Forest Temple - Zelda Open World by Mei-Xing Forest Temple - Zelda Open World by Mei-Xing
I'm really excited for the new Zelda coming out this year, so I painted what I imagine the Forest Temple level might look like in the game :)

Also doing a series of these of what I think the world might look like. Look forward to more ;)

The game would have been SO much better if there were actual temples like this. This makes me long for a Breath of the Wild at it's full potential - great job!!
High five!

Hi there, I believe your art was stolen: www.facebook.com/7227928945405…

They also stole my Zelda fanart so I belive you gave them also no permission.

Honestly, I can't help but to feel that this mention of "the new Zelda coming out next year" is the kind of thing that ultimately jynxed that, considering the upload date of this.

. . .But silly observations aside, I just absolutely adore this. This forest dungeon concept just conveys everything that I'm hoping to see in such a dungeon. A great old forest flooded with light, and a beautiful ancient building that is completely overgrown, visibly abandoned, that at first glance alone already conveys a wonderful sense of mystery from the location. So, kudos for you for capturing all of this so perfectly! :)

That is one helluva digi-painting, m'dear! You use proportion perfectly, giving the temple a truly humbling size, with Link looking at it like "awwww I better cancel my appointments for the rest of the day!" It perfectly captures the elements of my favourite Forest Temple, from Ocarina of Time, in that it looks like a place that was once indeed used to worship, but fell into disrepair, and now the forest is keen on taking it back for itself.

Wonderful work here! I've been peeking through your other Zelda Open World pieces, and each are equally splendid. Keep it up!

And now, I must fave.

oh wow thankyou! This painting definitely has a special place amongst the series because it was the first to help my art get out there. Plus Forest Temple is one of my favourite levels as well. So glad you like it! :)

Wow! All your Zelda Open World pieces are so cool! I hope the game is as good as this! You give a really nice sense of scale to your pieces, and it makes me want big impressive buildings like this in the game too. :)

I just wish I could play it when it comes out, what with all the weird financial things in my life I doubt we'll be able to shell out money for a WiiU and a new game :ohnoes: I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously through Youtube or friends at first :shakefist:

Wow! What a grand look. It's awesome to see a Zelda scene painted in such scale. Is this digital or traditional? I can see the elegant strokes in the leaves, rocks and architecture. A job well done. =)

thankyou so much! It was so much fun to paint! It's digital, painted in Photoshop. I'm hoping the next ones I do will improve as the series progresses along with them. Thankyou! <3
