An extremely interesting and by the way, quite contrastingly fresh change in the fan art of the fandom. I applaud you for this, it is simply the best thing I have ever had the pleasure of viewing for Zelda art. No one else is likely to do something similar, making this piece, all the more unique in its own right.
Fuck yeah, Old Link. I'd love to play an Old Link game. And it ends when he retires, only for evil to ravage the land again. He bequeaths his sword to a brave, young successor with these words: "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this..."
Wow. The black/white effect looks really good. It retains the classical elements Link must have to be Link, such as the hat and tunic. This is turn grants him the humility he's so known for while the older age gives him a definite regalness. His eyes are old and experienced, but still warming to look at.
This looks very nice! I like how he shares a bit of a resemblance to the King of Hyrule ... which makes you wonder about all the Links in the different games! Wonderful job! I love his expression and how hardened and wise he looks!
