The poster, cards, and cases do not include the big red logo at the bottom.

So yeah, when Nate posted about the Operation Moonfall art contest on ZeldaInformer, I immediately told the rest of the staff that I was going to enter. A few of the guys were skeptical though, but I told them I was going to enter the contest regardless, because I love competition. This isn't exactly 100% complete to be honest, this is only the first half of the art. ._.''

I was unable to complete the art 100% completely because my college finals got in the way, so I've only worked on this for about 12 hours. I adjusted the art to look more complete, so I guess in a sense that this is part 1 of a Moonfall trio of art. I've had the idea for this art for quite a while, since sometime in March I believe, but I've never really had any incentive to make it.

There are a few things I will touch up on when I finish my art trio, such as the four giants. I've redrawn them so much that it's just... ugh... This was the best I could make. I also need to readjust their colors to make them fit in with the rest of the image. I didn't want to go with this mural style because of how overused it as become since that incredibly epic 25th Anniversary piece made its way around the internet. I've tried other dimensions for this, such as a square, widescreen ratio, and a shorter in height version, but this is the best format to convey the image I am making. P.S. The moon was a bitch to make, as was the bottom half. Dx

This is for the Operation Moonfall contest ONLY. You are NOT permitted to use this art in any shape or form or alter it in any way, let alone use it for commercial use. So don't be an asshole, leave my art where it is in its purest form. Also, excuse the large logo at the bottom right corner, it's to help prevent art theft.

Also, be sure to check out ZeldaInformer at this [link] for all your need to know Zelda news and general Nintendo news! We also write exclusive articles only available on our website that range from opinion pieces, to theorizing.

OUTstanding concept! I congratulate you.

With the moon combined with Majoras Mask in the pic, it makes the pic slightly creepy (considering its the darkest game in the series). But other than that, good job.

There are no words great enough to describe how spectacular this art work is. Just...BEAUTIFUL!

This looks Beautifull,capturing Majora's Mask's unsettleling,symbolic tone that fewer games have captured.

This is stunning beyond words! Absolutely phenomenal work; I really like the details and the different perspective on the game. I especially enjoy the subtle twist in the horns on the mask, and how it fades into the moon. Very well executed and put together. The amount of effort put into this piece is nearly palpable! :love:
