The Fused Shadows from Twilight Princess have always been a bit of a mystery. Midna, Link’s not-so-trusty sidekick for that game is always eager to grab the pieces away before he can even physically touch them. Why is that, you might ask? ZU’s own EternaLegend has come up with her own answer to that question, summed up in a single piece of art.

“Something must happen to Link if he was exposed to the dark magic, which is what inspired me to create this design of mine.”

As always, EL’s superb digital painting is sure to impress. The colors fit the theme and the textures are super realistic, all part of the style we all know, love, and expect from EternaLegend. You can find more of her impressive artwork on her deviantArt profile–there’s a lot of it!
