Link and the Wind Fish by Selladorra Link and the Wind Fish by Selladorra
Edit: Now available as a print here --->…

This looked a lot better in my head. Seems to be the way most things are. :shrug:

"Link's Awakening" was one of the first Zelda games I played when I was a kid, and I always wanted to paint the Wind Fish because it was the most epic thing ever. Finally got around to it, only took me a decade or so!


Edit 2014: Wow guys @_@ I can't say I ever expected a daily deviation!! Thank you artichokes and Lyricanna for the feature!! I'm so honoured!!!! :happycry: :dance: :faint:

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-01
Link and the Wind Fish by Selladorra has stunning colour and depth. ( Suggested by artichokes and Featured by Lyricanna )
This is something I would love painted on my ceiling. xP The smooth transitions of color based off of the sunlight is so nice. It gives me a calming/sleepy effect. That's why I find this so fitting. Link believed the adventure was a dream until this part happens. I feel like the only way to make this art even more stunning is if it were in 3D or ocean sounds. I like the detail in the clouds. It makes the artwork look more busy and definetly worth looking at. I could just imagine that one of the seagulls is Marin flying with the windfish. The windfish itself looks so prestigious with his tiny wings. ^^ Overall fav!
What do you think?

I've always loved this piece, it is so beautiful!

I did a cover song of Ballad of the Windfish with lyrics, do you mind if I used this image in the video? :> I promise I'll credit and link back.

A.K.A. Link and the ungrateful bastard who dumped him in the middle of the ocean after all his efforts.

This is absolutely beautiful. That game was also one.of my favorites as a kid. I used to love when you finally met the Windfish and I imagine it looked just like this. Haunting yet serene and beautiful.d An excellent piece.
