*** (I would mention "spoilers", but seeing as how you have to see the artwork first before reading the artist's comments…)

My interpretation of the world of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I absolutely loved the game, so I wanted to create something as a "thank you" to Nintendo for it. :heart:

Everything was drawn from scratch. I could not put "everything" into this picture. Only the main events/areas/important characters /sidequests, whether it was small or major.

• Some characters were drawn more than once (for example, Groose and Ghirahim) because their roles and appearances in the story change.

• Despite there being four Silent Realms in the game, I only drew one of them to save some room, since each goal in each Silent Realm is exactly the same as the last one.

Important mentions:

A very special thank you to MasterSageComics for helping me with some minor edits/errors. Seriously I could not have done this without you. <3

Credit to Sarillini and the team for cracking the in-game Skyward Sword alphabet which I have used in some areas of the artwork. You can download it as a font here.-->…

Why don't you let people download this? I would have used it as a background for my phone.
EternaLegend Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
Downloading it would be the same as saving the image onto your computer/phone. There is no resolution/pixel difference if I were to allow the download option.
Levi-Dettwyler Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2015
But that's just a preview image. I'm pretty sure DeviantArt converts and compresses those, since it's hosted as a jpg. Surely you didn't upload it as a jpg?
HylianTwilight Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
Needless to say, I actually got shivers from this. Thank you for posting something that just makes the game 100 times more epic....
All the themes that are in the game are here...I think I love the Lanayru part the most.. Oh man, it's actually pretty surreal. 
EternaLegend Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2015

I love this piece. Im a huge legend of zelda fan =D This picture really does the franchise  credit =D You have earned my favorite =D 
By the way if anyone is interested, I am selling a few copies of the AMAZING  Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess for the Wii , here is the link… I wish more people got into this franchise 
vety122 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015
Oh, i love Skyward sword, mostly because of the storyline, graphics are great too, it's like they combined the cartoony look from the Wind waker and combined it with the realistic look from Twilight princess, and i also liked how they made this the forst in the zelda timeline, and that link and zelda are childhood friends, other than the, "Hi, i'm the princess of hyrule please save me" bullcrap.
