Official-Art-based Link





A lot of the time Link's hair gets changed to blonde or brown or whatever. After looking at the official art, I felt that maybe Nintendo intended on Link's hair being "orange" but maybe mixed up the palette.
So I altered Link's.... pixels? to better match this art:

Crucify me if you must.
I shall go back to hiding now.

Edit: Also, I forgot to mention, this isn't meant to be some majestic work. It's more or less to stir up ideas.

Why was the hair originally pink?

That's a good question. I can't imagine why.

I like to imagine the developers said "oops, his hair is pink, we misplaced some stuff," "Eh, it's good enough," and they just kinda threw it in like that.

Best explanation I could find:

Because colours would bleed in to each other on old CRT TVs, if he had a brown shield, and peach skin, and brown or yellow hair his skin would blend in to his hair and then in to his shield. A lot of SNES games tried to have only very different colours next to eachother

Also, Bunny Link and normal Link have different palettes, no?

Yes, they do. It is now thus proven that Link's pink hair is Not the result of the shared palettes with the pink bunny. The reson for his pink hair is unknown (to be more in contrast with surounding colours is one possible reason).

If this was the case, would Link having orange hair blend in too much with his skin tone? or even the fairy shield?

On new age monitors, that are around nowadays I think you can make his hair in any colour and it would be ok.
