This quick sketch was done much more recently in late November. It was a preliminary sketch for a t-shirt design I wanted to make for a friend's Christmas present. It was going to be Link, holding a shield and throwing a Boomerang in mid-air. As you can see, over the last year or so, I've gotten much better with action poses (thanks to some advice from different online comic artists), but I still have trouble pulling away from the anime wannabe art of my youth... Hopefully I can find a good balance.
I'm still mildly pleased with the final product, even if the t-shirt never came to fruition and I didn't even get to ink the drawing. Link has always been one of my favorite characters to draw since he's so recognizable, but I never feel as if I do him justice. He's always either too manly or too feminine.
So what do you guys think? Does this interest you at all? Is my stuff really that horrible? Would be interested in seeing more? Let me know!
