Zelda : Breath of the Wild
Images Inspired by the Game
These six images were inspired the Nintendo Switch game 'The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild'. I created two still lifes, two landscapes and two portraits - all photographs taken by myself and edited in Photoshop.
I wanted to focus on a few visual motifs depicted throughout the video game: such as light and dark, and the two colours blue and orange which feature in several important events/items in the game. Two repeated visuals shown in the six images link (pardon the pun) them all together: blue light streaks that mimic the visual of Link turning into blue light as he teleports, and fairy-like light particles that convey fireflies and fantasy.
A few of these images were then applied to more commercial settings: event posters and tickets for an escape room, t-shirt designs, postcards and a magazine. The text in the magazine is a written piece in the form of journal-styled entries, told from Link's perspective as he goes along his journey through the game whilst also remembering what happened 100 years ago.
