Even after all of these years, official art has been hard to come by. The original releases had dark shading and weren’t very large to begin with. However, I have stumbled upon the “Holy Grail” of high resolution re-releases of the official art at the German site ZELDA EUROPE. All appear to be touched up, recolored, and will make a great addition to any Ocarina of Time collection whether printed out or kept on your computer.

More after the jump!

There are a lot of new details in these images. Textures can be seen on skin, clothes, and armor. Examples include Ganondorf having two toned irises and Zoras actually have green lining under their eyes. Remember, these are just a couple of examples of new details I’ve seen. The high resolution pictures can be seen at the Artwork and Illustrations pages. But I warn you, th0se images are HUGE. Please share what new details you see in the comments below!

    Ah, the last picture brings so much nostalgia~

    • Punnutty

      Yes it's looks so much like the original hang on… it is the original with more detail, thats pointless.

      • Punnutty

        If you can read this nintendo I don't like the original artwork being updated it removes the clasicness from OOT 3D. OOT 3D is a remake, not a new game so please don't mess with the original artwork.

        • Vio

          ITS THE SAME ARTWORK. Its just at a higher resolution than we've seen it before. Nothing has changed.

  • MIdna talks weird

    THESE R SWEETNESS AWESOMENESS AND COOLNESS!

  • ganonlord

    New official artwork that looks just like official artwork from 13 years ago? I guess it shows how far we've come. At least Ganondorf's appearance here is similar to his appearance in TP.

    • MoronOfTime

      It's the same game?

      • goronbot

        it is almost the same game but with new features added

    • PhantomVII

      Nintendo would be taking a dangerous risk by changing the art style and overall appearance of the game. And Ganondorf's appearance is no different from what it was in OoT; I don't understand how that looks more similar to TP.

    • Punnutty

      Do you mean Ganondorf is in his human form like TP or do you realy think he looks like he does in TP man he put weight on after OOT.

  • Lala

    I have a feeling I will be appreciating the remake much more than the original.

    I know I will get over nine thousand thumbs down for saying this but meh… never really enjoyed the original N64 one. But I have a feeling I will become a huge fan of this remake though. 🙂

  • Ashmic

    Why would you touch up official art from an old game, this is the same Offical artwork as the last time, ……………am i the only one who sees this as wrong..

    • PhantomVII

      Because it was never displayed in that kind of resolution.

      • Ashmic

        I don't get why everyone is obsessed with resolution, A good picture is a good picture, thats all

        • Banana

          it's about quality, bb.

    • Punnutty

      For luck, that some people might think it's new artwork and buy the well thought out game.

  • Legender

    Beautiful! I was a fan to begin with, but to see these in high res is amazing! I mean, that Volvagia artwork is just… HNNNG

  • CorvosKK

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. Just archived all of them lol. Honestly, I'm kind of surprised, because I don't think I've seen the official art for the OoT Skull Kid or of OoT Ganon.

    Really awesome stuff, love the textures to them.

  • MIdna talks weird

    THIS IS SO COOL GANONDORK LOOKS SO COOL! I WONDER IF THEY EDITED THE BLOODY PARTS AT THE END OF THE GAME?

  • missile tits (impa)

    I never saw the original artwork, but even this is refreshing because kid link even resembles the ORIGINAL link drawings from the NES “the legend of zelda” instruction booklet! Who remembers that art? Ahhhhh….. memories….

  • TheMaverickk

    Although they updated the art resolution, I find that there's sort of a weird kind of white rough edge around all the black outlines for whatever reason.

    Possibly a side effect of the upscaling?

    • starwebs1

      I don't see it.

  • Wolflink12

    I'm actually really dissapointed in these. They should have used actual paint rather than photoshop, or at least put more effort into the coloring rather than just using the airbrush tool for all the shading. They look like a fan took the original artwork and just photoshop colored over everything. Ew. The art seems very distasteful in general.

    • Vio

      Um, the art is identical to how it always was, its just at a high res. They would of used the exact same images to print in magazines when OoT came out.

  • HELLO

    W@W! Those pictures are really awesome… (Zelda Looks pretty sexxy) WHO SAID THAT!!@@! Anyways I like those pics. I'm suprised not to see majora's name tho!

    • MIdna talks weird

      ZELDA DOES NOT LOOK GOOD

  • MIdna talks weird

    THESE ARE SO GOOD! I STILL WONDER IF THEY TOOK OUT THE BLOODY PARTS AT THE END LIKE WHEN YOU KILL GANONDORK AND HE COGHS OUT BLOOD OR WHEN YOU GIVE GANON THE LAST FEW BLOWS!

  • Ya the Gannondorf picture is very high quality and so epic! I can't wait for the remake, I wonder how they detailed Death Mountain, or even better, Zora's Domain!

  • KLAMY

    What te heck is adult link doing to kid link?????????????

    • starwebs1

      Jumping on him out of the sand portal from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

      • KLAMY

        Lol, (playing that game myself)

  • Just wanted to say, the Link and Sheik "Serenade of Water" pic is now my desktop background. =)

  • omg… what the **** is adult link doing to kid link (the rest of this post is censored)

  • vick

    ganondork looks so shitty its laughable they call him a villan.

  • Megaman-Omega

    Wow I never noticed that. Looking closely at Phantom Ganon. His mouth under his mask is actually sewn shut.

    Damn you're right these high res scans are amazing. So many little details in the characters

  • cristian

    ever notice links left handed?

  • I swear kid Link is giving adult Link a shoulder ride…
