Looks good! The caption "Link carrying the Hero's Crest" needs fixing up though!


Thanks for pointing that out! Bad proofreading on my part. That's fixed and here is the full two page spread.

This is going to sound like a strange, petty thing to say, but thank you for using the western names for your scanlations, rather than, say, using the name "Dal Blue" with an asterisk or something. I hate it when fan-translated stuff does that.

Wow, great work Beno; that looks amazing. Feel free to use my scans as a template if you want to, by the way. Their quality may not be that great, but just tell me if you want me to fix up any particular page.

Also, I have now uploaded the remaining unscanned parts of the timeline section, which means that the entire timeline has been scanned. I've also edited my first post to include all scanned pages in order for the sake of having them all organized in one place.

Not sure if anyone is still interested, but I scanned a few pages from the artwork section at the request of someone on GameFAQs. I'm not sure whether or not the rest of the book has been scanned yet, but anyone is interested in seeing more artwork, please feel free to request it.

And for those who are interested, looks like they explained just what it was that Zelda gave Midna in that much-debated scene in Twilight Princess:

Princess Zelda, whose soul had been residing in Midna up until that point, covers Link using the Light Arrows.

Here's an interesting part I found in Twilight Princess' artwork section.

The Sages

The original design was meant to be reminiscent of Rauru, as seen to the right.
Surely, the mask that conceals his face is meant to hide the fact that he looks like Rauru.


I may scan the relevant page as well later.

Wow, yeah, I'd be interested in seeing that. But I wonder if that means he's still intended to be Rauru or not...

Always happy to be of assistance.

And I may be a bit busy these next few days, but I'll put up scans whenever I'm able to. If there are any specific parts you'd like me to scan, don't hesitate to ask.

Here it is. It's a bit hastily scanned, but I hope that's alright.

And yeah, unfortunately they're still unclear about that. Still, while changing the design is understandable, I can't understand why they'd change his identity as well. I suppose they've done stranger things before though.

Thanks a lot. I'm kinda confused which design they're talking about there, since the one who actually wears robes that look like Rauru's seems to have a human face instead of a mask...or maybe it's just a less obvious mask.

Mhm, it took me quite a while to notice that too; it's a lot more difficult to spot than Onox's Gerudo symbol. I suppose it further shows their connection to Twinrova.

Yeah, I much prefer the top left Veran design over her final one, personally. And they sadly don't explain why they originally made Byrne look like a dog, but I suppose it may be because he's a Lokomo warrior. As you'll see in these scans, some early Lokomo designs weren't as human as the ones we finally got:

ST Lokomo

http://i43.tinypic.com/2nicfaw.png

Another interesting thing to note is that early Ilia designs looked a lot like Saria and had a picture of Navi on her forehead. Apparently, they were both based on similar concepts, in that they both worried a lot.

Whoa! So much to say!

I find it interesting how Ilia had some earlier designs similar to Malon, and others similar to Saria. Judging by her name and her relationship as Link's childhood friend/big sister figure, I always thought she was somewhat based on Saria from OoT.

The ALttP concept art is really interesting. Was ALttP originally going to have a futuristic cyber-punk setting? And does this canonically mean that Zelda is shorter than Peach? I always figured it be the other way around because I always imagined Hylians as being these tall nordic types.

Umm, Zelda is taller than Peach in that picture... XD

The Sci-Fi Zelda design is interesting... it reminds me of this LoZ manga.

Possibly. The text on that page does say that the design was intentionally Sci-Fi-styled. However, it's a bit ambiguous on whether or not that particular style was ever meant to be implemented or if it was just something they drew for fun.


Anyway, here's another batch of scans:

Thank you for your efforts guys!
I would like to ask if someone (maybe stupiddimbulb :) ) can (re)post pages 166 and 199, I've searched them for a while but couldn't find anything.
As for the other pages, I have all those scanned so far (except 166 and 199 of course), so feel free to ask if you need some.

Thank you very much for your awesome work Snow!(and Beno too!) Keep it up!
