One of our very own Zelda Universe members has created yet another fantastic fan artwork piece towards an event only found in Skyward Sword!

Zelda Universe is very lucky to have some extremely talented artists within it’s community. One of them is Eternal Legend. She has continued to share some outstanding and impressive Zelda fan artworks, and has been on the spotlight several times in the past.

Recently, Eternal Legend completed yet another fantastic piece of artwork that puts the spotlight on an event that takes place in Skyward Sword.

 Spoilers ahead. You have been warned!

Today, we’re featuring her most recent artwork that is currently titled “SS Sky Battle Spoiler”. Eternal Legend tells us that the artwork depicts “a battle between Link and what looks like the corrupted Wind Fish in Skyward Sword.”

 Earlier today, we spoke with Eternal Legends about some of the behind-the-scenes work that was put into this project. Here’s what she had to say:

“This piece really was a challenge to me, in a sense that I could not find any close official Skyward Sword artwork as reference that contains this sort of “dark atmosphere” to it. So,  I had to make up my own as I go along while staying “close enough” to the official style of the game.

The Wind Fish was the most difficult part of this picture since I only had one tiny and blurry screenshot of him to use, and I had to draw him up from scratch to what he would look like if Nintendo ever did an official watercolour artwork of him.

Because of the limited software I used to create this (I did this mostly on Gimp and a bit of Corel Painter XI  at the beginning for the sketch), this literally took me hours and it made me exhausted in the end. I will not be making this mistake again as I plan to create more Skyward Sword watercolour art pieces and other Zelda artworks in the near future at a faster pace with more accuracy.”

We were excited to have a chance to talk with Eternal Legend about this particular piece of artwork, and we will continue to keep an eye on her future projects.

Skyward Sword is less than a week away! After seeing this artwork, is waiting even harder than it was before? Let us know what you think in the comments!

    Wow, very beautiful artwork.
    I dont do a lot of full color drawings but this watercolored master piece makes me want to put a whole lot more effort into my own drawings.
    Very nice attention to detail 😉

    Looks great. Fantastic even. I just hope that some moments in the game are able to evoke the magical, adventurous, sort of feeling captured in this picture.
