The Legend of Zelda belongs to Nintendo.
Tools: SAI, Wacom Graphire 4.

PD. (Now.... KISS!! D: )

EXPLANATION

Many people, not only through Deviant Art, but other media, has emphasized the alleged "error" of the Triforces placed on opposite hands. Well, there's a simple explanation for this, that I want bring to you hoping you can understand. First, you may not appreciate at first glance that Zelda and Link are holding the Master Sword with their other hand. Link holds the sword with his left hand because he is left-handed. Even simpler: The Triforces in those hands are nothing more than artistic license. This drawing is rather symbolic, not looking for accuracy, just a representation of concepts.

The other matter is that Zelda looks "manly". I know there's no excuse, I'm not the best artist, gosh, I've never studied art, I'm a hobbyist. But at least let me say that I get the reference from Hyrule Historia, page 174, in the upper right corner. Although my own drawing style has influenced the shape of the face, I tried to be as faithful as I could to the original style. Sorry.

Thanks for looking at my drawing, and for your understanding. Love you all.

Very beautiful! Link looks great, the only thing I might change is make Zelda's chin a little shorter, but that's it!

not a fan of ZeLink but i like the concept and the flowers. i think the side view with wrist showing triforce adds a very nice touch!
