I chose Toon Link because he is my favorite character in Super Smash Brothers and because, since I like a very cartoonish simple style, I thought he would be easier to do than Twilight Princess Link or Breath of the Wild Link. Also, I am a huge Zelda nerd.
The biggest challenge was shading him in. I learned pretty much all I know now about layers and eyedrop from coloring him and trying (but failing) not to overlap different colored outlines.
Although this project took me a really long time and was super frustrating for me initially, I think it is solely responsible for getting me familiar enough with Illustrator to create the rest of the graphics showcased on my website. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
