Fan artists and creators are amazing. The dedication and time they put into making art related to their favorite media is honestly quite inspiring, and there are some extremely talented people out there that make us a little jealous!
Well, come on, if you’re anything like us, when you first played Zelda: Breath of the Wild you probably combed every inch of the map and scanned every detail of every statue. Well, maybe not that far, but one thing we remember in particular is how nature overwhelmed the ruins and statues scattered around this apocalyptic Hyrule. It felt like we were exploring an abandoned castle in the middle of an English field!
Artists edlothic has managed to recreate some of these statues from Breath of the Wild in stunning detail, complete with artificial moss and ivy leaves. You can even see the green and yellow spots at the base of the statues as vegetation stains the stone.
Created using a 3D printer – as confirmed on Reddit – Edlothian has crafted a handful of fun and gorgeous looking Breath of the Wild-inspired creations, like this goddess Hylia statue and this adorable Korok-inspired diffuser. We can’t get over how happy little Korok looks in the water!
However, Breath of the Wild isn’t the only Zelda game that Edlothian has made some outstanding recreations of. One of his big projects is recreating the Forest Temple from Ocarina of Time, and not just the structure itself. The artist has also created enemies that will invade the finished temple, and they look just as spooky as you can see them in polygonal form have memory.
Every single stone is visible individually and the drooling Deku Baba with bloodstained lips is ice cold. Literally no stone is left unturned! Given the treasure chests and pools of water surrounding the structure, we think Nintendo should task this person with creating a miniature version of each dungeon.
Skyward Sword also got some love last year when Edlothian designed a stand for his Link amiibo. And the stand looks just like the place in Skyloft where you get the canvas! The wear and tear on the statue and the tilling on the stand floor is simply stunning.
We can’t imagine how much time it takes to create these and my goodness do we want them all. Hats off to these wonderful creations, Edlothian! We can’t wait to see what you make next. Maybe there are some wearable masks from Majora’s Mask on the table?
We’ve really only picked a handful of Edlothian’s work from the past year to showcase, but there’s loads more to choose from if you’d like! It’s totally worth it. You can follow Edlothian on Twitter, Instagram, and Tik Tok.
