After watching the announcement trailer for Hyrule Warriors for the Nintendo Wii™ in 2013, I was inspired to draw the new design for Link, scarf included. At the same time I wanted to give him that Josei style of art, which includes the tall thin figure and feminine facial features.
All in all, this was a quick sketch and I don't have plans on taking it any further than this stage of illustration. While I was deep in my work on the graphic novel, it was a nice break to draw something different, yet familiar; an old favorite.
