Check out this thought-provoking and nostalgic art piece by John Su which shows the evolution between Link and Zelda
If you were hoping to see some amazing The Legend of Zelda artwork as you move happily into the weekend, then you’ve come to the right place. We here at DualShockers love to dip into the world of one of the best gaming franchises in existence and share with our readers the outstanding contributions fans of the series have come up with. If you have been around on the site for a while, you will have seen some of the many talented fan-art pieces that have graced our screens which have included a real version of the Deku Shield from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild crossed with Twilight Princess art, The Legend of Zelda fan made their own bottle of Lon Lon milk; plus many more.
Today fans can feast their eyes on this outstanding creative work of art by John Su, who is a programmer at Blizzard Entertainment and an art hobbyist. Here John showcases a design of Link and Zelda which firmly plants the roots of what The Legend of Zelda franchise has done for gamers over the many years. We witness the evolution between Links and Zeldas as the series paved its long and successful road forward through time and as they seem to get closer throughout newer games.
In the center of the artwork, you can see the Breath of the Wild versions of Link and Zelda, as those are the centerpiece, but eventually, your eyes are drawn down to the rest of the links as the chain trickles down. It’s most certainly a delightful trip down memory lane for many fans and if you’d love this image as a wallpaper for your phone, artist John has created an edited image in his Twitter post that’ll work great.
