell-shaded style (this is what Wind Waker should have been like), and I have spent a long time trying to imagine the perfect Eastern-inspired version of Legend of Zelda. Definitely a new fav. ^^
