Hey duders,

Since the announcement of Ryan's passing earlier this year, I've been meaning to create a little tribute of sorts to the guys for all the years of entertainment they've given me. Unfortunately I was just starting my final semester of college, and found it pretty difficult to find the time to get anything worthwhile done.

I recently played through Wind Waker for the first time (criminal, I know), and found myself really wanting to draw something in that style, so I combined the two ideas and created this thing.

Sorry for making you a furry, @rorie.

I could not figure out, for the life of me, who Tingle was supposed to be until I read that, but I guess it makes sense haha.

Really nice though. I like Patrick in particular, for some reason. Probably 'cause he's the most directly inspired by a character in Wind Waker. Jeff's probably my second favorite on there.

Another one for the ol' Community Section, eh @marino?

This is seriously great work. The Bomb Crew have some tough decisions ahead regarding their avatar pictures. (I'm surprised you didn't make Alex look like Salvatore.)

I love how it seems like every picture of Drew must have him wearing the flight cap and scarf.

#17 Edited by Christoffer (2099 posts) -

Sweet artwork. Really love the looks of Jeff and Patrick. They could easily have their own saturday morning cartoon show.

#18 Posted by Chop (2010 posts) -

This is really, really good. Some of the best user art I've seen around here <3

Really good! DAT Matt Rorie.

Dog-Tingle-Rorie is hilarious. My only complaint is that Alex doesn't really look like a Windwaker character to me. All the others are amazing.

#24 Posted by MEATBALL (4025 posts) -

Fan fucking tastic!

#25 Posted by Fear_the_Booboo (771 posts) -

As a fan of Windwaker this is my favorite fanart ever. Awesome work !

#26 Posted by The_Nubster (2581 posts) -

Holy moly! It's all so awesome. I love how shifty Jeff looks. I would not trust Wind Waker Jeff around anything I owned. Get out of my house, Wind Waker Jeff.

#27 Posted by Robsamuel (122 posts) -

Love it.

#28 Posted by PoToSkull (130 posts) -

Going to agree with everyone else and say this is amazing! Nice work. My favorite is Vinny for some reason.

#29 Posted by hermes (1782 posts) -

That thing is awesome.

I really like aviator Drew...

#30 Edited by ll_Exile_ll (2131 posts) -

Loving the art work, would be great to see them in a more Wind Waker inspired background as well.

#35 Posted by alwaysbebombing (1859 posts) -

I love what you did to Rorie, Vinny likes look one jacked mofo' and Drew, well. He's definitely Drew. These are all really great.

Alex looks like he wants to sell me some illegal drugs.

Alex and Ryan look like some evil dudes ready to stab some people.

#41 Edited by JDP83 (95 posts) -

@teddie - Wonderful, sir. You matched the art style perfectly.

#42 Posted by StarvingGamer (9173 posts) -

This looks like Nickelodeon to me. Nothing specific about Nickelodeon. Just when I look at it I think, "Nickelodeon".

Also great work!

#43 Posted by Superkenon (1563 posts) -

This is completely amazing. Needs to become a print right the hell now.

#44 Edited by Cold_Wolven (2383 posts) -
