Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
Hey if they did it with Peach (Super Princess Peach) they can do it with Zelda! :D I’d play the sh*t out of this game xD
Fans of Doctor Who are probably well aware that the show has been turned into an animated series before. It looks like the BBC had recently flirted with the idea of making an animated series again - but in the end passed on it.
The above images are concept art for the proposed series created by DC comic artist Dan Norton.
Head on over to Dan’s Deviant Art page to see more images!
I accidentally just stumbled onto a bunch of Lorax color keys and environment art I’ve never seen before!! Maybe these are old, idk.
The art was all painted by monsieur Clement Griselain and you can find all the rest on his blog here
I especially like his concept art of the Once-lers office with the spiral staircase!
Concept to Final Design
In the 3rd pic you can see the one tree that he chopped down. The 5th pic depicts the axe hacker that was in the book. In the 6th pic there is a pail hanging from a pulley exactly like the one the Once-ler has on his lerkim. And in the last two pics, migrating barbaloots and a very broken down factory.
