my LOZ artrade with the great
I drew her au puppet!Link which originates from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
It was actually more of a challenge than i thought it would be. While paint experimenting, I wanted to portray him in an odd pose like a puppet but in a more sinister way. With one hand it seems the threat is that Link will suffocate himself, symbolizing that the puppet-master can easily kill Link without a single touch; with the other hand, Link holds the great sword in a eerie way, but the threat of attacking you instead hangs in the air. Even if he's no longer a hero, he still has the strength of the chosen one.
i drew the sword in the wrong hand (in regards to the usual dominant hand in the wii system which is right-handed; i realize that Link is originally left-handed, but let's just...forget that for now for the sake of this piece's theme). I did this in order to to emphasize the 'wrongness' of Link.
Let Link die, or let yourself be killed. Its seems to be a checkmate. game over?
