The Windfish by Pertheseus The Windfish by Pertheseus
Links Awakening is one of the coolest Zelda games and for me one of the most mysterious.
I imagined that huge windfish just flying out of the clouds during a plane flight and this came out, I also added Link with his flying rooster which has been highly neglected in other games but oh well.

update-

Holy crap a DD thanks for the comments-
I havent read all the comments cause I ve already had some skyward spoilers but thanks to everyone

Also people I know its a whale, I watch animal planet too but its called the Windfish in the game and it flies and its hatched from a giant egg so lets not get too technical.

Oh yes!  Link's Awakening was the first video game I ever owned.  The Windfish is great and you did him justice.

I think it's really funny how useful chickens can be in the LoZ games and I love how you've captured the awesome absurdity of that. Not to mention the epicness of encountering a big, fantastic creature like the Windfish. Kudos to ya!

I'm sorry since I am a Japanese, when English has an unnatural place.

I like Links Awakening very much.
I was impressed seeing this picture.

It is very great that windfish sails in the crevice between clouds in this way.
