The fan who took on the challenge of creating a massive clay map from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s Hyrule is back, adding two new locations.
One of the most beloved Nintendo 64 games of all time still inspires many fans to this day. There have been many awesome remix albums, artwork, and even a speedrun within Super Smash Bros. Brawl’s limited fashion masterpiece achieved through incredible dedication to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. One fan loves the game enough to make little clay models of all of their locations, providing social media updates as they go.
Using accounts with the username ZeldaModel, the talented artist made sure to post plenty of updates regarding his pet project, which has grown significantly over the past few months. Since its last update on Reddit, two new locations have been added to the full model Ocarina of time card that the builder makes little by little.
ZeldaModel has shown Lon Lon Ranch and Goron City in its latest updates, fearing awesome little hay bales and rock paintings as part of the many details that bring the map model to life. Goron City itself is quite impressive, as its multi-layered form is carefully modeled, with small cave entrances and even ropes for the ropes up to the central platform.
On Twitter there are even more recent updates, as the Australian automaker shared videos of his paint job and as he puts the model parts in place. One of his videos showed Death Mountain being fully colored, needing only props, with a “retractable” cloud cover so viewers could see inside.
Make a diorama of Ocarina of time Famous Places is already a great way to pay homage to the game’s memorable world, but the fact that ZeldaModel has gone far enough to make it a full-scale map is impressive in itself. The level of detail of each location on such a large scale is also impressive and shows just how dedicated the creator of this project is.
When it comes to ZeldaModel’s love for the Nintendo 64 game, it’s not limited to his craft. The ZeldaModel account also promoted a charitable stream of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time all of the proceeds of which are donated to funding cancer research in Australia. It looks like ZeldaModel wants to help a heroic cause while celebrating the adventures of the hero of Hyrule.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is now available for Nintendo 64, Wii U and 3DS.
