As many know, my brother Paul is a big Legend of Zelda cosplayer, so when we started to redesign our sign for festivals, I started this painting. We decided not to use it for our sign, but I finished it anyways.

About Link:

Link (Japanese: ??? Hepburn: Rinku?) refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo‘s The Legend of Zelda series. Link has been also featured in other media from Nintendo, including its merchandising, comic books, and a cartoon series, becoming one of Nintendo’s main icons as well as one of the most well-known and popular characters in video game history.

Through The Legend of Zelda series, Link is depicted as a child, teenager, or adult of the Hylian race, originating from the fictional land of Hyrule. Link often travels through Hyrule, defeating creatures, evil forces, and the series’ primary antagonist, Ganon, while attempting to save Princess Zelda and Hyrule. To defeat him, Link usually requires the mystic Master Sword and Light Arrows, or a similar legendary weapon, obtained after many trials and battles. In the course of his journey he will typically acquire various other magical objects or items, including musical instruments and weaponry.
