Mt. Triforce, a tribute by the previously-featured “8 Bit Dreams” artist Campbell Whyte depicting Legend of Zelda‘s “collecting of the wooden sword, the meeting that begins the entire quest of the hero”.
A little Friday afternoon art interlude: Starting in early 2011, illustrator Campbell Whyte set himself up for a gargantuan task: taking all of the nearly 800 games released for the NES and doing a watercolor sketch a day based on each, more or less in alphabetical order. Surprisingly, it’s a pace he’s actually kept quite well, and the results are an awesomely stylized take on each, giving even the duds a fantastic facelift.
Above is a retrospective of the first 375 of the “8 bit dreams”, which you can browse more leisurely on Whyte’s blog, or find many still up for sale at his Etsy shop. If he hasn’t already covered one you’d like to see, commission him to prioritize via the shop & end up with the original itself.
