Halo artist re-imagines a realistic Legend of Zelda hero

It’s always interesting seeing things from a new set of eyes. In this case, it’s a re-imagining of Link from Halo artist Kyle Hefley, who currently works for 343 Industries, handling character designs.

This art is more of a realistic take on the hero, and can be viewed in monochrome format or full color, complete with Navi. He definitely looks more western, that’s for sure, and if Nintendo ever decided to let another developer handle the series, I actually don’t mind this look all that much.
