Link [CC] [WIP] [NSFW?]

on: February 28, 2014, 01:09:57 am
Decided to take a break from my game and do something for fun. I did a doodle of this in class and my girlfriend thought it was hilarious, so I decided to pixel it. Its in the style of A Link to the Past. Any suggestions?

Anything you see that comes to mind... style, color, readability, etc.

It is possible he just wanted to share the fact that he has a girlfriend who finds sexual Zelda jokes hilarious.

Frankly, I don't blame him.




As far as suggestions... this looks more like Chip and/or Dale than Link to me. If this is intended to be published as a joke, maybe make it a little bit bigger so you can give Link a sleazy grin and make his face and pointy ears more recognisable.

@ cels

 ;D ;D ;D Or maybe he was trying to suggest something, while he was drawing this. ;)

He mostly used reference like this

so it's very close.

@PsylentKnight

You should try to make your original fan art, maybe change the perspective ,position, size etc. not just copy exact pixel placement.

I enjoy humor like this a lot.
The image is funny but somewhat empty.
I think Link is talking to me, but I'm not really sure.
It's not really a scene or an interaction, just an image and some text, if that makes any sense.
Add another character, Zelda, Gannon, an Octorock, I dunno.
Someone for him to talk to, and them to be disgusted, confused, happy, or something.
Jokes like this are usually funnier with bystanders.
The placement of the rupee is somewhat odd.
Like he could be sitting on it?
But I want to think its poking forward out of his pants like a penis, what with that being the point of the joke.
Honestly I'd rather see something much more graphic.
But I understand if you are not comfortable with doing that.
Or you just want it to be a joke that is more about inuendo and subtle visual pun.

@cels:
The sole purpose of this post wasn't to brag about my girlfriend, but I had to throw that in.  ;)

As Harvey noted, my piece is pretty much a carbon copy of ALttP's Link... so I can't really see him as looking like Chip and/or Dale. But yes, I agree that it should be bigger. I just didn't want it to come off as shoddy fan art, but I suppose that's what it really is haha.


@Harvey:
She doesn't need much suggestion haha. ;)

Its really meant to be more of a funny "f*** you" type thing... but I really don't have a lot of purpose here, I just enjoy using juvenile euphemisms whenever possible.
 
I agree that I should bring my own composition into it.


@PPD:
I agree that it looks like he's sitting on the rupee... as I told the others, I'll be making a larger piece to make things more clear. 

Its meant to be as Link addressing the viewer... perhaps when I do a larger piece, I could go with the perspective at his feet looking up, and his sparkling winky (Linky? I think I'm trying too hard now) dangling down towards the viewer.

I'll do a rough sketch tonight.





Thanks for the help everyone! :)
