How to Draw Anime Link

Artist: Dawn / September 8, 2013

Step 1.

To begin you will need to make two shapes, one for the head and the other for the torso. Sketch in the facial guidelines then draw the arm and hand guides.

Step 2.

Sketch out the shape of Link's face like so, and start the hair line. Remember, Link has bangs that sway to one side.

Step 3.

Use the facial guidelines to draw in the eyes, then add the nose, mouth and blush marks on the cheeks. Oh yeah, don't forget the eyebrows.

Step 4.

Continue to work on Link's hair by drawing the shape of the head. Make sure that the ends are pointed.

Step 5.

Completely draw out the entire outline of Link's broad sword like you see here. The blade and everything should be drawn.

Step 6.

Sketch out the shape of Link's necm then draw the shoulder, and chest. Since this is a female version of Link, you have to draw in the humps or bumps. Add the belt across the chest like so, then move along to step seven.

Step 7.

Add the buckle and sketch in more detailing to the chest or clothing. Draw the rest of Link's hat which is the cone shape.

Step 8.

Draw the sleeve and arm like so, then begin the shoulder on the left or right side.

Step 9.

Sketch out the entire torso shape like so, then draw in the short sleeve. Add another belt across the chest, then move to the last step.

Step 10.

All you have to do now is draw in the rest of Link's arm followed by the definition and detailing to the body, and sword. You know I can't stick around because there is more for me to upload.

Step 11.

Description: Here is the second Link and I'm hoping that you will all understand what I was trying to do here. All I was doing was filling s suggestion by more than a couple people to make a tutorial on "how to draw anime Link". The catch is, this Link is a she, not a he. You are basically drawing similar shapes and object, the only thing that will be different is the breast and the feminine looks to this version of drawing anime Link. He is still awesome and worth a thousand rewards. I really enjoyed making this female anime version of Link.
