Come on,  I used to lend you my ship all the time! by Retro-Death Come on,  I used to lend you my ship all the time! by Retro-Death
This is my Secret Santa part for :iconzelda-fan-club:
My recipient ~AlexLongclaw described that in many ways 'Skyward Sword' was his favourite Zelda. Now simply drawing something from that would have been boring and not very creative. I noticed his favourite friendship was Link and Linebeck (which actually is mine too) and then it hit me; Skipper is a Sailor, Line beck is too and Link squatted his ship all the time so I figured it was time to turn it around and let Link sail Linebeck around in this brand new open world!
Also Skipper's retreat and the Lanayru desert were the most beautiful and most original Zelda ideas since a long time and I just had to throw all these things together!

~AlexLongclaw I hope you like it dude!

Come on Bro! I used to lend you my ship all the time!

I never take into account the Zelda time line, to me 'Phantom Hourglass' was there first so the title stands.

I'm so happy with the way this turned out!

Did no one else notice the resemblance of the Desert Colossus?

Thx! ^^ I think the Lanayru Robots are the coolest race Zelda had since a long time. Skipper is just so adventurous even though his story is so sad. Also I just love Linebeck and somebody was bound to draw something like this so why not me? :dummy:

Yes they are! I love the robots xD I must agree, Skipper's story is sad but I find him utterly adorable. I love this artwork, may I add you to my watch list?

Nicely done, my good sir!
THIS is a truly awesome gift. I mean, Skyward Sword with Linebeck? It doesn't get any better than that! (This awesome part of the game also helps a lot)
Really, I am extremely thankful, I normally get sucky stuff when doing this kind of games. But you didn't disappoint.
Also, I'm sorry for the late response, but this month's been kind of weird for me... but whatever. Thanks again and merry christmas~! :V

Trust me there is so much more Zelda I want to draw. I have to get rid of my to-do list first (lotsa pkmn stuff) but after that I will focus a lot more on Zelda. I am part of Link's Blacklist 2 even. :D

This is so cool, it combines the styles of both games very nicely, and Lanayru Desert is one of my favorite places in SS :D

Thank you. :) I agree it is one of the most beautiful places in Zelda ever. Skipper's retreat is filled with so much sadness. I hated it that you couldn't swim in the sea though. The could've hid a chest or 2 underwater.

Yes, that was my one thing, because swimming is one of my favorite things to do in LoZ games :D

And they did it so nicely in Twilight Princess so it was sad that you couldn't in the Lanayru desert.
