Back in the middle of November, you may remember that we posted an article concerning a 2013 Zelda calendar. Unfortunately, the price of the official Nintendo calendar has grown considerably from around $12 to $35. Never fear though! If you do not happen to have money pouring from your pockets, there is an alternative option. An option available for free!

Deviantart user Woodland-Mel has provided a free and downloadable 2013 Zelda calendar on her site The History of Hyrule. For those of you who were not that excited about the official Nintendo calendar due to the previously seen artwork, you will be happy to know that the images used in this calendar originate from a contest held for the purpose of putting them in the calendar. There is art produced by deviantart users Shadottie, Hadace, Mikeypatch, Evelmiina, Karlen T., Skull the Kid, Josh, Aquanut, Ebillan, Tawny, Cojirou, and Breana Melvin. Here is just a sample of the art used!
