edit: uploaded larger version as some people wanted it :)

My entry for the Hyrule Historia contest. I struggled quite a bit with the colors for this one with all the different things in the picture, but I managed to finish somehow. The contest is run by :iconwoodland-mel: if anyone wants to participate

Thanks for looking

Five hundred plus years later, it's infested with monsters.

If only we could've seen the kids crouched in the shadows in the actual game. It would've been the single most mind-blowingly atmospheric moment in any 64 game (even with the fairly basic polygons of the time)

Agreed. I never even cared for this scene and I remember it perfectly. Seeing this picture tells me that it's a big moment. That's how much of an impact it has--you don't care for it, but you still see how important it is.

Well done kGoggles.

I think Mido's feeling guilty...

Mido's one of my favorite characters in the Zelda franchise. Don't ask why if you don't want a long explanation.

Tamayako Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the manga, when Link returns to the forest. When Mido doesn't recognize Link, he starts to talk about how he actually didn't want Link to leave and he actually didn't hate him. He even cries at that point!

awww maybe he felt like it was his fault that Link left :o

It's hinted in the game and the manga that he felt that way.
After you beat the Forest Te,mplt. go back to where Mido is, talk to him, and he'll say,

"Hey, you... If you see him somewhere, please let him know. And also... I'm sorry for being mean to him. Tell him that too..."

And in the manga, well, I already said that part, so, yeah. Mido is one of my favs. I don't understand why he has so much hate. He's struggling with jealousy, guilt and anger. Odds are someone in the world is like that.

yeah, I could tell in the game that he felt bad. I liked to talk to everybody even though they repeat themselves after a while.
I just love the Kokiri people and the forest the best :love: 
Thanks for your comment :)

Yeah, the Kokiri people make me sad when Link's an adult. 'Cause it's clear they miss him, even Mido misses him. But i the MANGA, ooh, my God, I wanted to bawl by eyes out when I read Mido's part.

Here's what he said, in case if you haven't read the manga.

"Why won't he come back?! Even though I told him to come back... Even though I've been waiting all this time...


When I read that and saw his crying face, I just went, "MIDO, DUN CRY, I'M SORRY I HATED YOUUUUUU! :nuu:"
