Did you know that Link’s overall look drew inspiration from Disney’s rendition of Peter Pan? It makes sense when you think about it. And as much as the creators of Link and The Legend of Zelda were inspired by outside sources in their design of the classic character, so were the following artists who have created the most amazing Link fan art.
Countless artists have tried to put their own spin on The Legend of Zelda over the years, and with good reason. It’s one of the greatest video game universes to ever exist. (Some people have even made impressive Zelda fan films, like this one.) However, the artists below have taken their Link fan art to a whole new level, reimagining the famous character in interesting situations, as well as giving him incredibly unique makeovers.
You can imagine any of these amazing examples of Link fan art being the basis for their own video game, or even their own movie adaptation. Let’s hope the folks over at Nintendo take the hint and hire these artists ASAP. Without further ado, take a look at the world’s best collection of Link fan art below.
