This year is The Legend Of Zelda's 35th Anniversary! I wanted to make a new Zelda piece to celebrate so I decided to sculpt Link. I chose Ocarina of Time Link because, well, that's one of my favorite and most cherished video games of all time.
I didn't really have a specific 2D concept to choose from. I searched through so much amazing Zelda fan art and had trouble deciding on just one to sculpt. This sculpt is a bit of an amalgamation inspired by several pieces of Link art out there. The pose also proved to be pretty challenging and hard to make feel dynamic but it felt the most appropriate for the piece and style of Link. Hope you all enjoy!
