• Painter 11 + Wacom Tablet (entire one layer painting).
• Time taken: I can't honestly remember, but I watched the sun rise and set a lot.
• Original size: 1600 x 14500px

• This artwork is a gift back to the awesome Shaelyn FaeOfDoom- who sent me a surprise gift of A Link Between Worlds so that I could finally play it! Thank you so much! :heart:

Some of you might have remembered me making the huge Skyward Sword art piece a few years back. Well, I've done it again with A Link Between Worlds! I think this is almost a tradition from me from now on.

A Link Between Worlds is a fantastic game. Absolutely fantastic. If you own a 3DS, I recommend you get this game. It really brings back that "feel" of what a Zelda game should be - loads of areas to explore, absolutely beautiful music, unforgettable characters, your own choices to make and not much of a linearity.

I made this artwork while playing the game again and pin-pointing out the main events - which was a bit difficult at times since I really wanted to progress with the game and just drop the artwork, but I wanted this art piece to be completed, despite it being a mammoth task.
Not everything is in this artwork. Just the main events that I thought were most important to me and the game. Plus, the dungeons were drawn in the order that I personally went through the first time.
I've really been wanting to finish this before I head off to E3 2014 at LA this year! Exciting things are happening at Nintendo! See you all there!

Credits to Ag+, for the inspiration in the first place <3

Thanks for looking, and thank you for all of the support so far!

Excellent piece. I especially liked the part where you show the lorule landscape
JasonBall34 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2016
It's not just you, it really looks this way in the game, but it's especially obvious here that Moldorm looks like a hamburger. 

Nice work. I enjoyed the way the princesses' hair flow together into a yin-yang thingy.

At this point, I'm completely convinced that Legend of Zelda has the greatest fan art in the world.

I haven't played it yet, but this piece is super awesome!!! This really deserves a DD. If you did a Majora's Mask version, I would be your biggest fan :)

May I ask how you worked on this piece? If you sketched the whole thing in a linear way (up to down), or just added elements and then positioning them in a fitting place?
EternaLegend Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015
It's a bit of both. I do a rough sketch on paper first of the main elements (mostly going from top to bottom), then I finalize it digitally by blocking in the rough colours using the sketch beside me as a guide. When the rough block colours are done, then I go back to the top and start polishing/adding more elements and I just keep doing that as I slowly work down the piece.
Now and then I would add something and then position it where it looks best in the piece.

Wow! And you totally rocked it like that-- that's how you roll :ManI'mPretty:
Astonishing work, and keep it up!

I'm almost crying by HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS IS.
Sadly, I only look at this ten minutes for a piece that took... so much more.
You deserve all my respect.
I never played this game but I felt like playing ALBW just by looking at that.
There are so much details that I need to look at again..

Ah, I love when you make these long kind of art pieces! They're just so beautiful!<3 I seriously can't even explain to you how I feel while looking at this. It's.. wow. Honestly, wow. Anytime I believe you can't do any better, you pull one of these out! :heart: The absolute amazement and perfection in this piece is truly something and I honestly brag about you and your artwork to, like, everyone I know. xD I really wish I could just explain how I feel about this, but I seriously don't know what to say - whatever I say won't justify this.

I love it. I am beyond in love with this and I surely hope you do more of these long pieces in the future! The details are literally perfect and the way you made all the colors... ah, this is just so brilliant!
