Just the other day we had this awesome Studio Ghibli/Zelda mashup, and now artist David Pilatowsky has gifted the world with these beautiful Zelda and Pokemon watercolor-style characters.

Between the cuteness factor and the skill of the art itself, they’re definitely worth a look.

Check out more examples after the break…


We’ve already seen what Mario, Sonic and Zelda’s Temple Of Time look like in Unreal Engine 4, but now Michael Eurek is back with another Unreal look at The Legend of Zelda. More specifically, Zora’s Domain from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. He notes:

Here is a new environment piece I have been working on for the past two months. Continuing with the Zelda: Ocarina of Time theme, I decided to make Zora’s Domain. This is simply fan art and a way to put the past year’s worth of learning into one piece. Ocarina of Time is probably my favorite game, so I find it fun to re-imagine the environments as places that could possibly exist.

Some assets were used from Epic’s demos, and some foliage came from the Tropical Forest asset pack on the Unreal Marketplace.

While part of me likes this glossier version of Zelda, another part of me misses the old-school Nintendo graphics. What do you think?

To pay homage to his favorite game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Joseph Zawada spent over two years recreating the iconic castle in LEGO bricks. He meticulously built each section of the castle, noting that the round roofs were the most challenging aspect of the build.

The gigantic castle island and surrounding vegetation breaks down into about 40 pieces. It’s massive, looks amazing, and Zawada should be proud of his LEGO Zelda tribute.

Check out a video about the build after the break.

As you can probably tell from this custom Wind Waker-inspired GameCube, artist Vadu Amka has a thing for The Legend of Zelda. It looks like some sort of ancient machine. The level of detail is impressive—it even features Hylian numbers for the joystick ports.

The custom cube took roughly three months to create, and while it isn’t for sale, you can check out a video after the break that Vadu shot so you can see it up close.

It features the many incarnations of Link over the years and it comes in a black wooden shadowbox frame, so you can hang it up right when you get it.
