Hey guys! Here's a sketch I did for a piece I'm planning to submit to a video game zine being put together by Jimmy Giegerich. The zine will feature work by a bunch of artists putting their own spin on their favorite old school 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, or 64-bit video games/characters.
I was torn between doing something based on Mario or The Legend of Zelda, so I thought I'd just combine them into something weird. My idea was that Link caught something during a visit to the Mushroom Kingdom, and he returned to Hyrule with a full-blown infection. Ummm...It sounds really gross when I describe it, but hopefully you like the image:
I'm really excited to work on the final. I'm having a lot of fun with this so far!
