Character ReDesign: Tingle by Bradshavius Character ReDesign: Tingle by Bradshavius
Lol, 100th deviation! :3

Tingle. I have chosen to redesign one of the most hated characters in the entire Zelda series. However, I tried to make him seem more like how he was in Majora's Mask and Oracle of Ages. In those games he was still pretty weird, but he wasn't nearly as obnoxiously annoying as he was in, well, just about every other game he's appeared in. He was much more bareable in MM and OoA.

Hmm... Who (or what) shall I redesign next, I wonder...

Bullcrap! Tingle is the best Zelda character of them all! He is just so weird... and funny. Haha.

I wasn't speaking for myself, but for Zelda fans in general. Most people can't stand him. I'm not one of those people, though. Tingle is the epitome of awesome!

Aw well, some people just don't have taste! They probably prefer a boring character, flawless, with good looks, and absolutely no personality, like Link honestly (Link is pretty much perfect). Tingle is one of the most interesting Zelda characters mainly because he is weird and ugly, and he got a unique personality of his own.

I couldn't agree more. It's the imperfections, not the perfections, that make a character unique, interesting, and/or dynamic.

Yeah, Tingle is weird, but the only time I found him annoying was in The Wind Waker. Apparently he is wildly popular in Japan though.
Anyways, great pic!

WIN! A Zelda game with an art style like this would rock JUST as much as this one; [link]

What's up with all the Tingle hate anyway? Link is at least 10 times more feminine. xD

Heehee, thank you! :D

I must agree, Link can be pretty feminine (especially the more recent realistic versions of him like in OoT and TP). Tingle never struck me as being "feminine", though, so much as just being weird or eccentric.

Yeah, he never bugged me, either, though I can see why he would bug others. I actually found him to be more amusing than annoying.
