    ROUND #255: Legend of Zelda Monster Redesign

    topic:

    ROUND#255 - Legend of Zelda Monster Redesign

    This week's awesome topic is brought to you by Clark, who didn't have the time to post it this week. So instead you get the lame ol' me.

    This week we're going to be redesigning a creature from the original N.E.S. game "the legend of Zelda". The game has a good amount of baddies in it as most people know, but I'm going to limit the choices down to 5.

    They are the following:

    Octorok: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Octorok

    Tektite: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Tektite

    Peahat: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Peahat

    Pols Voice: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Pols_Voice

    River Zora: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/River_Zora

    try to maintain the concept of the creature while updating its look. these are pretty old designs that are deserving of an update. so go nuts and give these designs a new twist.

    Round Requirements:
    - choose only the listed monsters to redesign.

    - you only need to redesign 1, but you may choose to do more if you like. just keep them in the same image.

    - your design should be recognizable as to which monster you are redesigning.


    Deadline:

    April 18th 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?p=3405679

    It's very tempting, big fan of the zelda games, and I remember encounter these buggers quite often. Dunno if I'll have time but we'll see.
    I do have to point out that three of these creature seems to break some rules for cow, peahat is more of a plant-like creature, river zora is a humanoid(ish) and Pols voice doesn't really seem like a complete creature if you think about it. I assume that we can re-design these critters so they are more cow-friendly so to speak.

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Love the topic! I was a huge fan of the original games on the NES.
    Going for a Octorok, only much larger and scarier.

    Some quick silhouettes I drew for the Tektite option. I wasn't sure how much leeway we had, so some of the silhouettes are wonky, but here they are.

    Man, and I thought the last topic was tough. I decided to muck around with what in my opinion is the lamest of the options, and in the end the most difficult to pull off because of its simplicity. (No offense Si ) Not sure if I'll have time for another one, but this was a good test none the less.

    Whiskey Sour: You should just title yours "Badass". Very nice.

    Whiskey Sour: Dude your stuff lately is looking fantastic, great improvements lately, man! This image is just classic zelda, although I do have to mention a couple things about Link, one is um....where is his sword? he's holding a boomerang and his sword sheath is empty, and second thing is that it a freaking big ass sheild! Although either one could be explained by the plot of this particular adventure, his sword was taken by moblins or bakoblins or something and he got a larger sheild because he got smaller due to a curse by a wizzrobe, or something like that lol. I'll be waiting for the final, should be epic!

    aburnier: nice initial silhos, although when I see these I don't think tektites. They are usually almost always portrayed with a single eye and fours limbs, so try to work with a bit into your silhos, and of course make sure those limbs look like it can lauch the tektites upward a fair distance.

    diheb1: those heads are huge, try to see if you can push those designs a little further as well as they are a bit too close to the original designs, this is a re-design challenge afterall.

    scorge: I think you can manage to make it even meaner, wondering how you'll tackle the others as well.

    Here's some sketches for the River Zora, not sure if I should make it more bony like some amphibians or very scaley and fishy. I may also play with some sketches for the other critters as well before settling on this one.

    Hey COW Rookie here, but I love the challenge and it inspired me, so I thought I'd give it a go! (:
    Okay I chose to do Peahat - Here's my initial sketch for the composition - let me know if he's too plant like or not recognizable, he mutated a little since the first game ;P
