I won’t lie, I’m terrible at perspective drawing. While I can visually picture almost exactly how this next Zelda short will play out, when I actually think about putting it onto paper (well, digital paper) I get a little scared. I’ve been mulling over how exactly to go about doing the perspective work on this when it popped into my head while cleaning up the girls’ megablox a few days ago that it might be a good idea to actually build a model for it. Hence this hypothetical Link versus Barney thing you’re seeing.
What you’re really looking at is a quick mock up I did of the room where Link fights the Aquamentus in the original Zelda game (that’s the first dragon like boss mind you). This is a sort of to scale model, the Link figure is perfect and the Barney was the closest thing the girls had to a dragon, not to mention the fact he’s about as large as I’d like him to be. I thought the Megablox would work perfect since the area this fight takes place in is surrounded by similar blocks. So within a few minutes I built my stage pretty close to how I imagine it.
