-- Legend of Zelda : Spirit Tracks -- by Kurama-chan -- Legend of Zelda : Spirit Tracks -- by Kurama-chan
Drawing for [link] contest.
The couple I've chosen to participate was Link and Zelda
I selected the Spirit Tracks version because I was recently playing this game, and I liked how they interact in this game.
I wanted to do this couple because I always liked the pure relationship between them. It's rare to see such a cute relationship nowadays, and I tried to preserve it in the drawing.
The contest asks about how they meet each other. I would consider the situation similar with the game. Link meets Zelda in a ceremony and then later joins in an adventure to rescue her body, so their friendship starts to get stronger during the hardships they face together.
In this scene, I imagine the world in peace, with Zelda not being a ghost, so they can finally not worry about anything and be happy.

I ordered Spirit Tracks just a few hours ago, actually. (How I never got around to buying it until now, I just don't know...) I do have Phantom Hourglass, though. (I can warp to the end in 0min 0sec lol)

Pure, relationship, suuuuuuuure. And why exactly do you think he wants to rescue her body...? ;)
Just kidding. But he is always trying to kiss her in the series and totally getting denied. 25 years with no success, might be time to pursue a new girl... just sayin'

*ahem* pervy comments aside, I absolutely hated this game (evil train god, what?) despite my love for the series... but my god Zelda is cute here. I absolutely love your artstyle for both full size and chibi draws! :heart:

I don't know XD
There was a very old gossip that they could be brothers, and since that I think it's cute to view their relationship as a platonic one.

I think Link has the same troubles as the other Nintendo male characters that have a princess to help XD

Aaah, I have a serious case of love-hate with this game. I'm not sure if it's because the stylus..so annoying controling Link with that. I also can tell that playing with the train isn't nice too. I don't feel like doing the side quests because of that.
I'm glad you appreciated this style, thanks!

Yeah, after watching the Zelda animated series with Link being like "Heeeeeey Princess, it's smooching time!" every 5 minutes or so, and the totally flirty way Zelda talks to him all through Skyward Sword, it's totally not entirely platonic.

And you're welcome. ^^

Argh, look what you're considering. That horrible animated series! XD
And Skyward Sword was the first game I really consider they could really be a couple.
Then she says in the end "you'll always...be my friend..."

I was mostly kidding about the animated series. You're right about it being total crap. But Link gets friendzoned to the max. OOT? "Oh hi Link, I'm gonna pretend to be a guy so you won't hit on me. Oh crap you found out and then had to fight the King of Darkness to save me? Let me send you back in time so we can forget this ever happened and I won't have to kiss you or anything." ...Bitch.

Wind Waker? "Oh you went out of your way to save me even though I tried to rob you and lied to you about who I was and got kidnapped AGAIN and you had to fight the King of Darkness AS A KID... let me shoot these balls of light at you to try and KILL YOU so we never have to be together. ...Damn, you survived? Uhh... well, smell ya later kid, thanks for nothin'!"

And then Skyward Sword, "Hey Link, it's totally obvious you like me and I know you picked every flirty choice in the game and I ALWAYS responded positively, but in the end I'm just a tease who's going to friendzone you even though you're a manly man who saved the world and not a douche like Groose and would basically be perfect for me."

I am really glad most girls aren't like Zelda, tbh.

That series is just good for youtube poops. I really doubt you would actually like it XD
I imagined a hardcore fan yelling "Don't bring non canon stuff to the conversation!"

LMAO Have you noticed that Zelda always get kidnapped when she shows her real form? XD
And then she suddenly gets weaker too, like she can't fight for herself.
But for some reason, I can't avoid loving her.
She used to be like a saint for me when I was a child, now I see lots of flaws in her and her personality, but I still like her

I read in the official Nintendo magazine that in Skyward Sword it would happen a scene that never happened in other Zelda games, and all the fans would be surprised and happy. I though "will they finally kiss?" .............well, it was not that :iconotlplz:
See, I need to keep shipping my platonic dream! Or I will be disappointed like this! XD

That cute train, green background, blue sky and little Zelda & Link~ :iconx3v2plz:
It would probably take me too long to draw a train o__o I'm jealous of your background skills :heart:
And I wanna pull Zelda's cheeks ! She looks pretty cute with a smile :heart: x3
Link is also so cute but.. I suppose you tried a new way of coloring eyes ? :3
I love your usual style, but maybe Link was hypnotised of the happiness that Zelda gave him, or remembering the past~ ?
I'm sure I just destroyed the plot of game.. XD

Lovely work dear, good luck in the contest :huggle:

Yes, usually I color Link eyes blue, but this time I tried to color like the original art of Spirit Tracks - [link]
I usually get annoyed with such simple eyes, but I forced myself to try at least once. Maybe I can color his eyes totally black another time?
And haha, I need inspiration to create a little plot for the contest too! XD

Thanks!
