I must've gone through almost 15 different variations of this piece. Most just not working what so ever. With a handful not keeping the story I was going for. After doing some client work and coming back to this I feel confident in this one. It's a bit of an homage to a certain Zelda piece.
I know, I know, I've been doing a LOT of sketches for this dang piece. But I think, and I know I've said it before however, this could be it. I mean you haven't even seen half the sketching I've been creating. I feel much more confident in this one's overall flow and feel. The pose needs some tweaking here and there, sure. I just know it's close. I really did like some of my old ones, and sacrificing Zelda to help the flow does feel like a loss. I just feel so confident that this could turn out to be the right one, but who knows.

After coloring the last lines a few times, playing with anatomy and separate compositions I just saw too much off the path I wanted. The mood wasn't there, the fear wasn't there. I was just concentrating on the lines and forgot what was important. So with a flash oh inspiration this sketch came out.
