How to Draw Link Easy

Step 1.


In this tutorial we will not only be drawing Link in full body, you will also be draw three different types of head shots. Let's begin with making the shapes for the body frame. Start by drawing a circle for the head, and then draw the guidelines for   

Step 2.


For Link in full body form, draw out the shape of his face, as well as his hair. Draw in the eyebrows, then jump to the heads and begin sketching out the hairstyles for them as well. The head at the bottom is Toon Link so he gets a much simplistic ha   

Step 3.


Using the facial guidelines, you will start drawing in Link's eyes, as well as his nose, mouth and ear. When that is done draw the elf style hat he is always wearing, and be sure to color in the pupils in his eyes. As for the head shots, you will nee   

Step 4.


In each of these steps I will always start with drawing another part of Link to the left of the image. Start by drawing his neck, then draw the collar of his shirt as well as the right shoulder, and sleeve. make the stitch lining to form the sleeve a   

Step 5.


We will continue to work on getting Link all drawn out by switching over to the left hand side to draw the other shoulder and sleeve. Once you have gotten the shoulder and sleeve sketched out, you need to add some detailing around his neck and along    

Step 6.


We will focus on just drawing Link now. Let's finish drawing his arm, then draw in the hand. You will need to also draw the undershirt sleeve, then detail it with bands around the forearm and wrist.

Step 7.


For this step all you have to do is draw in his legs, boots and feet. Link's pants are tucked into the boots which means you will need to make lips around the top to separate the boot from the pants.

Step 8.


Sketch in some stitching detailing to the pants and then add detailing to the boots like so. Once you feel confident that Link looks good, you can start erasing the mistakes to prepare this hero for color.

Step 9.


Here you have a drawing on Link. I hope you found this tutorial useful as well as entertaining.

Thanks for the nicely detailed tutorial! But I would find it helpful if you showed how to draw the shield in this tutorial, as Link seems incomplete without it!

Description: You guys didn't think I was going to make all these easy based tutorials that I have been submitting lately without making a lesson on one of my beloved video game characters of all did you? I will start this brand new day by showing you guys "how to draw Link easy", step by step. One of my favorite aspects of this lesson is how I break down Link in a whole new way showing you different views of his head, as well as showing you how to make him look like he does as Toon Link. Even though the sketch in the main image may seem hard, that was just a sketch I did for fun. I thought it would be cool to have a sketched image of Link instead of a colored drawing just to switch things up a bit. Link has always been one of my favorite figures for years because the Zelda game series was one of the first video games I ever played. He's almost like a friend that I have known for years. His looks almost never change, and his personality stays the same. All the stories that has been generated over time to create a new Zelda game has always played a role in my artistic view of things. It took me about two hours to draw and lay out the entire lesson, but I'm sure it would have taken me longer if I was to color Link in instead of leaving him as a sketch. Anyways, I have a feeling that a lot of people will enjoy drawing Link easy because for many, he is loved too. I will return in a while with more drawing fun so stay tuned in to see what I have in store for you all next. Peace out people and enjoy!
