Shiek from 'The Legend of Zelda'

No. Shiek is not a dude.
She's never been.
It's just a trap.

EDIT -
My goodness, I never knew this one would be THAT popular.
All I can say is thank you for your kind words and comments, its what really keeps me going with these things. I'm glad ya'll like it!

Nice use of various textures to give more depth to Sheik's design.  The lighting, textures, and colors combine well to create the illusion of a photo taken in the desert.

when i was a little girl, i always chose Sheik as my character in a N64 game- apart from all of the other Nintendo characters. i never picked a princess with a dress.

i always picked Sheik.

i felt like i related to her. i didn't understand why. i just did.

This. Is. So AMAZING! Absolutely incredible. I am in love with this picture and clearly the internet is too, given how many sites have used this without crediting you :)

I'm so glad I was finally able to find this and find you. I look forward to seeing what you do next! Beautiful work!

W-wow, this is amazing. Chibi-Rine-Hime (who I can't seem to insert a dA icon for, dangit) has the right of it; this looks like it came straight out of a movie. Amazing work! I love the eye, especially, and how feminine she looks (as she should!). Superb! Thank you so much for sharing!

Sorry I see all this discussion stuff below and felt like I should give my two cents.

I'm pretty sure the idea was that Sheik intended for it to SEEM like she was a boy. But if you put metallic (and let's just assume it's supper realistic too) paint over a wooden table and say the table is made of metal, people might believe you and think it's made of metal, but the table is still made of wood. It's just the wooden table is disguised as a metal table.

Zelda is still a woman as Sheik. It's a disguise and character she created, so maybe she was like "Okay, Sheik will be a boy. That will make the disguise much more effective." In order for Sheik to actually be a boy though, Zelda would have actually had to change a part of who she is entirely. That means magically changing her sex. While she could have physically changed her sex, she would PROBABLY also have to alter her gender MENTALLY because inside she's still a woman. (We're assuming that Zelda is really going all out on making Sheik actually be a boy, but these steps would be totally unnecessary in the process) Now if she did that, it could be very problematic because she could accidentally BECOME the character she created and stop being Zelda altogether as she feels more like the man she created rather than the princess she used to be.

So maybe Sheik the DISGUISE was intended as a boy, but physically and mentally Sheik is a girl.
