Is this how knights behave?! by Junryou-na-Kokoro Is this how knights behave?! by Junryou-na-Kokoro
Before Link begins his journey, he must have endured
some beatings from Groose at the Knight Academy.
Thankfully he had some friends to step in and help.

So blinking DELIGHTED to be done with this piece.
It's been nearly a year in the works, off and on.
You can see the work-in-progress on my Tumblr.

This just makes me think of how I wanted to play Pipit instead of Link in SS. Much more interesting character.
Great work!

This is incredible! The concept is not only completely plausible, but also fits the personalities of the characters perfectly. Even the style that you drew this piece in is so close to the game that it literally looks like it was a screenshot directly from it. Overall I'm impressed with this in both concept and artwork and I couldn't agree more with *Contraltissimo! Fantastic work! :D

This is amazing. I love the story this picture tells- utterly believable, with Groose being the bully that he was, and Pipit's sense of honor, and his protectiveness of the underclassman. And there's well-meaning but timid Fledge, standing by. There's so much to love in this piece- the expressions, the body language, the detail (like Pipit's chainmail), the lighting and color. I love it!

Link has been bullied, but with the help of his friends and his eternal courage; the chosen hero of the Goddess always gets back up on his feet.

Oh Pipit you self-righteous..... :XD:

THIS. IS. AMAZING. :iconexcitedlaplz: Aoh gads, what perfect composition, what crisp and beautiful linework and coloring, what great perspective, what brilliant posing, what vibrant backgroundinggggggGGGGG!!!! :la:

There is just so much emotion and story in this piece. SO much life. :XD: Oh gads their expresssiooonnnnnns. Hnnng. :heart: Right down to the exact shapes of all their faces and features, I can see how much blood sweat and tears you poured into this thing. Haha, Pipit's diamondy little pixie-squint, Groose's weird half-moon eyes.... Fledge's whole pose is just precious.... and Link. Aogh that is a great pose. Man, that kid.... :XD: His face looks a little squished and weird at this resolution, but.... I don't suppose it can be helped; he looks like he took some serious butt-whoopin' here. Anybody's face'd be messed up after tangling with that big oaf Groose! :laughing:

My gosh. Just beautiful beautiful all over. :clap:

Some day, maybe. SOME DAY. Though, I think the creator of LoZ prefers Link not to talk, so it could be difficult.
