Starting off my 22nd birthday in the best possible way, with a birthday card from @thisiskatierose with every one of my favorite things on it.
Aaaaand here’s an update! I spoke with the lovely Lauren Duda, another JibJabber and awesome person.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
I would play the SHIT out of this game.
