My darker, barbaric spin on Link from the Zelda series! It’s a hodgepodge between Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past where Zelda dies, the master sword breaks, and Link has grown older and been on the run, surviving in the new darker world ruled by Ganon and his minions. (Or if you prefer his LTTP magic mirror cracked and he got stuck in the dark world!)

This was a personal piece, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been one of my favorite games for a long time and I knew someday I'd paint Link, and here we are. One of my favorite elements of that game was the music, following Saria's mysterious song through the lost woods especially.This isn't an exact replica of Link, I used my own vision of him as a young adult, maybe after the game when he's had a chance to grow up out of "kid-link", yet not quite "adult-link". P.S.
