Link's Knighting by Toradh Link's Knighting by Toradh
Aka "Legend of Zelda meets John William Waterhouse".


Remember that I once made a sketch of Link and Zelda re-enacting this waterhouse painting of Lancelot and Guinevere?
[link]

Well, I was in the mood, so I did it in colour. Disney’s The Sword in the Stone was running in the background while I sketched it, that should tell you. There’s that certain scene in Skyward Sword when Link rescues Zelda which so made me think of this painting. It had to be done, you know? Somehow I always thought Zelda goes well with Arthurian legend parodies. That started long ago when I played Ocarina of Time and my dad commented on little Link pulling out the master sword with the words (and I quote): „Are you king of England now?“.

Anywayyy, so since I‘m still in the mood, I might finally do one or two Arthurian comic pages before this year is over. We’ll see.

It doesn’t look like Waterhouse at all, but at least I bothered adopting my style a little bit to his. You wouldn’t believe how much fun I had with their ridiculously adopted hair.

100% watercolour.

EDIT: WTF, 198 messages? People you’re crazed… Just admit the idea cracks you up the same way it cracks up myself :D.

This is so incredibly detailed... most realistic Zelda fan art I've seen so far. :D

But I seriously haven't seen many realistic fan art pieces of the Zelda games... Link always has got some features from the games which aren't very realistic. And you're welcome. ^^

Thank you! Though in this case it’s mixed with a bit of pseudo-Waterhouse :D
