Twili Link by Mudkipblader Twili Link by Mudkipblader
Concept sketch doodle thingy which got a bit... more complex than I originally intended. >3>

This is basically a "what if Link somehow turned into a Twili" picture. A few months ago, my head was swarming with ideas for Zelda stories... and the particular one that inspired this is a continuation to Twilight Princess. Somehow Link doesn't leave the Twilight Realm unsheathed, but something settled inside of him... and tl;dwt(*) ... needs to find a cure in the Twilight Realm before it kills him...

I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have loved to discover more of the Twilight Realm than just the Twilight Palace. In this particular story you wouldn't have a choice but do venture out and complete the familiar Zelda formula in the Twilight Realm. :'D The Light Realm of Hyrule would be the second half... after reclaiming the Master Sword... or something.

I'm sure there are anatomical mistakes and such, but you don't need to mention them. >3>
In Twi's Twili Design, I mainly used Midna as a reference: a combination of shadow markings and actual fabric.
The hood forms his usual, signature hat, whereas the rest is somewhat based on his Ordon outfit. The hood also there to cover his pointy ears. As a stranger in an even stranger world, it's best if he keeps a low profile.
Since he's the bearer of the Triforce of Courage, I put Farore's mark a few times in this design.

Every important mark in the Twilight Realm is shiny, and I don't think it should be a surprise that the Triforce on his left hand is also very shiny (even when not resonating). The gloves have as additional function to hide the golden glow for the same reason menitoned above.

My Shadow Kargarok turned out a bit overweight. 8D

Thank you very much! Glad you like it. I had a lot of fun drawing his patterns. : >
This is pretty awesome!
I really like the idea. I wonder if it could work as a story.
If done right, and in the spirit of Twilight Princess and the Legend of Zelda in general, I think it could work very well. I've been thinking about it every now and then, but most I have are loose ideas that could fit in somehow.
It can be an interesting concept for a story actually. When does this take place in the timeline?
