I totally agree! I am a long time LoZ fan and while I loved other versions of her (example, Sheik!) I really like this incarnation of Zelda. She's sweet and feminine, but not in a weak kind of way. She's got a REAL personality. All of her doubts and insecurities, wanting to be more, afraid of not being good enough. We even see more of a strained relationship with her and Link and her determination to prove herself. Her character is really refreshing.
Not to mention that Link literally failed and she had to hold things down for a hundred freaking years. Like everyone she loved was gone, but she held on and did everything she was able to. I just love it. She saved him, and then he saved her. They saved each other.
And thank you!
I had a lot of fun painting her, especially the eyes
