The Legend of Zelda: Furnix Cake

Over on what is fast becoming my new home, deviantART, a group called Game Art HQ was hosting an ART collab called Link's Blacklist. It's a fan art tribute to The Legend of Zelda. But instead of featuring the usual types of fan art, this art collab ventured to be something different. It features only enemies from The Legend of Zelda. It involved 60 artists and each artist had to claim a different enemy from the series so there are no repeats. If you're a fan of the series, or even if you're not, you should go check out the gallery. The standard there is amazing.

Now, this group accepts only quality fan art. I'm a digital art newbie, so instead of drawing something, I turned to a medium I was more advance in. Cakeage.

I chose to do Furnix from Skyward Sword.



You encounter these enemies when you enter the Ancient Cistern. I saw these gorgeous birds flying around and hoped I wouldn't have to kill something so beautiful. Then they started spitting fireballs at me. Sigh.

There are so many gorgeous elements to Skyward Sword. The aesthetic of that game make me swoon. So it was a delight to recreate something from the game.

Or, at least, it was when I first embarked on the project. I've never had so many things go wrong with a cake before. This was the most stressed I had ever been when making a cake.

Wow! Just wow!
Thank you! ♥
You created an unbelievable amount of detail in the furnix. Would have been so frustrating with all the troubles along the way, but hopefully made it more worthwhile and rewarding for you in the end. Can't imagine the hours of patience you had to do this.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to stab the cake, or stab myself with it. :P Can't believe I got it finished in the end.

This is awesome! Do you mind if we feature this at Nintendo Nation? Thanks :)
Not at all! I would be honoured. :]

Loved your writing style, and of course your work is mind-shattering.

I love your subject matter too! It's awesome that you're bringing out and highlighting just how detailed Skyward Sword really was, even down to the creatures that you see in a few dungeons.

Massive props! :D
Thank you so much!

My favourite thing about making fan art is that it makes you pay very close attention to the design. There is such endless work that goes into the most minute aspects that is hard to appreciate until you start to analyse it. Trying to replicate it makes me appreciate it all the more.
Absolutely incredible :)
Thank you!

Amazing. After all you did, I can understand the tail not looking as good as you'd want it to.
