Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
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!

NEW ZELDA-ITEM PRINTS FROM STEPH CHOW
This weekend is the Pacific Media Expo in Los Angeles and the wonderfully talented Steph Chow will be there selling her previously posted Zelda-item prints, along with debuting two new ones: Happy Mask Shop and Piece of Heart.
Happy Mask Shop is my favorite, she really nailed the creepy undertone of the Happy Mask Salesman. Do you see the eye watching you? Look at the white space; the blue starburst is the pupil. Creepy!
If you’re attending the Expo this weekend, keep your eyes peeled for John Cheng and his Pokemon Shop Prints as well.
