The Great Fairies of Zelda have always captivated me. They are beautiful beings with mystical powers that one could only dream of; what’s not to love about them? My favorite of the variations would most certainly have to be from The Wind Waker (though the one from Twilight Princess makes for a very close second). With their abstract figures and grandiose displays of color, these fairies make for some particularly beautiful artwork, including that of hadece titled “The Iridescent”
The piece depicts the Great Fairy bestowing her blessing upon Link in a mesmerizing way. The surrealism of this piece is very strong, as Link seemingly becomes one with the Great Fairy as she graces him with a magical gift. I love how the artist actually integrated the two figures together. It’s both haunting and beautiful at the same time.
The scene itself is so tranquil, it is impossible to not find yourself entranced by the mixture of a magical theme and beautiful craftsmanship. Believe it or not, this piece is not a digital product, but created with acrylics on paper! While digital art is most impressive and equally has its challenges to perfecting them, it’s very nice to see a traditional work of a gaming masterpiece. Thank you hadece for providing just that!
