Zelda Fanart Spotlight – Don’t Tell Me…

KnowleeMarch 2nd, 2013 by Knowlee

EDIT: Just a few moments ago, I discovered that this fanart is actually a collaboration between two artists. I’m sorry for the misinformation that I presented earlier, but I have now edited the post to include the other artist who worked on this piece.

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantART artists painted-bees and pupukachoo‘s Majora’s Mask fanart ‘Don’t Tell Me…‘. This fanart shows the Happy Mask Salesman in the Clock Tower. He has been waiting patiently for Link to retrieve the mask he lost before something terrible happens. Now that moment has arrived and he is eagerly expecting the mask to be placed into his outstretched hand…

…only to realize that Link has failed to retrieve the mask from the Skull Kid who had stolen it from him. Now he is furious. Quite honestly I think it would be in Link’s best interest to run now.

I think the only other thing that is creepier than the Happy Mask Salesman’s smile in this picture would be the moon that can be seen at the top of clock’s tower. Actually scratch that, the smile is creepier. I can deal with the moon, but the smile, nope!

The artists has other artwork located in their galleries. Here is pupukahoo‘s and here is painted-bees. Please go give them both a look and let them know what you thought of this piece! Also please let us know in the comments section below!

Stay tuned for the next Zelda Fanart Spotlight! Until then!

    Well I’m glad I’m not the only one creeped out by him. As for the moon I always thought it just looked pissed off lol

    • Dr_Stein

      I think everyone who’s played MM is creeped out by him…

    • Merv?

      I always thought the moon looked constipated

      • linkasourous

        Lol I always thought that too!

    If I were Link at that moment I’d be like…STRANGER DANGER! GET AWAY FROM ME! Then I’d slice his legs off, which after proving unsuccessful (as all un-enemies seem to prove) I’d take off running and choose nto to associate with such a character.;) But that’s just me.

    • Hero_of_Skyloft

      Link never learned about STRANGER DANGER!, he grew up with kids (and nobody ever went into the forest).

      • Dr_Stein

        Link is WAY too trusting; first, he gets into a wagon with a complete stranger (Talon from OoT) And now he’s hanging around with that freaky mask salesman.

  • RubyDragonCat

    The ears look a bit weird…but why am I critiquing. I have no right to, my art skill is nowhere near this.

    Luckily for Link, the HMS doesnt kill him. He just grabs him and shakes the crap outta him, which would only kill a baby. I would be all: “Ugh seriously PUT ME DOWN. If that thing was so dangerous, why did you have it in the first place…”

  • Guy

    creepy :D

  • Cmaster

    The moon looks to much like Frankenstein.

  • Wind waker Link

    Never trust a ginger. Almost all major Zelda villains have been ginger or connected to a ginger in some way.

    • Dr_Stein

      I’m a ginger…… But I see what you mean.
