A Zelda fan creates stunning illustrations of key moments and locations from A Link to the Past to celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past debuted in Japan in November 1991 and North America in April 1992. To celebrate the game’s 30th anniversary, an artistic fan has created a series of stunning illustrations.
There are currently 10 illustrations in the anniversary series on Wandering Jas’ Reddit account, depicting many pivotal moments and important places from the classic game. This includes the first boss fight and the shrine. According to the artist, the images were created digitally using Krita, but a similar effect could be achieved using pencil and paints with sufficiently dark hues. The artist even raised the possibility of creating a coloring book as a Ko-fi reward after several fans expressed interest.
A link to the past isn’t the only game Wandering Jas has produced fan art for, as there is artwork for Transmitted by blood and Final Fantasy tactics.
Directed by Takashi Tezuka and produced by Shigeru Miyamoto, A link to the past officially takes place before the events of the first two games in the series. The story sees Link tasked with defeating Ganon and saving the descendants of the Seven Sages, and he introduced many aspects that would become staples of the series like the Master Sword and the Parallel Worlds.
Wandering Jas’ digital illustrations are not the only recent example of The legend of Zelda fan art. Artist and cosplayer Li KovÃ¡cs Breath of the wild the work captures one of the most moving and haunting moments of the quest Capturing Memories and another artist combined THE Legend of Zelda and that of Katsuhiro Otomo Akira to create a striking movie poster. Likewise, a controversial fan theory postulates that previous Zelda the games were just Link’s dreams while he was sleeping Breath of the wild.
The legend of Zelda fans have more than works of art to get excited about. Most notably, it was recently reported that the highly anticipated sequel to Breath of the wild is expected to arrive in the winter of 2022.
Originally released on Super Nintendo, A link to the past has been ported and is now playable on Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS via Virtual Console and Nintendo Switch via Nintendo Switch Online.
