Hyrule Historia - Art

Now, I might as well start off by saying: Most of you have PROBABLY already seen this.  But for those of you who haven't, this is for you.

Hyrule Historia has already been translated 100% by someone known as GlitterBerri, but as I've already said, I'm resisting the urge to look at it, as I want to wait for the book.  However, I have looked at some of the art, and it looks amazing.  You can find the full translation here:

I'm gonna go over some of the art now, so here I go.

*NOTE:  I do not own any of this material.  All artwork belongs to Nintendo.

This is the original concept art for Link in Twilight Princess.

This was the sketch for Ganondorf's "Ganon form" in Ocarina of Time.

This is the design for Bellum from Phantom Hourglass.

This was the original concept art for Faron Woods in Skyward Sword.  They obviously changed a lot for the actual game, adding glowing mushrooms and making it overall more cheerful.

Here is the final design for Demise's 3rd form in Skyward Sword.

Let it be known that there is MUCH more art in the book, and the rest can be seen in the link above, but this is all that I have time for right now.  I think it's pretty interesting to see the designs that they drew before they even made the game.  See you next time, and don't forget to follow this site!

<--------- (and up)

Alright, that's all for now.  Bye!  :)


  1. *Bellum is from Phantom Hourglass, not ST
    Anyway, I don't really like the beginning sketch of Link from TP. it makes him look It IS the "unfinished" look anyway. I'm just glad He didn't turn out that way. His ears a a bit too long.

    1. Oh. My. Gosh. I FEEL SO FREAKING STUPID RIGHT NOW. Sorry, I've played them both, and I know which game he's from. That was the stupidest thing I've done all day. And that's saying a lot. XD
      Okay, I'm fixing it right now.

    2. don't worry, everyone has those moments ;-P
      (especially men) XD
