Alright, alright - I know this image doesn't make much literal sense on the surface... It's just that - when I got to the point where Link got the harp in Skyward Sword, I immediately thought of Sheik. So this image really is just about the resonance that certain images in Skyward Sword have - and their connection to past games (which, I am aware, are chronologically later in the Legend of Zelda timeline).
This was a lot of fun - it's literally been years since I've drawn Sheik. You can check - they're back there, buried in my portfolio!
This is dedicated to everyone who has submitted artwork to my challenge, 25 Years of Legend of Zelda! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it. The challenge is still going on - and there are many more prizes to award, for those who are determined!
