Demon Road: Zelda Design by sambees Demon Road: Zelda Design by sambees
Did these last year for our LoZ: Demon Road comic, I hope to get a full turnaround done when I don't have so many commissions on my to do list :la:

This one doesn't get a full turn around and layer break down like my link messenger uniform reff does because this design is not finished and we are unsure if we are keeping it as young zelda's "princess dress" outfit.

We where trying to go for something completely our own in this one for our Zelda world like we've been doing so far but trying to keep it recognizable as "princess" zelda. Then again, Skyward Sword threw everything recognizable about zelda except for her hair and eye colour and threw it out the window so... maybe we're just over thinking this.

Most of the inspiration for this outfit calls back to the A Link to the Past and Twilight Princess designs with the silhouette of Orical of Seasons/Ages Zelda without wanting to add a cape.

The design on the front of the dress is definitely still in production. The biggest thing we both hate about the zelda designs is the obnoxious fuschia and baby pink combo that somehow survived the OoT era to plague zelda for the rest of her lives so we did away with that. It's not coming back.

We'd love to get your thoughts and crit on the design or the direction we've taken it as another zelda fan.

You can read our comic here: [link]

Or follow it on DA at a much slower pace:
For serious though, I'm going to try to catch the DA one up soon

Edit: This is not the outfit that she fights in, the sword is for decoration here. This is her "princess" outfit, her fighting outfit will be much more practical, and also blue.

This is gorgeous! I was wondering if I could cosplay this? I would credit you for the design of course. I'd have a link to your page on every photo and say you designed it to people at cons. Thanks!

I like it. It makes me think that the kingdom she rules is a lot more aggressive though, that sword and ornamental armor look like they could do some work before she changed into her "work" clothes.
