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!
