Zelda: Days and Knights by animetayl Zelda: Days and Knights by animetayl
Edit: Entered into ZFH Contest VIII: Zelda Sunshine

The only thing sexier than Link is Link in armor. :faint: This is my concept design of Link as a knight. A few components of his costume come from the Zelda 2005 game's design, but a lot of them are original (you can probably tell what isn't).
Anyway, I have a lot to say about this picture. After doing 'The White Labyrinth', I was going under highlight withdrawal big time, so for my next picture, I wanted to make it shiny. Hope I succeeded. :XD:
"Look momma, no lines." I used the no-line technique for the background this time around. PAIN IN THE BUTT, but I love how it came out. :) I will use this technique from now on I think. I wish the chainmail would show up more, because that happens to be almost 400 individual rings woven together one by one. It looks super-cool up close, but you can barely see it now. :(
Here's hoping we get a Zelda game with Link in armor! *dies at the thought*
edit: When I was drawing this, I realized that I've NEVER seen Link eat anything. Well, I don't want him to turn into Link Skellington, so I gave the poor starving boy an apple. :XD:
Edit 2: Here's some detail pics. [link] [link]
Link, Zelda Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto

I can totally imagen Link being like this after he saved Hyrule getting raised to a hero to the people and pledging his loyalty to Zelda. Which is so not like Links style and he ends up traveling the world for more adventure one month later, will he ever stay a settle down in a calm life and marry Zelda?
