Sheik by super-fergus Sheik by super-fergus
Shiek from 'The Legend of Zelda'

No. Shiek is not a dude.
She's never been.
It's just a trap.

My goodness, I never knew this one would be THAT popular.
All I can say is thank you for your kind words and comments, its what really keeps me going with these things. I'm glad ya'll like it!

I think that it was a man in OoT but then Nintendo started to make Zelda only dress like Sheik. In OoT she was changing her whole aparance like race and gender :v

i have a great counter argument on why sheik originally in ocarina of time is a boy if you want to hear it

-Heavy breathing intensifies- THIS. IS. AWESOME!!!
You know what would be awesome? If you could make this animated, into a show, maybe... it would be the most awesome videogame show ever, and I'm not exaggerating on that, mate. You would need a good story, though. Not like the Manga, which throws the events of the game into a blender (like having Gerudos attack Lon-Lon Ranch...), not to mention a couple other blasphemous additions... you would have to expand the story somehow, though. Maybe have Link get everything back at the very end of Ocarina of Time (after they take care of Ganondorf once and for all...), like his slingshot, boomerang, upgrades, heart containers, bottles, weapons, equipment, other items... plus you could show him defeating the bosses again (since they were already there at the beginning of the game), meeting everybody again, and finally packing light for the search of Navi (A.K.A. the beginning of Majora's Mask), and after all that, you could make a Majora's Mask series, and then a miniseries right after that... like Link's continued search for Navi, and possibly finally finding her...
It's a lot, but you could make it happen if you really tried. This is my request. PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

This is the most badass rendition of Sheik I have ever seen. She really looks a warrior and leader here.

This is beautiful. It's so life like yet video game graphics. This would be a perfect cut scene if they ever did a Zelda game where you could play Sheik's role after beating the game. Or a complete game just for her. Imagine all the badassity that would ensue.

Love it! The colors, the detail, the character … all of it is good.  Just one piece of advice: Shiek's eyes are red … being a hardcore fan I'm picky.  Besides that, this piece is great!
wingsister Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
Lovely! I just adored Shiek! It was so freaking awesome when he turned out to be Zelda.

Sheik is a girl and always was a girl.
wingsister Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014
Yeah I know Sheik is a girl, I just meant that up until the point where it was revealed that Sheik was Zelda, I'd thought of Sheik as a male. :)
Legendwarcraft33 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You can see the determination in her eyes, like she's just thinking 'See ya in a minute....LINK!' like she did when she just...PHWOOM! in OoT. The detail on this is amazing!!!

ryttu3k Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey, just letting you know some jackass posted this without giving you credit. stephanohandler123.deviantart.… Apparently they rarely listen to art theft reports unless it's from the original artist, so I thought I'd let you know.

wait wait wait

all this time I thought this was a 3D model.
this is amazing how real this looks.

Sheik is a girl. Look at her SSBB model. Much more feminine. This is a great-tastic picture of her! *becomes Sheik*

This is A-FRICKEN-MAZING! I saw this on some other site and thought it was art for a new game coming out and was seriously excited. But after trying desperately to find out what game it was from, I came upon this. Outstanding.

Sheik is not a dude...THANK YOU. I was about to cry from the number of people who kept saying, "No, Sheik is a guy. Zelda is too delicate and whiny and whatnot to actually not fight herself." Anyways, I really love the urgency in her eyes, which are pretty much the only thing that we see on her face. The background is wonderful too, and the realism of this. It's just so awesome!

THIS LOOKS AMAZING!! I just saw it on tumblr and had to comment on here!

Wow. I mean seriously just wow. I like to think of Shiek and Zelda as different people (for various reasons) so Shiek will be forever male to me but

There are no words to tell you just how much I love this...
LoveuKaito Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
Shiek was actually suppossed to be a guy, if you read the Zelda manga books, you will understand. But i still love it!

THAT....................does not look like a drawing. I seriously thought for a second, "Oh my goodness, Sheik is real! Someone actually managed to photograph her!" Then I was like, "Oh, it's just super-fergus being awesome with his artistic talent."

Whoa, I love the detail you put into her. I don't know if it's just me, but the art work reminds me of the game Borderlands, especially her eyes and face mask along with the background. Any ways, keep up the good work.

That's AMAZING! I love the realistic feel of it! Great job! :)
