The above might elicit one of two reactions. Either "wow that’s a really nice take on the original's cel-shaded style." Or "Jesus, there was NOTHING wrong with Wind Waker's look; why must people constantly try to fix what wasn't broken?"
Thankfully, instead of going the full-on photorealistic, Reddit user thepixelartist's HD update is conservative and tasteful. Though I'm conflicted if I like this second take, with more realistic trees, as opposed to original take.
Sure they look, but are a bit too much of a departure, plus clashes with some of the other foliage. At least Ganon's new look is unquestionably terrific, seen after the cut.
