Link, Reborn by JoeyJulian Link, Reborn by JoeyJulian
For an art challenge with some friends it was decided we would all do something from our childhood. I picked link as I LOVE the legend of Zelda and I always wanted to see him more "badass". So this is my version of a New Link.

Hope you like it.

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful support and kind words! The DD was amazing! :D

Oh man this is so epic!  I love how you designed his outfit and I love how you drew him in the shadows.

Your artstyle is very awesome :clap:

Wow I wish this was real T_T I agree though, they should upgrade links outfit, at least in the newer ones he has brown pants instead of white tights.. but still, I would approve with much more confidence if he wore this XD

I think his adult version "Ocarina of Time" was the first video game character I thought was hot. You're drawing has just firmly reinforced that.

Ps. Is he at the forest temple?
