Legend of Zelda AU

Where the Hero of Time is born to the Gerudo Tribe

and they live in peace training with their sisters and aunts and etc until one day a mysterious enemy appears… The Marauder of Time!

He has rolled all across the other kingdoms, intimidating them into alliances. In the wake of the mysterious death of the King of Hyrule no one has been able to stop him from raiding ancient temples and destroying the guardians that lived there.

Meanwhile the leader of the Gerudo, sensing the trouble headed their way, sends the young Hero on a quest of their own while she prepares the tribe for a fight

the little Hero returns stronger than ever with the Triforce of Power glowing on their hand and defeats the Marauder of Time. Only then do they discover that the true enemy the whole time was…

Zelda, Princess of Hyrule. She overthrew her father and blamed the Gerudo in order to start a border war and enlarge her kingdom.

and that’s the AU I’ve fallen headlong into recently.


Lake Hylia, latest painting in the Zelda Open World Series. 

I couldn’t wait to finish this one because it’s one of my favourite locations in Hyrule to explore. Went for a painterly feel for this one and experimented with the cool colours. Always wanted to paint this location and my interpretation of it, it was such a delight!
