Princess Zelda by Zolaida Princess Zelda by Zolaida
*Edit: There were a LOT of people calling Zelda fat in my picture, and since my anatomy knowledge became a little stronger since I drew this, I edited her frame according to her body type :) I also made changes to the face, and I uploaded the picture in a bigger version (hit the download button). I thought I'd let you guys know! :heart:

I'm gonna call this finished! Princess Zelda, from the Legend of Zelda, my chilhood Link La 
I loved her look the most in Twilight Princess, and I like her character the most in Skyward Sword. Both such great games ;^; So I thought I'd do a fanart of one of the versions (for now hehe). It was really difficult to actually envision something so important to me, let alone if I drew Link :scared:

I drew Midna before, see here.

Follow my tumblr and twitter for more minor updates! You can also see the sketch of this on my tumblr or twitter.

While I do wish you hadn't changed her body type, since I'm sure she was gorgeous even then, I do love the powerful pose, angle, colors, and her fierce, determined expression. That expression, those eyes, are seriously about to make me swoon. She's a royal I could definitely respect! She is beautiful, and she is strong, and you're portraying her both ways here, so great job! :highfive:
I wish I could sword-fight with Zelda. *^* I'd lose horribly, but it'd be an excellent experience. xD

I never thought the first version was fat, in fact, I thought she was perfect. Zelda's not a twig, she just has wide hips. :/ 
People are dumb, but I still love this piece. <3

Thanks so much :hug: In my eyes she has a "normal" body type as well. She's a strong lady! I hope I can draw her another time to perfect that :heart:

Next time you draw her, base her body off of what YOU think she would have. TP!Zelda has a more "masculine" frame as well, when compared to SS!Zelda or OOT!Zelda. She's also athletic, and she has better things to worry about than being an anorexic supermodel. 
Besides, love comes in all shapes and sizes~! Good luck hon.

Ahhh you are right 100% ;_; It was hard to stand by my point of view while many people thought otherwise. It's one of the hardships of the internet I suppose, but at least I always grow stronger from it :)
Thank you so much for the support,  it really means a lot :heart:
