Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake by einen Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake by einen
EDIT - Looks like this one ended up on Kotaku! Thanks guys! However, I'd like to address a couple of things that seem to make people confused (in case people actually end up here):

Q. Why does Link look so weird? It doesn't look like Link at all!

A. Isn't it wonderful? It's much more fun to draw characters like Nintendo never would make them. Since I'm not, you know, actually remaking this game.

Q. Why is it still green? There was a color remake for GBC you know. This should have color too.

A. I know there was a remake, but again, it was more fun to draw it this way. I'm not trying to be logical here - I just never played the color version, and for me this is how the game should look.

I re-imagined a screenshot from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Game Boy as a newer game in the same style!

Made for Swedish gaming magazine LEVEL. This is actually my favorite game of all time, so it was real fun to draw.

Done in Photoshop CS5.

Love Link's expression. "I've seen some crazy things."

This is so awesome, I actually had a samsung case made with this. I hope you don't mind (• ε •)

And I'm showing it to everyone I know, so there's some promotion right there!

This is great. I love the colours! I'd enjoy seeing a whole game done this way.
