The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for 3DS is almost here, which means the hype train is in overdrive, and Nintendo's doing everything it can to get people interested in Link's revamped adventure. The company's throwing an art competition on the Miiverse, kicked off by series producer Eiji Aonuma himself, and it's resulted in some truly incredible submissions by fans.

The competition is still ongoing, actually. Aonuma asked folks to download Art Academy: Sketch Pad, theme their creations around Majora's Mask, and submit all pieces by March 1.

Things got off to a bumpy start, though.


Fortunately, people seemed to figure out how to download Art Academy: Sketch Pad, and it quickly becomes apparent how much talent's hiding within Nintendo's most fervent fanbases.


I wouldn't mind if some of these were made available as proper wallpapers for my computer!

Here's a sampling of my favorites:



I've saved one image for last, though. Warning: this art might give you nightmares.


There's much more where this came from in the Miiverse thread. Enjoy!
