moar realism practice XD by TixieLix moar realism practice XD by TixieLix
Been getting back to traditional art lately, and still practicing for that comp submission.

For all intent and purposes, I wanted to focus on imagining Link's facial features in a more realistic style, hence why I left the rest as unshaded linework. I'm not sure whether I would dare try this realism thing on another character other than him and Vega, and I certainly hope I pulled it off better this time than the last when I unintentionally made Link look like a little boy >.<" He's always a man in my head LOL

Apologies again for the bad photo skills. I tried to sharpen the image in photoshop, but not sure that worked too well >.>

I think I love the background the most here, though the sketch is wonderful. The off-white background adds a sepia quality I have always enjoyed in art.

It looks good, but it bugs me how he has such a small nose.
