Zelda and The Ancestral Swords

In celebration of E3 kicking into full gear, and new Zelda on the horizon, now is a great time to unveil a piece I did for my patreon ( a few months ago.

I wanted to envision what a Zelda game would look like if I had full creative control and so I present to you “Zelda and The Ancestral Swords”. A world where Zelda is the central character, as she explores her matrilineage and reincarnated forms (e.g. Sheik and the goddess Hylia).

You can learn more about this piece, see more exclusive illustrations, and get some pretty cool rewards by subscribing to my patreon, Melanin Mythologies, at I recently revamped things so that the rewards are a little bit more exciting as well (custom drawings, prints, etc). So I would love any support so I can continue making images like these!

Thanks and all the best,
