  • Begin your drawing with a circle or oval for Link’s head, followed by a rough outline of his torso as shown in Picture 1.
  • Next, draw one curved line from the side of his body for his left hand and two similar lines for his legs. Also, follow Picture 2 to draw the magical shield in your Link’s right hand.
