The Hero Crossing Death Mountain by rollingrabbit The Hero Crossing Death Mountain by rollingrabbit
This image flashed through my mind when I saw Jacques-Louis Davidís Napoleon Crossing the Alps for a half second earlier today. Iíve seen a few parodies of it, but I didnít think I had seen a Zelda one? If there already was oneÖ D-donít tell me. I spent way too much time painting this. Way more time than any one person should have.

I probably should have spent that time finishing Skyward Sword, huh? Yeah.

Nice XD 

Although this looks a lot like Gerudo Valley too, but you weren't allowed to bring Epona into the deeper desert parts of it.

Either way, this is great. You put a lot of effort into this and it deserves credit :)
