Haven't given you guys any exclusive stuff recently. Let's fix that!
Just a quick concept image I drew last night. I didn't reference any of my other files for continuity (silly me), but in any case, anything here is subject to change before I actually get Link looking like the Hero of Legend.
For now, I shall call him The Hero of Conflicting Light Sources. Yup. That sounds good.
"Hero of Conflicted Light Sources" ah, the joys of artistic lighting. But I do like this concept--the tunic is really unique looking, but still looks like something Link would wear; I especially like the upper half of the tunic--collar in particular. And the little pattern on the hat is a nice touch. Can't wait to see the final concept!
It does have a rather Asian feel to it, now that you point it out. When I first saw it I thought it looked kind of "warrior-monk". As for good or bad...well I suppose that depends on if that's the theme/feel you want to give to Link or not.
The Hero of the Conflicted Light Sources! That sounds very epic.
No really, the light's great, I love the folds and omg that texture is awesome! I really need it! Was this drawn in Photoshop or Paint Tool Sai (or some other stuff) and is that texture a brush or a texture from internet?
Dat shield is awesome. Nuf said. I'm in love with your style.
