Question: Do you need to draw in a different Zelda style? Or can it be any other style like: Saria drawn in pokemon style.

Question: Is Deity Link a minor character? I mean Link isnt (duh), but that form?? :)

I would say he doesn't really count, Fierce Deity is probably as appreciated as Midna or Navi. :i

Ooh, I like it! I've got just the character in mind! Question: Can it be a pair of characters who function as a duo? This isn't my choice, but as an example: The two clowns from Twilight Princess, who operate the cannon service.

Can we collaborate with someone on this? I find my skills at backgrounds to be lacking right now, but I'm very practiced in characters. If I may, I'll post a comment asking for anyone willing to work with me.

Ooh, this seems like fun! I'm not exactly sure what counts as "minor" though ^^; Is it just not Link, Zelda, or the major villains?

:iconpickletoez:
pickletoez Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Student General Artist
I think anyone who has appeared multiple times in the series, or is one of the key characters like Midna, Fi, etc, are 'major' characters and those who have smaller roles like Link's Loftbird, the kikwis, any of Tetra's pirates, the sages are all okay.

Is it alright to do a character like, for example, Impa from Skyward Sword in the style of Ocarina of Time? Since Impa is in OoT but is a different version. The character I want to do is the same situation.

Sure, as long as they're recognizable. Which character are you planning on?

I was thinking of the girl that gives Link a shovel in Oracle of Seasons. Since she's a sprite, she could be drawn in, say, Skyward Sword style, right?
