I don’t typically draw a lot of fan art, but if there’s one franchise to which I’d be willing to make an illustrated offering, it’s to Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series. I’ve been a huge fan of the games since I was a kid, and with Breath of the Wild coming out in just a couple weeks, a little artistic fandom seemed appropriate.
Playing through the series as a kid, I especially appreciated the series’ silent protagonist. For some reason, the lack of chatter made it easier for me to project myself into the role of the swashbuckling hero. So even though this drawing looks nothing like me, this is more or less how I pictured myself gallivanting around Hyrule, destroying baddies. So, I guess you could say this is my “Linksona.”
P.S. I’m on Instagram now! Feel free to follow me for sketches, work-in-progress shots, and the occasional polished piece. https://www.instagram.com/erinlferguson/
