The Legend of Zelda - the Triforce by imDRUNKonTEA The Legend of Zelda - the Triforce by imDRUNKonTEA
My tribute to one of the greatest game franchises of all time. If only I had a Wii U so I could play Skyward Sword... :(

I actually started this last summer, but put it off and decided to finish it now. I redrew and redid virtually every part of this several times, but I'm happy with how it (finally) turned out.

I used the Twilight Princess designs as a basis, as they're my favorite of the series.

Zelda (c) Nintendo

Edit: Now available in crazy high resolution!

Edit 2: Fixed her arrow! Now Zelda won't lose her fingers when she lets go of the string :)

Edit 3: Another fix! Made her other hair loopy be on the correct side of the shoulder armor.

This is actually the first thing I've commented on. This is just incredible. You can just see all the details and how much work was put into this. When I think of these three Zelda characters, this is what I imagine.

Wow, what an honor! Thank you so much. I really adored Nintendo's designs, especially after Twilight Princess, so I'm glad you noticed all the detail :)

No problem and thank you. This was my first Zelda game and I just loved it. Seeing your art just brought back the love

:) if you haven't already, definitely check out the new Zelda trailer (from a while back, actually). A pseudo-open-world style, which looks amazing so far!

I saw it, it was really cool. It would be nice to have a real Zelda movie

Yeah definitely. They'd have to deal with Link either being a mute, or making his character believably badass though lol

That would be cool. It would be weird but cool to make him talk, it's like a mystery now to how he sounds like. And i hope they would make him badass, since that's what he is

Yeah, as long as he's badass, I'm fine with slight reinterpretations (all the Links are different people anyhow, so some are bound to be a bit different than others) :)

This cracks me up.  Ganondorf is just standing back there, probably wondering "What are they aiming at?  I'm over here."

it's really great! it's just Zelda's hand bothers me for some reason, like it looks too small to me.
i know you made a lot of edits already, but i had to say it. still going into favourites!

Nice catch! I do think something's funky with her hand - I think I may have drawn it too flat at that angle.

Appreciate the comment :)

Awesome, Loving it in every way! I Agree with you on twilight princess, the graphics in that game i think were my absolute favorite of all of them.

Yeah I absolutely adore TP's aesthetic and general atmosphere. Not to mention Ganondorf looks like a total boss (pun intended) - it's probably his coolest look yet!

Thanks :)

Good news, Skyward Sword's only on the Wii! You just need a Wii Motion Plus remote/attachment~
This is absolutely gorgeous! Every detail is perfect, and the limited color scheme sets such a powerful mood!
