Legend of Zelda: Master Sword

Anyone that's a fan of The Legend of Zelda would recognize this image. I tried to recreate the artwork from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past showing the Master Sword in its stone pedestal deep within the Lost Woods.

For years I tried to recreate this scene off and on in 3D, pencil sketch and other mediums without much success (or rather, to my liking). I think I've finally done it.

You can see more detail and info for the stone pedestal and sword here: [link]

I know more recent versions of the Master Sword have a blue hilt. In the original art the handle was red.

Thank you! It's almost difficult to believe that I made this almost nine years ago. I'm glad that it's still getting attention.

I see text on the sword, what does it say?
LizzyGibbs3D's avatar
The text on the sword in Hylian script is "Sword of Evil's Bane"

Awsome Work dude

Hey has anyone wondered why in a link to the past the Master sword is White?

I never understood that, but I think I have an Answer to it.

okay a link to the past is the First game in the Decline Timeline (Were link failed and his Bloodline ended.) this caused the Master sword to turn White.

In A Link to the Past, the color of the sword might be because of the color pallet used by 16 bit games. The Fighter Sword (given to Link by his uncle) is white with a blue handle. The Master Sword that you find in the Lost Woods has a blue blade with a red handle.

Anyway thanks for posting! It's nice to see that people still like this image.

Link has such a LOOOONG sword.....if you'll pardon the pun.

From what I've seen, his sword grows and shrinks depending on the situation.

XD Yes, and it gets somewhat...firmer...?

This is an incredible piece of work. It almost casts the illusion that you are actually there, seeing through Link's eyes. Amazing! :w00t:

Thank you!

When I did this, I mostly wanted to do a more 'realistic' version of the book art from A Link to the Past. What surprises me is that I did this five years ago and it's still getting some attention.

That... Is amazing. Seriously, just... Wow... It's awesome how you took the time to add the writing on the pedestal and everything. Zelda Fangirling commence!

It's the little details that can make all the difference. Thanks for viewing!
