Zelda Race Meme

By TehArtMonkey
Oh my God this took so long you have no idea
But oddly, it was all fun. (the colouring and shading not so much but still. Usually I get sick of memes when still doing the lines and shizz.)

My computer can't really handle the filesize. Whoops.

Anyway um. Yes. I love Zelda, this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone really. I'd wanted to do this meme for a long time but could never decide who to use. Finally settled on En cause... idk. I just did.

One thing I really liked about this meme was how differntly I had to draw some of them. Like the really round face for Goron and pointy noses for Zora and Gerudo and all that fun stuff. I need more diversity in my characters...

Ya'll know I like to over-explain so:

Hylian: Obviously just normal old Endrant but with elfy ears and more medieval-y made clothes.

Fairy: Because I didn't wanna cop-out and just do a little ball of light. He's so unhappy. =w=

Garo: Okay so. I actually added Hylian, Fairy and Garo. (Great Fairy down there was originally just Fairy) Because I wanted to. And because it made sense to me. idk why there was no Hylian or just a plain "this is what my character looks like normally" box but... Meh. Garo was because I couldn't find another race on the Wiki and this had their own page as a race so yeah. And love MM.

Goron: Never liked Gorons. (Fun fact: When I was little, I thought they were Potato People. I still call them that sometimes.) Though it was nice to know I CAN draw a fatty if I wanted to =w=

Zora: Much love for the Zora. Everyone loves the Zora (as far as I can tell). Even n is kinda happy to be a Zora :D

Deku: Deku were always so cute. I kept fighting with myself about having En have normal wooden hands or those leaves, but he needs long sleeves anyway so leaves it was. (fun fact: I always used to pronounce Deku as "Dew-ka." I'm retarded.)

Rito: I always liked the Rito, too. And ya'll know I love wings.

Skull Kid: Now, while I do love love LOVE MM Skull Kid, he's a character. So I went for the TP design. Which, after drawing my version and looking at some other people's versions, I actually quite like.

Twili: The little glowy markings were fun. Twili have like, long thin faces, though it doesn't look too much like it here... meh.

Gerudo: NOSE. It makes him look more manly xD Also gems and stuff cause, you know, the whole one man born every however many years is king and shit.

Sheikah: NINJA. You can't see his tiny ponytail because it's too dark, but no biggie. (fun fact: I pronounce Sheikah as "She-ki-ah." It's wrong, but I like it better.)

Minish: Everyone loves the minish. They're such cuties. Big eyyyes.

Oocca: and everyone hates the Oocca xD Hid him in a pot so I didn't have to draw much of it, but it's also fitting so HAW.

Great Fairy: I always loved the Wind Waker's Great Faries. Shading was awkward though, but it looks cool.

Tokay: I never played the Oracle games... /shame. Though I like Tokay!En, he's a cutie.

Kokiri: He doesn't look as young as he should, I guess. Maybe I should draw kids more...

Korok: I always liked these little guys. En is a sad one :c

Anouki: I played PH, but I don't remember these guys much xD Still, kinda cute I guess.

Keaton: It's hard to make Keatons look different than the normal ones. I just changed the colour and gave him a little bit of hair. And opened his eyes a tad.

Poe: (Originally "Any Enemy") Looking at other memes, seems Poe is the favourite. But I'm not gonna change my mind because of that, no sir Bc I originally did TP-Poe, but didn't like it much.

"En-En": (Originall "A Boss") So the original meme says to make a boss that suits the character, but you can use a Zelda boss if you want. I took Bongo-Bongo and edited him to be more En-ish, is all =w=

Yes, I'm done now, haha sorry xD
