The Legend of Zelda - How to win a Princess's kiss by KejaBlank The Legend of Zelda - How to win a Princess's kiss by KejaBlank
EDIT: NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON thrillingcanvas.com as canvas!

With the age of 16 I was a big fan of "The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of time". I drew dozens of sketches from Zelda an Link together, wrote a few fanfictions (which I destroy afterwards - I didn't know, I would regret it later - btw, this was the only time I wrote fanfictions) and collected it in two big folders. Now and then I have a look at the folders ... My dad often has observed my drawing process and I can remember, that he said from time to time: "Why is it that they need soooo long ears?" ... and I rolled with my eyes and said: "Dad, those two are elves, they need to have that peaked ears!"

This Artwork is my crowning achievement of that Zelda-phase and a big dedication to my sweet friend :iconaugengold:, who also is a really huge fan of the games - better to say - Link, right ;-)? A wounded Link, kissed by a saved Princess -Zelda.
I hope, you love it as much as my friend and I do.

Dear KejaBlank   , 
My name is Anna and I’m the founder of YourArtPath.com - an Art Blog for artists! 
In it, we have a lot of tutorials, reviews, interviews and inspirations. 
Currently, I’m working on a blog post “Zelda Fan Art” where I’m planning to collect art from a variety of artists :) 
And I really love your take on such a popular show! 
I was wondering if you would allow me to include your work in it as well :) 
Can’t wait to hear back from you, 
- Anna. 
P.S. We have done 2 of them in the past, "Harry Potter Fan Art" yourartpath.com/harry-potter-f… and "Stranger Things Fan Art" yourartpath.com/stranger-thing… in case you would like to see what the post will look like :)

I don't understand why people steal art. And for what purpose? They clearly don't respect an artist's hard work, time, dedication, training and skill.. Anyway, I barely noticed the watermark. This is stunning!

Yah, mine, too. But I have not the time for vry singl stupid guy, who post my artwork. I have stressed myslf too much in the past with such problems. Whn it is a real problem, thn I ask my watchers for help, because you are the best shitstorm, such a person can get. If it boiles your blood, then write them and tell them, that it is not ok...Mostly that works more than when I write something. It tlls those persons, that ther are more people offended.

what a lovely tribute to the legend of zelda! I played the small black-and-white game  as a small child and never imagined it would turn into such a popular monster. And who can resist loving Link and his sacrifices for his princess? ;)

Searching Bing for "Zelda Link Kiss Art" still shows the un-watermarked image as the first result. And the source is still your Deviantart.

Ah, I deleted it on a few platforms because of that. But those people, who have sold it, probably have downloadd it long time before. And you know, One time in intrnet, forver in th internet..... that is a problem.

I know, but the source is YOUR Deviantart. If you still have the un-watermarked version as a scrap or something then it is somehow linking to that instead of this one.
I messaged a screen capture to your facebook art page.

it is a problem, that when you once uploadd an artwork to DA in another resolution or without watermark, it is still in the cache, but I can't do anything to delete it. It is not in my scraps, neither I can see it nor I can delete it. it is just something, the searching machines find and display.

Ja, ich weiß. Aber um des Fandom Willens und meinwr Freundin.....und der vielen schmachtenden Frauen.....ich hoffe ja immer noch, dass Nintendo irgendwann bereit ist, die Lizenz für einen Film herzugeben.Bisher ist das ja noch ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit.
Ach ja, dieses artwok habe ich schon vor 2jahren gezeichnet.habe nur nichmal ein edit dazugeschrieben, da dieses Bild immer wieder geklaut wird. Und langsam find ichs echt nicht mehr lustig.

You should probably know that a Facebook game, Hero Wars, is using this picture in its advertising, presumably without your consent. Luckily, they left your watermark in the crop, which was how I managed to find and inform you. prntscr.com/doa7i4

Why is it not possible? You can always use it as background in private.....That is no problem. Problem is when people uses the picture and sell it or do things with it, they not allowed to like manipulation, retouching and claim it their own.... but for a private desktop wallpaper.....no problem at all. ;-)

KejaBlank Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2016  Professional General Artist
Yes, thats right. But usually you already have saved the picture on your computer, haven't you? I think, the resolution is still high enogh to use it as wallpaper. For many people steal artworks and use it for not permitted purposes, I cannot offer a higher resolution in the future. You can thank those ignorant people who use pictures without asking. It is a pity that all the others have the trouble because of that people.....*sigh*.
