The Ocarina Cycle by hyperionwitch The Ocarina Cycle by hyperionwitch
EDIT:  It was brought to my attention that I'm a big dumb who somehow messed up the Song of Time at the bottom for the Ocarina of Time side!  I must've not been thinking, as I made it right-A-up instead of right-A-down.  Fixed now!

The first of the prints I'm doing for a con later this year!  I love the N64 Zelda games SO GODDAMN MUCH, and I wanted to do something really cool to represent both of them.  I'm so happy with this piece, I pretty much don't know what to say!

Here's the flipped version, if you want to see the other side.

At some point I'll be printing this online, so I'll update this with that info when it's official, if anybody's interested!

The Legend of Zelda belongs to Nintendo

Wait... is that actual Hylian text lined around the ring? ...Does it actually say something? *Too lazy to translate it piece by piece into Japanese and then into English*

I can only read Twilight Princess Hylian, as that deciphers directly into English.

Haha, yeah, it is.  If I remember my own process correctly (embarrassingly I could have forgotten, but I think this is what I did), it just says The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask in Japanese around the edges on either side.

Oh my gosh, I can just stare at this for ages, as there are so many great details to absorb! * 7 * ////
I love the colours and parallel composition on both worlds * 7 *
And the little masks and temple symbols! And putting the sages' hands in the shield ofOoT link was a really nice touch! Y'know, cause usually we wouldn't take notice that each of their hands are so identifiable from each other ^__^ it's a cool perspective to take :D

The overall design of this piece makes it feel like it belongs in a temple or church because the style feels classical, historic, or ancient.  Your lines are crisp and are handled appropriately throughout the entire piece.  Placing the button inputs for the Song of Time as an oval frame is very cool.  Using the shields as murals for some of the people and abilities Link encounters during his adventures is a genius move; to me, placing these important elements on the shields serves as a reminder of why Link fought long and hard on his adventures: not just b/c it was his destiny, but also b/c he wanted to protect the innocent and all of his friends, and that they would do everything in their power to aid him.  In short, very mystical and legendary.  Spectacular job!:thumbsup: revamp Link

These prints will be at Nebraskon, for the moment.  If it goes well, I might do other cons, but for now that's the only one planned.  :)

Oh my gosh, this is so cool! I would love to get a print of this as soon as you make it available. Which con are you going to be at, incidentally? It's probably too much to hope that it'll be one I'm going to, but that would sure be cool to see your booth! =D

I just noticed one tiny thing that I thought I'd bring to your attention - I could be totally wrong on this, but is the song on the Adult Link side supposed to be the song of time? At any rate, I'm pretty sure that sequence of notes (right, A, up) doesn't match one from the game, but it's really close to both the sun's song (right, down, up) and the song of time (right, A, down), so I'm assuming you were going for one of those.

I totally wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been delightfully geeking out over your piece - there's so much fun detail to look at it! But if isn't too late, you might want to look at that before you print the final version. :) (Smile)

Haha, that's a really good catch.  I can't believe I messed that up!  It's indeed supposed to be the Song of Time--I'm guessing I just put the up instead of down because I was working on it upside down for a good portion of the process.  I'll get that fixed up, thanks for pointing it out!

As for the con, it'll be Nebraskon!  I'm a midwesterner with little money, so I gotta stay close to where I live, haha.

Interested, possibly.

Funny how I can notice the Song of Healing at the top and the Sun's Song along the bottom, here. Makes me wonder what's hidden behind the Links (that'll annoy me to no end).

Aw man I totally messed up and meant to put the Song of Time, I gotta go fix that.  But if it makes you feel better, I didn't put anything behind the Links.  :)

I suspected that's what you were after, but inadvertently, you put in the Sun's Song. Still very valid, and still works! xD

Really nice.  My only critiques would be Ganondorf and Adult Link's thumbs.  They seem a bit out of proportion, and Link's has one of the ocarina holes over top of it.

Beyond that (and it's really minor, and I only saw them because I was zoomed in looking at all the awesome detail), I think this is a fantastic piece.

:iconhyperionwitch:
hyperionwitch Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hrm, I can adjust Ganondorf's thumb, but I personally don't see anything wrong with Link's, it just looks a bit odd with the padding on the back of his gauntlet.  I do appreciate the note about the ocarina hole, though.  I must have missed it when I was checking it over--easy mistake to make when you've been working for hours, lol.  I'll fix those up when I get the chance.

Thanks for the comment!  :)
