The Glory of Skyward Sword

Yup, that’s a long image alright, but damn, is it a cool one. It’s from artist Larry D. Warren Jr. who as you can see, is incredibly talented. I have to imagine he works in the industry in some regard.

This is his tribute to the most recent Zelda game, Skyward Sword. It’s one I haven’t played because I managed to resist buying a Wii for six years. Everyone I knew had one, so I played all the games, up until about three years ago when people stopped playing the system altogether. But Skyward Sword is supposed to be the one bright spot for the Wii in a long time.

What can I learn about it from this picture? Zelda is rocking out with a new instrument, a harp. Gorons are now professional wrestlers. Link has a new sidekick that’s some sort of ghost ballerina. Yep, that about covers it.
