Paper Craft Toon Link

Chelsea G.November 15th, 2012 by Chelsea G.

Throughout the Zelda community, there has been a fair amount of fan art depicting Link and other notable characters in some of the most creative ways. These creations range from paintings to plush figurines, and now one talented fan has brought Link to life in an outstanding style. Follow the jump to read more about this.


A Zelda fan known as Dragonflyz has recently posted images on her blog of a completed paper craft Toon Link. This piece of art measures 43 cm tall, and exhibits almost exact details from the character’s hair color to the shield and sword. Dragonflyz documents the construction of this project through blog posts with pictures and comments on her progress. She references a website called PaperCraft Museum as the source for her templates she used for this creation. In many of her blog posts, she indicates that this project was a bit of a challenge, but can be easily accomplished with focus and persistence. Personally, I found this to be an incredible piece of Zelda art. It shows how dedicated Zelda fans are through the attention to detail and the time-consuming task itself.

How do you feel about this fan art? Was it well done? Would you attempt a project like this? Let us know in the comments below!

    I love PaperCraft Museum. If you have good paper and a printer, definitely check it out, it has LOTS of amazing Zelda papercraft, including a life-sized Link!

    this is really good, I just wish, when I make papercrafts, that you couldn’t see the seams, cause then it would be a nice cheap alternative to buying figurines

    This is about 4 years old. It’s from the same guy who made the Life Size Link http://www.papercraftmuseum.com/life-sized-link-images/
    I have made both of them, toon link is 26 pages and Life Size Link is about 200 pages.
