Happy 30th Birthday to my most favourite video game series of all time: The Legend of Zelda! I decided to draw all Links together to celebrate the occasion.

It may seem some Links are missing, but there's some explanations for that. For example:
- Wind Waker Link is also Phantom Hourglass Link and Link's Awakening Link is the same Link in the OoX games and ALTTP. The rule doesn't apply for OoT/MM Link since they're pretty unique (and those two games mean a lot to me on a personal level).
- I decided to add in Ravio since to me he seems like a Link in his own right for the Dark World.
- Deku, Goron and Zora Link were going to be drawn in but in the end they represent the soul of other characters and not exclusively Link - even though he takes on their appearances when he wears the mask. Fierce Deity Link had to be in the artwork though.
- Wii U Link is added in because hey he's part of the family now and this year is pretty much his year :]


This artwork is for you guys. For all you Zelda fans out there, to the creator (Shigeru Miyamoto!) and the developers of The Legend of Zelda games these past 3 decades. :heart:

Will there ever be a game where all the Links from all timelines come together for a final fight against evil? It could be a great way to take the franchise to a whole new level.

It's 30 years of great storytelling, epic adventures and one of the greatest video game franchises ever to get to us - with that, I have a long tradition: Almost every console game I played got stuck somewhere near the end (do the remakes/re-releases on different platforms of those titles count as well?)... Breath of the Wild's gonna change that!

I think you missed Link from Skyward Sword manga. I don't know if this manga fully canon, but he was the very first Link after all.

My headcanon is that he's the spirit of the Fierce Deity's mask. So, technically, he IS in there.

The nostalgia is strong with this one. :) (Smile) It must have taken forever to draw all these Links!

Wow; that's a very great pic!
I think, my favourite here is Link of "Ocarina of Time". Yes; that's my favourite "Zelda" game.

This is great, I love Minish Cap Link especially, since he's my favourite from the handheld games. Right on 2nd is A link between world, and I really like what you did with him half appearing around the stone wall :D
Also love how you made the Wolf link transition, as well as Fierce Deity looking from the distance!
Aaaaah this is just great in general!

this is a great piece. all the links from each era coming in for a celebratory picture.
legend of Zelda is a game series that I have been a fan of, and I'm still a fan of it today.

I know there are some links missing (Triforce heroes specifically)
I just love how u did ALBW Link coming out of a wall.

this is just breathtaking to see and to see how far Miyamoto came with Legend of Zelda.

amazing work!!
