The Windfish ~Pertheseus

This piece was done as fanart for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. In the game the Windfish is the manifestation of a god in the physical form of a giant flying whale. This piece is done in a digital format, which is one of the reasons I chose this. I like it because it doesn't really have a digital feel to it. It looks a lot like a painting in my opinion. The colors blend nicely and unlike most digital drawings it doesn't suffer from that sketchy look. I also chose it because i enjoy art like this. Well made fan art and concept art in my opinion really fleshes out pre-existing worlds and stories. it is one of my favorite forms of illustration and an area i hope to one day getinto as a means of gaining a fan base so I can get exposure for my own works. As a fan of many things myself I feel by creating a well made piece of art you can further connect with other fans.


  1. This piece is just stunning! I just love lighting and the details that's going on in here. I've also tried making a couple fan art myself but can never do something realistic like this. I never knew there were flying whales in Legend of Zelda.

  2. I agree with you about fanart creating a strong connection between fans. I love looking at fanart to see how people interpret characters differently. I've never played any of the Legend of Zelda games (which I hear is a sin), but this is so damn pretty it makes me want to play.
