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.

Hyrule Historia said Zelda "impersonated a Sheikah boy". What if Sheik was a real person? I like to think Sheik was a separate character that Zelda disguised herself as to hide from Ganon. That way I can have both awesome ninja Princess Zelda and badass Prince Sheik of Kakariko Village. XD
Awesome artwork. :)

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!

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

Ohhh tixielix! How are you?? I didnt see this was by you, I was so busy with the fav button I didn't notice the screen name! I should say more then. :p this is great because you have given Sheik the attitude I have always pictured too- there is a fierce determination to him but also such a cool composure. He doesnt fall into a trap of looking bored instead. The pose is dynamic and tense, you can feel that things are just about to heat up. I like the color choices especially the change of hair to silver. Plus the obvious...he is pretty attractive :D and everything is very clean and polished! You don't work for capcom or Nintendo yet??? :)

Ok sorry if that is all annoying wall of text. Hope everything is going well! I'll have to look through the rest of your art when I make it to a computer so expect a flood of favs... :)

hahaha I was wondering too if you're the same ElectricSmile from FanFic XD  Happy to hear you like my take on Sheik :tighthug:  I wish I was lol - not sure I'm up at that level to be considered a pro yet but I'm trying my best to get there ^^ 

Things are hectic on my side, but otherwise great :D  Hope you're doing well and it's great to hear from you again ^^
