Linkle by DanHowardArt Linkle by DanHowardArt
done for the Character Design Challenge on facebook.   My take on Linkle.

A few things I changed:

- single crossbow b/c how the hell do you reload 2 crossbows??????

- if you're gonna be tossing around arrows like water balloons, dressing like little-green-riding-hood-in-booty-shorts isn't gonna work out in your favor.

"how the hell do you reload 2 crossbows??????"

How the hell do you fire them like glocks is the better question.

Thanks :)   I'm really loving the "manly" Link and Sheik pictures, personally.

Eh...   I mean you could potentially have an ammo-clip system built into the crossbow which would help reset the bolt after each shot. The problem is getting the crossbow ready to shoot again. So, while cool because it's a bs way of dual wielding pistols, it's just not feasible lol. I'd, like, rather she just simplify it with a shortbow or something, or better yet keep all of the core items Link traditionally has had.

Hell, give her the crossbow Link had in Link's Crossbow Training!

was probably one of those "it's un-practical but it looks cool" decisions

*nod* I also kind of wish they didn't call her Linkle. I wish she was just "Link" across the gender spectrums.

She does have the crossbow from the Link's Crossbow Training as one of the three designs for her three levels of weapons, and the way that she reloads is that she uses the ground as leverage. Watch some game footage and you can see how they accomplish it with her.

What an awesome rendition of Linkle. I agree with your reasoning. I think they were trying to spice up Linkle instead of just looking like a female Link.

eh, I suppose the cuter rendition is closer to the Nintendo's design for the world.   Mine certainly wouldn't be their cup of tea. lol

I would say so. Yours would be like if she entered the universe of Elder Scrolls or Dragon Age. ;)
