The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening DX 3D Model
To celebrate Nintendo’s announcement of Link’s Awakening remake for the Switch that now has dreamy toylike-visuals I decided to model part of Mabe Village to look true to its original style. It’s the handheld Zelda game that I played the most and I really enjoyed bringing some of it to 3d life.
Just like some of my fanart remakes sometimes translating 2d sprites into models can be tricky and compromises need to be made. Notably the roofs, the wall blocks by the blue house and the stick fences all look slightly different. I also had to make the cliff on the left to look more like a ramp since I wanted it to look very close to the original from a topish down perspective. In the end I liked the results and I had to stop myself otherwise I would have modeled the entire overworld. Hope you guys like it, feedback is always welcome!
