First thing's first. I was LPing Megaman Zero, so I'm like "Hey, I'll need a Zero related avatar." So I took an image out one of the Battle Network games and resized it, then I started LPing Minish Cap at the same time. I needed an avatar that showcased both!
I took this picture of Zero and made my own Legend of Zelda spin on it.
Edit: Here's another picture in the same style (albeit old than the above picture). Concept art for a random made up Legend of Zelda boss: Overgrown Sentenial, Borrl.
