Thanks! I was inspired by Katsuya Terada's old Zelda illustrations from the NES era. :)

I love the atmosphere in this piece.  The palette and scene design really give this piece the vibes of an ancient story of a legendary hero.  In addition, the way you handled the lighting shows that as the Sun rises to bring in the light of a new day and to end the night, Link rises to accept his destiny and protect Hyrule from the forces of evil.  Beautiful job!

Omgosh.... old school Link....

Love. :heart:

Haha, and I love the simple color scheme and scanty background.... so detailed, and yet so minimal.

Love this. :love:

Don't get me wrong, I love all the Links and their designs, but the simplicity of oldschool Link is always gonna be my fave. ( Even though I didn't play any of the old games till after windwaker, ahahah... )
