THE LEGEND OF ZELDA SERIES

"The God of Power dyed the mountains red with fire and created land. The God of Wisdom created science and wizardry and brought order to nature. And the God of Courage, through justice and vigor, created life – the animals that crawl the land and the bids that soar in the sky.”

It would probably have more colors than green, though! The re-imagined screenshot comes from Jonatan Iversen-Ejve, who illustrated this for Swedish magazine LEVEL (via gamover mx981). I’m not too enamored with the art style in Iversen-Ejve’s version — it seems a bit too Triple Towns-ish to me — but I’d welcome a remake for Link’s Awakening.

If Nintendo was able to transform the second-best Zelda into the wonderful, modern masterpiece that was A Link Between Worlds, just think what the company could do with the series best entry.

I’m trying to work more on full pieces and not just character drawings. This was such a learning experience and probably took me way too long to do. But maybe the next one will be quicker!

I entered this into a Game Art Contest - I’m also trying to work on my competitive side, so I would like to hunt down more contests for 2014!
