Omg finally it's finshed!
I did this picture for the Zelda fanart competition by Nintendo and Tokyopop, but soon it turned out to be kind of a tribute to my favourite game series.
I wanted to depict important and some reoccuring characters from each of the Zelda games. The only two games missing are the original Legend of Zelda and Adventure of Link which are kind of covered by Link-Zelda-Ganon.

Here is the list of characters in the design I chose from each game:

Ocarina of Time: Zelda, Ganondorf, Impa, Saria, Navi
Majora's Mask: Happy Mask Salesman, Majora's Mask, Malon (design of Cremia), Kafei
Twilight Princess: Link, Epona, Midna
Oracle of Seasons/Ages: Din, Nayru, the Postman
The Minish Cap: Minish, ChuChu
The Wind Waker: Aryll, Tingle, Chicken
Phantom Hourglass: Linebeck
Spirit Tracks: Phantom
Link's Awakening: Marin (no one ever remembers her! XD)
A Link to the Past: Farore, Agahnim

Guess I totally overestimated the workload...

"Boomerangs, bombs, dungeons, magic swords,
puzzles, and green tunics. Welcome to the Legend of Zelda."

My tribute to, what for me personally,
is the best video game series ever made.
Now I don't say something like that easily,
because I mean, I do have 300+ games...
I guess, since I grew up with Ocarina of Time,
the series always had a special place in my heart...
and unlike other great video game series, it never had
a bad game in its whole series of games (fourteen games) ~

That's pretty amazing, and each one of them are really good too!
I should know, since I own every The Legend of Zelda game so far;

The Legend of Zelda (NES)
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (GB)
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (GBC)
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (GBC)
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (GBA)
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (GC)
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GC)
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (GC)
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (DS)

See? told ya so! :heart: :iconilickitplz:

Remember, this is stricktly my own opinion, I do not speak for everyone else.
Just because I find the LoZ series flawless, doesn't mean everyone else does.
This is my opinion, and it's up to you as a gamer and fan/ fan of gaming to shape your own ~

UPDATE:
To those interested in buying a print of this artwork you can do so now over at this link -> www.designbyhumans.com/shop/ko…
It also has some of my other artworks(that aren't available as prints here) up as prints. Thanks!

end update.

This artwork of mine was made to look like the original cover of the Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess. This was a project for my class and the objective was to traditionally paint an original or existing artwork, in this case i chose the artwork of Legend of Zelda. As you can see musicgames.m.u.pic.centerblog.… , if you just READ this description FIRST before judging the artwork, i changed a few things from the original.

I was happy with my painting and just decided to share it with everyone else here on DA. So please read the description first before saying unnecessary things. Thank you very much.

*

I finally uploaded it! HAHA

Phew! It was very hard to scan this thing! It was too big for the scanner and so i had to scan parts of it and later put them together in photoshop(which was HARD).

Anyway i edited some parts of it since the original had some minor problems.

OH AND THIS IS GREATLY REFERENCED FROM THIS->upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
with some minor changes.

The LoZ character anthology continues! This is the second installment of four (Mountain and Dungeon themes are after this). There was just way too many characters to cram into one piece. Now I had to cram more characters into this compared to the Forest Theme (I realized I forgot to draw in some characters in the last one, so now I'm cramming them on the others -.-). Oh yeah, for some reason,, the file size of this one was 4 times larger than the Forest Theme >_<

You can actually read this one in two ways: Are they enjoying the Indigo-go concert? Or are they all laughing at Tingle? :XD:

Oooh, the vertigo...

:XD:

This is the 3rd installment (out of 4) of the Legend of Zelda character anthology that I'm working on. It seems like I keep adding more characters with each succeeding piece =.= There was too many in this one. I struggled with this for a while (I think I went through a couple sketches before deciding on this one). Hope you guys like it.

*grin* You can really tell which characters I'm not fond of in each of these pieces :evillaugh:

Dungeon Theme is next. Ever wonder why all the old characters haven't showed up yet? :plotting:

(Painter Classic and Photoshop 7)

Note: This is from the ENDING of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. If ya don't like spoilers and haven't finished the game, you shouldn't even be looking at it. ;p

And finished! Gannon and Link dukin' it out in Beast form...with Midna enjoying the ride as usual. Silly Gannon. When will you learn that turning into a giant pig just doesn't help?

Drawing this was an interesting process. I had a LOT of references...including official game artwork and screenshots for Link and Midna, other fanart for coloration detail and such, pictures of real wolves for Link's position, and lots of short little videos I took with my digital camera of the TV while I was fighting this scene for both Gannon himself and the background.
I was also listening to what little of the OST I could find online over and over again while I worked on it. twas very helpful for inspiration. :)

This is roughly 65%ish the original size...feel free to download the full!

(Sketch: [link] , Ink: [link] )

*PS* Just realized I forgot to put Link's little chain cuff on him....will fix later. Hehe

Umm… Happy Halloween? ^_^’

Well, the pic does contain spiders (skulltulas), witches (Syrup & Maple) and a freaky moon… so I think it fits *huge grin*


The fourth installment! Finally!

Sorry it took longer than the others, but I managed to finish it (doing bits and pieces here and there over the past two weeks). But anyhoo…


I recall `bluespeed9 commenting about the lack of old school Legend of Zelda characters a little while back. This *waves hand at artwork* is why. I was saving the oh so few old school characters for this piece. Well… few compared to the newer games :XD:


*grin* Agahnim is so bad-ass :XD:


lol, don’t you just love the scene with a bunch of (maybe drunk) old characters singing through the night?


Also, can anyone guess who’s going to win the chess match? Agahnim or Ganon?
Chess Pieces (the dark grey pieces are Ganon’s):
Triforce & Castle = King
Crystal = Queen
Master Sword = Bishop
Dark World Pyramid = Rook
Stalfos & Pol’s Voice = pawns



Also there are 12 skulltulas in there, and in true Zelda fashion (Ocarina style), can you spot them? ^_^

Did this piece of fan art of Link from the Legend of Zelda. I'm thinking about making this into a print, what are your guy's thoughts on that?
