I like that you made it look like she's wearing a tie. Very "business warrior-woman".

Normally I'm against redesigns but she looks like her OoT form that it looks real nice. Also I kind of suspected being a bodygaurd and such she'd have a FEW scars with assassination attempts/kidnap attempts to thwart etc. Also I think she's probably in her late 20s early 30s as she's the youngest looking version of Impa in any of the games she's in -shudders as I remember the 'Shrek" form from the Oracle games-

Idk about Impas age... Honestly I haven't played the gameboy games so I wouldn't know hold old she is in Oracle of ages/seasons, but even though she's big doesn't mean she's all that old. I think there are both arguments for and against Impa being of a certain age. One of the things being how long she's been protecting Zelda, which is ever since she was a baby. Ocarina of Time wasn't all that detailed, you gotta admit that. All the adult characters look the same after 7 years so Impa could be older than she looks. I can't say I have an idea as to what age she is, but I think she's older than you'd expect.

That said, can I ask why you normally dislike designs? Have you stumbled upon a lot of bad redesigns or interpretations of your favourite characters in styles that don't suit them? Or do you simply think a character is fixed and shouldn't be messed with? For my part, I like redesigns because I like seeing people's different interpretations of how characters would look if more realistic or in a different time and the like.

Actually the Oracle games are part of another timeline than the Ocarina of Time game so its not the same Impa in those games. I just didnt like her design in those games.

As for redesigns yeah I stumbled on some bad ones and I've also seen alot of "hey lemme redesign this character..... AS A PONY HUR HUR" ugh..... I dont think a character's design should be 'fixed'. There can be an 'official' design to base redesigns off of sure but nothing in this world is ever 'fixed'

Ah like that. Well I can only speak on my own behalf, but I wouldn't ever try to fix a character by redesigning. When I do redesign a character it's more like... "Hey this would look cool" or "This way it looks more modern" or something. Like... following a particular theme and changing a character according to that just for experimenting. Fixing? No. Never. The characters I redesign are often some of my favourite characters of all time and they're perfect as they are.

I see. I think the favoritism is partially why I don't like redesigns for the most part.... Or maybe I'm just being abit too overprotective haha

You mean other characters get overlooked?
