The Hero of Hyrule by monkeykaos The Hero of Hyrule by monkeykaos
"Thanks Link, you're the hero of Hyrule!"


----------------

Title: The Hero of Hyrule
By: ~monkeykaos
For: *Woodland-Mel
Request: "The original Legend of Zelda: Just Link and Zelda in the same scene"
Medium: CG illustration (Illustrator and Photoshop)
Game(s): Legend of Zelda (NES)
Character(s)/Pairing: Link and Zel
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Creator’s Notes: Ladies and gents, here is my very first entry for the #zelda-exchange !

I've wanted to join for the longest time, so I was equally thrilled and nervous beyond belief when I got my request sent to me. I hope this isn't considered a spoiler. I mean, it's kind of a given that Link beats Ganon and gets the triforce at the end of the game, right?

I really like drawing big poofy dresses :P ...And I just realized Link's sword is on the wrong side (derp) oh well.

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT MEL!!

Very cute! The original LoZ is still one of the games I have yet to play. Is it any good?

Thanks!
It's a classic but it has definitely aged...it's a basic game but I found it enjoyable in small sessions of gameplay.

Oh okay. I'll check it out on Virtual Console. I was possibly gonna get ALttP first, however.

I approve of the use of Old-School Zelda. The character designs are also refreshingly unique and only barely resemble the anime style of the original designs. I like the weaving work on the clothing in particular, which is a nice attention to detail. Thanks for posting this, I really like it.

OMG I LOVE IT A MILLION TIMES OVER!

But how dare you spoil the game for me XD
No, but seriously, this is so effen' cute. I could not be happier. I love how you did all your little touches~ The decorative lines just kick ass and this is probably the cutest original Zelda I have ever seen. You seriously rock *GAHHH* God this is cute.

I don't even know what I want to say. I'll shut up now and fav it XD
..omg... I love it XD

Yay Melora I'm so happy you like it!! I've never drawn anything based off the original game, but it was cool that the request was pretty open... so it was pretty fun to make :D

OMG, I just realized you haven't /a crime!

But, seriously, it's so damn cute. I love it & you did a great job. You style works so well with so many things! It worked great for this.

And, yeah, lol, I'm just so starved for art from the original games that my requests usually end up being "I'LL TAKE ANY THEME, I JUST NEED AN ORIGINAL HIT. *jkfdhkauyfaejk!!!!*"

Well, and also because, since I love art from the original games, I don't want to over direct it~ I want to see what other people will come up with. For me the fun with the exchange is usually seeing what people other than myself would do. :meow:
