Forsaken Voyage (Top 50 Winner) by magicwaffles123 Forsaken Voyage (Top 50 Winner) by magicwaffles123
My realistic-ish rendition of The Forsaken Fortress from Zelda Wind Waker. I made this piece for the Zelda Wind Waker HD Fan Art Contest, which won in the top 50! I tried to keep the basic shape of the fortress as well as link and his ship, but still making realistic textures. I guess you could say I chose cartoony colors too, I really like the warm and cool colors. Can you spot Ganondorf and the Helmaroc King?

This makes me think of the backlash that people had with Wind Waker's cartoon art style, and what else it might have looked like. I like this a lot though, the colours, lighting and shading just looks really nice.

Haha, Its funny if you look at my process of making this piece, it looked pretty boring! On one of the last days my dad walked up to me and looked at the picture. He said I should make the water a big sphere and that is what made this picture!

Can I reblog this on another site for an article I'm writing?  It will be credited, of course.  (And, if you agree, how do you want it credited?)  It's just fantastic.

Excellent work! This is simply awesomesauce. :D There's a great balance of realism with a dreamlike atmosphere, it captures Wind Waker and the flavor of the story very well. Fun to look at too, it's kind of like hide and seek! And I found Ganondorf and Helmaroc King!! =3

Kudos to you for the Top 50 - this piece has definitely earned it. Congrats!! ^_^

This is incredible, I tought is was from real gameplay, but the Wind Waker HD graphics are in the surreal and cell shader way, you should be hired to do the next Zelda graphics :D

PD: Your picture went as my lockscreen on my laptop in less than 3 seconds after seeing it, its really great :)

Haha, thanks! I know a lot of people are looking to see nintendo make their games like this, but I dont think that can happen on the current hardware they have. Something Like this could be rendered in real time in the right game engine but it would take a lot more tweaking and may not have the same result. I like that nintendo is keeping the same art style in mind personally. Something like Majoras Mask or Twilight Princess would benefit from graphics like this more than Wind Waker would. Im excited to see the mysterious wii u zelda that nintendo is talking about!

You managed to freak me out quite thoroughly haha. I JUST finished playing Wind Waker like 2 minutes ago and saved after a visit to the Fortress. It's just too creepy that this is up haha. On another note this is epic. This looks so cool!
