Artist Imagines What A Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Movie Trailer From Studio Ghibli Might Look Like

Back in 2015, artist Matt Vince put together a series faux movie posters imagining a Studio Ghibli take on The Legend of Zelda. Vince took things a step forward recently, by creating a trailer for his Ghibli Zelda movie.

You can check out the video below which marries Vince's art with a solemn, piano rendition of some familiar Zelda music. Its resemblance to a Ghibil movie, (Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke) really is uncanny. Zelda is a franchise I don't know that I ever actually want to see adapted into a film, but if it were to be done, I think I would be happy if it looked like this.

For more from Vince, you can check out his Tumblr page here.

Dishonored And Half-Life 2 Artist Viktor Antonov Joins Darewise Entertainment

Viktor Antonov, the man behind creating the environments of both Dishonored's Dunwall and Half-Life 2's City 17, is now joining Darewise Entertainment.

Antonov was the art director and conceptual artist for Half-Life 2, and the visual design director for Dishonored. Now, he's bringing his expertise to Darewise, a studio headed by former Ubisoft director Benjamin Charbit. Darewise is currently working on Rokh, a mutliplayer survival game that takes place on Mars. It's a project that Antonov believes is right up his alley.

"What I’ve been doing for the past 20 years is creating sci-fi worlds," he says in the video below. "Everything starts with a pencil, a synopsis, and a script."

Our Take
With Antonov's track record, I'm optimistic that Rokh will have some stellar environmental artwork. Thinking back to my time with Dunwall in Dishonored, it was a city with tons of personality. I look forward to seeing what he brings on this new venture, even though I don't know much about Rokh yet. – The Feed

Artist Re-Imagines Pokémon With A Canadian Twist

Artist Darren Calvert has taken familiar Pokémon, but given them a bit of a northern twist. I recently consulted our resident Canadian and fellow intern, Haley MacLean, to help break down the parody behind each Canadian Pokémon.

  • Number 725, Dubbledubble: This Pokémon is a play on a type of coffee with "two creams, two sugars" often ordered at the popular Canadian coffee chain, Tim Hortons – the Pokémon is styled after the shop's cup, as well.
  • Number 734, Bobndug: A take on the Pokémon Diglett, Bobndug is reference to Bob and Doug McKenzie, fictional Canadian characters created by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. 
  • Number 830, Hoser: In Canada, according to MacLean, to call someone a "Hoser" is to refer to them as "trash," possibly the reasoning behind why the Pokémon looks so angry. The term originates from hockey, where losing teams would have to hose down a rink to smooth out cracks.
  • Number 780, Loonie: Canadian one dollar coins are referred to as "Loonies," and feature pictures of the loon bird. "There's a lot of Loons where I'm from [Halifax]," MacLean adds.
  • Number 811, Pux: "Just some good old hockey pucks," MacLean says.
  • Numbers 821 and 822, Poutiny and Poutitan: A play on the famous gross food, poutine. Which, according to MacLean, is the best drunk food ever created.

It is currently not known if these Pokémon will be featured in the Canadian version upcoming augmented-reality game, Pokemon Go.
