The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Fan Art Depicts a Wondrously Vibrant Forest
Artist the longestdistance crafts a wonderful setting that showcases Link in a magical forest
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask first released 19 years ago on the Nintendo 64 and even today, gamers are still diving into the popular sixth main installment of The Legend of Zelda series. During the Nintendo Direct on November 5, 2014, a remake of the game was announced for Nintendo 3DS titled Majora’s Mask 3D with the title then getting a release a few months later in February 2015.
As with anything that has a huge fan base, you can guarantee that someone will create something spectacular in tribute so, in this instance, the skillful fan is artist longestdistance. Originally the artist created this piece for an anthology for The Legend of Zelda series in which a fan-made book would feature illustrations from 18 games and then drawn by over 70 artists would come together, but unfortunately, Nintendo shut down the Kickstarter associated with the project due to “an intellectual property dispute”, so the longestdistance beautiful fan art was never featured.
Well, until now that is. In this amazingly dynamic artwork, we see a tranquil forest setting with Link gently playing a tune that the artist has called “A tiny forest song”. In the background, the trees merge together to almost create a stained glass effect, which with the radiant colors used, would look stunning in any home for that sole purpose.
The artist has stated that Majora’s Mask is their favorite Zelda game and to create this particular art piece, they had to experiment with a few different approaches that included adding fewer layers instead of their usual hundred before getting it just right.
If you enjoy The Legend of Zelda fan projects and creations, you will love this The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild divine beast themed mood lantern or if you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, we have a Legend of Zelda alarm clock that plays ‘Link to the Past’ that could help.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remaster will be coming to Nintendo Switch exclusively sometime in 2019 but until then, you can pick up the original title on Nintendo 3DS via Amazon.
