The critique, as promised! This is for ProjectComment projectcomment.deviantart.com/.

Unbelievable; just unbelievable. Taking The Legend of Zelda and making it a western? I'm going to confess something to you that I've only told a scant few: Eons ago, I was considering doing the same to Rurouni Kenshin! Maybe I'll follow up on it now with a commission or two. Just maybe...

Anyway, onto serious matters. This is so beautifully rendered that even I can barely describe it. The way the colors and texture are used give Zelda's pants the look of realistic khaki. I love her outfit overall, mostly because of how well layered it is. Every fold of it is drawn to where nothing looks flat or two dimensional. It really looks like something out of a Playstation game. I just love the bandoliers on her midsection, by the way. That's one of the marks of the western.

Oh, and the guns? I really can't go into description about them because of how well they came out. I'm not well versed in guns, anyway, so I'll just go with the appearance themselves. They're good.

I really like the update on Zelda's appearance, too. She no longer looks like a regal elfen princess. Sure, she still has the elf ears, but now she has a Native American tan, dirtier hair, and she looks tougher. This is not the Zelda we see in the games who always needs to be rescued. She might even rescue Link! I love the idea.

The hat and the long coat are my favorite features. Both of those are turn ons for me, especially the long coat.

For once, I can't really find anything to be critical on. You've created a true masterpiece. I love the concept, the character, the design, everything! You truly shine in this. Nice work. Welcome to The List.

It feels very satisfying to look at this. I had no idea how much I wanted to see a western Zelda until I've seen it.

I didnt either until it jumped in my head... my thoughts were Zelda is the heir to a large family ranch, but dreamt of a more adventurous life, so left home to become a robin hood style train robber, but when her father refuses to sell the ranch to the Ganon railroad company. Ganon sends his goons, who seriously injure her father and leave him for dead, and kidnap a handsome stable hand named Link. Word reaches the hardened Zelda and she returns home, and hell comes with her. :)
