Welcome to another Fanart Spotlight, everyone! Today we feature a piece of digital art called “Triforce Obtained” by Tim Bradshaw that mixes old school Legend of Zelda with new.
The artist uses the familiar Wind Waker style in this image, so at first glace it seems like this is a picture of the Hero of Winds. However, it quickly becomes apparent that this is actually the Link from the first game released for the series, The Legend of Zelda.
Set in a retro dungeon drenched in blue, Link is sporting his trademark brown hair and brown undergarments. He holds up a piece of the Triforce of Wisdom above his head, bringing him one step closer to obtaining the power to enter the depths of Death Mountain where Ganon awaits.
This digital work is also animated, capturing the epic and satisfying moment of victory whenever Link obtains one of the eight pieces of the Triforce.
Go see the rest of his artwork over at his DeviantART gallery, as well as leave your thoughts about today’s Fanart spotlight in the comments below!
