Hey guys.
Today was Zelda's 25th Anniversary, and in celebration of this momentous occasion I thought I'd share this recreation of the Zelda: Wind Waker intro scroll.  I recreated it back in 2005 using pencil, ink, and water colors and it took approximately 2 weeks to finish.

Anyone know how to make a paper looked old? Dipping in tea perhaps?

I'd love to see a Zelda 25th Anniversary boxset for the Wii, like what they did with Mario.

This is now displayed upon my wall, and I must say, I'm loving it! Thank you very much.

@DarthOniXVIII:  Take a photo and post it!  I'd love to see how it looks in your place.
#31 Posted by TooWalrus (13195 posts) -

That looks totally rad. The crappy internet at my grandparents house mean it'll take like 6 minutes to download. Man, Wind Waker was fuckin' awesome, wasn't it?

#32 Posted by JoeyRavn (4973 posts) -

That is incredibly awesome. Any tips on how to print it? (Paper, quality, ink, etc.)

#33 Posted by Plasticpals (118 posts) -
@JoeyRavn: 
 
It really comes down to how much money you want to spend.  Check out your local printing stores, some have the ability to print digital files onto a variety of material including canvas or photo paper.  I've had a piece of similar size printed onto photo paper (which supposedly lasts 100+ years) for around $80.  Printing onto canvas is a little more expensive.

Hope I'm not too late to the party, but some other sweet Zelda 25 year art have appeared on the internet.
