It's no surprise that I love the Legend of Zelda series. Link is a great hero, with lots of courage, weapons, and muteness that none can compare to. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Link is called "Chosen Hero". This particular illustration was inspired by the video game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The stage is Eldin Bridge and Link is recovering from a downward aerial attack.
I inked this illustration with Corel Painter Pro 3. The coloring was rendered in Adobe Photoshop. For this piece I used the polygon lasso tool for my flat colors and shapes for shading. I also colored the lines this time around. I think it really makes quite a difference when extra detail like that is taken into consideration.
