Link - Hero of Time. by BonnyJohn Link - Hero of Time. by BonnyJohn
Hot off the heels of my uber clean lined Joker, I drew up a picture of Link referencing many poses and angles thanks to Super Smash Bros. picture camera taking feature thingy when you hit start and tried several billion poses like with the Joker and found just the right one.

Anyway, before I continue, you may hit me for not drawing Link earlier! Link is the mondo cooliest hero ever!

Actually, a little trivia...what was the first thing I ever put up on DA? Link! It's true! Fahad and I had drawing contests in where we would decide on a character and then we'd draw them in our style and put it up. Winner got a stripper sent to their house...and the bill.

Well, actually, no one ever won...we never really competed lol, just for fun. I had drawn 3 peices traditionally for our draw offs and this was when I just joined DA...I thought my stuff was decent, and then I started looking around...I found out that almost everyone else on DA was better than me! I ran out and got a tablet...and sucked for a while haha. Not too bad, but drawing faces, learning photoshop...I think of those nubby old days...lol. Nah, I'm still very much a noob. However, when I look at the Venom, Joker and now this piece, I feel pride in my work; I feel accomplished, like the pieces by many talented artists here.

Sooooo...yeah. lol. Sorry. Onto my picture... (THERE IS MORE TO READ SIT DOWN TIGHT LADDY! OR LADDETTE...!)

Link is the hero of time. Damn. That has to be the illest title EVER. So, I wanted to make a piece to capture his pureness, and badassery. With a calm face, and pose ready to kick some Gerudo ass, I tried to clean up the lines once again and try a newer color styling...Don't know how to explain or label it. You can just tell if you were to compare this guy to the other ones!

Anyway, accomplishments for this piece: Coolio hair! Coolio shield, just remove the line art, add some lighting and bam, looks 3D! Sweet! Coolio TRIFORCE OMG FINAL SMASH LOOK OUT and yeh...You decide what else is coolio!

Sooo...Enjoy! That's it for now! Oh, btw, I finished this 2 ago lol! I also JUST finished another piece, I am going to post it tomorrow if I get a good reaction from this. If I don't get a good reaction...I will still post the next one...A DAY LATER! NoooOoooOOooO!

Hint for next character: Someone I've already drawn in my gallery...PEACE! :) <3

P.S : Notice that awesome coolio STAMP on the top right!? MY NEW LOGO! Wootzorzs...RLC, PLACE TO BE! I'm gonna go back and put it on all the coolio pics so stay put....PEACE FORREALZS!

OH NO! I lied, my bad, I wanted to say, I drew this for my bud Fahad, who first of all got me into DA...and of course cause the first character I drew was Link...But also to any Link fans, DUH! In fact, all my fan arts are for the fans...DUH! So I want to dedicate all of those fan arts I've done...TO THE FANS! YEAH!

RLCPEACEOUT!

I don't want any religion bashing as there are times where one needs guidance in a world of government idiots running the United Nations to the ground but when a religion overstays it's welcome people act like Zombies and winds up causing them to become what they fear.

Thanks! I have lots of bad luck so these drawings of Link help me calm down thru these trying times. Have you noticed that God seems to be a sick person? He always seems happiest when we are saddest or is it just me? Have you noticed that religious people are very hard to reason with?

He's part of the Haunted Majora's Mask game but I think it's emulated because of how clear the graphics are.

Excellent work! Great job on this full body drawing, I especially like how you made the master sword glow (guess it's because I'm nearby =P). There's just ONE thing that bothers me, his hand gripping the sword, namely the fact that his thumb isn't there. Other than that, it's awesome!

Thanks mate! Aren't you a Link fan too?! And the thumb is there! It's tiny and covered a bit but I made sure to squeeze it in...cheesy attempt but it's there...kind of! lol, what do you think of a shadow variant version?

:iconshadowsniper777:
shadowsniper777 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009
It's just that the thumb should rest partially over the index finger when one is grasping a sword, believe me I should know. As for the Shadow Link idea, I was hoping to do that myself! You can go through with yours if you want, it is an awesome idea. I would like to see your take on a Shadow Link, so go for it! =D

I'm gonna fix up the thumb thing in due time then! Too lazy and on a roll with a bunch of new pieces to do so at the moment...I want to do another Zelda character...but can't think of anyone too cool (other than Ganondorf, of course lol), so maybe I will be a cheese ball and just recolor the line art I did for this one...Would that be appropriate or me being lazy? lol...What I'd do is switch the direction Link's facing so it's not EXACTLY the same piece except different color...lol.

Yeah, thats just being lazy. As for another LOZ character, I was hoping to draw Shiek eventually, but thats a good idea for you, too!

Yayz for Link! I love Link, he is by far my fave out of any video game character (and kicks ass on brawl :D ). The coloring looks awesome! Lol it pays working your tush off to learn photoshop XD.

Haha it definitely does! I've been sitting around coloring and what not for hours...I don't even wanna say for how long! I still don't get how other artists color, I think they have an easier method and I think I have an idea of how they do it..But I really need someone to teach me! Experimenting is good and all, but time consuming, but I can't complain. My experimenting has brought me this far and hopefully farther! When's the next time you're gonna put something, ehhhh? lol
