Thanks Julie!!

Beautiful Work, Marvelous Details but...
Link does look like he’s 38 years old in this pic.

Not a fan of realistic renditions of anime/cartoon characters, but this one deserves the spotlight.
Your brushwork shows a lot of experience.

Face looks a little too realistic, and kinda oddly stylized at that. That being said, and I hate to be THAT guy: Immediately ignore the guy who says it's more realistic for the sword to be on his back. There is extensive documentation and dissection as to why back-mounted sheaths do not work the way they are displayed in media.
TL;DR: You can't draw it from a length greater than about the length of your arm, in contrast to drawing from the hip. This length is insufficient to clear any reasonable size sword from the sheath, including the sword drawn here. BTW, it's a pretty sweet sword.

Very nice, though the sword design confuses me somewhat; it's obviously not the Master Sword, but the guard...it's bizarrely wide, though I suppose it could easily be the reason he carries it on his side instead of back...
