Fun Stuff: Link ponders an Impressionist Hylian Night

Today’s Fun Stuff is actually kind of morose, considering we’re calling them fun stuff. Still, if you are a fan of Vincent Van Gogh, you will like this one.

Artist Girardin27 reinterprets The Legend of Zelda, particularly the world of Majora’s Mask, under Gogh’s post-Impressionist eye. Whereas Gogh’s strokes in Starry Night has received a diverse range of interpretations, the addition of the Moon and his menacing visage makes the swirls equally menacing, as if to evoke a simmering anger in the night sky.

For comparison’s sake, I’m placing the original painting and the fan art side by side for you to ponder here.
