Zelda Fanart Spotlight- Golden Goddesses

Welcome to today’s Fanart Spotlight. I usually try to find art by artists who have not been featured before so that as many different art styles and interpretations as possible can be found here on the front page. However, Karlen Tam, whom Knowlee wrote about just last month, has made another amazing contribution to the Zelda community worthy of a Fanart Spotlight, with this digital art piece appropriately named Golden Goddesses.

This picture must be seen at full size for the amount of detail to be fully appreciated. Each goddess has an elemental theme and is holding their respective pearl from The Wind Waker, and is encompassed in a larger monochromatic dome, as if they were laying dormant inside a lager version of the pearls. Surrounding them in Hylian is a quote of the goddesses’ roles in creating Hyrule.

“Din, with her strong flaming arms, cultivated the land to create the earth. Nayru poured her wisdom onto the earth to give the spirit of law to the world. Farore’s rich soul created all life forms who would uphold the law.”

My personal favorite part of this artwork, however, has to be the work surrounding the orbs. The Goddesses are in much more stylized linework surrounded by a decorative landscap with an ancient and whimsical feel that perfectly frames the composition.

Make sure to check out Karlen Tam’s DeviantART page to see the rest of her amazing work (including an epic Magikarp watercolor), and as always leave your comments on today’s Fanart Spotlight below.
