Bleed by TixieLix Bleed by TixieLix

A redraw of sorts of my previous takes on D.Link in my preferred interpretation (character and colours.)  My inspirations are a mixture of ideas: that he is smoke and shadow, but also able to shift into physical form (and can very much hurt Link!); that creepy room in the Water Temple in OoT where he suddenly jumps out at you from amongst the mist; looks based on TP Link – my favourite because of the realistic, detailed design; and since he is the opposing reflection of Link (the evil potential in all of us) he’s cold and emotionless whereas Link is warm and tries his best to help everyone.

Originally for Game-Art-HQ Link’s Blacklist but I couldn’t keep to schedule because of my current condition... doing a little bit each time I could manage it meant this has taken 10x longer to finish >_<"

You're welcome.  Also, your reinterpretation of Dark Link inspired me to create a story that explains how Dark Link eventually develops into who and what he is in your depictions of him.  It's only been in my head so far, so I wanna write it out someday.  Whenever I do, if you don't mind, may I post it on my profile and reference you and your Dark Link pieces as the source of the story's inspiration?

Thank you!  Hopefully, my story will do you, your artwork, and the Legend of Zelda franchise justice.  Once I post it, I'll link it to you to see how you like it.

Those sexy eyebrows tho <3
The way you drew his eyes is quite different from your other works of him. He looks a lot more smolder-y and The colors around his eyes are more warm and reddish too (for a glowing effect?). His irises are a lot less vibrant red, but I really like it this way!

He's so pretty asddfg
You did really really good on this.
