.: It Looks So Sad... :. by ShadowScarKnight .: It Looks So Sad... :. by ShadowScarKnight
" ... like it could start crying at any moment..."

ahh, after seeing a picture ~Ryanknight did of Deku Link, I suddenly had a strong urge to draw Deku Link myself... as well as another sad Deku...

fff, when I first saw this... ... I had no idea what it meant, even when it showed the Deku Butler. Back then, when I was younger, I just wanted to beat the game. But after actually paying attention to the dialogue, and stringing together conclusions that the transformation masks require the death of an individual... ... yeah, this actually hurt me. D: And here I just wanted to pay a little tribute to that scene, and the [supposed] deceased Deku Butler's son.

Not to mention I haven't drawn Legend of Zelda fanart in years, so... hey, here ya go. Pardon the crappy coloring >x>;

and yes I know the location is wrong. :T I just wanted there to be more depth... distance in the background.

Legend of Zelda belongs to Nintendo.

Oh, man. That reasliation was exacty the same for me. This game was so incredible in that way; how I first played it as a kid, paying no attention to the characters and their personal stories – and then rediscovering everything with new eyes, after I downloaded it from the Virtual Console. This exclusive experience really gave this game such an exquisite sense of depth for me, as I discovered a sense of compassion for the characters, understanding them individually and what they were going through emotionally. A few years later, this experience of rejuvenation escalated even further, when I stumbled upon the article Stone Tower of Babel: Why Termina was Doomed. A whole new perspective dawned upon me, regarding the creation of Termina itself, why it had come to where it was at, and what exactly Majora was. Everything that previously had seemed like a chaotic fantasy world began to make sense to me, as I discerned this new perspective and discovered my own realisations. It's truly been a journey for me to explore this game and all the layers of depth that it had for me.

Honestly speaking, Majora's Mask is my favorite Zelda game in the entire series. I've played the game so much that I memorized not only where everything is, but how I've been playing the game for the last 14 years.

I didn't think of that, I had always thought the butler son ran away.  I know the Goron and Zora died so Link go the mask but I thought he got the Deku mask because He was turned in too one my skull kid, so thereforth it  maybe the deku kid did not die.

It's definitely possible that he ran away. If you think about it, how the transformational masks contain the spirit of the beings they were created from, it would seem sensible that the Deku Mask also contains the spirit of the Deku Buttler's son. However these two beings ended up intervening, I think it may have ended with the Skull Kid using the power of Majora's Mask to absorb the deku child's spirit, and then transform his body into a tree. He would then use Majora's power to extract the deku child's spirit into Link's body, and thus transform him into the deku child's form. When Link then plays the Song of Healing for the first time, the deku child's spirit is released from his body and transformed into a mask.

You after heavy thinking you probably right. I didn't pay much attention to Deku Son because the very beginning really didn't have much of an impact of me. Don't get me wrong, this my favorite game of the series but the beginning is not best

It's sort of a retrospect moment, though. You would only realise after seeing the end credits, when it reveals the cutscene showing the Deku Butler grieving next to the tree. :hmm:

Ugh, wow... this picture... It kind of hit me. I mean, I knew about the Butler's song, but seeing this picture really hit me on how sad this really is. Dang the details in his game.

Your coloring is very lovely! I love the shine on his hair and hat.

Wrong!

... That's the empty shell, the EMBODIMENT of the Deku Mask/Deku Butler's son! If the Deku Butler really had a stiff lifeless body/statue of a Deku child as a son that'd be creepy as all hell, not to mention he'd probably face dire legal consequences with his tribe. :lol:

Oh gads this kills me.... this kills me dead with feels. So stark and alone and cold.... T_T

And all the angles are perfect. It's somehow better that you can't see Link's face, or the entirety of the other Deku, really.

Ough his poor little leaves all withered.... :sniff:

Thank you for making this. :iconheartbreakplz:

your supposed "crappy coloring" really fits the mood of that scene. but I felt the same way as you as I also was very young on my first playthrough of majora's mask. I think the first time I really recognized this was after I saved mikau and he faded away right before my eyes, leaving his soul to become the zora mask. mm might not be my favourite game gameplay wise, but in terms of story there is hardly another zelda title that can keep up with the depth majora's mask brings into it's characters. amazing artwork.

I love this game so much! I've always wondered what that tree was until I found out it was the Deku Butler's son. Playing the Elergy of Emptiness shows a statue of him alive, but I'm not sure if that's really what he looked like.
Anyways, this art is pure nostalgia! Makes me wanna play it again. ;u;

God this is only one of the reasons why I regard Majora's Mask so high on my favorite games of all time. It's moments like these that are hard to emulate in most modern-day games.

Also I MUST learn your techniques : O
