This is the most amazing Zelda-themed painting I've ever seen in my entire life and I've seen a lot because sometimes I type 'zelda painting' into Google and look at everything that comes up because I'M F***ING SICK LIKE THAT AND HAVE ZERO INTEREST IN GETTING BETTER. It was created by Japanese artist and serious Zelda fan ag+ to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise. Wow, talk about dedication. Because one time I spent upwards of three-minutes drawing a naked stick figure with comically giant knockers on a bar napkin before getting bored and setting it on fire. The bartender kicked me out after that but I didn't pay my tab SO I CONSIDERED IT A WIN. At least until I realized he still had my credit card.
Hit the jump for a ultra sped-up video of the piece being created, along with a link to an interactive version of the piece with all the characters identified.
Thanks to mcdeviant and Jessa, who both claim they were able to name every character without cheating. LIES!
