A graffiti artist and Zelda fan creates an impressive mural dedicated to the classic N64 game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 1998 and fans of the title continue to create fan art, cosplays and mods for other games celebrating the N64 title. A Ocarina of time fan recently decided to create a large graffiti wall dedicated to the classic The Legend of Zelda Title.
YouTube content creator and artist Sotepniques is known for spray painting impressive murals themed around classic characters such as Mario, and now he’s decided to base a graffiti wall on Ocarina of time. Sotepniques decided to found The Legend of Zelda the design around Young Link as an adult Link didn’t sit well with the piece. The Nintendo character holds a Cucco in one hand and the Deku Shield in the other, with Navi hovering over his shoulder saying “Listen!”
In the background of Sotepniques’ graffiti wall next to Young Link are the recognizable locations of Death Mountain and Hyrule Field from Ocarina of time. Players spend a large portion of their game traversing Hyrule Field, and it is the first location presented to players after leaving the starting point. Ocarina of time area called Kokiri Forest. Death Mountain looms over Sotepniques’ rendition of Hyrule Field as in Ocarina of timewhere it hosts the game’s Fire Temple and plays an important role for the Gorons.
Sotepniques explains why he chose certain colors for his Ocarina of time graffiti wall, stating that four different shades of purple make the mountains behind Death Mountain stand out better and highlight the area. Ocarina of timeDeath Mountain is created using two different shades of brown, while white is used to create the smoke ring floating above. The artist scratches additional small details into the graffiti mural using the edge of the spray paint to make the cloud look more menacing than the fluffy clouds on the opposite side of the creation.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The graffiti paint features many different types of greens to create an accurate Hyrule field with depth, trees, and grass features familiar from the N64 game. Young Link is featured near the center of the graffiti wall, and Sotepniques uses red and purple to contrast the mostly yellow and green colors that create the character. Behind Young Link and occupying much of Hyrule Field in Sotepniques’ graffiti wall is his artist tag, which the Ocarina of time fan decided to use pink colors to create a 3D metallic aesthetic.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is available on Nintendo 64, 3DS, GameCube and Switch.
