Zelda


2009 has been the year of Zelda for me. I had never paid any attention to that pointy eared elf boy till this year, and now I've beaten like three of the games. This image depicts Link and (nearly) all of his accessories (no need to provide corrections or additions, I know I've missed a couple of things) from my latest conquest: Minish Cap. Overall a very fun game, though the final boss battle is absurdly difficult.

Link's a strong boy.

Oh I love this!

My favorite is Zelda 3 on super nintendo, second favorite is Majora's Mask, and third is Zelda 64. The best graphics and expressions are on the latest one of course for the Wii though.

Thanks Rosemary! Also hi!
Thallian, I've played Phantom Hourglass, Link to the Past, and Minish Cap. In that order.

Excellent... Though no drawing of Link is complete without some sort of Ocarina. It's not really a criticism of your post, I just wanted to say Ocarina. Also, I wish I could figure out where I put my DS so I could play some of these great games. EXCELLENT DRAWING, SIR!

The Ocarina appears to be under the mirror shield. Oh and Zelda: Link's Awakening is the best of all time. Great drawing!

Adrian Ropp said...

I meant ANOTHER ocarina.

Eric said...

In Adrian's defense, there are two separate Ocarinas in Zelda 64.

Great job!

This is hilarious... I'd never imagined what Link would look like running around with everything he's collected... and now I don't have to. Excellent, sir.

@ S.T. Lewis: Nintendo has done the same thing for the Official Art of the first game:

I really like your drawing. I'm a Zelda fan myself (I've played all of them except for Four Swords and Twilight Princess). If you're ever interested in getting to know other Zelda games and fans, feel free to join my zelda site: zeldauniverse.net (I'm known as BigGoronSword over there). If you liked The Minish Cap, might I recommend playing Link's Awakening, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons? The only "problem" is that they are all Gameboy games, and unless you still have a Gameboy Advance laying about, you won't be able to play them.

adam this is great. we should make a game like this...not like zelda, we already tried that. I love the idea of being responsible for all the crap you collect. A pack rat saga.

Thanks everybody!
@marco Thanks for the head's up! I'm taking some time off till Spirit Tracks comes along.

The last boss was easy, just getting to him before the last bell tolls was HARD!
