    Those are some pretty cool pictures.

    It's too bad nintendo would never pick this up, because it'd make a pretty awesome new Zelda game.

    Looks nice but I hate Link's short hair and Zelda in general.

    I like it, though.

    I like them better, you can't really have a post-apocalypse world with kawaii animu faces.

    Good for fan-fiction i suppose. The only thing i dislike about his designs is the Hero's Sword. It looks really...... well, they are not that good

    Eh, I don't really like it. It doesn't look typically "post apocalyptic", just Zelda with some different art. Nothing struck me as "post apocalyptic" except for the cover art. Which even then kinda fell flat for me when Link's "shield" is a riot shield for the "Hyrule Police". Because apparently they can develop a police force and riot gear but fuck guns.

    Plus their faces are kinda odd. Not because they're not "kawaii anime faces" but they're just odd. Zelda's also got a mean case of man face.

    If Nintendo DID pick this up for a future idea, they'd have to tone it down a bit. But this is a really good idea.

    It's a good thing that Ganon and Zelda have access to completely intact, snazzy formal wear in a destroyed, burnt out world.

    I don't know; the art is certainly nice, but I doubt it would be enough to sustain an entire game.

    I wouldn't like such a game. Besides, not that his drawings are bad, but I would find this design awful in a Zelda game.

    Just because he doesn't have a hard to maintain, hard to keep stocked gun, doesn't mean they don't exist.

    I know Fallout has bullets in every single container, desk, drawer, safe, etc, but that's not actually how things would work. A sword (or any melee weapon, really) is more realistic in a post apocalyptic scenario, unless it takes place in the US where you literally WOULD find bullets everywhere to use.
    Even putting that aside, guns are also pretty...fragile...in reality. They do require some TLC after a while of use, which is another thing you'd have fun finding in a post-apocalyptic world. He'd have to pick up a new gun pretty often, which would likely already be halfway to disrepair, and he'd need different bullets for it most likely.
    Though, yeah, I do think his "Sword" and shield are a little too shabby in the pictures.


    aaand finally, I do agree with Zelda lacking some femininity. I'm sure she's gotta be all tough and tomboyish to survive, but her face needs some work.

    I see no reason not to. :P
    It fit the idea of what they are going for. Also it not like they are the master sword.
    I agree, but how would it be made more femininity? Smaller neck and face?

    It would look like they need to chose the act style that is more "kawaii animu". The one that look the most princess-like is the one I'm referring to.

    In the second source, it has different bowguns.

    Skyward Sword in a way could also be considered post apocalyptic.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    have any of you seen the movie The Book of Eli? having a sword there was totally believable, not to mention awesome, yet the guy with "power" and his lackeys had guns.

    maybe a limited number of people control the remaining ammo. also, it could be that some monsters are impervious to bullets. maybe you'll get a magic shield that is impervious to bullets later on. gotta agree with Zelda having a manly face. maybe it's the hair.

    all that being said, if i wanted to play something like a post-apocalyptic Zelda, I would play Crystalis for the NES.
