Zelda Fanart Spotlight – The Legend Begins

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantART artist aquanut‘s Legend of Zelda fanart, “The Legend Begins.” This fanart shows the moment where Link exits the cave where he receives the Wooden Sword from the Old Man who resides there. With the way the artist depicts this small part of the game it really shows how important this little moment actually is. This could technically be considered to be the very moment that the legend truly began for the series nearly 27 years ago. This young man is thrust into this quest to save what’s left of Hyrule by defeating Ganon and returning peace to the land. It truly is a huge quest for one to undertake especially for someone as young as Link is in this game.

And it is a quest that we all know that only Link will be able to accomplish…

I like the way the artist portrayed this little moment that only appears for a few seconds in the game. It really makes one think about that moment and how important it is to the series as a whole since this pretty much was the moment that the ‘Legend of Zelda’ truly started. It really gives life to this little moment.

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 please let us know what you thought of this in the comments section below!
