We are back with more spectacular art from Zelda fans! Deviantart user Jimbo02Salgado has created this very unique piece. I won’t pretend to understand it completely, but I will say that this piece is kind of creepy in a way. The way Zelda is portrayed contrasts the sunny, happy Zelda from Skyward Sword that most of us have an image of in our heads. The campfire is a bit of a mystery to me, but maybe people wiser than I will see something more in it. Also, the Loftwing seems fiercer than normal, which adds to the overall creepiness. But of course you didn’t come here to read what I thought about this art. Enjoy this great picture!

    A more serious and mature look is exactly what this series need. But then again, Nintendo focuses mostly on little kids….kinda like V-Tech.
    They should make this artist art director. grtz from a former zelda fan who grew up and went on.

      You grew up, to what, 14? The only people who think Nintendo is for kids and that a non-realistic graphics style equals immaturity are the 14 year old KIDS who retain their juvenile fascination with violence and big explosions. These kids think they're so cool and grown up just because mommy and daddy finally allow them to play silly, mindless games like CoD and Postal.
      Thankfully, most people grow out of this childish mindset and start to appreciate what is really important in games: great gameplay, great game design and great fun, all of which Nintendo keep delivering like no one else.

        actually….i'm turning 35 this year. So it's about godamn time i quit Nintendo and traded it in for a more mature gaming platform such as ps3 or even better gaming pc.

          35, but still retaining the juvenile ideal of what a "dark" and "mature" game is and the dismissal of any game that doesn't fit that adolescent ideal, I see.
          Believing that playing games on other platforms makes you more mature is an attitude as immature as there can be. As I said, most people grow out of this childish mentality. But not everyone, evidently.

          You think you're mature because you play "dark" games and dismiss games that are colorful, vibrant and whimsical etc., but in reality it's the opposite.

    Perhaps this is partly a homage to Dark Souls?
