That is really awesome! :la: I like Link's serious look and the markings. I'm glad he's not scared in middle of the cuccos. =) Still, he'd better be careful or things might go bad, really bad. ^^; To be honest, when I first saw this on thumbnail, I did think it was blood at there but when I came to here.... Yeah, Link's that awesome! =D Also, those feathers behind his ear is a really nice touch in there.
Also, alternative title could be something like: Link, the leader of Cuccos. ;)

This looks wondeful! I love the expression in his eyes! The dreaded cuccos are great way to do something with the Year of the Rooster.. I like the feathers in Link's hair as well. Good job! :D

Wow this such a breathtaking portrait if Link.
I just love everything in here, especially the red paint in his face and the feathers in his hair.
Makes him look like an ancient warrior. Very well done :D

But Link loves painting Cuckoo blood on his face. ... No wonder Cuckoos hate him.

Cuccos are the best. It was such a great idea to include them in this drawing. The paint on his face is great. Nice work.
