No, your eyes have not deceived you. This is, in fact, Eternal Legend’s second Fan Art Spotlight.

The Zelda Universe community is extremely lucky – not only to have such talented artists among us, but to have artists whose talents only increase, amazing us more and more with each work of art that they create.

Eternal Legend’s first art thread was filled with impressive Zelda fan art. We featured this in her first Fan Art Spotlight, which even included an interview. However, I dare say that her new art thread takes things to the next level. Above is one of Eternal Legend’s newest pieces, Skyloft Flight. According to the artist herself, it is her own “imagination […] of Link riding on a magnificent sky beast from island to island within the skies”.

We’ll likely have to wait a while before Nintendo reveals Link’s actual mode of transportation in Skyward Sword, but if Eternal Legend’s depiction is anywhere close to the truth, I certainly wouldn’t complain!

Be sure to check out Eternal Legend’s new art thread and deviantART for even more fantastic Zelda fan art, and check back regularly, as she has told us that “there are more artworks on the way, both Zelda and original pieces”.

  • MrBaconsock

    That would be soooo sick… actually.
    Now I'm really looking forward to what the transportation will be like in the actual game.

  • ChainofTermina

    of course she has a second spotlight. she's awesome and deserves it. XD

    • Shaelyn

      agreed!

  • Death Killington

    So, every time someone posts decent artwork of something Zelda related, it's news worthy?

    • Fan Art Spotlights are an ongoing series of community features done on the main site.

  • Matt

    Um.. yeah… HOW IS THAT NOT EFFIN’ NEWS WORTHY?1!!

    Awesomeness.. just too much.. T_T

  • Ferisan

    Such an inspiration! I can only wish someday I can be this good ;A;

    • Lach Menel

      Dido. I love this, hopefully Skyward sword will make us this impressed. I love this picture so much that I set it as my desk top!

      • iTheorize

        OMG ME TOO xDDD I like to make art as well 😀 hope someday i can do that D:

    • ChainofTermina

      well I can only wish someday I'm as good as you. you're not exactly lacking in the drawing department either. XD

  • X x7

    This is so good! I really hope that there's SOME kind of flying vehicle thing in this game!

  • Eternal Legend

    I totally was not expecting this – another feature! I thought I was seeing things on the front page of ZU! xD

    Thank you so much for featuring my work yet again ZU! <3 I'm quite speechless!

  • LoZymugglegater

    Wow,this is amazing!The thought of having a flying Epona of sorts for transportation never even entered my mind until now.I wish this was actually going to be in SS.

  • Gold

    I have the honour of actually knowing Eternal Legend/Eel and I talk to her often. Shes a fantastic person and drawer and deserves to be in the Fan Art Spotlight. <3

    I especially can't wait for her next picture, as I know exactly what she will be drawing. ;3

  • MLink96

    Do you guys see the same as I do???? Its the bird from the Zelda logo!!! I cant wait!!!

  • MLink96

    hey dude.. its the same bird that is in the zelda logo!!!

    • DreamerJ

      Now that you mention it, it DOES look like the bird in the logo! That would explain sooooo much!

      • Eternal Legend

        I'm glad someone got the hint that I used the symbol of the bird on Link's shield. 😉

  • Hálfdanarson

    I actually mentioned a couple of months ago that it would be truly epic and amazing if Link were to battle a fierce dragon and when completed the dragon would become in your possesion so that you can travel up and down the sky but also through the vast lands of Hyrule. The dragon might also be the "lost friend" you search for in the game, and helps you along the quest.

    Now I'm hoping not to be disappointed when the game comes out, this artwork is fantastic but it also builds up the expectations for the final game.

  • DreamerJ

    This drawing is so beautiful! It makes me more than anxious to play the game. I can actually imagine Link flying one of those and even what the controls would be like! Awesome!
