real deku

Last month, we showed you guys some killer illustrations of realistic Zelda creatures by DeviantArt user NateHallinanArt. His latest piece of artwork is just as impressive, giving us The Indigenous Deku, “An interpretation on what real Deku might look like living deep in the forest.”

Their twisted root-like bodies are perfectly camouflaged against their forest dwelling, allowing them to sneak up on unwelcome visitors. Look closely, and you can see glowing red eyes coming from a Deku hidden inside the tree.

    Aw, I love Dekus. I like them better with more foliage on their bodies, but I don’t find this any less cute than the creatures from the games. It’s adorable how they hide in the trees, and carve into the bark! >v<
