A still-life painting would look handsome hanging on the wall of your dining room, but the astute observer will notice that this one contains mushrooms, turtle shells, power flowers, and gold coins. It’s a classical painting Super Mario Bros. style.

Etsy shop owner Lizustration takes some of your favorite fandoms and uses them as inspiration for museum quality still-life portrait prints. Her works of art include arrangements from The Legend of Zelda, Katamari, and Mega Man.

Check them all out 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.

If you grew up during the ’80s, then you know a thing or two about lenticular art. It popped up on just about everything back then, ranging from trading cards to cereal boxes. So this limited edition 3D Legend of Zelda Lenticular art is definitely a trip down memory lane in more ways than one. 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.

This beautiful Triforce nightlight was built by redditor BigBadBobBitchin as a Valentine’s present for his girlfriend. It’s made to look like an armory with some of Link’s shields and weapons on display in front of a faux stained glass Triforce crest.

Although he didn’t document his build, he is considering selling them on Etsy at some point.

Honestly, I wouldn’t want to mess with Link, but a robot Link? That bucket of bolts looks totally brutal.

We love both The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. But what would it look like if you combined the two games? The Tumblr site Shattered-Earth gave us a glimpse into the answer with a series of logos for Zelda done in Yoshitaka Amano’s classic Final Fantasy style. I don’t know about you all, but I think it’s rather well done.

It’s impressive to watch anyone do a speedrun, especially of a game like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Be prepared to have your mind blown because speedrunner Runnerguy2489 played through three of the game’s dungeons while blindfolded. Way to make every other gamer on the planet feel totally inferior, dude.
