I'm not implying that Link is cursed. If you've ever played the game A Link to the Past, Link is given his flute by a boy who sought the golden power. The boy ended up as a cursed creature in the dark world and when Link found him his mind was growing hazy and he asked Link to play the flute for him one last time. Then the boy turned into a misshapen tree and Link had to travel to the light world in Kakariko village to tell the boy's father that he was no longer around. It's a very sad part of the game.
This piece is based off the game, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It's one of my favorite Zelda games. Link is sitting on the stump playing the song of the cursed boy. In the original game the instrument was called a flute even though it was obviously an ocarina. But I wanted to draw Link playing a flute anyway.
The monster come from different popular video games. There are the Four Sword Links, Yoshis, a Goomba, and a Piranha Plant from Mario. Rambling Mushrooms, Mobile Sprouts, Mr. Saturns, and a Territorial Oak from Earthbound. A Rabite and a Mushboom from Secret of Mana. Etecoons from Super Metroid. Kirby from... erm... Kirby. Pikachu from Pokemon and Snake in a box from Metal Gear, albeit the box is from Smash Bros. Brawl.
And the plant life is based off the plants from the Secret of Mana Mana Tree official game art.
I take commissions, If you are interested, feel free to contact me.
But thanks so much. It was really fun to draw this. and I loved all the little details.
This is beautiful!
The game, Link to the Past, was the first Zelda game I ever played. This brings back such lovely memories of the time I would spend sitting at the spot in the forest where the boy's image would be playing the flute with all the animals around him. I would sit there for hours when I couldn't figure out what to do next. I was so sad when he died. I missed going to the forest and listening to that song.
I think it was the only part of the game that truly was sad, at least for me.
Lovely picture, just lovely.
I'm glad you think that.
It just brings back good memories, and to me, that warm fuzzy feeling that I get from it is better than something awe-inspiring.
It's like eating milk and cookies while using crayons. It's a childish feeling, but it's so good at the same time.
If that makes sense.
Haha sorry, im helpless with this stuff /;
i never finished that game TxT if i can ever find the game and system maybe i'll try again >.>
