This handmade clay bust of Link is a welcome new addition to the spring of impressive Zelda content that’s been created by talented fans over the years. Chris Vierra, also known as Sculpture_Geek, produces sculpting tutorials and videos of himself crafting characters using traditional sculpting methods. Watching Vierra sculpt Link is fascinating because of the skill, detail, and precision necessary to bring the bust to fruition– it’s not every day that one gets to see the creative process this close-up.
It’s crazy to think about how much work went into creating this sculpture; Vierra is clearly very talented and is dedicated to his craft. He has also posted videos of himself sculpting Fox from StarFox, King Hippo from Punch Out!!, and Earthworm Jim, among others.
