Along the way in making this, I got lost in the fun of creating a more realized illustration. The textures and palette choices made this stray from the initial "feeling" that inspired this, but I'm quite happy with the result of this artistic meandering. You can find details, including a close-up image, after the jump.
I liked the idea of Link being covered in dirt (dungeon-crawling is dirty work!), so a bit of effort went into getting some textures happening to show he's already been in the thick of it (I'm also pretty keen on that buckle—looks like candy!).
