Link- Hero of Time

Posted Dec 9, 2006, 1:10:38 AM
This is a sketch I made, during the lucid, airy, half-dreaming state of mind that occurs at two in the morning, between overconsumption of Adult Swim and excessive sleep deprivation... The picture above does not do the original justice.

    This looks awesome, great job on all the shading ^^

    Good job on the pencil work, shading, and the details.

    I love the expression! The pencil shading is very good, but you need to decide which way the light is coming from... some of the shadows are a bit off.

      Thanks! I appreciate the comment. As for the shadows, that's one of my problems. I get so into the drawing, I often forget where it's comin' from. Again, thanks!

    I have to agree with the one that pointed out the belt. <3 It is very pretty. I love the overall sense of depth to this piece.

      Thank you!!!!! I haven't recieved near the comments I though I would on this! The other one of TP Link I made, "link looking cool" didn't look half as good, and I got 3 fav's. Oh well. I appreciate the comment!

        You're welcome. <3 Ah, yes, that is most disappointing. I hate getting a ton of comments and favorites on effortless sketches, and then getting nothing on stuff with hours of work put into it. It's disheartening, really. (Like this one time, I had a couple five-minute pen-doodled chibis as a preview image, and the real drawing was one of the VERY few pieces I've ever done with a complete background, and someone just had to go say they liked the chibis more. ._. Eheh, I ramble.) Personally, I like this one more. I think the eyes look nicer in the other one, but this one has more to it--more detail, more depth. Eh. People like what they like. *shrug*

          Well said, and I feel the same way. Just like your's with the background, this is one of the few i've done with this much detail, with this kind of focused shading in select locations. The other one was one I did in math class.

            I think of all the things I've ever posted online (some 300 somethings, I think) less than ten-possibly even less than five--had backgrounds. So it hurt considerably.
            Someone did mention that if people are commenting on and favoriting the stuff you feel is worse, then what you favor must be something real special--even if it hasn't gotten much feedback yet. Keeping that in mind may not make things all better, but it most certainly is encouraging~ It's better to be thankful for the positive and helpful comments and criticism we get then complain because of what we got it on, right?
            • Jan 12, 2007
              Right. At any rate, even if we didn't recieve comments on those we like best, it's better that we got the comments at all. It's the basis of thankfulness... Thanks.

    This is a really good Link pic! Awesome job
    • Jan 9, 2007
      Thank YOU!!! I've been waiting for at least a week, and you are only the second to comment on this!!! I appreciate it so much... By the way, I have a pic of Midna eating a chocolate bar (Midna from twilight princess)
      Should I add it?

    Oh man, I love the belt! It looks absolutely real. And his expression *steamy*! Mmm Yummy

      Thanks! I tried to make the drawing as real as possible while still keeping true to the style, and I'm happy with the result.
