Zelda Fanart Spotlight- Poe Collector

HachiApril 24th, 2013 by Hachi

Welcome to another edition of Zelda Fanart Spotlight. Today we are looking at a digital illustration from brazilian artist KlausBoss. Poe Collector features a very striking moment in Ocarina of Time when you enter what use to be the Guard House. During those seven years the Hero of Time was sealed away, it had been refurbished into the Ghost Shop. With no guards in sight, a strange fellow whose face you cannot see now occupies the building. While he might look like a squatter at first glance with his unflattering disposition, he is surrounded by captured poe spirits. The artist has done a brilliant job of making them look as wispy as they do in-game, while making their colors stand out in the more dim light of the ghost shop.

There is so much art of Link, Zelda, and supporting cast, but it’s always a treat when an artist portrays characters such a minor character like this and helps breathe life into them using only what little we know about them. Even the small details in his surrounding such as the empty bottles scattered on the floor, and the dilapidated condition of his surroundings captures the dreary conditions Hyrule are under in the later part of Ocarina of Time.

KlausBoss has more Zelda art as well as work from several other fandoms on his DeviantART which you can find by clicking here. Leave us your thoughts on today’s Fanart Spotlight below.

    I love it, not much else to say…

  • DamagingLink

    That’s cool! And freaky…
    But what is that on his left? It has a little Triforce mark on it.

    • SuperNintendoNigga

      Maybe his wallet? Or if you believe the theory (That he was a guard) Maybe it was his guard ID or something?

      • DamagingLink

        That actually makes sense, it looks like a wallet (or an Iphone case XD)

      First I thought you meant to our left, or his right, and I saw that Triforce poster thing on the wall. But I’m not sure what that thing is to his left.

  • Justac00lguy

    Wow such a dark theme, suits the situation quite well.

  • SuperNintendoNigga

    Wow, this makes that place look comfy :3 Well theres the constant poe noises… Well if they could still talk you would have some intresting conversation partners :)

    I usually never look at the artworks posted but when I saw the still image on the main page, I just couldn’t resist. This is absolutely gorgeous!!!

    I agree it’s nice art but the character for me is completely wrong. My opinion of the Poe collector is that he isn’t a kid with a twisted hobby but rather a pagan sage or hermit who collects and shepherds souls. He protects the world from cruelty and evil. This image doesn’t fit that. But everyone can have their own opinion of art. Well done to the artist anyway.

    this is so the guard who is really tired at night and wants to see ghosts and have u noticed his arm band it has a triforce on it so that thing next to the creepy poe collector is his old triforce arm band

  • darknija9

    wow this is just amazing it really brings out what would actually look like or a different take on how it would feel that creepy yet at the same time interesting room the colors are good too just looking at that fire O:!
