Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantART artist ShadowScarKnight‘s Majora’s Mask fanart, “It Looks So Sad…“. This fanart shows Link as a Deku at the beginning of the game shortly after he was cursed by the Skull Kid. He comes across this sad looking tree while on his journey to Clock Town. Tatl comments on how it looks like it could almost start crying at any moment due to the how sad the expression looks on its face. The two never figure out what or who the tree is though. The only hint they hear of who this might be comes from the Deku Butler who mentions that Link’s Deku form reminds him of his son and that he left on a journey and has yet to return.
And its more than likely that this journey will be one that he will never return from…
As I’m pretty sure with most people I never really thought too much of who this tree was when I first played through the game. I always did find myself wondering who it was though and it wasn’t until after I obtained the Mask of Smells and saw the cutscene at the end of the game that shows the Deku Butler crying in front of it that it finally clicked for me who it was. I felt bad for the guy. Here he was waiting for his son to come home only to find that he never was… I’m sad now.
