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.

ahh finally I good MALE sheik drawing q,q
I love it!
And it appears a lot more interesting with zelda changing her gender. (Which she did if you compare Zeldas and Sheiks body)
 
The eyes are really awesome!

The hair details and overall movement is great, this is probably one of my favorite color palettes when it comes to Sheik. :D

Gotta say I love my sheikah (even though he's not mine), also love the fact that you made him male. One word: beautiful.

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. :)

I believe Sheik is a separate character too. Nintendo wasted an ultimate opportunity by not using the concept of Sheik as a separate character and make something (besides Smash Bros.) out of it, it would be awesome!

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
