-ORIGINAL HERO- by tavington -ORIGINAL HERO- by tavington
This was a for a "Clay sculpture trade" with ~lazyperson202

She wanted an original Link from the very first Legend of Zelda game, and she showed me the cute artwork from it.

I had fun making this little guy :3

Sculpey III and Studio by Sculpey, with bright gold FIMO powder brushed on the Triforce and varnished.

It might just be the angle that the light's hitting it, but the triforce looks a bit like a Quality Street toffee. Looks good enough to eat!

All the same, this sculpture is a masterpiece. Really puts one in the mood to whip out the first Zelda and re live the awesomeness of seeing Link strike that pose!
