    Default The Legend of Zelda: A Mod to the Past (16-Bit Link)


    Time-lapse video link:

    Hi, it's my fourth modding year and coincidentally it's my 4th computer mod! I put this in the work-in-progress forum but it's done. I like to focus on the case until it's done then post the work log . This time I delve into the Zelda Universe and also experiment with 16-bit character models instead of the normal 8-bit. I got this together in about 5-6 weeks and due to more colors b/c of the 16-bit model it took longer to paint. I wasn't as good at taking pictures as I did last year with the 8-Bit White Mage but I still got a time lapse of the whole creation of the case.The link to the video is at the beginning/end of this post. This is the smallest case I have made in relation to room of the parts going in. Let's dive right in shall we:

    Computer Specs:
    AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0GHz
    ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX
    ATI 6950
    120 Gig SSD (1 Tb sata storage drive)
    G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333

    The motherboard uses laptop memory which was surprising when I read it but has to do with the motherboards small size.

    Starting out with the basic frame of Link's body.






    After I began working on his head began to realize the space limitations in my apt and the tools that I needed to use. Also began to contemplate how I was gonna fit a mid to High end Pc inside this small case...


    Head and Shoulders (TradeMark)






    First view of the shield being in place


    Link likes to rock. (O.O) \m/


    Test sword in place after realizing how prominent it is to drill that deep in acryllic w/o a press to keep it straight.


    LIGHT!!!!! Ok, not that exciting but it gives a nice glow







    Got some paint on him but still needed to tighten up the lines




    The test sword with a point


    Aaaaaaaaannnnnddddddd the finished Mod!

    Very cool mod. I love Zelda for sure. It's the first game I even played start to finish.

    It actually pushes you to really get a move on also knowing a camera is capturing the process.

    Can appreciate doing things like this must take a load of planning & preparation.
