Hero of Time sketch

Reading GameSpite's take on Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in their newest Quarterly got me reminiscing on the feeling I used to get from playing the game when I was a wee lad. It was colorful and adventurous, with a little grit, like everything was eroded by sand, wind, and time. That feeling made me want to explore creating my ideal interpretation of Link, with bits and pieces of his design that I liked throughout the years amalgamated into one. This definitely needs coloring to really get my idea across, but for now I thought I'd share this sketch.
