Silent Princess by KLSteeleArt Silent Princess by KLSteeleArt
I so much enjoyed this game and the relationships developed for the characters. Yes, so Zelda was not exactly likable at first, but the exploration of her character and growth through variations means through the game (without giving away spoilers) truly put her in a special light and showcased Link and her's relationship and the depths that it goes.

It is a really amazing render overall, can't say I played the game but have they explained where does it take place in regards to the Zelda timeline?

That's up in the air. Nintendo has already stated the old timeline is being redone to incorporate the information delved in the new games. It will start with Skyward Sword though. Based on the information in Breath of the Wild the references past games - Breath of the Wild will probably be newest with the others needing to be filled inbetween. Since it is cleared up in Skyward Sword that all of these games are reincarnations of the Hero and Princes (Link and Zelda in Skyward Sword) - they will have an easier time pinpoint things on the timeline than before these two games. We just have to wait and see.

She wasn't anti-link. I think is is easy to interpret it that way. She was anti-"hero". Link as a person had nothing to do with it. It was the fact that they both had a role to fill, destined to do so as the princess and hero reincarnated and Link had so easily, in her mind, obtained the Master Sword and wielded it flawlessly. She took it as a failure on her part for not being able to fulfull her role and use sealing magic. It hurt her, like there was something wrong with her. This happens all to often in real life. As she got to know Link as a person, outside his role, she was able to see that he struggled to and still does - that she is not the only person having internal struggles with their roles. If you find certain things in the game, you will glimpse more into Zelda's true relationship with Link and how they had a very strong bond which accumulated to the final scenes -showing they were in fact being shipped as an item.

I also chose to keep her hair more of a natural color for these pieces. The golden color is not realistic to my style. She's blonde was the point they were making in the game.

An anti-hero is defined as a person who lacks conventional moral attributes - meaning while they end up being a hero - it is not the cause of their motives. So this is not the correct word. If you mean antagonist - she is also not that as she is not the evil negative force in the game to the main character. Link never sees her as an antagonist that he has to battle and win against - so this is also wrong. Zelda is more a Foil Character, a character who contrasts with the protagonist to highlight particular qualities in another character, usually the protagonist(Link). She is 100% not anti-link - she is anti-destiny roles. This information of why she is angry comes to fruition in the cut scenes, and you learn that it was never Link himself who was the issue.

I'm glad this came up in my feed, this painting is amazing, and I'm honestly not good with describing things, so I'll just say it's Epic, and just so beautiful. Also I loved Zelda throughout the entire game 😂
