link to the past

Finished this in time for Zelda Day! I wanted this to be a gif, but I couldn’t keep it within Tumblr’s 3mb size limit, and compression got really shitty. So a video file is the only way I can salvage 2 weeks of work.

EDIT: Lots of people (angrily) asking why I left out TP. I like the game, but I only had time to make one Link per console (I wanted to make it by BOTW launch and before I travel for work again.) WW and SS embody their respective consoles better than TP, I felt, so that’s what I went for. 

I’d like to add MM and TP in the future! But I also want to keep the file size low… 

a really common mistake I see in the LoZ fandom is who is and isnt reborn each zelda game, and while u can do whatever in ur fan art or fan fiction or whatever, i just thought I’d spread the zelda facts B)

-Link is the only one who holds the triforce who is actually reborn. His spirit is specifically a servant to the goddess Hylia, no one else can take that place so he has to be reborn.

-Ganon(dorf) has been the same being. He never dies to be reborn, he’s only ever sealed away for a long time. in some games, its lightly suggested this is driving him insane. He eventually turns into a beast in all timelines (only a lil in the adult line tho) which is probably a result of power hungry corruption and, if u wanna speculate, insanity caused by such a long life span

-Zelda is a name passed on to every first born female of the hyrule family, along with her powers. She’s always an entirely different person but one who shares the same destiny as many of her ancestors.

 The Chaos continues.

Welcome to the Links and the Link’s au, where everything’s still made up and the canon still doesn’t matter.

More Loz from me~!

(please do not edit/repost my work to othersites without permission! Seriously just ask it takes like 2 seconds;;))

Its dangerous to go alone…

This is one of the prints that were available at Anime North that I forgot to upload. Had a lot of fun incorporating all of the Links. Can you recognize them all?

Short animated trailer I made to go with the Zelda x Ghibli posters I did a while ago. Will post some of the BG paintings I did for this at some point-

I animated this to a section of an amazing piano piece by Kyle Landry
