Legend of Zelda: a link to the past

I'm surprised I finished this sooner than I thought! I still have problem with my scanner..so I had to add some texture and kill some colours. At the end I like this version too! Makes it look bit retro :heart:

a tribute to my favorite Zelda game :)

edit: ah, before I forget!
Thank you for the background suggestions! It helped a lot!

Legend of Zelda (c) Nintendo

Wow, this is great! I like Link's hair brown much better than, obviously, pink. XD

LttP fanart.. It's rare to see any Zelda fanart that isn't OOT, MM, WW, TP, or SS based.

Okays! Lets see...
I used a thin regular cheap markers..orange, pink, green, blue and a thin brown/orange fineliner marker. As for the background I used very pale colours using copic markers, Link and Zelda are copic too.
As for the white highlights and dots...I use a white gelpen/gellyroll

I took a risk combining odd colours together like their skin, I used pale yellow as base and colour called "flesh" for shadow.

I had to put a texture to make it more alive...my scanner somehow dislikes yellow/oranges colours. Here is a photo of how it looks without [link] (not the whole thing though... took this while colouring it)

sorry if there are any typos XD;
