I'd go black and blue by Shadow7Zerudahime I'd go black and blue by Shadow7Zerudahime
I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love


Make you feel my love. Bob Dylan

Link/Zelda

So, back in february, I commented on one of my journals that I had a somehow long and complicated project between hands. You're seeing the fourth delivery of it.

Basically, what I want to do is take a song, divide it by stanzas and draw something that fits every stanza separately. I had many options for the song, but I ended up choosing 'Make you feel my love' because it allowed me a level of tenderness none of the others did.

This one is possibly my favorite pose in this whole project. I tweaked the original lineart (Which contained a half-arsed bg) a little and played a lot with the ilumination to make it how I wanted. Very content with the result.

I really like this! My only critique would be that I wish we could see a bit of Link's head or face, rather than just the hat. It kind of makes it look like he has no head.

:iconshadow7zerudahime:
Shadow7Zerudahime Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, well, about that, the project this is part of has the particularity that I'm trying to use character's bodies to convey the emotion rather than the faces. But thank you for your critique! I'll keep it in mind not to hide character's heads completely.

Navi! Get outta there! You're not part of that! XD

But the pose for this is just beautiful. The way that Link is holding the back of her head just adds to the beauty and obvious love there is between the two in the games! :iconzelinkplz:

I love the emotion in this- again I really like the fact you can't see their faces, it adds to the tenderness. I adore the firefly and the stark contrast between its light and the dark gloom around it :)

:hug: Thanks so much, hun! I'm glad you like the no-face policy, since I was sort of insecure as to how much impact the pics would have without them :meow:

Btw...it's a fairy! Tee-hee :B in the Zelda!Universe fairies are little balls of lights like that one.

Some great examples to check out:

First two links are by Lynott, third is by Plant. Anything from Townshend (from The Who) and Waters (from Pink Floyd) is great.
