This fucking comic. Nothing about it makes any fucking sense. Why is the middle panel cut up? What is the background and why is it different colors? Why is Link drawn like a woman? Where are the characters' noses and pupils? Why does Link have irises in the first panel but not the third? Since when does Link have a cape? Since when is a hood mistaken for a cape? Since when is a skirt mistaken for a tunic of a different color? Why is Link giving the V sign? What does he mean by "cut the feed" when they're in a comic? Why did the artist draw the word "flip" when the line showing the skirt being flipped is enough of a visual indicator? What is under Link's sleeves and the hem of his tunic? What is that thing near his neck, a tiny shoulder pad or a mirror? Why does the clock on Linkle turn into a medallion in the second panel? Why are the shadows constantly changing, where is the light supposed to be coming from? Why doesn't Linkle's right arm match up in the second panel? Why is this same arm broken in the third panel? What is Link doing with his left arm in the third panel? Where is Link's teeth and tongue?
>>
The middle panels are broken up to make you consider each piece separately, and eye her from top to bottom.

This. It does exactly what it's meant to OP.
>>
>>77556702
>What is under Link's sleeves and the hem of his tunic
Chainmail.
>>
The middle panel is cut up to show that they're showing different parts of her. The background is just a wall, and it's normal in comics to have backgrounds change color so it's not stale. It's been a joke that Link is kind of girly-looking for a while now, which is why they made this strip to make fun of it. Clothing and make-up differences is basically so we can distinguish the two characters, who would otherwise look identical. The V and the "Cut the feed" refers to cutting the feed with cameras, and Link is making a cutting motion with his fingers. Some people like onamontopeia (unsure if I spelled that right.) The shadows are because of inconsistency.

>Nothing about it makes any fucking sense

I think you're being over-dramatic about a comic that realistically isn't good or bad enough to warrant this kind of reaction.
Nerfnow is just kind of.. boring? uninteresting?

>Why is Link drawn like a woman?
Link is pretty androgynous to begin with. When people have very simplified styles it can be difficult to illustrate link being very masculine.

>Where are the characters' noses and pupils?
They're the little discreet triangles. This is a common practice/technique where cute little noses are made by drawing the shadow or the contour the nose creates as opposed to the nose itself to make it seem little and cute.

>Since when does Link have a cape?
The cape isn't a cape- it's a scarf, which the Hyrule warrior link wears.

>What is under Link's sleeves and the hem of his tunic?
It's a Riveted or "Chainmail" shirt. Warriors typically wore these over a cotton or wool shirt called a "Gambeson" because they provided excellent coverage from piercing and slashing weapons without being terrible heavy, expensive or stuffy like plate mail.
You can see quite clearly in this picture Link's wearing three layers: Tunic, Chainmail and than his Gambeson underneath that.

>What is that thing near his neck, a tiny shoulder pad or a mirror?
That's a pauldron- purely for aesthetic/stylistic reasons and realistically not serving any functional purpose.

>Why does the clock on Linkle turn into a medallion in the second panel?
It's supposed to be a compass, but I see why you would think it would be a clock or watch- it doesn't read very well in the first panel due to what I can imagine is an oversight or error on the cartoonist part of giving the compass "clock hands".
>>
>>77556702
>Why is the middle panel cut up?
The separation of panels indicate timing and focus- the "beat" before the punchline as the reader looks at three separate parts of Linkle, with emphasis on the androgyny of those features.

They removed Link's undershirt and pants to make his tunic and chainmail look like a frilled dress

how lewd, and probably uncomfortable

this.

Watterson said it and Mccloud said it. panel structure determines flow and "beat". Alternative panel structures like this can help set up jokes differently than the typical four panel set up. This isn't a big change, but it's essential to learn in comics

Okay, so, in order.
Middle panel is cut up to represent top-to-bottom reading order and make you consider each body part separately.

Background is plain color - that is pretty common for comic strips. It's in different colors to represent different emotions that Link is feeling when examining Linkle - desaturated brown when he's annoyed, more saturated intense color - yellow - when he stutters and can't think of anything, and the most intense - red - when he's flustered.

Link doesn't have irises in third panel to make his eyes appear bigger to make his desperate facial expression more exaggerated, which is also why he doesn't have a nose - to make his eyes look bigger.

V sign is the scissor sign, when directing it means "CUT!". So, body language reinforces what Link is saying.

The joke is that lnk is starring in a mock-PSA he directed so people will stop bitching about similarity between him and Linkle, and this PSA didn't turn out as planned. That's the story that is implied here.

Drawing the word "flip" and motion lines draw readers attention to what would otherwise be unremarkable detail. Directing readers eyes/attention is extremely important in comics - in fact, that's also why the middle panel is split.

It's scale mail. Google it.

It's a shoulder pad to give him more "armored" look.

Shadows aren't changing, light source is from the ceiling/sky in every panel - look at Link's arms in first panel, then center middle panel, then look at Linkle's coat and hair in third panel - everything comes from the top.

Arm is behind the baggy coat, it's a thing we call "perspective".

It isn't broken, it bulks up because of the muscles. Look at your own arm, dammit, arms aren't flesh noodles/tubes.

Link is flailing his arms because he's flustered.

Artist doesn't draw teeth because of a thing called "stylization". Look it up sometimes.
Please learn about comics before nitpicking bullshit.

... What? I'm a comic artist. Association of colors with emotions is basic color theory.

But you're right, this is a stupid idea and it's not like someone has written an entire comic book franchise based on color coding emotions, right? What a preposterous idea.

In none of the games would I say Link is androgynous.

>>77568953
He has to be androgynous, otherwise I wouldn't be attracted to him, as I am surely not a faggot and only faggots are attracted to non adrogynous men.

Please, tell me. If you had to guess at the first glance, without knowing anything about Link - would you say that character is female or male? Without thinking about it.
