Because Rule 64 fanart of male main characters are generally drawn by men, who also typically only draw women in the ways they're attracted to them by. I mean, the Linkle art is nice, but pretty much every one of them is designed as eye candy first and not for practical use. It's also kind of super bullshit because all of Link's outfits are clothes first even if most are Fantasy Armor in the end, and you probably wouldn't have to change anything about the outfits' design if you went with Linkle instead.

tl;dr: it's well drawn art, but probably drawn by someone super thirsty (of which there's nothing wrong with that, but it's also p. common)

Honestly I wouldn't have assumed the artist's gender just from looking at those designs. Sure they're obviously designed to be cute first and practical second, but heck it's a reimagined one-off game character design. It's not like they're over-the-top sexualized. Hell, some of actual BotW Link's outfits seem pretty thirty themselves (which is great!).

Ah ok now it's starting to make sense and explains my confusion because I am at least 85% certain that artist is a lady

I mean if I know who the artist is it is likely due to having lots of yuri stuff on the pixivs

I still remain confused because it seems like we are discussing this art as though it were in the one fantasy art thread and while I wish the ancient armor were designed more like, well, armor, I am mostly amused and delighted by the art being displayed here

(I mean, shoot, the ancient armor is some of the only clothing in BOTW that actually looks like reasonably functional defensive wear. Everything else is just fancy magic tunics)

Don't get me wrong, cheesecake is great, but that's most of what gets put out with rule 64 stuff of either gender (because most of it is porn, heh), and even the SFW stuff is still focused on sex appeal over function. I just want something more beyond cheesecake.

I like how BotW Link looks just as determined yet uncertain as her male counterpart.

I am also not up on that but I don't think Zelda was ever a tree. Or the opposite of a tree.

Wasn't that from the cancelled Legend of Zelda / Star Fox crossover?

Sidenote: I think I finally put a finger on what bugs me about re-imagined movie posters. Most assume you're familiar with the film, and therefore fail as movie posters.

I've never seen Steven Universe, but I feel like that piece glamorizes anorexia. I know it's just an unintentional effect of making a naturalistic rendering a cartoon character, but there it is.
