It's incredible how you transform an old game into a whole new art! The side scrolling style is gave a real charming detail in this art. The use of strong and cold colors are beautiful and the place is inspiring. I truly loved it!

It would be great if you let a bigger version of it to download so we could see better the details, but it's okay.

Also, I envy you for doing such beautiful trees/plants your shading really is amazing. The spiders are very cute (IMO) they don't seem to be dangerous. XD

Congratulations! Please keep the great work!

Fantastic Colors and setting.

Focus seems to be a bit tiny - mainly on Link and a small bubble around him, then a bit on Ganon's face. Perhaps unify that focus between them.

The detail on Ganon's face seems to clash with his rather simple arms and torso area. I would have loved to see some ornate armor plating like in the source concept art and maybe some more detail on his arms. The amount of detail on the environment and Link just further highlight a lot of the simplicity on Ganon. Though, great job translating his face to your own original work.

:jawdrop: WOW. This is absolutely incredible. It's always fun to see artists reinterpret old 8-Bit games - they're so simple-looking that there's a ton of room for creative reimagining. This look really fits into the Zelda universe well...it would be awesome to see a Zelda II remake that looked like this.

Amazing! This game really needs more love.

I can't really offer much in the way of critique, but I will make a veeeeeeeery minor note on the correspondence to the game: The Link from the original Legend of Zelda and Zelda II has brown hair in his official depictions.

This is amazing, I am going to proudly put this on my Vita.

Orioto is there any chance you can do a Link vs Shadow Link from Zelda 2?
This is the same art style as the one that gave you the thought for this one. [link]

Looks great! Some nice ideas like for instance replacing the old Link for the one in Twilight Princess, or -although the source is from a 2D game- Link is now surrounded by a realistic 3D forest if you know what I mean. Would love to see a url to the original concept art used for reference and inspiration. I remember that hostile pig-like creature, I think your version is spot-on: ugly and dumb, wild and horrifying. Again, great work.

Also, I believe fans can recommend games for a possible next artwork? I cannot recall where I've seen this and not sure if you appreciate any suggestions, but if you do, what do you think of 'Secret of Evermore' as your next work?
