EternaLegend has gone to her roots so to speak and has put together this beautiful portrait of Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild. After putting in 380 hours into the game and finally beating it, she was inspired to take on this particular project. Her interpretation of Zelda is absolutely stunning. Skyward Sword Zelda is my favorite, but this is the best incarnation I have ever seen of the character. She is regal. She is stunning. She gives off a sense of wisdom. You can also tell the amount of passion that EternaLegend put into the piece. It is nothing short of astounding.

Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild

EternaLegend has put so much work into Zelda fan art over the years that some have even mistaken her artwork as actual promotional material. Her level of quality is even better now. While she may have taken a step back from working exclusively on Zelda, her passion remains.

If only Nintendo would hire her as a concept artist! I’d love to see her vision of some of our most iconic characters, and if her mishmash with Death Stranding and Mario is any indication, she has quite the imagination and the talent to make it happen.

You can check out EternaLegend’s Twitter, Deviant Art, Instagram, YouTube Channel, TumblrArt Station, and Facebook to find out about all of her projects.

    I’ll give credit to that art. Looks a little more ‘real’, down to earth and has a sense of charisma in her expression.

    Nintendo shouldn’t be afraid to put these more serious emotions into their characters

    Nice painting, but it doesn’t even look like her much really. Her face is different. Even the eye color is wrong (BotW Zelda has green eyes).

    A painting of a generic pretty blonde Barbie who happens to have a triforce on her belt.

    All in all, I still liked it 8/10
