Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantART artist hadece‘s Legend of Zelda fanart, “Zelda- Until the last Breath“. In this fanart it shows Link from the original Legend of Zelda game about to face off against Ganon.
It looks as if before Ganon’s appearance that Link was studying some of the pillars that are around him. On all of those pillars there are etchings of the previous heroes as well as the helpers to those heroes in the Zelda series. Examples would include Link from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask and Midna and Wolf Link from Twilight Princess. Other items used by the previous heroes can be seen too; the Phantom Hourglass, the Transformation Masks, and the Ocarina of Time being some examples.
It seems as if this Link realizes that he too must follow in their footsteps and continue the battle that they started. Perhaps one day an etching of him shall been seen on those same pillars after his part in this battle has been completed.
I think this is a pretty awesome fanart. I like the references the artist put in there to the previous Zelda games in the series. It really helps put an emphasis on how much sacrifices the previous heroes have made and how important it is that this hero continues that legacy by defeating Ganon and bringing peace to Hyrule once again.
The artist has other Zelda-related fanart located in their gallery. Please go give it a look and let them know what you thought of this piece. Also let us know in the comments section below!
