Really cool subject last time ! Too bad I'm too busy to do only one sometimes. Vhan & Telemaco, your pictures are fantastics !

01 January 2006, 10:23 PM
So for lack of inspiration, I decided to do Link's shield. Took about 1.5 hrs. using pen, paper and Art rage.

Lookin good everyone, keep it up.

What do you prefer? With or without birds?



01 January 2006, 06:41 AM
without birds i prefer , cause that pointless running around is mostly what you do in link lol
great atmos. (

crappy try of me. had a fight with my ex client about copyright of fotos of mine she used and it drains all my energy, as my granddad used to say this guy doesnt need school he can always become a sewage cleaner (putjes schepper) ;)

01 January 2006, 08:08 AM
Telemaco I like both... the birds are cool cause he is running away from something.. this is an awesome sketch.
Vahn Aww he looks so cute, cool sketch!
ysvry I am sorry, dealing with copyrights and paper work is always a pain.. hope your headache is better by tomorrow.

I want to see more Links!!! Lol, I am running a little behind on this one.. I have been working like crazy on my website today, I cant bear to draw anything and sit in front of the computer another minute... so I will post tackle this tomorrow morning fresh and awake :D ... I cant do a rushed job with my zelda :D

01 January 2006, 01:30 PM
Telemaco, I think both are brilliant! I like the one with birds more, because it tells more of a story.

01 January 2006, 07:06 PM
2.5 hours/ps

01 January 2006, 08:06 PM
Telamaco- I like the birds, but I'd have them spread out a bit more.

01 January 2006, 12:14 AM

ArtRage | 1 hour

Nice work everyone..

well this sucks my favorite topic and I haven't had the time. I have been so busy working on my website that I havent had time to do this. I am going out of town tomorrow so I will be posting my sketches on sunday... I am not breaking my new years resolution yet!

grrrr... I am itching to sketch this one!!! :scream:

Wiggin I like the shield work.
gergle Oh my arch nemesis!!! I like your interpretation of him.
TheDagger you made Link look really scary. I wouldnt mess with him.

01 January 2006, 07:45 AM
well here is my link......... not the greatest but i think i did an alright job with colors... not liking the style, and i wish i had of shown his face.. but meh... i wanted to put a monster, but i just put a light.. soooo he is attacking a light......... lol shush :p

PS - WACOM - 1.45 hours

01 January 2006, 04:39 PM
InesD, I checked out your website, there's some pretty nice stuff on there. I'm really looking forward to seeing your sketch for this one.

02 February 2006, 10:43 PM
I know I'm late.

Started sketching in Painter and didn't stop. I'll probabably return to the sketch and paint it later but this is my "sketch"

painter 9/50 min/wacom

02 February 2006, 11:07 PM
se7enthcin- better late than never. I'm glad I checked back on this one, I really like this one. Absolutely incredible. Keep up the good work.

02 February 2006, 07:03 AM
as promised.. better late than never.. this is actually based on a sketch I made a long time ago.. anyone recognize it? Well I fixed up Link a whole lot, worked more on his clothes and shield (pretty much redid the whole thing using my oldere sketch as a base) and this is a brand new backround that fits in the game.
phew I am done.
Wiggin :) i finished it
seventhcin I absolutely love it, his expression is awesome. I am glad you made it

02 February 2006, 02:43 AM
I prefer the birds actually, gives him a reason to be running and adds more positive space as opposed to negative

02 February 2006, 12:25 AM
speaking of late entries....
I started the sketch when I saw the topic, but was pretty busy.
its still not done, but i wont be working more on it

02 February 2006, 06:23 PM
InesD- Very nice!!! I was begining to think you were'nt going to do this, But I'm glad you did. images/icons/icon10.gif Good work.
