Zelda and Metroid are my favourite Nintendo protagonists.

I dislike that the artist made Shiek less androgynous. Don't disagree! I've seen pictures comparing in-suit Samus to how she looked in Metroid, and she's given distinctly rounder hips, a narrower waist and thinner arms to clue in the viewer that she's female. Compare against Phasma, who looks like a regular stormtrooper except for her voice.

Yeah it's not a Nintendo artist but Nintendo's doing it to its own characters, spoiling the twist. Shiek doesn't look quite that feminine in Smash.

I don't mind it for cinematic purposes, especially right before the "reveal" (and I've not seen Sheik used in the creator's other videos so I can't comment on how the model holds up outside of that scene). The OoT manga did something similar by having the spell essentially "wear off" when Sheik fell unconscious, gaining more obviously feminine features (which made Link flustered when carrying her to safety ;P) before changing back completely.

No matter how much OoT Zelda is enhanced though, I still say she's more attractive as Sheik and her princess form is fugly. *shot*

The artist's other works are pretty nice too. There are some wonky bits here and there (especially during crying scenes since the tears don't track well with the faces ^^; ), but he's obviously put effort into trying to breathe more emotion and life into the characters, as well as tie together the different titles with multiple references. "Father's Last Words" - a re-enactment of the Great Deku Tree's death - got to me as well. Not to mention the music alone is gorgeous. <3

...Now if only he would learn to use spellcheck. >.>;

Yeah I think it's OK given it's a fanwork and we all know the twist anyway, but believe it or not I did not know Samus was female until about 4 years ago. So conceivably, there are people who do not know or would connect that Zero Suit Samus is not the same person. Maybe they think she's Nova Terra.

Blonde girls in spandex are not exactly as rare as women in power armour.
