The Hero in Green by VegaColors The Hero in Green by VegaColors
It's been some time since I've drawn Link. Outrageous, really. I'd still like to fix this up, but I hope you enjoy.

I honestly don't know which Link I was aiming for, nor is the setting any particular temple/location. I ended up doing a mash-up. Edit: However, after thinking back to the places Link has visited, the Sacred Grove from Twilight Princess fits the most. Ah, the memories.

I feel like he's in the Forest Temple, but Sacred Grove works as well.

But not only do I enjoy this art piece, I really love your art style! :omg:

I like the perspective you decided to draw this in, it really looks like he's coming towards us. :)

His posture is good since you can see the moment. [if that makes sense ^^; not sure how to phase it.] Details of his clothes are good, and the background does give the Twilight Princess vibe. :)

Ooooh, lovely.  You've drawn Link in a nice, clean design here.  The background is what really defines this piece, though.  Wonderful texture and lighting effects in so many shades of green.  It has an eerie, ethereal look.  Great work.  :)

Thanks again. I spent a lot more time on the background, since they're usually my weak point.

lol, if this is your fixer upper, I cant wait for your final! :D Though to be honest, I like the slightly surreal environment combined with an amazingly awesome and absorbing link. It makes him jump out at you.

A <3 for sharing!

Nice work! ^_^

Just thought you would be interested to know that the facebook group "Zelda Universe" is featuring this. They did include the link to it here so people know who made it and can find you easily.
