Nice!! I love your style
That's incredible. Seriously, I love this.
I pretty much love anything Zelda. Love me some polygons, too.
Zelda anything is a win.
Is there a LOVE button! This is awesomesauce!
Your style is impressive!
Somebody posted this on Tumblr last night and I thought "wow, this looks like someone's style I've seen on Dribbble." Sure enough, here it is.
All that is to say, this just became my desktop background.
@Jordan Koschei --what resolution is your desktop at? I'll send you a full-res version if you'd like.
@Andrew Kuhar - That would be awesome! My primary is 1440x900, but I've also been playing around in PS trying to turn this into a workable iPhone wallpaper. No way to do so without ruining the composition, though :-(
I've attached two additional files to the shot for anyone who'd like to have them as a wallpaper: one for desktops, and one scaled for iPhones.
@Jordan Koschei Chances are you tried your hand at something similar for the iPhone, but see if what I've done at that scale fits any nicer. If not, I might try going back in and bringing Link more into focus for that one.
Many thanks for the kind words, everyone!
@Andrew Kuhar - These are awesome, thank you! The iPhone wallpaper is much better than what I'd tried... I put Link in the center, which failed miserably.
@Jordan Koschei - You're welcome--enjoy!
Wow, all those splinters of color are amazing! Nice work.
Hey @Timothy J. Reynolds , thanks!
Really love your style! What's your approach when making something like this?

Hey @Steven Reynolds, thank you!
I approach these drawings a lot like I would a physical painting (if I had more control with actual paint). There's no "un-doing" in the process -- it's all one continuous act of layering the composition with posture and then color/light, using very broad strokes and sharp angles to eventually define shapes. These pieces take a lot of focus and a pretty clear vision going in, but I usually finish these in one sitting when possible.
