The Weary Hero by KaizokuShojo The Weary Hero by KaizokuShojo
I had a lot of fun with this one, oddly. Done last May, as you see…
It’s drawn on a small brownish flyleaf of a cheap paperback book, and despite the bleeding problems of it being such a tiny page and such fibrous material, I managed to get some decent detail on it. I’d put it in my scraps if it wasn’t such a surprise. It really is small for something on paper this very bleed-prone, about the size of my hand (and my hand is a bit less than six inches tall and a bit less than 3 ˝ inches wide).

The general idea of it is that Link from Majora’s Mask had to repeat the same three days,
over, and over, and over.
And he didn’t really ever seem to get a chance to rest… I imagine if he did, Tatl would have to wake him, lest the moon fall while he’s taking a nap….>> Or the Skull Kid find out and play a ‘prank’….<< And of course, in reality, Link would get some cuts and scrapes, if not worse. I know that technically he should/could have the Gilded Sword by the time he gets the Mirror Shield, but I was kind of lazy and just left him with that one.

EDIT: Wow, so many favourites so quickly! I'm shocked. Especially since this started out as just a doodle on a cheap flyleaf! :XD:

I don't know why, but Majora's Mask is actually my favorite Legend of Zelda game!<3
Very Nice made!

Pretty incredible! I also applaud you for using a cheap flyleaf. Sometimes it seems the most amazing things can come out of using those kinds of materials.

You draw a really really cute Link and a really really creepy moon up there, which means it's all perfect.

I think I like it more than Ocarina of Time, too, but it's a close contest. XD I like that there's more connection with the characters--you're more involved directly with their fates.
Thanks! :D

yea. though Ocarina of Time is longer it isn't nearly as hard and i played ocarina of time right after majori.s mask and even though theres not as many temples i did take longer on majori.s mask beating it . so i didnt really have that many problems beating ocarina of time to tell you the truth i like the game but its not my fave zelda game and i dont think its the best zelda game like everyone thinks it is . i just dont like how people give majoris mask the credit it needs

I think part of Majora's Mask's "problems" is that it came out toward the end of the life of the N64 (and games that get that treatment often get ignored if they're not hyped a lot) and it "re-used" graphics from Ocarina of Time (even though overall they were much better simply because of the expanded memory used.) So it gets ignored a lot. :/

yea i guess so. even thouth it was so much harder and i think everything like the towns and story was way more put together then ooc. beating majora.s took alot more Effort the ooc if you ask me. both good games but it does Annoy me a bit when everyone over looks this game.

Awwwwwwww..... Do you have an N64 or Gamecube? I can't remember...>>;;;;; The N64, GC, and Wii all have Majora's Mask on them. It's one of the best games ever. :heart:

I have all three! N64, GC & wii, but unfortunately don't have the money to buy the game o3o my GC has the ability to play international games though so, I'd probably be most liekly to get it on that one.

I find copies of the Zelda Collector's Edition for GC sometimes at game shops... It has The Legend of Zelda, Adventure of Link, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask (as well as a 20-minute Wind Waker demo) and it's great, except....when playing Majora's Mask, people (including myself :P) have found that the game sometimes freezes, and....since MM can't save at any time you want, you lose everything you've done.........>>
But it's good if you can find it cheap/relatively cheap... But 'cheap' is so relative, especially when you have bills and such. :P

Cheap for me I'd say is 10€ which would eb rougly $14 I think. My friend had the collectors edition for GC and I borrowed it for a day but had to give it back and that was years ago! I wish I could find a copy here, but even if I did it would probably be in spanish. I have the windwaker collectors edition with ocarine of time, but am still hunting for majora's mask.

I don't think it's what ANYONE imagined when they first play through the game...XD The moon goes all glowy-eyed and starts TALKING and opens its mouth and eerily says it'll eat everything, and Majora goes up into it, and then you follow........into a pretty sunny happy-feeling (but very empty) field. Wei~rdness.

well, they're lame :P don't recognize good art when they see it... nobody cares about a random torn edge -hardly noticed it at all- you should tell them that the mona lisa was originally painted on an old piece of wood.

you're welcome :D i really like the gate, and the path-thing leading to it...
