Paper Mario Zelda [Ocarina of Time] by Decapitated-Kittens Paper Mario Zelda [Ocarina of Time] by Decapitated-Kittens
[UPDATED!] Since Zelda was my very first Paper'd character, I have improved a lot since I first made her. Sooo, I decided to go back and improve her.
If you prefer, or want to see the original, here it is: [link]

My take on a Paper Mario Zelda.
I've seen several 'Paper Mario Zelda's" done, but I decided to do her Ocarina of Time version because... well, my dream game right now would be a remake of Ocarina of Time redone Paper Mario style. I suck at the Zelda games, but I love Ocarina of Time's story and I loveee me some Paper Mario RPG goodness.
There was probably more I could do to make her more like Oot Zelda, but my overall main goal was to make it look like it came out of the Paper Mario series, so I tried not to stylize so much and keep close to the Paper Mario look.
Hope I accomplished that goal alright! >.<

Next up, Link, and then kid Zelda[OoT]

I originally drew out a design, but to make sure she came out looking like she came out of the Paper Mario series, I made a base using Peach to get the anatomy down, then made the rest basically from scratch from there.

I'm pretty satisfied with it entirely, but I wish I could figure out how to improve that belt. OH WELL.

But yeah.
Zelda and Paper Mario: Nintendo.
Vectoring and redesign done by: Me

PS:
I would love everything and everyone if someone made this a game. Seriously. Serious.

I use Adobe Illustrator. It's great for getting things to look super precise and accurate.

Could you make a sprite sheet out of this? For the TTYD and SPM versions, the sprites are unassembled into tiny pieces, so each character is rendered in a DIY fashion. This allows others to assemble the sprites to create custom poses.
Could you make a sprite sheet in that fashion?
(I'm not forcing you or anything.)

I actually had interested in doing this at some point to make a movable sprite, but unfortunately, my computer got wiped a few months ago... I had most of my stuff backed up, but unfortunately, this particular character was lost. : ( Of course, it is still on DA, but, the original file with all the layers was lost.
So, if I was to make a sprite sheet, I would have to start over.
However, that doesn't mean I won't /ever/ make a sprite sheet. I still want to make a movable and posable version... but it won't be any time really soon. XP

Try uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator! Or download Photoshop.

Looking back at the original after getting a lot of practice done, I thought it deserved to be improved and have some details added. : P

I am getting Link and Zelda tattoos in 2 months. I'm leaning towards the pixelated versions but if you do a toon Link and Zelda I seriously might have them tattoo'd on me. Would that be okay with you?

I love it.

Well I'm glad they credited me at least! That's a relief.

My mind went straight to Paper Ganon + Ganondorf. I wish Nintendo would entertain the thought of a Paper LoZ too.

Paper Mario was THE game for me when I was a little kid.

What's funny about this is that I was playing a little bit of Sticker Star yesterday and I was thinking about playing the first one on my Wii's virtual console.

Nice work with the design and everything.

I'm not overly familiar with the Zelda games except that they're characters from Super Smash Bros series. Anyway, was looking at Paper Mario stuff, and saw this - way too cute! Great re-work from the linked original too.

Sorry I don't live up to your expectations, but true story bro :D

Ultimately, it's whatever I got exposed to, friends having big influence. Sega Megadrive back in the 1990s, then Nintendo in 2000s, Super Smash Bros, Kart 64, Bomberman, Goldeneye etc. Zelda, Samus, Kirby etc I just know from the Smash Bros games.

At least I saw Sonic the first time round though, and not one of those current-gen kids on deviantART who do those terrible Sonic re-colours in MS Paint :p

Alright I can give it a shot whenever I have the chance. : )
You want them together or individual pieces?
I'm pretty new to the style so I've yet to draw characters interecting with each other or anything.
But I can try to if interacting is what you want.

Just standing together would be just fine ^^ Hopefully this would give you a chance to practice some more!
