I bleed too by TixieLix I bleed too by TixieLix
My version of Dark Link for the LoZ villains tribute on :icongame-art-hq:

As some of you may already know, I DON'T ever draw Dark Link literally. I took this tribute as an opportunity to expand on my interpretation of him as a combination of my most memorable encounters with him, and how I would like to see him included in future LoZ games. I thought it would be interesting to play with the idea of Dark Link being more substantial than just Link's shadow/evil copy - what if he were to have his own feelings, agendas, etc... and being the evil opposite of Link, and knowing what he knows, I think Dark Link could make one of the most formidable villains that the green clad hero could ever face :D

Colours borrowed from the Dark Link in Super Smash Bros Brawl with my own adjustments. Setting is that eerie room in one of the Ocarina of Time dungeons where Dark Link is the boss. And I made a point of having him right handed, and holding a dark version of the Master Sword :)

One question: Have you ever read the Zelda Mangas? I bet you would love four swords than ;).
Dark Link got a major role in this Manga. Sadly i have never played the game (but i am going to change this) so i am not sure if he is in the actual game or not.
But i can recommend you the Mangas if you haven't read them yet, they are very, very good :).

Yes I have all of them and I love them ^^.  Dark Link is actually a bit different to Shadow Link but I think I'd like to see that kind of personality coming through in D.Link :)

I agree with you :D
I hope there will be more Zelda Mangas, like Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword^^.
And i would LOVE to see Shadow Link in one of the newer Games again.
Such a shame he was just a mid-boss in ocarina of time :(

Did you see the Zelda anniversary art book by any chance?  The same artists that drew the mangas did a short one of Skyward Sword in that :D

Yeah I hope they bring D.Link back - such an under appreciated character with so much potential!!

Yeah got it myself two months ago :)
I love this book so much and the manga was very interesting.
But i must say there was a little bit too much of skywarp words inside ^^;

I so agree with you!

You definitely managed to make the audience feel as though Dark is coming after us. :D His gaze is penetrating, and he's cocky and cofnident, ready to kill something else. How fascinating. :D As you already know, I'm a huge fan of your Dark Link artwork, so I love this piece. :) Well done.

awww thank you! Drawing is something that I've taught myself since I was small, but I've had to keep pushing myself to where I am today... having said that I don't think I could've done it if I didn't enjoy it - Just keep practicing and persisting if you really want to get good at anything ;)

You're welcome! I've tried drawing for years and years and I do still dabble a little in drawing every now and again. I guess i'm just more of a photographer than a drawing person.

Everyone's different and you shouldn't feel bad about it. Certain things just come to some people more easily than others and I remember drawing as a kid to keep myself out of boredom mainly XD I can't take good photos to save my life and I think it's an art in itself so be proud you have that skill ^^

:icongamergurl525:
Gamergurl525 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
Yeah I am proud to have that skill, almost everything around us is an art form of sorts and people need to realize all of that and respect people's works not just the kinds of works that they themselves like. I'm not saying they have to like it just respect it. I respect all forms of art and there are some (like yours) that I just adore. Keep up the great work :)

You're so right! When you think about it, since Dark Link is essentially 'born' of Link, he would probably know everything that Link knows...and he could use all of it against him! Best bad guy ever x3 I hope he's in future LoZ games...(I wished that they would have replaced just one of the Imprisoned fights in SS with a Dark Link fight...:meow: )
