EDIT 2: By overwhelming popular demand, I added Agahnim to the illustration. Nit-Pickers: I used the colours from the instruction manual, since the in-game sprite's colours were gross. Enjoy!

EDIT: I uploaded a 1440x900 version, in case people want to use it as a wallpaper.

WOW. This...This was an epic illustration.

Started as a whim on my twitter account ( eiffelart) with a couple of boss sketches - Ended many, many hours later as this monster piece.

Original size is about 1 1/2 feet by 3 feet. Each panel, the size of my monitor resolution (1920x1200).

This was a blast to work on and the culmination of many devoted years playing this classic game!

It features all the major bosses, sans Agahnim. They appear clockwise in the order of defeat! Also, note the time-appropriate costume changes~

I'm pleased the most with my redesign of Link. I feel like I could draw a whole slew of art for a new game or comic based on this design - *WINK* HIREMENINTENDO *WINKWINK*

Link, the bosses, and whatnot Nintendo

Oh my god THE NOSTALGIA. This is beautiful. I love how it's kind of reminiscent of the instruction booklet's style, but still very much your own. The Agahnim one is my favorite. Dem evil magic clouds, man.

Love this game. So many memories. You did an amazing job. I love the pick of Agahnim and Link the most.
