And the winner is........ BLUE!! HURRAY!!:dummy:
The blueish colours have won by a total of TWO votes!! Seriously TWO VOTES!! I have counted EVERYTHING! All votes on previous and following polls on DA, all comments on DA and Tumblr and of course everything else I received! Cx It was an amazingly close shot right there, I am so surprised. Yet it shows me that there are indeed many things to messure when making a concept. You can't make everybody happy, but I noticed a lot that it wasn't just the colour people appreciated, but the concept itself. That makes me very happy.
Of course I have also included my person thoughts on the costume! Like what did I want to show with it? I read every suggestion and thoughts of yours carefully, thinking if I was doing the right thing or if I could possibly manage to get that same result by changing some details on the final costume? There was seriously a lot to think about and I am really thankful for your supportive words and votes!:heart:
Now enjoy this! I really put my heart into it! > u <

Your outfit design is a wonder! I wish Nintendo would use it somehow in a future game.

Thank you so much darling, your comment gives me the feels srsly!
I would very much love to work with Nintendo of course, but I am quite sure they won't take any notice of me. (being a girl AND a foreigner) 9 H   6

I've taken a look at your Zelda (re)designs (which are fabulous, by the way), but for some reason this one really stand out to me. I like the Zelda universe as it is, but if they were to use designs upgraded to those of your level, I would not complain at all (quite the contrary even).

ohh, so since he uses a bow, does his bow have a certain design to it/special kind or is it just an ordinary looking bow?

I planed him to have a small choice of bows to carry with him for fights. Similiar to the concept used in Skyward Sword, with less weapon variation but more variation of one weapon. I wanted to focus his weapon collection on the weapons Link uses the most. Creating different kinds of bows/arrows, bombs and some variation in clothing. Similiar to the upgrades you could have for your weapons in SS. Like a magic bow can shoot magic arrows such as fire/ice/light arrows, a tech bow can shoot drill arrows that go through heavy armour and thief arrows that steal treasures and rupees from the enemy.
So yes, most of his weapons have specific designs depending on their level of developement and type of weapon. (magic bow: longer, slimmer, elegant / tech bow: thicker, heavier, modern, etc.)

And no worry, Link is still wearing a sword and shield primarily. I just haven't designed those yet. *sneaks away in shame*
