The Legend of Zelda by maiyue The Legend of Zelda by maiyue
Omg finally it's finshed!
I did this picture for the Zelda fanart competition by Nintendo and Tokyopop, but soon it turned out to be kind of a tribute to my favourite game series.
I wanted to depict important and some reoccuring characters from each of the Zelda games. The only two games missing are the original Legend of Zelda and Adventure of Link which are kind of covered by Link-Zelda-Ganon.

Here is the list of characters in the design I chose from each game:

Ocarina of Time: Zelda, Ganondorf, Impa, Saria, Navi
Majora's Mask: Happy Mask Salesman, Majora's Mask, Malon (design of Cremia), Kafei
Twilight Princess: Link, Epona, Midna
Oracle of Seasons/Ages: Din, Nayru, the Postman
The Minish Cap: Minish, ChuChu
The Wind Waker: Aryll, Tingle, Chicken
Phantom Hourglass: Linebeck
Spirit Tracks: Phantom
Link's Awakening: Marin (no one ever remembers her! XD)
A Link to the Past: Farore, Agahnim

Guess I totally overestimated the workload...

~20 hours (not doing this again so soon XO), watercolours

That's really good! May I suggest something? open the image in "Office Photo Editor" and just tweak the brightness and contrast a little, and maybe the color tint. It'll make it come together beautifully! I learned that in Art class xD

My goodness, this is STUNNING! Its amazingness is further amplified by the fact that this was done in watercolor! 20 hours? Seems pretty quick to me, considering the amount of characters and details! Very well done! :)
