Legend of Zelda - 16 / 01 / 09

    Prev Next

    I've been meaning to start this project for a couple of months, but wanted to wait until the movie posters are done. Today I broke down and started anyway. 9 games, 9 Penguin style covers.

    Inspired by 'Penguin by Design' by Phil Baines.

    Ocarina of Time is the first 3D Zelda. 3D games are made from triangles. The Triforce is also made out of triangles. Go figure.

    EDIT: I edited the wireframe head a bit to differentiate it further from the reference (a random 3D head on google image search) and make it a slightly better likeness for Link.

    , antiuser, outbreak, and 175 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      These need to be made into prints. I need the Zelda design! Great work.

      dude, I think this is your best one. I like that it is a pure redesign, cleverly pulling out the visual cues of the game without communicating an opinion of the game, such as in the goldeneye klobb design. (which, of course, is still true and awesomely funny, btw)

      that is most excellent looking.

      What does a wireframe head have to do with anything in that game? Fail.

      I like the book design in general, though.

      Only one suggestion would be to make these quadrilaterals all into triangles (cut them) -- they the polygons will truly be made up of triangles!
