Being a gamer and coming across a piece of gaming art that truly captures the excellence of the desired game or franchise is always a pleasure. Today is one of those days, as we take a look at the legacy The Legend of Zelda franchise has created.
The above image was created by John Su, who is an programmer at Blizzard Entertainment and an art hobbyist. Looking at the image now, we are taken back to the roots of what The Legend of Zelda franchise has done for gamers. We can see the design progression of both Zelda and Link as the franchise paved its way forward, and while there is always certainly going to select fan favorites I believe each of the drawings provides some level of satisfaction for fans.
John Su has also posted in the Twitter thread other fun ideas he had when designing this piece, we can see that the Super Smash Bros. smash orb was jokingly placed in the middle of Zelda and Link and also a rupee. While this art piece is obviously incredible, I can't help but float the idea across that Ganon and his design progression would be a welcomed addition. Nice snag Destructoid!
