I scheduled this post instead of immediately uploading it, because it’s my way of remembering Satoru Iwata along with everyone else at Nintendo. Flags at Nintendo Of America and Nintendo Of Europe are at half mast today, they aren’t putting posts on any social networking sites out today, so I won’t either. This will be posted at 6 AM on the 14th. (If I used the scheduling thingy right)
You know, things like this really make you realize that you don’t know when death is at your door. Or when someone you know or love will die. So tell them! Tell them you love them, tell them they meant a lot to you! I remember being in an online school, and my favorite teacher had given a class that day. Got done with school, went to go play, and went to bed, got up the next morning to find out that same teacher had died of cancer during the night. You don’t know. So don’t put it off.
So, we have Link, who will hopefully be in my latest drawing if I don’t fail miserably. This is just a sketch, I will do the three or four stages before complete thing, but I have never drawn Link before (technically I have, but it wasn’t supposed to look like Link, it was supposed to look like goo that I joked was Link) so this is how I went about it.
Now we start with his body. The shoulder is one of the most important parts, because the shoulders add depth. So, because he is standing side ways, we make the shoulder closer to us slightly higher than the shoulder further away.
Okay I fixed the hand and beefed up the sword. If you click on the picture you can see a little bit of the line near the top that I erased. That was a little TOO beefed up. It looked like Shulk’s sword.
Update: My memoriam or whatever you call it to Satoru Iwata made it to the Nintendo World Store in New York thanks to one of the MyNintendoNews writers.
