I was looking into more 3D programs when I remembered MikuMikuDance (MMD). After wasting hours watching Tiger and Bunny dancing to Lady Gaga songs, I finally got the program and started looking for models to download. I came across Aegis from Persona and thought the design looked really cool so I used the MMD model as a pose reference (seen below) and tried to draw it in the style of the original artist. It was a lot of fun to try something new :D
[Photoset: fanart of Aigis and Junpei Iori from Persona 3. Junpei is looking over his shoulder curiously at Aigis, who’s wide-eyed and grinning while reading through a magazine; he quickly turns around and rushes to the now confused and annoyed android’s side once he realizes exactly what it is that has Aigis so captivated (it’s porn).]

I’m kind of in love with my own mutated image of adult-Ocarina!Zelda, who is this hardened warrior and knows practically everything about everything, and only needs Link because he’s the chosen sword-wielder. I’m even more in love with the idea of her afterwards, feeling like her princess dress is more a disguise than her Sheik persona, acting out the role that people expect of her like Batman pretending to be Bruce Wayne. Wearing gloves to cover scars on her arms and with five knives hidden on her underneath her dress at minimum, sitting next to male advisors who condescend to the little woman while absently thinking that she could kill them with her bare hands if she needed to.
Three color variations were posted, one close to the original scheme, a more earthy variation the artist referred to as the “I-make-my-own-leather backwoodsman variant,” and a dark one called the “I-can’t-decide-if-I’m-a-cowboy-or-a-ninja variant.” I liked them all, since they all make sense with the above explanation, so I decided to upload all three.

The two are wearing medieval-inspired clothing, Link with a ponytail and brown cloak and Zelda wearing a white headcovering and a long blue cloak over a white dress. The two are standing closely together with serious expressions, Zelda holding up one hand and speaking solemnly.]
