I'm not sure I see the point in tracing the original footage other than maybe personally learning a few things in the process, but to upload it as your own animation without even mentioning that you just traced it doesn't seem right to me. It is quite well traced and must have taken some time plus it's Zelda (which I love) so that's why you get one star from me.

Very WELL done!
Epic depiction of the actual game play, and literally spot on! You must have really loved the game as much as everyone else did when it first was released :)
God knows I loved it and still play it to date just because I can :p
Ahh the memories of bashing away at ganon's face...lol!

Epic Amazing Genius! I have never scene anyone capture those cutscenes from the game through animation. Great work.

Rustyhound responds:

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Did you trace this? It looks like you took gameplay video and traced over it.

Rustyhound responds:

That's right! I took the trailer for the HD remake and traced over it frame by frame.

I've never seen anything like it, besides the game grumps shadow of the colossus (?) animation. You're the guy who did them, aren't you?

Rustyhound responds:

Haha, You're thinking of Tithinian. I'm not him, but he definitely inspired me to make this. I saw how cool it looked and figured that I should do it for one of my favorite games, In the end I picked Wind Waker.
