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.

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?

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

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.
