It's Not Easy by kyuumu It's Not Easy by kyuumu
Well I managed to scrap up a third image...well...that's a lie. This is just another "mental screenshot" from this whole kinda story that goes on in my head. Naturally it will be different from everyone else's. I drew it because I knew I could see him with his hat on his head but...I can't remember how it got there. That part of the scene has gone blank for me...unfortunate. I think Zelda might have thrown it at him but pfft, hell if I can recall.
Anways this kinda gives away the song these three were named after. Superman (It's not easy) by Five for Fighting. Yup, good song. Good amv song...too bad it's a MPEG4!!!>< GR. *snarfs chocolate* okay I'm good.

Lucky I finally got back on my zelda kick, though I 've had a thing lately where I like it better when there are no eyes...0.o odd I know. I'm usually obsessed with eyes. Note to self, don't use image descriptions for rants...
DAMN IT CARL!

He looks like one of those strange travelers you meet outside a tavern in video games, saying things like "Strangers don't last long here," or "You really don't know, do you?"

Tis a time where a hero has fought bravely but this time, his battles have taken him to far and now his life is on its last strand... What will he do? Will there be anyone to help him or will he keep fighting death when the reaper his him in its grasp? Will it be.... An end of a legend? Or will that courage in his heart lead him on? To find his love, he will fight. He will keep going... One lat time...

So is Link turning into a Stalfos like everyone who enters the Lost Woods. That little, blond-haired Kokiri girl creeped the hell outta me when I played Ocarina of Time. *shivers* And yah, I can see how the hat is flopped weird instead of being a hood. It is hard to tell one way or the other honestly. I like this one too, even with the 'evil grin'. ;)

Oh and because of the creepy Kokiri girl, I give you a chicken like those Cuccos from Kakariko. I'm yeller, I guess. lol.

I apologize that I mistook the meaning of this as well. So Zelda saves Link in the nick of time. (Image 2) And this one shows his relief for being alive. That says more than several chapters in ANY fanfiction. Nice. I will hang onto these three for a while. ;)

Again, amazing artwork and wonderful colouring.

Hmm... I can actually sort of imagine what happened... Something along the lines of Link making light of his wounds and/or commenting that he was missing his hat. Zelda then threw his hat at him.

It's a very rough draft, but it works. Actually, would you mind if I expanded on that idea and wrote something over it? It'll be a one-shot and probably not very long... And Link will be talking.

Wait, Five for Fighting? I thought the song was "It's not easy... being green." Since Link wears green and... um, that's the automatic connection my mind made. Wow, I'm tired... :sleep:

Anyway, incredible picture. :)

It seems to me that Link is biting his lip trying not to smile, but is being slightly unsuccessful. Whatever he said to Zelda must have been funny, for her to throw his hat at him. :D

Ok! Will do!!
I'm still writing it, It’s turning out to be a full-fledged short story. :)
It's about 7 pages long, not counting title page. I'll probably have to make a second file to put up here, without the pictures in it, just links to the pictures.

I've never posted a story here on dA, hopefully it won't mess up my formatting...

He's also concealing his pain in front of her (you can see it in his mouth too)...maybe that's what his comment was about.
