Link's Battle by TheWizpir Link's Battle by TheWizpir
Early early morning sketch from earlier today. Can't seem to get Zelda games off my mind lately, and I don't really see any reason to. Took the scene from OoT and threw in a few elements from the final battle in SS and there ya go. Just a roughy, trying to get a firmer grasp on colors and get more comfortable doing landscapes like these. Had a lot of fun and plan on doing more!

Hope ya dig it! And as usual feel free to comment with thoughts/opinions/nonsense. What was/is your favorite Zelda game? Has it changed since newer ones have come out? And what do you think Miyamoto has in store for us with the upcoming Wii U title?

We never find out much about the Dark Link you fight in the Water Temple, do we? Ah well, I find that all the unanswered questions surrounding him and the withered tree makes it all the more interesting. The picture is fantastic, and it still keeps a certain air of mystery. Nice work!

Thanks very much! And I agree, the mystery makes it a much more interesting concept, let's you come up with your own awesome narratives =D

Wow I forgot how much the two battles are alike. I have thought a lot about which Zelda game is my favorite. I'm not sure. It really surprises me that the longer it has been out, the Wind Waker seems to be better and better. I hope the Wii U Zelda will explore some new ideas. The ideas they have mentioned so far from Nintendo Direct seem like the right direction

I agree, of all the years I've played these games, Wind Waker seems to stick in my head the hardest. Could be my own love of the sea, and the fact that the soundtrack is AMAZING. Gives me high hopes for the Wii U title, they've definitely earned my trust to let it play out however they see fit. Personally I've been sketching out a few concepts for a futuristic Zelda setting complete with your following artificial-intelligence radar interface (F.A.I.R.I.) named Nav-E =P lol

Thanks =D

Originally only planned to have him standing against the backdrop, but the tree really wanted to be there

OoOOOooOOOooh! I like it! :la:

Haha, at some point after playing SS I wondered if those two battlegrounds had any kind of relation.... like after SS Link's battle, did that tree grow and die there just in time for OoT Link to show up?
:iconteheplz: Anyway.

This is just gorgeous. Your clouds are absolutely stunning! :D Such brilliant lighting and delicious colors and a rich, rich blue sky. :love:

Hm, I think my favorite might just be TP, though OoT will always have a special place in my heart. But hands down, I think WW has the best soundtrack. :D

ALSO I JUST NOTICED THE WAAAT? :nuu: My gosh he blends in well with the tree roots there. :faint: Hahahaa thank you for that little visual heart attack. :laughing:

As far as the next Zelda on WiiU.... meh, I'll just take it as it comes. :) So far Zelda's had a pretty hard time disappointing me. I'm sure the next one will be just as good, in whatever way its creators see fit to give it. :aww:

Hehe well thank you, I had the same feeling in SS, they did similar time-shift-cameo stuff from OoT in WW (which I'm playing a rom of now =D and definitely the best music).

But yea of all the games I've never really been disappointed at all so I'm looking forward to what's next and the opportunity to make some more fan art!

Glad you liked it, thanks for sharing =)
