Welcome to this week’s Fanart Friday. Today I have chosen “The Little Hylian” by Flickr User Daniel Bressette. This picture reminded me of how Majora’s Mask was such a weird and fantastically original game that felt like a Studio Ghibli film. Like Chihiro in Spirited Away, Link finds himself in a magical new land and is instantly running around trying to save everything and everyone. Saving people and the whole world can take a lot out of a boy, so it’s nice to chill out every now and then, which is what I imagine Link is doing in this artwork, even if it is on top of the moon.
I love the custom typography and the simple little details like the eyes on the moon, the rose and Link’s scarf (when did Link ever have a scarf?). I’m a huge fan of the Chibi style so I really hope that Nintendo decides to one day do a Chibi style game similar to this.
