Sheik by TixieLix Sheik by TixieLix
My take on Sheik for Link's Friendlist on :icongame-art-hq:  I've always thought it'd be interesting if Zelda did actually turn into a guy when she was disguised as Sheik (male or female depending on which interpretation you follow)  In my interpretation, I see him as a fluid, masculine type (think Ninja!) in contrast to Zelda who is all feminine.  I also went with his monochromatic palette swap from Super Smash Bros Brawl for a more mature, subtle look to bring out the emphasis on the dark, mysterious young man I imagine him to be.

Your view on Shiek is actually really interesting! When playing OoT for the first time I always thought it was a guy, so I was pretty surprised to find out it was Zelda :P But I like her as Shiek, I enjoy using her character in Super Smash Bros and can't wait to see what she'll be like in the Wii U game ^^

Your art is really awesome, keep it up!! Thumbs Up
