How to Draw Link and Zelda Kissing

Artist: Dawn / August 6, 2013

Step 1.

You will have to draw the two shapes of their head guides like so. You will then sketch in the neck and shoulder guides as well.

Step 2.

We will start by sketching out the side profile of Zelda's face as her eyes are closed and her lips are puckered. Sketch in the blush marks on her cheek, then add the lashes to her closed eye.

Step 3.

Next, draw in her signature tiara which rests on her forehead instead of the crown of her head. Add the strands that hang down the sides of her face, then sketch in the shape of her elven ear. You will also need to detail the tiara as well as inside    

Step 4.

Sketch out the rest of Zelda's head shape in the form of her long straight hair. Add detailing to her hair like so, then add a barrette of some sorts to the back of the head.

Step 5.

To finish Zelda off simply sketch out the shape of her shoulder, then draw in the form of her neck. Add detailing to her braided hair strand like so, then proceed to step six.

Step 6.

Let's get started with Link. The first thing we will do is sketch out the style of his hair. We will focus on the front part of the hair which is the bangs and sides. Notice how his hair feathers away from the face.

Step 7.

Next, sketch out the jawline and chin, then sketch in the eyebrow, closed eye and then some blush marks on his chin as well.

Step 8.

We will complete the shape of Link's head by first sketching out the shape of the hat, then finish the hairstyle. Add detailing to his hat and hair like so, then draw in his elven ear as well as define the inside of the ear.

Step 9.

You will Sketch out the collar and then draw the back and shoulder for his torso. Make sure that Link's body is bigger than Zelda's because he is a man and she is a woman. Add wrinkling to the clothing, then erase the mistakes.

Step 10.

Here is how the sketch looks when everything is cleaned up. You are now ready to color in the two characters from Legend of Zelda, and remember you can tweak the concept any way you like.

Description: Are you guys ready to be hypnotized by the awesomeness and cuteness of this lesson on "how to draw Link and Zelda kissing", step by step. I just had to make a tutorial on these two main characters from The Legend of Zelda series. Everyone knows that Link and Zelda have a thing for one another but they never act upon each others feelings. I think they make such a cute couple, and if you remember back about a year or two ago, I did a lesson on Zelda and Link just hanging out as they sit on a grassy hilltop together. This is an older version of the two. I drew them in their late teens so the kiss looks mature instead of childlike. I really love the way that these characters came out and I wouldn't be surprised to see this tutorial on drawing Link and Zelda kissing in the Top 50. So go ahead and have some epic fun as you tackle this tut. I will be back in a few with other stuff for you guys to draw. Peace people.
