Step 6: Draw a shape similar to a diamond around the hand on the left side as a guide for Toon Link's shield. To draw the diamond, first draw two vertical parallel lines, then connect them with diagonal lines at the top and bottom. Draw a straight line coming from the left of the raised hand as a guide for the sword.
Step 7: Under the body, draw two short lines as guides for Toon Link's legs. The lines should bend a little at the tip to indicate where the feet will be.
Step 8: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic shape of Toon Link from Nintendo's Legend of Zelda Video Games. Now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Darken the edges of the initial football-like shapes inside the head to create the shapes of Toon Link's eyes. The lines at the top should be extra thick to represent the eyelashes. Add an oval inside each eye for the pupils. Shade in the ovals.
Step 10: Above each eye, draw a thick shape for Toon Link's eyebrows. The shapes should be thin and pointy on the sides and thick near the middle. Shade in the eyebrows too.
