I've never been wholly convinced that Link *isn't* a girl, to be honest. His features are somewhat feminine, his voice is fairly androgynous, and it would explain the apparent ambiguity in his relationship with Zelda.
Regardless, excellent concept painting, thank you for this.
Haha awesome. Surprisingly many people still fall for that joke, resulting in the most funny discussions (I have some experience with that.. www.theshirtlist.com/what-if-z…. But it would be really cool if they made your female "Zelda" an option to choose at the beginning of the game... I WANNA SAVE PRINCE LINK.
