Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Painting

This has been hanging on my wall for over a year now, it’s a painting by Green Castle Graphics of the final scene in Link’s Awakening. I’ve seen a couple of posts on Reddit that reminded me of it in particular a pearler bead rendition of a scene from Crono Trigger, which has to be my favourite game ever, so I figured I’d finally share this.

I saw this while walking past Green Castle Graphic’s stall at Sloan’s Market in Glasgow, and I had to buy it then and there. Here is the image in Green Castle’s Facebook Gallery before I bought it.

I’m sorely tempted to commission another image by Green Castle I just don’t know what… I have a couple of Ideas though.

FWIW here is the Pearler Bead Chronotrigger image that inspired me to post this:

After two years and 47,096 beads, my girlfriend and I finish this tribute to my favorite game of all time. (OC)

LEGO: Legend of Zelda

So I was looking for the original source for the above image by Wes Talbott, and I stumbled onto something wonderful. Apparently Lego have a site where people can suggest and vote on new Lego sets and collaborations. If a project gets 10,000 votes it will be submitted to Lego for review. On this page I found that there is a submission for a Lego Zelda! And it’s reached the the required amount of support to be considered by Lego!

The guy who is working on the second Lego Zelda is also working on renders for a Lego Super Mario Brothers but it’s still early days on that…

Skyward Heart

Skyward Heart

This pendant which is in the shape of a heart container from The Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword is quite cute. It’s by The Pixelsmithy, and will apparently retail for $22 but is only available to pre-order at the moment.

Interestingly they debuted on Reddit, I think they know their target market…

Legend of Zelda Art Nouveau

These Art Nouveau images are by Artist Melissa Somerville (Deviant Art Page), and feture characters from the Legend of Zelda series. Her Deviant Art page is full of cool illustrations based on among other things the Zelda Universe and the Okami Universe.

I can’t seem to find a fill size image of the Link and Zelda Images above just a Triptych.

Customized Nintendo Themed Roomba Vacs

This could be the reason I use to get a Roomba, these custom Nintendo Roomba covers were created for the SUPER iam8bit Art Exhibit. Featuring Koopa shells, a Goomba from the super mario series of games and an Octorock from the Legend of Zelda.

I must admit that I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t a blue shell with wings, can you imaging how scary that would be if it started following you?

The above image was created PeekaBooPeeper as part of an art project to create a super hero in a digital storytelling class:

We had to make up a super hero in my digital storytelling class and because we had free range, I decided it would be fun to combine three of my favorite gaming characters into one…had to make up a silly story about the freak accident that brought “Big Daddy Linkio” (Big Daddy+Mario+Link) into existence, describe his traits, powers, and so on…emphasis was story telling but gave me a great excuse to indulge in a completely ridiculous looking character…

The Legend of Zelda-Skyrule

I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim lately, and really been enjoying it, I’ve got a review in the works that I’ll probably never get round to writing. I’ve also started playing a link to the past, and I’m looking forward to getting Zelda: Skyward Sword. So this image by MetalHanzo is quite timely.

MetalHanzo’s gallery over at Deviant Art has some other pretty cool artwork ranging from his own characters to Final Fantasy to MegaMan.
