Deku Designs by NateHallinanArt Deku Designs by NateHallinanArt

Playing around with some Deku designs. Yet, another creature from Hyrule. (Legend of Zelda) I feel like there's just so many interesting potentials in this world and I'm just scratching the surface. See the final concept here: natehallinanart.deviantart.com…

This is amazing.
I feel sad that it won't be any soon before video games can actually handle any renders like these :(

Fantastic designs! I love how different their silhouettes are and the tonal values are handled amazingly.

This has to be one of the best Zelda monster designs I've ever seen. I can't think of the right words to describe it, but...they look like living trees. I'm sorry that sounded stupid, but I'm thinking about and comparing this to they're official design in Ocarina of Time, which looked more like giant, walking flowers.

I'm in love with the last two designs. I think Deku can come in many shapes and sizes because they resemble nature itself. Although, the first one only throws me off because of its' many eyes, which seems more monstrous than treefolk critter.

Very cool. They're so much creepier than the in game ones but that only makes them so much more realistic. Great work :)

They almost remind me of bellsprout > victreebell evolutions combined with bulbasaur > venosaur.

I love the designs, I really hope that one of the next Zelda games can be creepy enough for these designs. Full on OoT Forest Temple Theme eerie.

These are so awesome~  I've got some friends making a zelda based tabletop rpg, and they've got me doing art for their bestiary. It's fun interpreting some of the zelda critters~

Yea I haven't played it yet, though they've done multiple test runs. I just haven't had the interest to actually play.
