Legend of Zelda - New Link by Paterack Legend of Zelda - New Link by Paterack
My version of Link - I originally had in mind a Prince of Persia type of design scheme, so I decided to streamline Link a bit and give him a Scimitar-inspired Master Sword, and turned his Hylian shield into a Gauntlet that can fold out into a mini-shield. I figure this type of Link is more of a swash-buckling type of character than previously imagined. Made for Otronicon 2011 in Orlando, FL.

Link, the Hylian Crest and all that good stuff are property of Nintendo.

Looks interesting to say the least, I get a "Legend of Zelda: Black Flag" vibe out of this. This would be great for a Skyward Sword/Twilight Princess styled Pirate adventure game. I do recall you said that Wind Waker Link is your favorite, I'd especially be curious how you'd interpret a toon/young Link. But I digress, this is a great pic, and it looks almost good enough for a legit Link!

Thank you! I'd love to try different styles with Link - a pirate Link, Desert Link, I even have a Snow Link idea that I'm batting around in my head. One of these days I'll get to it!

It's quite impressive that you've got other ideas of how to interpret Link! Have you ever thought of an idea of how you'd make Princess Zelda herself?

It would only make sense to do revamps of the Princess as well!

this is a really great concept take and works well in the zelda universe.  after all, there are always dessert tribes in hyrule why not have link come out of that tribe for just one game, like a handheld game.  kinda not feelin redoing the master sword cuz its iconic, but link doesn't always use the master sword so just as his sword this really works.  good shit.
