Oh, hey! Man, this is embarrassing. You catching me without my pants on as I look at these scans of a 100-page Zelda art book that was recently bundled with the February 2010 issue of the Japanese gaming magazine Nintendo Dream. See I spilled on my pants and had to take them off, it's not that this art book is so cool that I become sexually aroused. Not. At. All.
The art runs the gamut of Zelda games, from the very beginning all the way up to the one piece of art they've shown us for the next Zelda. It really gives you an idea of how Link, Zelda and Gannondorf have evolved over the years. I'm a bit upset that they gloss so easily over the early games, but I guess they didn't do quite as much artwork for them in the first place.
Now go away. It's Matt time.
