LOZ: Souless Checkmate by tanginova LOZ: Souless Checkmate by tanginova
my LOZ artrade with the great :icononisuu:

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?

hands shmands. Not only in different games does he have different dominant hands, but it also depends how you see it. from a picture point of view is how i usually do it, so in this painting its really in his left hand.  But if you look at it as his hand is to your right so he's right handed then its correct. whats it matter? The paintings great anyways!
