They Came... by glitcher They Came... by glitcher
This is my entry for the Operation Moonfall art contest to promote The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Not only is that my favourite game in the Zelda series, but it's my favourite game, period. I can think of no better way to express my love for Majora's Mask by painting one of my favourite scenes in the game: protecting Romani Ranch from an alien attack. Saving princesses be damned! Nothing says 'hero' like rescuing cute ranch girls from ghouls and marauders. Having said that, I always found it strange that Romani (NOT Malon!) cowers in the barn after practising all day shooting balloons with her bow. What was the point of that? After reading the spin-off Franco-Belgian comic "Louve", which features a gifted young Viking girl training to be an archer, I think having Romani team-up here would have been more memorable than just letting 'Grasshopper' do all the work. Oh, and notice how Epona is absent. Seriously, does anyone go riding around trying to shoot Them on horseback? I just camp in front of the barn with my trusty Hero's Bow.... until that one bugger sneaks around behind the house and scuppers my whole plan. :disbelief:


YOU CAN WATCH A VIDEO PLAYBACK OF THIS PAINTING HERE.

EDIT: This image won the grand prize of the Operation Moonfall contest! Everybody in the house say "Way-oh!" :winner:

I always loved this quest.  One of my favorites of all time.  It was intense with clear stakes, and meanwhile it was so different in tone from the game that it ruled!  This one really did make me feel like a hero.

I remember being scared of Ganon the first time I played OoT. Before the final battle even begun, I thrust the controller into my friend's hands because I just couldn't handle it. :XD:

I circle the barn constantly when I do this bit. The dog actually helped a surprising amount, warning me when a beastie got too close, and showing me where it was.
