Waker of Winds by medli20 Waker of Winds by medli20
HEY GUESS WHAT MY FAVORITE ZELDA GAME IS?? IT CERTAINLY ISN'T THE ONE I WAS SO OBSESSED WITH WHEN I WAS 10 YEARS OLD THAT I NAMED MY ENTIRE ONLINE PERSONA BASED OFF A CHARACTER IN THAT GAME, NO SIREE

AND GUESS WHAT GAME IS HAVING ITS 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY SOON, DECEMBER 13TH TO BE EXACT???

Aww yiss. I figured it has been a while since I did a big, elaborate static pixel scene like this, so why not do a thingy like this for my favorite game, it only seems natural.

ANYWAY, I'm pretty pleased with the way Ganondorf's face turned out. idk, shading old man wrinkles is a lot more fun than one would think. Not too sure about the King of Red Lions there, though; he just seems a bit out-of-place. Still, it wouldn't be a proper ZWW tribute without him.

Uuuuhhh what else. Tried keeping my colors limited this time (though I'm sure there are at least three extra colors in there that I could have done without, but I don't do color restrictions very often anyway). Total color count is 29 if that counts for anything.

Also here, have some WIPs

So that's about it, I guess. HAPPY ALMOST BIRTHDAY, WIND WAKER

(inb4 "WHY ISN'T X CHARACTER IN THIS???" I didn't have enough room and I didn't want this to look cluttered)

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was a misplaced deviation, since it appeared to be a digital painting. Excellent work.

yea i gues s your right, he is basicly my favorite too, and if you ever played skyward sword, its pretty cool cause the finale boss looks like ganondorf a bit and his name is demise, linking it to ganon >w<

I'm hoping that Nintendo will release Wind Waker on the Wii U virtual console for it's 10th anniversary. It's my fav next to Link to the Past.

Isn't it an awesome game? I feel like it has aged so well over the years, too; the aesthetics are still gorgeous despite it being a 10-year-old game. :)

Yes! My roomate played it for the first time earlier this year, and it still looks so great!
I really admire Nintendo for having the guts to change the art style in their LoZ games! XD I don't see many game series do that...
Makes me curious to how the next Zelda for Wii U will like. More cartoony or maybe a more realistic take (now that they have the graphic engines to do it)?
