Zelda 25th Anniversary Tribute by ~J2Dstar
The suggester says: "Being that this year is Zelda's 25th anniversary, I think this wonderful piece really does deserve a DD. What amazes me the most is that every single thing has detail. For example the figures far away show the wrinkles in their clothing. Everything is put together very well and the author even shows every character from the games. "

This was really a labor of love, The Legend of Zelda series has been a major source of inspiration for me over the years. I wanted to honor all the incredible artists who contributed to this series by illustrating each character as to resemble their original concept art.

This is epic *^* I love the compilation of the characters from different games--they all look great in your coloring style :D I just recently went through my notifications, and I can see that this got a feature back in 2011, but still, congratulations on the Daily Deviation! xD

Honestly, the only thing I think could possibly be missing is the Skull Kid himself  (rather than just the moon). I'd love to see how you would fit such an intricately designed mask into this - ginormous - intricate art piece. Besides that one little thing that I feel guilty about sayingHomerhide-plz , I love everything about it. I adore how you included every generation of Link, in wolf and human form in Twilight Princess, and the Four Swords Links. The villains part is amazing, and my favorite part is probably Pig Ganon, Dark Link, or Vaati.  I still don't know how you managed to create this amazing work, and I'm definitely going to "Watch" you to see the other amazing things you create. Excellent work! Hatsune Miku-13 (Wink and Heart)
