The story of Link’s Awakening is a very unique one in the Zelda franchise. Since the game is played inside of a dream, it makes for a really cool mindset. Although this picture was created for a fan story, I can imagine this taking place in the game as well. For instance, it could possibly be the hero taking a well deserved break after fighting his way through dungeon after dungeon. Regardless, this is a really good piece of art for the Marin/Link shippers out there.
Created by Sage-of-Winds, I really enjoy the ambiance of this picture. The clouds that are tinted purple and pink really help get the dreamy atmosphere across to the viewer. The whole scene feels a bit surreal. The spirit of Link’s Awakening is on full view here.
