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.

Fantastic artwork! The coloring really fits the ninja-like stealthiness of the Shiekah and then the needles :iconyourocksonicplz:

This is the most beautiful rendition of Sheik I have ever seen! I never could think of him as female, no matter how much I love the games. This is so close to how I think of him, I wish I had something to give other than my deepest thanks for sharing your work, and a Llama! Shuriken!
