Hero of Time

Happy new year, everyone! Hope you had a nice, safe Christmas. ^^ Now that 2007 is upon us, it's time to get the contest into full swing! Can you believe it's almost been 10 years since Ocarina of Time made its debut? Many of you are currently enjoying Twilight Princess, and it is indeed an excellent game, but I must confess that OoT is still my favorite. In fact, this contest is dedicated to its memory, that it may continue to be honored amidst the popularity of newer titles. This Link, the ancestor of all the Links destined to become heroes in the legend to which he gave birth, truly is the Hero of Time!

Over the next few weeks I'll be making rounds to advertise the contest in new places, as well as remind and rekindle interest in those already aware. Once the TP fever cools down a bit I'm hoping for a rash of entries! If you have any artistic friends or relatives who might like to participate, you're encouraged to invite them as well! Thanks, everyone, for helping make this a success!

Hey! I've been following this for a little while, and finally decided to comment.

I'm playing Twilight Princess now, and the more I play it, the more I like it. I can't choose between TP and OoT right now, but they are at the same level for me currently. I really like TP, but I mean, OoT has been my favorite game for years...

It's super cool/nice you're really giving out a Wii. I'm thinking about submitting a drawing myself, but I'm unsure of what exactly to draw...maybe I'll think of something in the days to come. I'll let you know if I do whip something up. Just so you can identify me, I'll be known from now on as Dann. That's not my real name, and I'm a girl, just to let you know.

Hey there, Dann, thanks for posting! TP is quite the awesomeness indeed, and the story really comes full circle at the end, which is what I love the most about it! Enjoy, but please don't forget about the contest! I really hope to see an entry from you. As for ideas, hmmmm, how about something romantic? ^^

Hello again! Sounds like the contest's going well so far. That's great! Are comics allowed as submissions if they're single-page? Like, gags or something.

Thank you! Have a wonderful New Year! :D

Got your next entry, GL_Link, thanks! I've sent you a confirmation e-mail. As for ideas for the next pic, how about something serene for a change of pace? Give Link something to smile about! ^^

And yes, comics are acceptable, as long as their content abides by the official rules. How silly or serious to make it is up to you and whatever tickles your fancy. Can't wait to see it!

Hello, just a small word to say what a wonderful idea your contest is, I read about it on Ganonstower.com forum. I personally love looking at Zelda fanart. It's amazing what some people can draw. Anyway I sent you a submittion of my own but it's just to encourage people to send in their own, so I'm not really interested in the prizes. I read a previous comment where someone asked you to post the entries but you didn't have enough space. I run a small Oot website so I'd be happy to have a section for your contest.

Thanks a bunch, both of you! You should receive your confirmation e-mails soon if you haven't already. As for posting, I hadn't initially planned on posting the entries until after the contest, but I've been receiving a lot of requests to post them sooner, so I may end up doing that if I can. But first, a poll! Check back for the chance to post your opinion on some things!
